Firstly:

Long time poster, first time trying to sell. I have 100% feedback on ebay (89 in total), and can prove this with a message to a moderator if required.

I have my Asus eeePC for sale. its only about a month old. Works perfectly, but like most of the gadgets I "must" have, I never use it.

So I'm financing my new xbox purchase by selling this. Needless to say, its an exceptional machine, and if I had a use for it, I'd definately keep it.

Anyway, its the black model, its the 4G (With webcam, 512 ram, 4gb SSD hard disk).

It comes with Windows XP SP2 installed (a custom cut down version). Note: it it a legal activated copy, but the installation media is NOT included. You do however get the original disk with the xp drivers, and Linux OS reinstall software.

Postage is £20. Why? Because I will *only* send Special Delivery, and as its only 2KG, it will cost me £19.50 or there abouts.

I WILL allow collection though, in which case, as you might guess, there is zero extra fees. I'm in the North Nottinghamshire area.

I'd hope this is a good buy for someone who wants XP on an eeePC but doesn't want to faff about doing it themselves.

I'm in no rush to sell, and can put it on ebay if need be, so feel free to be honest if you don't think I'm gonna get a sale here!

Pictures will appear in post 2 in a few mins:

Corrections (I'm a bad typer!)

The paragraph:

"Postage is £20. Why? Because I will *only* send Special Delivery, and as its only 2KG, it will cost me £19.50 or there abouts."

should read:

"Postage is £20. Why? Because I will *only* send Special Delivery, and as its OVER 2KG, it will cost me £19.50 or there abouts."

Hi,

Just thought I'd let you know that Dixons are selling this for just over £203 so you may struggle to get your asking price on here. You may be better off selling it elsewhere.
Here is the link to the Dixons thread

Hi, Thanks, I'm aware of the dixons deal... and while I was a little annoyed - mine does come with a licenced copy of XP remember.

We'll see how it goes, and how much people want XP I guess! :D

Im guessing that is without xp though which would had a fair lump on to the price, not to mention hassle for someone inexperienced in using nlite and who wants it to be able to get up and go from the box!

If id got the cash handy I would seriously consider this over the dixons deal.

Does this come with an original receipt? That could easily make or break this items desirability!

fair enough. I wasn't being horrible, just wanted to make op aware of the competition.

It doesn't come with the receipt - I got it from Marshall Ward, which only gave me a delivery note. I will double check this and see if I can find it.

It hasnt been registered with Asus though, and comes with the warranty card. I'm hoping this is enough for the manufacturers guarantee.

I'll search for the devliery note/etc and can print out emails from Marshall Ward too, but consider a receipt not part of the deal for now.

No, I fully expected someone to link to the deal, and at least it gives me a chance to emphasise the XP bit! :D

just to add: Its a legal copy of XP (but disk not included). It was installed via the SD Card method, and is my custom nlite'd version of XP (based on one of the many guides available). Not a lot of missing really, nothing important, and it has around 2.75GB of space left on the SSD. It also comes with TweakUI installed (Tweaking program), moveMe (a eee specific application that allows you to move windows around - helps with the small res), and AsTray Plus - an extended version of the resolution changer, which allows bigger resolutions (they don't look very good so don't get your hopes up!).

Just to add my weight onto this.

I think this is a good deal and a more than fair price.

Having a licensed XP installed is a huge bonus for any non technical people who wishes to use this OS and would be able to do so "out of the box".

Thanks ToyBhoy.... The price is based on a £50 xp licence, but obviously I'm knocking it down a bit because I can't supply the disks. All I can say is that it was genuinely activated. If you're never gonna reinstall it, theres no problem - think PC World in the dark old days hehe. No cracks were involved etc, or any nasty business, and all updates and genuine checks pass correctly.

Hi vibeone :) Could you please provide feedback elsewhere, for eg an ebay username? Thanks.
banned#11
sure, however, its a completely username to here, so I will need to email you from it to prove it.

http://*************.co.uk/zoonyxnet

my username is based on my email address associated with my HUKD account (zoonyx.net). Send me an email and/or ebay message and I can reply, or whichever you'd rather do?

edit: It seems ebay links are banned! Either way, my ebay username is zoonyxnet and if you look at my account name history, you'll see i used to be vibeonecouk :D

No.

Simply because I can't remember which key I used! I've got them coming out of my eyeballs - OEM, retail and some student ones. I simple picked the first disk I found, and nlited it. I can give you a key, but it may not be the correct one, which would get me in more trouble, hence no key.

harlzter: Thanks for that, Please note the length of time I've been an ebay member as well :)
#15
you cant sell xp as a legal install without a COA
banned#16
fine whatever.

It has a OS on it.

Apparently its not legal. Bare that in mind bidders.

I'll leave this up for the rest of today, but if theres no interest I'll bang it on ebay.

Use keyfinder 1.51 to find out what the key is that you used. Just Google kf151.zip, run this program and it will tell you the key!! :thumbsup:
