Sold to Stato11

For sale:
One dearly loved laptop. Selling due to upgrade.
Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 5160 with the following specification:
Intel Pentium 4 HT processor (2.8GHz, 533MHz FSB, 1M Cache)
15” screen
Built in 802.11b/g mini PCI wireless card
60GB (5,400rpm) IDE hard drive
512MB 333MHz DDR Memory (2x256MB)
Microsoft Windows XP Home SP2
24x CDRW / 8xDVDrom combo drive
64MB DDR nVidia(R) GeForce(TM) 5200

Has been restored back to factory settings so will be ready for you to personalise.
All runs well and up until last week had been my main (and only) computer which I used for the internet, watching DVDs, burning CDs, word processing and general faffing with my PSP, camera, printing etc
Now on to the slight downside of this laptop..
1. Unfortunately as with all laptops over time, the battery doesn’t hold much charge and makes the battery light flash on the front (which never bothered me as it was plugged in all the time anyway). This I’m sure could easily be resolved with a new battery or if like me, by using it plugged in.
2. There is an intermittent fault with the mouse button. When clicking, sometimes the mouse either wont click or click more than once. Again I’m sure somebody who knows what they’re doing will be able to fix this. The track pad works perfectly and can also be used for clicking items by tapping it, this works fine. The only time I find the mouse a bit annoying is if I want to click and drag something as you have to click the mouse in ‘just the right place’
3. Again with a lot of laptops, it does get quite warm after using it for a while. I was able to sit with it on my lap for several hours with no problems, but somebody may find it annoying/uncomfortable.

Other than the few more irritating than anything problems, the laptop is a good little runner and has served me well! : )

Cosmetically the laptop is in good condition, has the odd nick here and there, but nothing major.

Will be supplied very well packaged and includes the laptop, battery pack/charger, Microsoft Works 7 disc, original software discs that were supplied and any paper work that I can find (not sure what actually came with it, but will check)

Am not really sure what to ask for this laptop, so for the moment will say £250ono delivered. (payment by Bank Transfer/Cash/Cheque preffered)

Any questions or any more specifics, please let me know
