Vostro 1700
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T9300 (2.50 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 6 MB L2-cache)
Genuine Windows Vista® Business - English
3072MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM (1x1024 + 1x2048 MB)
320 GB (5.400rpm) SATA Dual Hard Drive (2x 160GB)
256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
Primary 9-cell Lithium-Ion Battery
Fixed Internal 8X DVD+/-RW Drive including Software
17.0" Widescreen WXGA+ (1440x900) TFT Display
Intel Pro Wireless 3945 802.11a/b/g Mini-Card - Europe
56.6k V.92 Capable Internal Modem & Adapter - UK
Bluetooth Card
Shipping/Payment:
I upgraded the processor from the 2.2GHz 4MB cache to the 2.5GHz 6MB cache
The processor was purchased from SCAN computers in the UK 1 week ago in a retail box and has a full year warranty.

Price for the exact same spec from Dell (alas with 1x250GB HD rather than 2x160GB) is £768.45 so you save £119 and get 70GB more space.
Postage is included in my price. If you are willing to pick it up then you can have it for £629 thus saving £149

I am selling this because I getting an XPS as a present for my graduation.

How many people have dial up, only 4%

Hi warmapplepie,

Why did you put the whole image here? I included the thumbnail in my post so that people can click on it and see the full sized one in a new window so that the forum is not slowed down for people with dial-up!!!

Could you please remove it?

Thanks :)

You are probably right, but even for that 4% we should try to avoid this :-D

I resized it to 640x480 so it looks ok now, thanks warmapplepie (I am hungry now!).

micloi did you say in the other thread that the two vostros your are selling are also on ebay?
#9
I put them there as well, just in case nobody is interested in this forum.
I can remove those if this is a problem though, just let me know.

Remove the listing here or on ebay as it will result in a ban if the mods/admin spot it.
You're lucky it's 1.43 and there are probably no mods around.

Scottishbloke:
You are probably the least friendly person I met from Scotland, and I have many friends from there.

I really think you should try to mind your own business and try to help new members in the forum rather than cause difficulties. This will help you get ahead in life as having friends is much better then making enemies. Just a friendly advice from someone with more life experience than you.

If the moderators want to ban me because I made a mistake for something I did not know that's fair enough but I do not think that this is something for you to worry about my friend. I am sure that you have better things to do in your life than read posts in forums and try to cause trouble to other people who you never met.

Best wishes,

Michael

I will remove the listing from here now that I know that it is not allowed and relist after the Ebay one expires as I paid for that and cannot afford just to cancel it. Thanks for pointing that out in a nice way warnapplepie.
banned#14
No, I'm a scam buster extraordinaire, not that for one moment I'm suggesting you're such a character. As I said on the other item, it's more a case of you not being upfront with your description of the item, then subsequently editing your post when challenged for the Dell Item Ref to further enlighten all about the history of the item for sale. All this will do is make buyers cautious and a sale less likely.

You may wish to quote your ebay username so that potential buyers may verify your good reputation. By doing so this will attract more interested members to the item(s) you have for sale.

Good luck.

It does say befre listing you should read and follow the FS/FT rules and it does state:

LISTING A TRADE, SALE OR REQUEST

(3) All sales must be listed and completed fully on the HUKD FS/FT forum. NO eBay, auction, classified or external links to an item listed elsewhere. You must not have the same item for sale or trade elsewhere online whilst listed here.
#16
no problem micloi, wait for it to expire, it may sell anyway...
People should help newbies, not bite their head off. :friends:

Lighten up everybody, Micloi is new and it's the Easter holidays.

Having trouble finding the said item on ebay, I might be interested subject to price and paypal protection, but I can't find it anywhere.

if Michael has only listed it recently then it might take a few hours to appear ;-)
#20
I couldn't find it either, there are lots on there
#21
Thanks for explaining your actions. As I said it is luck of experience in selling online that caused the mistakes that I made in my postings and not that I tried to scam anyone, I just offered the information that I deemed that was important at the original posts.

If someone was really interested in any of the laptops then I was willing to discuss things in more detail.
Sometimes when you offer all the info to everyone you just invite comments from people that just want to cause trouble rather then help so it's better to explain things to the interested parties directly.

Well, no harm caused and thanks for wishing me luck. Iam sure I will get to see both laptops very quickly as my price is very low compared to similar models elsewhere. (and I am so happy for getting the XPS as apresent that I do not really care anymore!).

I have listed both but as I am not allowed to give the link here then you might have to wait until they appear in the search,

If there is a forum-legal way to point you there then please let me know.

Am I allowed to give that out, I do not want any more trouble!!!

Micloi,

Of course you are, you've also just read the FS/FT terms :)

You are allowed to give out your username, it allows people to check out your reputation

My auctions do not appear though yet even when I search using my username, Maybe you need to wait a few hours. The direct links work but those I am pretty sure I cannot write here. (after reading the terms 3 times in the last 15 minutes just to make sure! :) )
#28
I can see the auctions now :)
