I am after a desktop pc or laptop as cheap as possible, Not after anything too fancy as long as it will be fairly quick for browsing the net and uploading pictures etc. I would use it a little to store music on and maybe watch shows online but I do not play games or download movies etc.

I only really want to buy something from a member who has a lot of positive feedback and no negative as I cannot risk buying something that will let me down in the near future as had 2 computyers break on me in the last week. Let me know anything that you have with info and price please. Thank you
Shipping/Payment:
Payment by PPG, postage by courier so item is tracked etc
Location:
Great Yarmouth

That will depend on the speed of your broadband more than the speed of your PC.

i offered a toshiba satellite sp100 laptop to another buyer here for £60 delivered nextday with courier, but he let me down.

it has a pentium 4m, 512mb ram, 30gb hard drive, wireless, dvd drive, 14.1 screen, however battery doesn't hold its charge but works fine on the charger, i have installed a fresh copy of xp professional, the COA is attached on the base.

Thanks. I'm assuming everything else works fine other than the battery not holding the charge? That isn't too much of a problem for us really. Is £60 the lowest price you can do it for?

yes i think it is a very good price as i will have to consider the delivery cost as well.

there isn't really any other problems, i will take a picture etc when i get home if you need, but it is a good little laptop, i had been using it for surfing the net on it mostly via the lan connector, but is has other connections too.

Ok great, a picture would be good. I am interested but will do a little reasearch on it until pic comes through. I am using a family members computer at the moment so will only be online for another hour so if I don't reply then I will get back to you tomorrow morning

Thanks Sagor, that looks like the sort of thing we need. If you are sure it runs fine and has no other problems then I am happy to take. Ideally would want it to be posted asap, when do you think you could have it delivered? Anyway let me know and if you send me a pm with your paypal details I will pay as soon as I get onto a computer again. Cheers

i had a quick play with it yesterday, as it had not bee used fo a long time until the other day when the last guy put a thread up for wanting a laptop. The laptop works fine, then fan does kick in after a little bit, but isn't very noisey, cosmetically very good for its age. The battery is the problem, it is dead. I never used the sdcard reader so not sure about that. I used paint and activated windows, some of the settings can be modified in the bios such as speed etc.

I would be looking to get it collected via courier, the quickest looks like it will be monday collection for delivery on tuesday.


pm incoming
