Isn't the first buyer supposed to get it instead of the one who touches u the most

LOL! I need it for my sick son... he's dying so you should feel bad. What from? Umm... AIDS-cancer...

is this the one i like before?

at that price im seriously tempted.

give me 5mins to i check lol

i just want it for my coursework and to surf the internet, nothign else, please hold to i go speak to my bank(mum lol)

You would be helping a struggling Australian keep in touch with his extremely missed family on the otherside of the world by allowing him to purchase this laptop.....

I'll be the only one not to lie- I want it for myself to enjoy downloaded DivX on it

I will give you £200...and you can donate the other pound to Kenya

I'll give you £300 and you can have my dying son too

allstar2;1813303

is it a joke or not?



I doubt someone who seems to buy and sell a hundred laptops a week, would sell one for less than market value :whistling:

[COLOR="Red"]Thanks for all your great responses guys, but as most of you correctly guessed this was an April fool. Was getting tired of the weak efforts on misc, so thought I'd add my own weak effort on here. You must admit, I put a doubt in some of your minds at least! Well done to those who were having none of it and even went to the bother of adding extra context from knowledge on other threads/places (e.g. my Dad, Kenya, etc). I had a laugh - hope you did too! [/COLOR]

So is this still for sale??

£200 BT today!!! :thumbsup:

You should be banned until April 2009
