Found 12th Oct 2009
I bought the laptop out of carphone warehouse the other day and now have no need for my netbook .(The Acer Aspire One deal from Tesco - £99)I was wondering how much I should ask for it as I'm hoping to sell it.I changed the OS from Linux to windows xp.I will be including my receipt with the netbook so the buyer has warranty.Rep for help given.

You wouldnt legally be allowed to include Tiny XP on the machine. Probs best to restore it back to the default Linux install.

Yeah was thinkling I should do this.It slows the system down a little.Faster on linux.One just sold for £215.I was thinking of selling mine for £70!

I was just thinking.Does it void your warranty if you change OS even if you change it back?

Mod Edit.

Making bids outside FS/FT and inviting dealings via PM is not acceptable conduct.

I think on here you cant sell it for more than you paid? or something like that. May be wrong though. I am interested in it if you are thinking of selling on here

I'll give you £75 for it. You can't sell it for more than you paid for it on here. Personally, I think that is a bogus rule, but it will only get expired if you do.
Your best bet is evilbay, but I will give you £75 if you can't be bothered, thanks.

*Mod Update:

Beyond the boundaries of a valuation, more akin to an offer. Not acceptable outside fs/ft.

Thanks for those offers but because I have no feedback wouldn't I have to post first?

would probably be best. what condition is it in? what do you have with it etc. If its in good condition and boxed with all leads etc, I could go to £90 delivered

Mod update:

That's deemed to be an offer, not acceptable outside fs/ft.

Mod Edit.

Invitation to deal outside fs/ft won't be tolerated.

Don't change it back to Linux...Most people want Tiny XP and if you have it the fan software to stop it going all the time. Anyone in the market for a second hand one will be a lot happier knowing they can put on Microsoft software

If you're going to sell it on here, you'll have to ask for this thread to be locked and then wait 7 days until you can list it on the FS/FT board.

tbh, for the price you paid I can't see why you can't get back what you paid for it. £99 was a bargain, so I'm sure even if you put it on here for say £95 + postage it'd sell :thumbsup:

Mod Edit.

Offer removed. FS/FT Offence.

Thread reviewed. No fs/ft transactions should be encouraged outside the correct forum.

Infractions issued to all who encouraged/participated in various rule breaches.

It begs the question if we should allow topics of a valuation nature. Whilst some appear to be genuine, others may seek to circumvent fs/ft restrictions put in place and attempt dealings.
