    We are on the lookout for a cheap laptop. Ideally with at least an i5. We wouldn't be interested in celeron or atom based units.

    Ideally you will be within reasonable distance for collection. We are based in Enfield

    Thanks

    Location: Enfield

    We as in the family. We tend to have a central computer as opposed to one each.

    The laptop we have is faulty hence the need for a replacement. We also have an aging desktop that we need to replace too hence the other wanted thread on the forum.

    Thanks, just checking you weren't trying to buy for an office or business. Usually the only people who use the wording 'we' when trading are pro-traders.

    Where abouts are you located? I'm interested and would purchase one of them without question provided you're within collection distance. Infact I could collect today again provided you're not based over 100 miles away or something.

    I'm placing my interest towards the i7 model but can I ask why the difference of £10 though? Is the i5 model slightly better in some way? Or is the extra cost down to condition?

    I am based in Watford.

    The difference is due to the processors/model. 8560 vs 8570.
    Pretty much the same in terms of performance.

    Watford is ideal. Would collection tonight/today be possible?

    I noted the difference in processors but was confused because the i5 model is the one priced slightly higher. That's why I was curious as to why. I'd have expected the i7 model to be more expensive.

    Is there a model you would recommend? I'm more drawn to the i7 model "just because i7" haha, you've mentioned the performance is the same, any difference in screen resolutions between the two models?

    Also I assume the hard drives are traditional hdd as opposed to ssd? edit : Apologies it clearly states HDD.

    Lastly I appreciate that you've offered these laptops elsewhere but ideally I'd love to be able to view them both this evening and decide in person if that's possible. As I've said I will definitely purchase one of them.

    When would be a convenient day and time to come and view them?

    I am very flexible so will work around you.

    Also could you clarify the resolutions of both laptops please, upon googling it seems as though they came in various resolutions including 1366x768, 1600x900 and 1080p

    ADMIN/MOD: For the record this sale did NOT take place due to NClarke61 making arrangements to meet and did not turn up.

    This coincided with Miss Mandy (Mod) recommending that I seek admin permission to sell multiple of these laptops, and therefore I did not chase him or report him.

    I have since been given permission to sell a limited amount of these laptops on the forum.
