    Hi, I have a Samsung X22 with T8300, 4GB RAM and 300GB HDD, I just recently upgraded works fine but has signs of use on mouse pad etc was thinking around £75inc. Has fresh Win7 installation (no disk tho, could include USB with key). Pretty sure I have the box in the loft. If you're interested let me know and I'll take some pics.

    I have a small laptop - 11" screen, and it is £60.00 delivered. Comes with Windows 10, and Office 2010, ac adapter, boxed. And bluetooth dongle and bluetooth headphones as the sound only works through bluetooth.

    sorry mate, can't go that low. Maybe £65?

    Alternatively I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook S6410 Notebook. It's a bit slow but if you just need something basic then it's fine. CPU is a T8100, 2GB RAM and 80GB HDD has Win 7 but could probably do with a fresh installation. I'd only want £45 for that one as like I said, it is a bit slow and has a bit of damage to one corner (all works fine tough).

    Hi,

    FTR it's actually a 320gb HDD - Windows key is a reclaimed one from eBay but any issues it was guaranteed so just let me know. I can't recall if I 'linked' it because I installed 32bit and thought buyer might prefer 64bit version.
    Battery is a larger one and seems to hold charge well, I'm no expert but if there's some test you want me to do just ask.
    The PSU is a 3rd party, but I've had this laptop for years without any issues permanently plugged in.

    It's 'well used and obviously a little worn on the pad and some scratches (see pics). The left button in particular doesn't 'click' if you press at the most worn part but works fine. A weird issue is that the brightness can't be controlled with the fn buttons but completely controllable via Windows so a non issue. There's a dead pixel near the bottom middle.

    I've uploaded some pics, could include a spare laptop bag if you're interested.

    It does click just not at the most worn part (works as you'd expect just no clicking mech), personally I think you'd be hard find to get a better laptop for your money but it's your call - will stick it on eBay at the weekend.

    I've got an old Sony Vaio. If you're interested it's the AW21ZB if I remember right. Have the original box and instructions. It needs the HDD wiping and windows reinstalling as it's pretty well out of space on the C drive, but otherwise very reliable and works fine.
    I'd sell for £50 but would have to be plus shipping as it's an 18.4" screen and not light. Also have the specific Sony laptop bag for it too if you want that

    Hi,

    Sound good but it depends how much you can post shipped as it is quite large?
    What is the general condition like?

    thanks.

    I'll get you some pictures later. If you want the laptop bag too, I imagine shipping will be about £15-20 at a guess. Without I'm not sure but will get you a quote

    Hiya whats the weight of the laptop. Would a 10 year old be able to move it ok?
    Some large laptops are light some heavy so it depends on if this is a lighter one tbh.

    It weighs 4kg according to the specs, so they should be fine. It had a full HD screen, blu-ray drive and a small SSD for windows and a 500GB hdd for the other bits. The sad needs reformatting and Windows putting back on it, as I'm sure there's some stuff on it slowing it down a bit. Also has a full keyboard with number pad, fingerprint password login and other bits

    Hi

    At 4kg I think its a little on the heavy side i'm afraid.
    Its a great laptop by the sounds of it and should sell if you put it up
    for sale in its own thread.

    Sorry,
