Hi,

After a cheap laptop for my father in law if someone wants to sell. His got stolen last week and it's a bit of a mess for him.

needs it to print labels for a business he is trying to start and general word/office, internet and social media (advertising) use

So don't need it to be heavy spec as long as reasonably newish to last him some time as he tries to recover money.

Budget is approx £100 +- so happy to take the best I can get.

I can pick up in London or Watford surrounding areas if needed.

Location: Watford

Hi, I have an ASUS T200 TAC 2-in-1 laptop sitting in my cupboard doing nothing. Very good condition, hardly used.

Specs can be seen here: ASUS Transformer Book T200TA | 2-in-1 PCs | ASUS USA

I'd be looking to clear £100 after postage....Let me know if you are interested and I could post more details and some photos.

Hi dwpman, thanks for the quick response. Think he is looking for a bigger screen - 15" or thereabouts but will run this by him.

Hi krooner, thanks for your message. I think the price for him is a bit too high given the age, spec and need to buy charger. Could you do it for lower, appreciate if you can't.

Krooner, would you be able to give more info on condition and specs on the HP TPN-C130 you posted elsewhere?

Would you be willing to negotiate a little in that one for a quick sale? Say £125 posted if all checks out?

As stated on the other thread specs are;

15" Screen
2.5GHz AMD A6-9220 CPU
Radeon R4 Graphics
4GB RAM
256GB SSD
Windwos 10 Home

However price on it is firm, as I'm actually selling for a friend. He wanted me to put it up on eBay on the next £1 deal thing. It's in excellent condition, he's only had it for about a year. Got a ProBook given from work so he's not using it.

RE the L420: I think it's cheap at the £80. still decently spec'd and chargers can be had on eBay for about £6.

Thanks Krooner. How old is the L420 and is it fairly smooth (ie not too laggy) as that would probably work?

It's not really laggy at all I wouldn't have said, I was using it with an SSD in until mid August and it was nice. Obviously it could do with a bit more RAM if you were going to be using it longer term,but for his needs it should do the job.

I'm not 100% on it's age but the latest Thinkpads are 80 series, so it's got to be five or six.

Ok thanks. Just realised it's 14" so might be a bit too small. I'll ask about the HP but think it may just be out of budget for him. Let me know if your friend can do anything at all on price and I can get the deal done asap.

We would drop it to £140 to be rid, but it's the £1 FVF this weekend and I'm confident we will get the £150 for it TBH.

I could potentially do that - did he buy it new and still in warranty (ie can provide receipt)?

He reckons he bought it last Summer so I'd assume it's out of the years warranty. He says he'll check his Currys/PC World history. (EDIT - June 2018)

He did buy it new yes, £300 with a 500gb HDD & 4GB ram, so he's dropped the SSD and RAM in himself.

Hi Krooner, thanks for that. Happy to do the deal at £140 posted and if he can share the receipt or any proof of purchase that would be great (can redact any personal details) as I've got a way of extending that warranty to 2 years.

Thanks.

Do I need to PM you to go forward (sorry first sale)?

Also, does the laptop have a CD drive?

Edit - will need one as software supplier doesn't have any other format. Sorry

Unfortunately no, seems a lot of these thinner laptops are dropping the optical drives.

Before I drop out, do you know a simple way to replicate the CD onto usb?

Not tech savvy, my laptop has a cd drive so could do it that way and use the USB on the laptop

I use free software called Etcher to write .iso files onto USB sticks. Mainly for Windows install discs etc, butit should work for any disc image.

Ok thanks. You've been more than patient so let's get this done. Your advice plus Google has given me a solution.

Let me know what I need to do to get you the money and me the laptop.
