    laptop from ebay

    I'm looking to get a laptop when i upgrade my setup instead of getting a new desktop. I know ebay ha s a lot of crappy sellers that sell POS laptops. So I'm wondering if anyone has gotten a laptop from ebay and that can remember the seller's ID that they got it from.

    I'm looking to get anything around 800 off ebay for a nice laptop.

    why buy used?

    2.6ghz Toshiba $850

    but, that is with $200 in mail-in rebates

    I LOVE toshibas, they dont break!

    Dell and gateway laptops are horrible--I dont know anyone personally who has had a dell or gateway laptop that hasn't been repaired within 1 year of purchase

    ya i refuse to buy anything from bestbuy.. but my needs for a new laptop put them well over 1300 Its gonna be a coding machine and such so a celeron isn't gonna cut it. I might actually just give in and spend some cash anyway

    a cele 2.x ghz is more than enough for a coding box.... just cram 512 or 1g ram in it and you are money

    i believe compusa has a similar toshiba deal this week.

    edit: http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...07561&pfp=cat1 $950-150 rebate w/ $0.01 2 day shipping. (order fedex ground, it's upped to 2-day free of charge, for laptops anyway)

    One year one month... LCD screen completely flipped out. Though, the warranty service is excellent if you have it.

    I've been eyeing this one:

    AMD 64 Mobile w/ ATI 9600
    It would make a nice DTR, but not the most portable.
