Second-hand laptop - on-line dealers

  1. As I am about to enter the minefield of buying a second-hand laptop,
    any suggestions as to trustworthy on-line dealers would be welcome.

    There is always ebay, some people swear by it, others will warn you away
    when it comes to laptops. I recently was looking to pick up a used Thinkpad
    there, but at the ending of each auction, the prices jumped dramatically for
    something that was almost 4 years old. Don't forget to include an
    astronomical shipping charge <BG>

    Keep in mind that new laptop prices are supposedly dropping, but used
    sources don't always seem to follow the trend. Here are just a few starters,
    there are many more if you keep searching. I prefer IBM as there is a fairly
    large amount of support available still for older models at their website.




    Bill there may have some used ones, got mine there and am very happy.
