    Is it safe? Some offers seem to be way to good to be true, like £5.00 for a laptop, yet the seller has 100% positive feedback!

    I only want a cheap one so that I can word process, so a nice old one would do me fine.

    Yeah at the begining its normanlly £1 or £5 but then as more bidders bid on it, you can see it rise to the expected values.

    If they say it works then it works. But don't expect top of the range stuff.

    I bought one over ebay. Brand new for £700 when it should have been about £900. You won't get good stuff really cheap, but there are good bargains to be had. Never buy from america becuase you can almost guarantee you'll get taxed when it comes into UK. I bought an MP3 jukebox for what I thought was a bargain but when they charged me £60 for taxes etc. it brought it up to pretty much it's RRP.
