    one of my friends is going to sell me a laptop for 500
    it is a Toshiba a215 and she installed Microsoft office 2007 on it and it is only 1 week old
    the reason she is selling is because she wanted a different model and her parents got her this one
    just tell me if you think this is a good deal or not
    comes with everything that came in the box [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Do you get the Office '07 packaging and license?

    If so, then yes, its quite the good deal (as that alone will fetch 100USD+).

    He should've sold it for $600 + $100 for Office.
    $200 would make building a new PC a lot easier wouldn't it?
