What about buying a used laptop at Ambassador Mall? A couple of stores there used to have what looked like some good deals.

A few years ago, some up-and-coming local businessmen used to trade-in their laptops like teenagers now change hand phones. Nothing was wrong with most of those laptops, the previous owner just wanted the latest or something more flash.

Also, these used laptops usually come with a 30-day(or more)store guarantee. I reckon if a moving part is on its last legs, it should stop rotating before a month is up. So it's to the store's benefit to make sure the used 'puter it sells you lasts for a while before needing repairs.

I think carefully buying a used laptop is like buying a used car: most of the depreciation has already been taken if you're the number two, or later, buyer. What do you think?

Also, are there other locations in town that have decent selections of used laptops?

buying a laptop is always a bad investment in terms of money. initial cost is high, they can't be upgraded, and depreciation is massive (write it off after 3 years).

so, unless you really actually truly need a portable machine, steer clear of them!

Not sure I agree wholeheartedly with all of that - so long as you choose a decent processor in the first place then pretty much everything else is upgradeable - do you really want to be taking PC cases apart every 10 minutes ( unless of course you dropped 500 Rups in there and need it for the fiskal)?

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop , been well and truly used but cared for and has been brilliant value for money , has made me lots of money , and I am actively looking for another one .

It really depends on if you need a computer to actually work on or if you need one to lug about to various fashionable places to show how important you are .

Remember when you are trading the old one in to destroy the hard drive.

I'm sure the directory marked "Curly Wurlies" is the least offensive on your C Drive!
