I'd rather pay another $100 and get a laptop from a brick and mortar here in the USA with more RAM and a 2nd Gen i3 processor....

I agree but he has a 300.00 price limit.

Shit probably "fell off the back of a truck."

I'm not sure I'd pull the trigger on that laptop.

absolutely not - it's of Lenovo's retail line. I'd go w/ this one and request free freight as your 'best offer'

These are solid and they last for freaking ever.

The p8400 processor is phenomenal BTW, another reason to go w/ the r500

The HDD situation may cause conflicting interests - but - it's not a huge deal - can add later.

I would personally never buy a laptop off ebay, but that could just be me

it's hard to argue w/ new vs used - unless we're talking the HUGE processor difference.

True I wouldn't make a purchase over a 100 dollars on ebay.

That's funny - I've built a successful business doing it.

It's a personal thing with me, I would much rather do it the old fashioned way. Shopping is half the fun for me, as long as it's something i really want.
