Isn't this a good thing? user, do you really want to deal with all the malware that a normie can accumulate in 4+ years?

The problem isn't the wipey wipey thing, I'd still format the whole thing clean, it's just that's I've to spend even extra money for an HDD when it should be one piece.

Why would you use ebay if you were trying to get a good deal? 99% of laptops on ebay are sold by resellers who are tying to make a profit. If you want an actually working laptop then look at your local craigslist-like sites. There you'll find actual real people who just want to get rid of their stuff.

That's actually a pretty fucking good price compared to non-tech people trying to sell used laptops, computers or whatever in my country.
but I paid 3 times that price a decade ago!

Ad ogni modo sempre cash da spendere per una macchina che serve per fare 40-enne postaggio su normiebook e occasionalmente scrivere documenti e email.
Tanto vale comprare qualcosa a poco

Why not just wait for a bid to nearly end and place down a low price at the last second? I got a laptop for £5.50 with that tactic.

Ironically the computer that just died was a Lenovo G50-30

It's more a matter that it was 3 yo and 300€ thrown in the garbage

G50-30 and The T4XX are two, very much different leagues...

It is normal, because otherwise you will find a youtube video, where some guy makes a review of a laptop and he finds a folder with porn, chinks porngames...
no battery
That is bad, but if laptop is old - it is ok.
no AC plug, anything, just laptop
That is stolen laptop 100%
has marks / scratches / small dents
Usual stuff
didn't even bother to clean the smegma from the keyboard
That is gross.

I think that the "(IF INCLUDED)" statement bogged him more that the actual hard disk wipe.

Chiedi su Tom's hardware che qua non troverai info utili, eBay.it è diverso dal resto

Folk who buy hardware of dogshit quality are usually clueless. So it's not a surprise when they're cueless about value depreciation of consumer technology.

craigslist and similar sites
"laptop has minor cosmetic details"

Literally everyone and their grandma does that. There are sites dedicated to do this for you that just script a snipe.

someone must be buying them. its usually better to buy new because the prices are almost same for used and new now

Adrian Sanders

but ebay is much better than those. ebay is a real web store unlike those local crap sites where you have to call the seller.

Why are you trying to buy a £50 laptop? Do you hate your mother?
Something that cheap is going to be useless dog shit. Just get her a new Chromebook or something

Got my mother an X230 with i7, 8GB RAM and 120GB SSD for €199 a while back and she loves it.

But I'm not. She complained that the previous micro-netbook was too slow for doing stuff but she was also quite reluctant to spend 300€ over a computer; even more now since in her mind 3 years aren't enough to justify the money.
Even if the entry-level chromebook is just 450€ (which isn't that cheap already) that's already too much.

Grazie anons

Because someone will be dumb enough to buy it. Check locally if you want cheap, it's easier to find someone trying to offload a laptop for some cash that way. Just clean, inspect, and wipe the drive.

A lot of sellers are also businesses that want "their time's worth" when they sell a laptop or tech in general, even if it's shit.
