XPS M1710

So as not to hijack another thread, my laptop is up for sale..

Its an XPS M1710 (July 07)

# System: Dell XPS M1710 (Metalic Black color lid)
# Processor: Intel Core 2 T7400 (2.16 GHz)
# Memory: 2GB @ 667MHz - 2 DIMM Slots (2 x 1GB)
# Hard Drive: 150GB capacity at a speed of 7200 RPM
# Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX 512MB DDR memory
# Screen: WUXGA Truelife (1920 x 1200)
# Optical Drive: 8x CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW/+R) with Dual-Layer
# OS: Microsoft XP
# Wireless Card: Intel 3945 (802.11b/g)
# Battery: 9-cell lithium ion recharegable battery
# Ports / Slots: 5-in-1 Memory Card Reader, DVI-D, VGA video output, S-Video, IEEE 1394 (Firewire), 6 USB 2.0, Express Card slot, Modem, Ethernet/LAN, Microphone in, Headphone out, SmartCard Reader

Its still the dogs knackers, cost me 1500 new

There are a couple of superficial marks on the lid, but only visiable when searching under bright light.

Comes with a nice samsonite case and an XPS back pack, perfect for Lan-age..


Review of base spec..

Re: XPS M1710

Since we moved south and had baby, life is much more expensive. I have just got a decent spec desktop free from my sis (courtsy of her work - legit :P) and as I'm not gaming much anymore I can sell and free up some cash.

Re: XPS M1710

Will you post to Nigeria?

Sorry I really shouldn't have posted that.

I just don't get why peeps don't shove it on ebay where the whole country can see it.

Yes I know you have your scammers and ebay and paypal love taking a nice slice of the final fees but for something like this its probably your best bet.

Re: XPS M1710

If you post that abroad m8 do not accept payment by paypal.

Even if you send it recorded you wont be covered by paypal protection.

If you do send it to anyone who pays by paypal make sure they live in the UK and there address is 'confirmed' otherwise you can pretty much kiss goodbye to all your money.

Make sure its sent by a recorded trackable method as well like parcel force.

If you ever do get into a dispute then at least you have a tracking number to prove its been sent and you can see where it is.

Laptops like that are a high target for scammers.

If you have any question then just ask.

Far far from it I'm afraid.

I would refund them and tell them if they still wish to complete the transaction then they need to use another method of payment.

I would make it clear on your auction that if you going to be sending it abroad then only a cheque or a bank transfer will suffice.

I don't really know a lot about postal orders and I have heard a lot of bad things about them as well so safe is definitely the best option with such a high amount of money.

Also never use links in emails or messages to log into ebay or especially paypal.

You get a lot of spoof emails that take you to a link that looks just like your paypal account and shows you have been sent the money yet if you log in from the website then you will find you account has nothing of them.

You also get emails saying you will receive the payment after you have sent the tracking number and unfortunately a lot of people fall for that one.

Theres loads of good info and tips on this forum who deal with ebay all the time.

Even then its not safe im afraid to say.

Paypal will put you into a negative balance and anything else you sell will go towards recooping that balance.

But rather then do that these days they just pass the debt onto a debt collector who will harass you for the outstanding funds leaving you with no laptop and however much it sold for out of pocket.

Do you accept monopoly money?

Also will you be willing to send it to my long lost cousins sister who is getting it for a friend to give to her daughter who doesn't even exist in outer mongolia.

Thanks in advance.

Re: XPS M1710

I forgot to say Vale.

I strongly suggest you block anyone who doesn't have a credit card on file.

With a item of this high value they ain't gonna be using pocket change hanging around in there paypal account.

Makes it a lot safer for you to.

You can do that as well as lots of other options here.
