Is it okay to buy a laptop that was one year old and a half already, slightly used with very good specs worth 30k. Its brand is hp pavillion and was bought abroad. Do you think its mother board wont die. How long does a laptop can be used. How many years can it take long? Someone is selling it online and I'm thinking if it worthy to buy even if its 1 yr and half already.

HP has a really bad image for me. I got so many feedbacks on HP laptops that are returned for warranty purposes even in the first few months (2-3months) which is not a good sign of a laptop. Lke akuseru said, motherboard will be an issue and very often, screen will malfunction eventually so it would be a big no for this :D

MOst laptop should be able to last at least 3 years if it's being taken care of and in good condition.. BUt this has been used for about 1.5 years now, and the price is so high.. I will rather u be spending money on a new laptop instead, even though specs etc might not be as good, but u can always be upgrading it on your own, and make it a super com.. haha

I would say no do not buy it because y uncle brought on when it first came out and in about a year the laptop crashed on him nd he lost a lot of important data he hads to get a new mother board but he latter had problems with that and he brought a new computer from dell
