Dundee, Scotland

hello. i was getting a bit fed up posting on here using my cell phone. a good cell phone but quite awkward to use on mylot. so yesterday we went into the city and i parked the bike outside cash generators. think i got lucky. got this touch screen 11.6 inch windows 8.1 4gb ram 500gb hdd hp pavilion netbook for £40. my gain is obviously someone elses misfortune. how much do you think they paid the person who sold it to them. its about 4 years old. its clean. and cost about £350 when new. this is my first post with it and i see the advantages of a thing like this to post on here already.

I don't possess a smartphone, but wouldn't fancy using one for here. Glad you got a bargain.

i suppose it is a good deal. but the person who took it in and sold it to them got right royally ripped off.

@infatuatedbby i reckon they gave him £10. thats a bit sad which ever way you look at it. i was curious as to how much it is worth so i checked ebay and i saw 3 of exactly the same machine all in excess of £125

sounds like a bargain I used a netbook for years before I got this full size one for my birthday in september...I like it as it has a dvd drive which the netbook didn't.

hi mike. i think it is a bargain. a bit of cosmetic imperfection but nothing major. i dont think i will worry about it not having a dvd drive thingy as i only own one dvd. south park bigger longer uncut. our bedroom telly has a dvd thingy built in so i can watch my dvd on it.

Wow, that is actually pretty good for a laptop if it is just for simple use! I think you got very lucky!

hi. it seems to multi task really well. why it has 4gb ram beats me, cash generators obviously made an error when they priced it up. the sales ticket never mentioned it is touchscreen. i think that i got lucky right enough
