    Hi,

    After a cheap laptop for my father in law if someone wants to sell. His got stolen last week and it’s a bit of a mess for him.

    needs it to print labels for a business he is trying to start and general word/office, internet and social media (advertising) use

    So don’t need it to be heavy spec as long as reasonably newish to last him some time as he tries to recover money.

    Budget is approx £100 +- so happy to take the best I can get.

    I can pick up in London or Watford surrounding areas if needed.

    Location: Watford

    Hi dwpman, thanks for the quick response. Think he is looking for a bigger screen – 15″ or thereabouts but will run this by him.

    Hi krooner, thanks for your message. I think the price for him is a bit too high given the age, spec and need to buy charger. Could you do it for lower, appreciate if you can’t.

    Krooner, would you be able to give more info on condition and specs on the HP TPN-C130 you posted elsewhere?

    Would you be willing to negotiate a little in that one for a quick sale? Say £125 posted if all checks out?

    As stated on the other thread specs are;

    15″ Screen
    2.5GHz AMD A6-9220 CPU
    Radeon R4 Graphics
    4GB RAM
    256GB SSD
    Windwos 10 Home

    However price on it is firm, as I’m actually selling for a friend. He wanted me to put it up on eBay on the next £1 deal thing. It’s in excellent condition, he’s only had it for about a year. Got a ProBook given from work so he’s not using it.

    RE the L420: I think it’s cheap at the £80. still decently spec’d and chargers can be had on eBay for about £6.

    Thanks Krooner. How old is the L420 and is it fairly smooth (ie not too laggy) as that would probably work?

    It’s not really laggy at all I wouldn’t have said, I was using it with an SSD in until mid August and it was nice. Obviously it could do with a bit more RAM if you were going to be using it longer term,but for his needs it should do the job.

    I’m not 100% on it’s age but the latest Thinkpads are 80 series, so it’s got to be five or six.

    Ok thanks. Just realised it’s 14″ so might be a bit too small. I’ll ask about the HP but think it may just be out of budget for him. Let me know if your friend can do anything at all on price and I can get the deal done asap.

    We would drop it to £140 to be rid, but it’s the £1 FVF this weekend and I’m confident we will get the £150 for it TBH.

    I could potentially do that – did he buy it new and still in warranty (ie can provide receipt)?

    He reckons he bought it last Summer so I’d assume it’s out of the years warranty. He says he’ll check his Currys/PC World history. (EDIT – June 2018)

    He did buy it new yes, £300 with a 500gb HDD & 4GB ram, so he’s dropped the SSD and RAM in himself.
