Yep - I've seen that trap on a quick wander through Ebay. Lot's of nice
sounding kit but many say that battery life cannot be verified. If buying
second hand and a new battery is needed then, for some of the offers, it
would be cheaper to buy a new machine anyway. Cheapest Dell on their web
site was 430 quid..

Have a look at the weekly magazine "Micro Mart", plenty of 2nd
user/refurbished laptops, from reputable suppliers, however, if buying
2nd hand check on the condition and guarantee on the battery, as it is
quite an expensive item to replace (as you know)
