Your best bet is Ebay. Don't get carried away, though - watch a few
auctions before you bid!

Don't waste your money. Spend 450 and get a brand new Acer.

Scenario - buy a 2nd hand laptop. It needs a repair, 3 months down the line.
Repair costs 100. Maybe you need the manual or a new hard drive. Add that
to the cost. Then factor in you'll only ever get old laptop
performance/reliability out of it.

Laptops are disposable items. Buy it this year and flog it next year or the
year after. If it's over 5 years old, it's landfill.
