pleased with my purchase

I lost the first eBay auction where I tried to win my netbook of choice. But tonight I won the same model from a different auction. This one is blue rather than black:

I paid more than I probably should for a used netbook. But I saved this much:

I paid $39 less than it cost new
I saved $50 because it was upgraded to 2MB of RAM and if I purchased it new it only comes with 1MB and I would have had to purchase more RAM
I saved $30 in sales tax because I purchased it out of state

Not only did I save $119, but I purchased it from the only seller on eBay (and there are quite a few of them selling this model) that actually offers you 7 days to return it to get your money back. So if it arrives and doesn't work for some reason, I just have to pay shipping and then I get a refund.

Now I just need to purchase a copy of MS Office and I'm good to go.


Glad it worked out for you.

PS I'm *assuming* you mean 2 GB of RAM instead of 2 MB. 8-)
Uh-oh, I think I got ripped off. The listing says RAM: 2000 MB

I guess I thought that was 2GB and just paid $50 too much for my laptop!!!
2000 MB *is* 2 Gigs, so you didn't get ripped off

You did alright... 8-)
In your post you were saying *2* MB,
not 2000... that's why I made the distinction
between MB and GB

Sorry for any confusion I caused.
When it comes to numbers and computers I'm easy to confuse. :)
