Don't go by the overpriced items on eBay, though--go by the low priced ones; especially the "Buy It Now" items that only last minutes or hours before someone picks it ...

Another thing to look out for is when a whole bunch of the same type of laptop is listed with a low starting bid. This is a good way to pick up a deal, as there will often be only so many that people want to buy. You can often get something for the minimum bid that way. That's how I picked up two Fujitsu T5010s for $60 each.
Another nice way to save is to research which laptops work with a power adapter you already have. Those T5010s use the same adapter my Motion Computing slates use, as well as my Lenovo laptop.Isaac Kuo, ICQ 29055726 or Yahoo mechdan

I have an extra A/C Adapter that I picked up for my NC8230 with the smaller plug but I currently have nothing to use it on.
I like to "snipe" deals on EvilBay waiting until the last 10 seconds or so to place a bid, I've picked up a couple pretty good deals that way. Got one of my NC6400's for $50 and the other for $55 and I also picked up an NC4400 a couple months ago that was listed at $50 or best offer for $40, it had a power on password that was unknown. I had to pull the entire laptop apart to get to the cmos battery but after I removed it for about a half hour then put everything back together the thing worked like a champ. It came with 2GB of RAM and has a Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz processor. That little 12.1" laptop is really fast since I've installed a 32GB SSD into it.
Yes, there are still deals to be had but they're just not as many as they use to be.No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.
