  • Laptop for sale

    Hi Again,
    I have just purchased a new laptop and upgraded to Adobe CS4. I thought there might be one or two members who would be interested my old one. It is around four years old now and has marks on the body to prove it. The screen is good, though a little darker than newer machines. Size of screen is 14.1in, I have upped the memory to 3 gb and replaced the hard drive two months ago with a new 190gb hard drive.
    Internet connection is via a wireless usb dongle (supplied and installed). It is running Windows 7 and works perfectly. All disc's for the laptop will be included.
    Software programmes installed (no disc's) are: Microsoft office 2007, Adobe Photoshop CS2, AdobeBridge, Adobe ImageReady 2 and Adobe Lightroom 2 with two packs of OnOne software filters/plugins for LightRoom. I will also include plenty of Photoshop tutorials if required.
    Open to offers.

    PM me if interested.

    Re: Laptop for sale

    Is there nobody who wants a cheap laptop with Photoshop loaded ???. Is everyone here using high end gear and CS5 extended or are you all Mac users. I thought someone would have shown some interest. It can be connected to you'r top of the range screen so it is worth something just for the programmes loaded on it. I'm not desperate to get rid of it but it would be more than adequate to someone who wants to use the full version of Photoshop. If there is no interest this week then I'll clean it again and sell on ebay. I look forward to being flooded with PMs this time round LOL.

      Computers and laptops are hard to make offers on, especially older ones like yours. If you put a price then you may get some interest.

                Acctually not sure if it is software theft. If the OP has got a valid licence and the software is legit, it is legally licenced to the owner of the particular machine and is therefore tranferrable. Unless the software is hookey, in which case the OP can still sell the laptop as is.
                But i would recommend the OP run data shredder on the free disk space so no one can recover his personal data.

                  There was only ONE slightly critical comment, from J.Baker, and even that was helpful. Everything else has simply been requesting a guide price or offering sensible suggestions.
                  Overreaction occurred.

                  None of this would've happened had the OP posted a suggested price in his offer. Simple.

                    The most important thing when selling on hardware with licensed software installed is to supply the licence/activation codes. If you don't supply these you might as well remove the software. Either you are passing the licence on to the new owner of your hardware or you aren't. If you aren't, what is the point of including the software in the first place unless you are encouranging un-licensed use, which is illegal.

                      I have to say I am amazed and frankly disgusted by some of the comments posted in this forum relating to members attempting to sell used items. Ok, I can understand the feeling that nobody wants the forum to be used as a 2nd hand marketplace and the sale of a laptop could be considered off topic for a photography forum. However, the legalities of selling a used laptop rightly or otherwise are surely a matter between the seller and prospective purchaser and nobody else's business but theirs. Literally thousands of laptops and pcs loaded with software are sold every day via Ebay and other used outlets without anyone being pounced upon by the authorities.

                      I have to say that it is threads like these that make the forum sometimes appear to give the impression that it is a select "Gentlemans Club" with none but the most afflulent members of society being welcome.

                      Fortunately from all my detailed readings and the responses to my past submissions I know this isn't true, however, to the casual visitor reading posts such as these the truth may not be so evident and would have a negative effect on any "ordinary" person considering joining and becoming a valued contributor.

                      Sorry if this offends anyone but I do believe in stating my opinions when I see something that really gets my hackles up. If the Mods wish to remove this post then so be it.

                      Regards,
                      John
                      As I hope you have noticed, we only very rarely remove posts. This is why I think we all agree that the e-group is a very contented and peaceful place.

                      Others here have covered the ins-and-outs of this thread adequately. You are entitled to your opinion, I'm not offended, but I think you have already realised that most here don't entirely follow that opinion. Nothing wrong in that, we all have different opinions. Sometimes we just have to agree to disagree and move on.

                            Laptops seem to be more complicated to sell with unseen legalities tied to them.

You did ask for interested persons to PM you and surely, when and if contacted, that was the time to go into the details of the laptop and legalities of any software included, if indeed the prospective purchaser had any concerns.

                              For all anyone knew from your posts you may have been willing to include all the necessary licence keys etc. As I have stated before regarding similar situations with items for sale in the forum, we all all reputed to be intelligent adults and therefore should be able to make our own minds up regarding the legalities or authenticity of any potential purchases.
