I'm not altogether sure you are being serious Jezza !.....

.......though this is not really the place to ask about computer hardware, all I can say is that , IF it works and you are ONLY going to use it for internet browsing and word processing then I shan't think you'll have any problems as long as that is all that you want to do with it...will you be downloading big files, music, films ?

Also, where are YOU located ?...as far as guarantee is concerned I would advise caution, tread very carefully, it all depends on the seller...what is their feedback rating ?..is warranty mentioned ?....and language ?....I presume it should be possible to change the language...

I know..why don't you paste the link to the item here so that we all can see it !!..I promise we wont bid on it.

personally though, I wouldn't buy a computer off Ebay, especially if it's located in another country !

Ebay! are you mad. as neil says use caution. Personally i wouldn't buy anything off Ebay. I'm not saying there's nothing worth buying or that every seller is dodgy.
BUT YOU REALLY NEED TO BE CAREFUL BUYING THINGS ONLINE. and Ebay is one of them places where the fraudsters and crooks like to do there business.

Buying a PC from eBay is almost as stupid as calling yourself Doctor Beaver!
