Quality. So I'm not going to see the money for this sale! And I'm gonna owe ebay like a tenner or so for the sale atleast. And I had to pay another £2 odd to readvertise the laptop again. Pish like. When my astra was for sale I put it on ebay, just so people would be able to check it out - and my god the amount of crappy emails I got about it. "oh I'd love so much your car as wedding gift for my (mother, sister, old gran, next door neighbours pet hamster ) wedding gift. i will ship to (random far away country). and pay you via (random bank / PA will send a cheque / heavy's will come to your door) immediately" nice one like.
hope ebay sorts this out - sent an email to customer services complaining. Anyone else had this bother? Did it get sorted? etc... any info greatly appreciated ( oh and if anyone wants to actually buy the laptop let me know lol )
