How broken? To me, $140 is alot for a broken netbook. But if it's well-equipped and the fix is cheap, then sure.

Depends of course how much, (if anything), it cost you to fix it, doesn't it? and as Reflex said, the spec.

These models were most recently going for about $190 new, but of course you can't get them that way anymore. If you can fix it up for less than $50, then sure, you have something nice.

Yah the guy filled the hdd up so he got a bsod. All i had to do was reinstall the os. So it cost me nothing. I payed a bit more for it because he said he thought it was 16gbs. Well it wasnt. So he said he would refund me the amount i payed extra. I am not trying to rip him off, so i would like to know the price difference between the 16gb and the 8gb models. From there i should be able to come up with a fair refund. Does anyone know what the price difference was between the two models?

Thanks for your help.
