    A friend of mine has a laptop and he's going to sell on Craigslist for 350. However, since I am his friend, he's willing to sell it to me for 250. It's a Toshiba Satellite C655 core i3. Is it worth it? I checked it out and there's nothing wrong with it. Is it a good deal?

    Core i3
    4GB RAM
    500GB HDD

    More details needed, for example

    Which i3 model?
    Graphics?
    Size of laptop
    Battery life, whether its still good or halfway dead
    General condition of laptop (well taken care of, or dragged to hell and back)

    etc

    Shucks, I do not have any of that information. Except that it is in excellent condition. If I remember correctly, the laptop uses an Intel Core i3 i3-380M.

    I use an i3-370m in my laptop daily, I still find it to be a perfectly suitable laptop CPU, and with an SSD in my laptop, I still get around 5hrs of battery life.

    I have a friend of mine which has a pention celeron dual-core mobile and it runs perfectly.
    The core i3 is going to be great and he got his own laptop for more than 250 so I would have bought it if i really needed a laptop

    Probably for that amount of $$$ is not a bad deal. I have a Toshiba Satellite P305d-s8818 laptop I'm selling for $300 but want something a little higher up. Still in great shape. Also depends on what you want to do with it to.
