Sony Vaio VGN-CS31S in Spicy Red.

http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/03/electronics/detailpage/100/sony/B002CGSBVA_1.jpg

Sold as spares or repairs.

Known faults:
-At some point liquid has been splashed on the screen so it has 2 visible watermarks, other that that the screen works fine.
-The fan will need to be replaced as it no longer works so the laptop overheats and shuts off if its taxed.

AFAIK everything else works fine, it can be seen working, but as stated, it is sold as seen spares or repairs.

Includes the battery and charger (which are worth a lot more than the asking price alone) and a Genuine Vista Home Premium Product Key.

An OS will not be included on the hard drive which will be wiped clean.

Details/Specs:
http://www.sony.co.uk/product/vn-cs-series/vgn-cs31s-r

70

Is this price Negotiable, and if you are going to format hdd, does it have recovery partion. If not do you have a back up of drvers for it.
I will give it serious consideration if the price is right, its going to cost 70 for new screen.
The link you supplied with tech specs, does it still have all these specs, i.e 320 hdd & 4gb ram.

If the price is Negotiable pm me with the lowest you will take and I will let you know.

Thanks

Hi Willo,

The recovery partition had some files deleted off it so refused to work, I completely wiped the drive to put XP Pro 64 (which it currently has) on it as I much prefer it. It doesnt come with any recovery discs, it didnt when new because it had the partition. I have had XP Pro x64, Vista and 7 x64 on it. XP was a pain because there arent technically drivers for it so some of the custom features didnt work (multimedia buttons, etc) but that was a decent trade for me to get XP running. The drivers for vista and 7 can be found on Sonys website.

Yes it has all the specs listed on the link (apart from the software obviously), its a decent machine.

60 is the lowest I would take, even used they are still fetching 500+, so even with the cost of repairs you would make a profit.

I just dont have the time to do it myself.
