Tips for buying on ebay:
1. Make sure 100% positive feedback.
2. Go for power seller status.
3. Ebay has buyer protection. Buyer is 'GOD' out there.
4. They're cheap without any surcharges.

Rest is 'use your brain'
PEACE

no way dont buy laptop fron ebay !!!
1) positive feedback doesnt mean all products are good.
2) i dont believe ebay seller at all; they wi send you cheap products
3) it will take you 3-4 hours even to talk with representative of ebay to file your claim !! they dont have phone customer service !!
4) cheap products cost cheap.
5) if you buy from bestbuy or other shop they will provide you serivice (if somthing happened) on ebay where will u call ???
eBay is good for mobile cases and cheap (under 100 dollars) product only.
DONT EVER BUY LAPTOP ON EBAY !!USE BRAIN

facebook bro, then I think you've not used ebay in my opinion or may be you've used it long ago.
Things are different now.
I'm not here to promote or demote any services.
-Positive feedbacks means all products the seller has sold is good.
-Power Seller is what I meant. I don't believe other sellers at all just like you.
-and yea, you can easily get through someone live to talk to. Before that, you need to work out with seller.
Talking to ebay representative is always a last resort.
-Products you buy off ebay do have warranty. You don't go to seller to ask for warranty , it's the manufacturer of the laptop you seek out to.
But if you get the DOA stuff, they do have return policy. Make sure you read all those.
-On top of that, recently ebay is literally treating it's buyer as GOD. Believe me, I'm a seller and I'm so upset how ebay is so harsh on sellers whereas so lenient to buyers. If one buyer makes bad complaint, I may risk losing business with ebay. With this constant fear in sellers mind, they do co-operate with buyer. Believe me, buyer is always on safe side.

The only thing you can't get normally through online purchase is the touch and feel of the product. That's when I visit my local stores like bestbuy asking for specific model, demoing all the features, and if I like it, I buy it from online. Bestbuy, they do charge insanely. Even a simple power adapter for any laptop would cost so much that you can get it on ebay at 1/10 of the price on stores.

I don't write stuffs just like that unless I've experience with it. And, my experience says go for it.
Sorry if you had some unpleasant experience with them. I had once but  I gave it a second try and ever since I'm on it since 5 years.

To original poster of the thread,
here is how I do it: 

compare prices everywhere online.
I've a prime account with Amazon.com and that's where I compare my price. It's one of the best and the largest online retailer in the world today.
Now, ebay is not what it used to be. To much corporate chains are on ebay now-a-days and it's literally another online store rather than auction site. They do have auction feature but it's gradually diminishing out of the view.

So, say, if I've to buy a laptop, first I'd search it on ebay. After I found it, I'll give another search on amazon.com. Then on techbargains.com and tigerdirect.com. Now, I compare all the prices. Then I get the phone number of my local electronic stores off google, call them and ask if it's available, if it's ask how much. Don't even have to go to the store. If they've stuff then I make a trip to store and check all the features. If I like it, I come back home and buy it online. If I don't like it, I look around. Few of the products on ebay, I found it quite pricy than other online stores, blame it on corp chains listing their products out there. But if you know how to dig ebay up, you will always save money out there.

And, always use paypal as payment option as it's the most secure way to do business. If someone asks for wire transfer, then be ready to lose your money or be ready to be the victim of online fraud.

If something happens in eBay what would you do?
Let me answer this one for you.
If something happens in eBay, like if the item doesn't look like the way it was described, you talk to the buyer first. If he do not correspond you, or if they do not want to work with you, you open a case against his/her ass. As soon as you do that eBay holds the money that you paid for that item. Now the money is neither yours nor the sellers. Then eBay investigates. You should receive a phone call about your case from eBay within 24 hours. if the item do not meet your expectation, there's no way that you are loosing your money. eBay is a multi million dollar company and it's not there where it is right now because it's costumes can get ripped off so easily. Your one negative rating can destroy sellers business. Like bitter brother mentioned buyers are god in eBay.  I do both buying and selling in eBay and I have always enjoyed it ( only thing that annoys me is the time it takes my stuff to get delivered when I order something from hongkong).

@pepsi, no worries. I've noticed Sajha.com server has some latency issues which I think is normal given the volume of visitors accessing the page same time.

@tensonbho bro, you got a steal deal. That's awesome. I envy your purchase now. All pre-loaded softwares and with 3 years warranty, 8 gig RAM, core i5 and the seller is with 100% positive feedback, it's nice,  meaning no need to worry as there is 99% chance that he'll maintain that feedback.

Congrats :D

Just kidding with the post above.

If you are in themarket for a laptop, it might behoove you to consider ultrabooks.  Check Amazon and Costco.  They have excellent customer service and easy return policy.  

If all you need to do is surf the web, iPad could be an option.  iTunes has tonnes of free apps that will keep you infotained for good.

Ultrabooks are expensive now and they dont even have CD drives !

sgy, are ppl still buying PC rey..??
lol.. it's gonna be here for next 20 years. What do you think??
Did you buy on the propaganda spread by these tablet telemarketers.?
lemme tell you something, PC is becoming integral part of our day to day life.  It's not going out anytime soon.
If you thought HP stopped the laptop business model, well then the executive chairman who made that decision is already fired and guess what?, HP is back and yeah it sells PC. 
40 years ago we had mainframes, 40 years later it's still with us sitting on our desktop and at least 20 more years, it's not going anywhere.
Tablets are sidekicks to PC we have today. It's like on-the-go stuff to check some mails,social networks and games other than that it's not as perfect as PC. A recent survey showed aproximately more than 70% ppl use tablet for gaming and for less productive works.
And, ultrabooks are new kids on the block not sure if it's gonna stay or go.
These so called ultrabooks are damn expensive at the moment and the only good thing about them is low power consumption , hence more battery power. Well, that's what netbooks said but look at it, what happened, netbooks are flawed and it flopped.

I would still wait for a year before I even think of trying ultrabooks. I already have a rock solid system build, don't need to look around for couple of more years :D
