The Do's and Don'ts of Buying a Laptop on EBay

The Do's and Don'ts of Buying a Laptop on EBay



One of the good things about the recession is that the country becomes somewhat of a buyer's market. The phrase "finders keepers, losers weepers" may come immediately to mind. But the ugly truth about any recession is that people will not hesitate to part with "unnecessary" household goods when attempting to raise cash for basic survival. As a result, sites like Craigslist, eBay, and others become flooded with sales on electronics, laptops in particular. I have made laptop computer purchases on eBay and have had some interesting experiences. If you've found that you're in the market for a new or refurbished laptop, take a quick look at some helpful Do's and Don'ts.

DO ...Understand Your Computing Needs
The first thing you must do is understand your computing needs. For example, if you need equipment for telecommuting purposes, you will have to know what kind of specifications you'll need to successfully do your job. If you are searching for programming laptops, you should choose laptops with powerful processor. In general, one should recognize how he/she plans on using the piece of equipment. Do you need something exceptionally fast, or with lots of memory? These may seem like simple questions. But for an inexperienced shopper, there are many important details that could be missed.

DO ...Comparison Shop on AND off the eBay web site
One thing I learned from making laptop purchases is that comparison shopping is key. I would suggest that for every "great deal" you find on eBay, check the same make and model on other sites like Amazon.com, Nextag.com, and even Overstock.com. This will give you a good idea of whether the item's current bids are within reason. Use eBay's advanced search features to make sure you are capturing all the products that you're looking for. For instance, typing 'cheap laptops' in the search engine will yield a smaller number of products---giving you a narrower view of auctions. For those who are looking for a specific price range, or type of product, this might be great. But if you are trying to find the best deal on a wide range of laptops, you will want to broaden your search as much as possible.


DO ...Take note of the seller's background
One of the great things about eBay is how sophisticated their seller background feature is. There are a lot of things that you can learn from this important highlight. For instance, if a seller happens to be a "store"---with its own separate web site specifically---it's a good indication that they have a good handle on computer sales. More than likely you will be able to get in touch with someone who can answer technical questions. But the smaller sellers can be just as good as well. Look at the ratings on the kinds of products previously sold. It doesn't really take rocket science to spot the scary looking ads.

DO ...Buy outright if the the laptop bids are very close to "Buy Now" prices
If you are bidding on a laptop, and the reserve seems "too high" or close to the "Buy Now" price, it might be a good idea to skip the auction portion and simply choose the "Buy Now" option. This way you don't end up hassling with other bidders and wasting a lot of time. The important thing to consider when doing so, are things like shipping prices. Depending upon the location you are purchasing from, the shipping price may not justify the actual auction price. These are crucial to consider, because once you enter the auction, you are essentially committing to that product, unless you are outbid.

DO ...Investigate local computer repair shops in your local area
Scan the internet for repair services which offer free diagnostics and troubleshooting. Prior to making any purchases, finding a reputable service to help you with even the basic computing needs would benefit you greatly. I once purchased an HP laptop that seemed to be in great working order. But by the time I'd located a repair shop that would have performed a free check for me, the "warranty" period had expired. The next time I made a purchase, I had the laptop examined quickly; the unit turned out to be faulty, but I was able to get a prompt refund with very little effort.

DON'T...Forget to check general customer reviews on the product you seek
If you are somewhat unfamiliar with the product that you're buying, try googling customer reviews for that specific laptop. This is a great way to find out about flaws and recalls that are product-specific. Some models have popular quirks. This is the kind of information that you'll discover by visiting forums and reading the unbiased opinions of consumers.


DON'T ...Make immediate bids on auctions that have late auction end dates
This is a little trick that I learned along the way. I was once advised to wait until the end of an auction to pull out the winning bid. In many cases other bidders won't have time to intervene, and you could win the auction. I am certain that just about 99% of the population already knows this. But I have noticed that focusing your search on auction "end dates" is a great way to buy products when you need them quickly, and don't have extra time to wait. Additionally, if you bid on the first item that you find, you are more or less "committing" to that product. Should you find a better deal, you may get yourself into a sticky situation.

DON'T ...Ignore Return/Refund stipulations
Just because eBay seems like a "free for all" where it regards selling and buying products, don't assume that each auction will have the same or similar return policies. You must read all information listed in the auction. Do not assume anything about the policies. For example, in returning a laptop to a seller, I noticed that the policy called for a return within 7 days of purchase as opposed to receipt of purchase. Had I not returned the item within the required time frame, I would not have received my refund. In short, it can be very easy to misinterpret the language we see in writing. If you have any questions at all about the stipulations involved in returns/refunds, communicate with the seller first. If you don't receive the kind of response you're looking for (or no response at all)---then that seller might not be the kind you'd want to do business with in the first place.

How To Use Your Laptop in Bed

How To Use Your Laptop in Bed


Today I will show you how to use your laptop in bed.

We all know using a laptop in bed is not a great idea. It's a very dangerous practice because it will damage your laptop. To avoid spoiling your laptop, there are various things you can do when you want to use your laptop in bed.

I'm sure one or two of your friends, colleagues or family members might have told you it's a bad idea to use your laptop on your bed or on the sofa. Simply because a bed and sofa is very soft and blocks the vents that your laptop needs to cool down.

Using your laptop for a long period of time, especially if you're using a resource-intensive application usually get it to warm up a bit. What cools down your laptop is the vents underneath it.

The function of the vent is to draw in cold air and then blow out hot air.

Your bed and sofa or pillows are soft and will simply cushion your notebook and will not allow air to flow freely around your computer's components.

This results in an intense build-up of hot air inside your computer's components. This will likely result in your computer shutting itself down when it gets too hot. However, there are some laptops that will not shut itself down even if it's as hot as a pressing iron. This type of laptop will not complain at all even though it's dying slowly.
One day, you will just notice that your laptop has broken down.

Many laptop technicians right here in Nigeria informed me that inadequate cooling down of laptops is what causes most of the problems that they have to deal with. This is because most Nigerian's cannot afford expensive laptops that can cool itself down effectively. So when they use their affordable or cheap laptop in bed, it breaks down easily because of the the heat build-up.



Let's dive into how to use your laptop in bed. 


You got back from work and you don't want to sit down at your desk again. You wanted to work a little bit more on your computer or just use it for entertainment purpose while in bed. However, you know it's a very bad idea for you to use it in bed and you are frustrated.


You don't need to worry because there are different ways of using your laptop in bed without damaging it. All you need to do is get a computer accessories known as a laptop tray.

There are various laptop bed trays sold on konga and jumia.
So here is the list of the ones that are good and that you can buy.



  • E-table portable laptop stand: This is a Universal E-Table Portable Laptop Stand for Desk / Bed / Office, All In One. It has a cooling function that prevents heat build-up.  This Table allows you to work seamlessly with your Laptop / Net Book whether on the bed, living room, car, flight or anywhere. It can even used as a breakfast table. 

Work on-the-go or while standing up or sitting with the Adjustable Laptop Desk. It has a compact design for a small footprint and wheels for convenient mobility. One side holds a laptop computer while the other is made for a writing pad or other small items. Bumpers at the front and back prevent things from sliding off while working. This mobile laptop cart is height-adjustable, making it comfortable to position just about anywhere. It is also available in a selection of finishes and is suitable for a variety of home, working or teaching environments.
Compact, flat folding table for people living in small, spaces, it is ideal for eating, typing, studying, reading, drawing, and much more, Tabletop slides to the horizontal position for easy, convenient use,Folds into compact footprint and stores under sofa or in closet, Assembles in less than 2 minutes (no tools or fasteners required).


This laptop bed trays will allow your computer to cool down because they have a hard surface and they are adjustable and will make you comfortable while using it in bed.

Now if you do not want to fork out money for an extra computer Accessorie you can go the DIY route.

This is not even going to cost you any amount at all. What you have to do is go into your library or if you don't have a library your bookshelf and look for a book with a hardcover to use as a stand for your computer. If the book is not wide enough you can just place 2 of them beneath laptop. This will prevent the vent from getting blocked. Air will flow freely and you should have no heat build up.

The the only disadvantage you have with this is that it is not adjustable like those I have listed above.

A reader asked me if it's a good idea to use the laptop on her lap since she is a girl.


You would think it's a good idea to use it on the lap since the name of the computer is a laptop (meaning to be placed on the lap).

It's a bad idea for you to use it on your lap especially if you are a man and you do not want to damage your family jewels. This is because using it this way causes your scrotal temperature to rise. This can lead to infertility.

Your computer should not be placed directly on your lap get one of the accessories or just go the DIY way and get a book to place between your lap and your computer.

If you are female or male you might damage your skin if you use your laptop consistently on your lap. You might develop skin rash because of the heat. Therefore, it's a good idea to place an insulation on top of your thigh before placing the laptop on it.
