Post Worth $200?

Hey guys, I just spotted a deal on a local used site, its an Acer 5602WLMi for $200.
No word on the condition as of yet, but it was used as a spare laptop (or so they say). So its safe to assume good to very good condition.
The only thing that is wrong is its missing its AC adapter. But I can ebay one for under $30.

Deal or no Deal?:help:
TIA!

Now that you mention it, it does look kind of strange...
I think I'll let this pass by, I dont really want the moral dilemma of having a possible stolen item...

Good plan. There's no way a $1000 notebook sells for $200 unless it's stolen or good only for some parts. There are PIII notebooks that sell for almost that much - lol
