If you paid via Paypal the magic number is 45 days. The buyer has 45 days to the minute to file a claim with Paypal for a refund. More than likely Paypal will make him ship it back and process a refund.
If he ships it back via USPS, open it at the post office, and if anything is off, file a claim of postal fraud.

First of all, never sell used electronics over the internet.
Secondly, do it on craigslist and meet up the person far from your local area and use a prepaid phone. --- http://i.imgur.com/r9pppzV.jpg http://i.imgur.com/BcGVG.gif

I'd give him the finger and tell him to "deal with it"
Not a good idea. If the guy gives him bad feedback, and someone questions it, he can show them the email of him explaining the situation to the person. If that email says "**** off, deal with it.", then the feedback is justified.
Also if the guy takes him to small claims or something, he can show the emails explaining the situation, and not an email saying "deal with it" as well.
I wouldn't even care about the feedback. I just wouldn't sell on ebay anymore. Just use CL or amazon. ebay is a ripoff anyway when you're selling --- See The Game Collection http://www.gamespot.com/users/nights_team2k7/games_table?mode=own

eBay works fine... its Paypal thats an issue because they always side with the buyers (aka scammers). --- http://i.imgur.com/r9pppzV.jpg http://i.imgur.com/BcGVG.gif

You're screwed OP, eBay always sides with the buyer.
Don't be surprised if you have to give him a full refund AND he gets to keep the laptop, because that's just how they screw you.
