Cousin is offering to sell me his old Alienware M11xR3 (11 inch) for $400.

Thoughts?

He also replaced the HDD with a 128 GB SSD. Currently i'm using a super old Dell Vostro with a Core 2 Duo that has a 45 minute battery life.

He said he was going to try to ebay or craigslist it for $700.

Obviously at 11 inches i'm not going to be using it for hardcore gaming, i already have a desktop that fits my needs, but it would be nice to have the option to do a bit of light gaming on a laptop if i so desire.

Apparently he upgraded the RAM to 8 gigs too. It's the i7 model.

Are you kidding? $400 right now would get you a low-end i5 laptop at best with Intel integrated graphics, and he'll be getting a gaming laptop with a halfway decent dedicated GPU for $400, sounds like a pretty damn good deal to me. Also, I don't think he would such a d*** as to cheat his cousin out of $50.

it's not cheating, it's called bargaining.

I make my cousins bleed. Actually, I make all my family members bleed. The sad part is when I accidentally bleed them too much because I get greedy and careless, and then they stop pumping blood forever. It's sad, because I really do love my blood. Blood from outside my family just isn't the same.

Yeah, I'll admit it - that was a Darwin moment on my part.
