That ebay laptop has similar specs to the dells that i have. A bloke up here seems to access old models from his work, cleans them up and sells them for about that price. 8gb ram and decent SSD mean you also have a shot at running processing software on it if you like. i run pixinsight on mine, and while it can be slow to do some things, it gets it done and is reliable. Good to keep electro gadgetry going as long as possible, too... e-waste is pretty bad. Bought my daughter a $500 new laptop for school and my gosh its slow... soooo slow with windows 10. She is going to linux, just so its useable.
