World's most famous broken laptop for sale

No primary category set

Today we bring you the chance to own a piece of eBay history. Back in 2005, Tom Sawyer was sold a broken laptop on eBay. The seller refused to refund him. So Tom created a blog allegedly written by the seller on which he published personal details and photographs he’d managed to recover from the laptop. The story of the laptop appeared in the Daily Mail and ITV News, but now the unlucky buyer says “I have decided to part with it as it’s no use to me anymore and I’d rather have some money instead.” The laptop still doesn’t work.
