I bought this laptop for £1500 4 years ago

Nice piece of irrelevant information there. Unless you’re somehow selling it 4 years ago?

For some reason it started to get hot when charging but still worked ok

Oh that’s perfectly normal for a Vaio battery. That’s just your standard Sony warning that you’re about to star in a remake of “Backdraft”.

it has not had a drink or anything spilt on it.

Why would you say such a thing? That now makes me wonder what kind of fluids have narrowly missed hitting it.
And if you’re listing things that have never happened to it, I notice you omitted to say:
It’s never had a car reverse over it,
It’s never plummeted to the ground from high Earth orbit and
It’s never overthrown a despotic regime in a third world country.
So, is there anything else we should know about this?

    Wow, he paid £1500 for a 1.1 Ghz Intel Mobile CPU with 512 MB RAM 4 years ago!
    Even for Sony, that’s not good bang per buck.
    Even for a Sony laptop from 8 years ago that’s not good bang per buck.
    Amused by the advert for Laser Eye Surgery at the bottom of the eBay page. Very apt (as in, if you are considering this, you might need it).

    I like how he claims he’s listing it as FAULTY and yet he’s chosen ‘used’ as the item condition instead of ‘For parts or not working’ which, in his defence, I’ve never seen before on eBay until today while looking for something to post so there’s a chance it may have been added after his auction went up. I’ve found that something so I’ll post it in a jiffy.

    *Has never walked, never run, is a fighter, and has “The Touch”.
