Sony VAIO VGN-FS550 *LAPTOP-for parts/repair**

The Sony VAIO is a pretty solid machine overall, but like all commodity electronics, it's subject to wear and tear and breaking.  So, it makes sense that eBay is a spot for people to hawk their no-longer functional laptops for parts in order to cut their losses. 

This thing is pretty beat up as it is, but obviously, the guy can't sell it for full price.  Interestingly enough, though, is that he's up to 11 bids, which will definitely go up as the auction reaches deadline.  Given that any piece of electronics will be worth more in parts than fully assembled, getting them for cheap is always a good thing.

I just wonder why the seller felt the need to copy and paste the full description from the Sony website, though.  It's not like the buyers are going to care about features.  They just want to make sure that it's the correct model number.
