Default eBay Laptops

I'm thinking about buying a laptop from that well known auction site and have a few questions.

Has anyone here done it?
What should i look out for (positive/negative)?
Is it a good idea, is there anywhere (UK) to get laptops cheaper?
Is it a better idea to buy now or after the Christmas holidays?
Buy It now or Auction?

And any other information, would also be good.

I'm after something around 500 max, with specs around about the following
2gb RAM
>80gb HDD
Dual Core of some description at at least 1.8ghz
GPU that can play games, probs not Crysis 2 on high spec but certainly things like GW G-mod and the orange box etc
Something that'll last

New laptop:
2.1 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor :: nVidia GT150m :: 15.6" HD LCD :: 4gb RAM :: 320gb HDD

New player: iPhone 4 32gb

For 500 I dont recommend ebay. You should be able to get a new one from some reliable store. Check this thread out, someone had a similar question.
