    If it is new and sealed, it will come with an OS.

    I think you should have asked this of the seller before buying. It would seem odd that they would remove the OS Disks, but It could happen I guess.

    Id ask them (remembering if it said that and its true they would not have to refund you if they didnt want to)

    Oops, missed that.:eek: Yeah, I think you're ok. Apparently they detailed the specifics in the listing text, but failed to specify the operating system while setting up the listing. I think you have nothing to worry about.

    No operating system included would be my first clue that the laptop might be stolen. I have seen it before.

    I just looked at the listing again. The seller has over 1,400 feedbacks with a 99.8% positive. Yeah, no worries.

    Yep using it, and was exactly like it said in the description, Brand new and sealed, never opened, its brilliant i love it, just annoyed at a few things like not getting sound when playing avi's, cant fix it lol, as for the Operating System not included thing, well that was aload of rubish, i think thats why no one had it before me.

    Umm, if it was "exactly like it said" then there would have been no operating system. Guess the seller isn't the only one who doesn't always type what they mean. ;)
