^ Is this a good spec laptop? It's on for £200? is it worth £200 second hand?

The Specs looks good to me...
But i'm not fond of the Second Hand part...

I normaly wouldn't buy a second hand "thing" (laptop, ps3, whatever) since you never know what they've done with it.. It may look as pretty as if you've bought it new, and for that price: I would say NO...

But that's my opinion...

Specs - good.
Worth or not depends on:

the person which sells
the age of the device
the condition of the device

As I can't judge those online, I can't say about second hand buying...
If it was new, I'd say it's good :)

Pretty nice for the price But is it possible to get new?

I really dont like the idea of buying a computer second hand. If you do, make sure you give it a completely clean reinstallation.

sounds nice to me. Not weak for sure

Specs are good.

No mention about the battery: What duration, and how the previous person used it?

If the battery is in bad working order that could turn really annoying.
