$100 for a Windows 7 PC isn't that good, most are probably worth more on eBay, and on top of that, the prices for the windows 10 PC's you get a trade in credit for are overpriced so staples definitely comes out well ahead on this deal. Slickdeals likes actual deals where prices are cheap. like that PC that becomes $400? It should be $250-300 without a trade in, it's a terrible price.

Yes, except not everyone sells on eBay.
You've got your points, but if one has an older laptop (Vista, XP), they may be able to get credit by installing Win7 and trading it in.

This post was simply informative about the trade-in.
I just added some possible laptop deals to it.

wouldn't a Windows 7 license to install on an XP or Vista machine cost $100 or close to it? for the few hours it would take to install I'd call that a wash at best for most people unless you're advocating piracy and illegal activity to get a deal on here which I can't imagine to be the case.

I have a Fujitsu Stylistic tablet that runs on a C2D with DDR2 and just happens to be 12.1in, so this actually could be a useful way to get rid of this for a sale on a Surface device...

Yeah, pretty sure that eBay link you're showing there is to a pirated or illegal copy of the software being hocked on eBay, not a valid license.

Besides that the prices after trade in for these laptops are terrible even without trade-in on the low end PC's and lukewarm at best for the higher end ones.

I have an HP laptop from 2010 that is slow and heavy just sitting there. I doubt I could get 100 for it let alone 200.

What do you mean?
These aren't valid licenses that come with desktops w/ the sticker?
or is it illegal to sell/reuse them? (really asking you this because I have a bunch of stickers from old PC's)

Does it meet these requirements?
Credit you get also depends on what you purchase.
If you can get $100, you can get $200, just need to buy more expensive laptop or desktop

-Powers on
-Win 7 or higher OS
-No major cosmetic defects
-12in screen or larger
-working battery
-original power cord

I believe it's against Microsoft's terms of service and they can terminate those licenses if they detect them put on a whole different machine. OEM licenses on old laptops are tied to and meant only for that laptop technically. You can probably get away with installing and booting with one of those keys though.

Never sell your laptop to any one (ebay/Staples) without swapping the hard drive. Put a new HD in and physically destroy the old one.

The consumer/B2B tools that are out there to recover data from used/old hard drives is down right scary.

The only true way to get rid of data is to melt the platters and or etch the surfaces with a concentrated acid.

Selling on ebay - NO

Exchanging with Staples - HELL NO!!!!
