If this were me I would want to know why a laptop running XP doesn't have the original XP installation CD with it. I know that Dell, as with other PC suppliers, do not supply the CD with the package, but I would not expect to sell a computer on eBay or elsewhere without getting that disk from Dell first to include with the sale of the computer.
I would ask the seller questions, and scrutinize their reply for anything that sounds uncomfortable. eg, where is all the paper work for the Dell? Is there a CD? If not, why not? What happens if the Operating System crashes, what fall-back do you have with the seller?
If you purchase that laptop and it crashes when you use it, where are you then?
Just my own reservations.
