Craiglist Lapstops loaded with Win7x64 Ultimate, Office 2010 Pro

Craigslist is littered with older laptops being sold with Win7x64 and Office 2010 Pro.

These sellers claim the License is genuine and activated. How can it be possible to sell a laptop with Win7 and Office 2010 Pro for $200-$400.

If you ask about media or a key, you don't get it so how is it legal to have it on these computers being sold?

This is the craiglist post.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

If something sounds too good to be true, it is. If a seller can't or won't produce the keys, or the seller can't or won't produce the installation media, steer clear.

Windows 7 Home Pro SP1 64bit

Below is a Craigslist ad in my area. I e-mailed the seller and he said the OS and word install disks/keys are included and both have been activated !!! What y'all think ?

"This is an awesome large, bright, and easy on the eyes laptop computer. If you are looking to replace your desktop...well look no more. This boasts dual core (2 x 1.83GHz ) processors and comes with a whopping 320GB WD hard drive @ 7200 RPM, running Windows 7 Home Premium, 2GB of memory, SD Card Reader, DVD burner/CD burner, new extended life battery, new A/C charger, and Microsoft Word 2010 Professional ($199.). Malware Bytes and Microsoft Security Essentials are installed and guard against malware. All Microsoft updates are installed, just plug it in and put your wireless key in and you are surfing ! This is the nicest wireless laptop you could ask for. $280 is the bottom price. Please email me if you have any questions. Thank you" !!
