This was deal done from Carousell.

Caousell username: fieyra_ira

Selling: Dell laptop purchased at RM1025

Tel: 019-8573089

Area: Palmyra Residences Bangi (not sure if she even live here)


The laptop is mostly working fine except a few keys are not working. Most important of the keys are "/" and "P".

When COD, only had a quick test and unlucky did not test those non-working keys. Seller said no problems with the laptop.

She also requested to only accept CASH. No bank transfer and no TnG. Now I know why cause she do not want to be traced.

She already removed the posting. She already blocked me in Whatsapp.

Lesson learned:

1) Not to trust when seller said everything working fine. Test as much as you can. Understand that sometimes this is not possible. So it's all luck.

2) Do not accept anyone who only want CASH. Make sure to use bank transfer or TnG so that they can be traced.

3) Do not trade with someone who is new and do not have any sales. I have not trade much lately so I forgot about this point.


Thanks and safe trading everyone!

The keyboard is not easy to replace as the whole motherboard need to be removed. The whole keyboard + the top palm rest is in one piece.

Yeah, my fault also for too trusting. I should have seen the signs. Cannot even let loose one bit.

I'm not sure but if you are buying laptop, the test may be typing out (in excel/notepad) all the keys maybe except "functions" key and also test basic like ctrl+c or ctrl v ?

There is always a risk buying from user who doesn't have review at all. however she is still relatively new, only 2months + showed in her account. Thus pre-caution should be exercise.


you may want to check how much is the repair for the keyboard with dell. basically the spec is quite good.
