I'm looking for a used laptop to run linux on and mod. I've been searching ebay but there aren't enough options for me to really narrow the listings down.

Are there any other sites that allow you to search by more than just speed and hard drive size? Even using keywords on ebay is tiresome as some listers use different terms.

Thanks

The big question, how much do

The big question, how much do you want to spend? You can get a whole differnt market if you want to spend 350 dollars verses spending 150. You want a used laptop that can run linux, but give us a price range.

When shopping for a used laptop to run alternative os's on, its best to go with popular laptops only because more people probably have made drivers for them and so forth.

price/features

I know what features I want and the prices these laptops are going for 300-500. I'm just looking for a site that makes searching through listings easier.

Ebay pretty much is it that I know of. What features are you looking for in a 300-500 dollar laptop?
