I suppose it is possible the sale could be legitimate. However, I would think the motherboard and screen would bring more by parting them out.
Sorry if i have offended you. There is all kinds of stuff sold on eBay that is of questionable origin. If the person buying knows or suspects the origin of an item then they probably don't care and would give positive feedback.
The fact the laptop has the security it has indicates it isn't real old.
Perhaps I am totally off base with my assessment.
