Selling Librem 15 v3 TPM 16GB 1TB SSD $1400

I thought I’d offer this here before I post to eBay since this is a dedicated Purism community.

I’m selling my barely used Librem 15 v3 with TPM.

  • Librem 15 version 3 Laptop [American (US) Keyboard]
  • Memory (DDR4): 16GB (1x16GB)
  • Storage (M.2 SSD): None
  • Storage (2.5" SATA): 1TB SSD 1
  • Wireless: Yes
  • AC Adapter and Power Cord for US

I purchased it almost 2 years ago, haven’t used it as I intended, and I need the money.

Its original pricing was $2,426.00, but now new is $1,667. You can check (

I’m asking $1400. PM me your email if you’re interested

Pizza crumbs under the keyboard included :slight_smile:
Post some ‘acpi -V’ output, the battery is much more expensive than the SSD and RAM.
There are many “like new” listings with batteries over 500 cycles.

This has literally been used for 1-2 days, then sat on a shelf, sadly. I didn’t have the time to play with it.

Looks good.
Most eBay second hand laptops come with bacon under the keyboard and a smell of an Irish bar ashtrey,
so consider dropping around 30% of the base price if you go that route, just a tip.
I even got one once with greasy fingerprints, or at least this is what I wanted to believe it was.

sounds like you need to be more discriminating in your purchases, I’ve never received a laptop advertised as like-new that arrived otherwise.

“like-new” was regarding my first post, when usually battery cycles is the issue :slight_smile:
Since it’s a great way to buy flagship models of last year for about 50% of the price, but
they can come with non visual defects such as abused battery in many cases.

The “second hand” post was just about really “second hand” stuff, and by that I mean I get laptops
from several years ago and they came to me with various conditions, some of which are horror stories.
You can get good bargains with it, like beefed up x230s for less than 2 Franklins, but they come with
a story, just like a dog you get from a shelter :slight_smile:

I’ve listed the item on ebay. Starting bid is $750 and BuyItNow at $1,100. Pretty good deal compared to the Clearance price going on at the Purism Store right now.
