I live in South Africa and off the beaten track (postage wise) in South Africa as well.
After being quoted R5244 (about £400) in my own country from the agent for the same motherboard, I found LappyParts.co.uk to be selling the same montherboard for £74.68 delivered to my far away country.
I ordered at 5pm my time (3pm their time) and the motherboard was shipped the same day! Thats great!
The postage took a while (only got it 17 days later) due to national strikes on postage on our country.
I only had to pay for clearance which was R15 (£1) when on my other purchases it is normally about R220 (£15).
It took me a 45 minutes to open up the laptop and install the motherboard and once completed and plugged in, and press power with my eyes closed.
15 seconds later I opened my eyes and viola, Windows logon staring at me, my password was the same.
I logged in.
Absolutely NO "New Device" or "Device not recognised" messages. Device manager reported no warnings or errors, indicating it to be exactly the same as the original part, no tricks from refurbishing.
Well done LappyParts, I am really happy now! Thank You!!
