Welcome to BC.
I would be leery of damaged computers of any kind. Especially notebooks. They generally have proprietary components which are very expensive. I personally would not buy a notebook unless I could put my hands on it to inspect it. Some buy notebook computers knowing they a damaged to salvage parts from it to repair other computers. The bottom line is the person/company is probably selling the computer AS-IS. You could end up with a steal of a deal or a very large paper weight.
I have bought 5 notebook over the passed 4 yrs and two have been sitting on a shelf since '03 because they were damaged more sever than I thought. One was listed as the keyboard was not working. Come to find out whatever damaged the keyboard also damaged the motherboard, which made the notebook worthless except for the LCD screen.
It's your call but just be careful and good luck.
