As an eBay-er of long standing, I've found these folks very good for secondhand and "for parts" electronics of all sorts, including laptops:

I always buy computer parts from ebay and have good results every time.

 

Most computer parts are pulled from working computers and are name brand quality components.

 

Do your searching well and you will find great deals from ebay.

 

Always check the sellers reviews.

I  have lately resorted to friends who frequent Japan and get to Akihabara in Tokyo.  It's like the flea market, operation is questionable but wise selection of units, one with broken display, one with smashed keyboard and another with a fried system board and at a third of the price for all three, you might get one put together working.  Ebay is pretty much the same thing, there's no guarantee on the operation of anything you buy.
