Cheap Laptop - £40.00 delivered

6y, 1w agoPosted 6 years, 1 week agoFeedback:159 Positive/1 Neutral/0 Negative
old and tatty Packard Bell K5305 laptop up for grabs

Comes with Win XP Home COA

Pentium 4 3.05GHz
256MB RAM
30GB HDD
15" LCD
no built in wifi but has PCMCIA card - untested
DWD/RW - reads cdcs / dvds but not fully tested

comes with Power Supply only

lid has been cracked and repaired
wrist rest scruffy

This has been lying around for ages and I have just botted it up and it does boot up and load into windows - but beyond that it is untested

wifi PCMCIA will need drivers

I cannot offer any guarantees on how well this will fully work with all functionality but if you need a cheap and cheerful XP lappy then this may well suit.

will be sent via Collect+

pics send if needed
Shipping/Payment:
PPG or BT
Delivered by Collect+

you are first to offer so yes you can have it

but please confirm that you understand that I have only booted this into windows and check that there are no missing oddities in device manager - nothing else

it works in that it boots up and I can get into things like the HDD and device manager but nothing else has been tested - it was going in the bin but thought it maybe of use to someone.

hope this is OK

TBH I would rather sell it to someone who would know how to fix it if there are any issues with it - or use it as spares - or just wants it as an XP box for phone repairs etc

maybe not what you are looking for TBH

The Ram/Memory is a heavy let-down & so will the Graphics for gaming but will handle older games like Pac-man,Bejewlled etc.
On the good point the CPU/Processor is very good & at £40 it's a very good buy.
Elitom I can't seem to find a Spec page on the net for this,But what is the Max for Ram does it take ?
G1984 buy it if you don't have one as £40 is not a gamble.

crucial says

Packard Bell EasyNote K5 Series Laptop/Notebook

# Maximum Memory: 1024MB
# Slots: 2 (2 banks of 1)
# Standard Memory: 128 or 256MB removable
# USB Support: 2.x Compliant

WMN - TBH if someone wants this to be a perfect working 100% laptop then this is not the one!

It probably better than spares repairs because it appears to be functional and all parts are there - but betond that it may need a frsh instal of windows anda tidy up. As I have said it is not fully tested so some elements maybe faulty but as you may appreciate it isnot worth my time to fully check it out for maybe an extra tenner or so - and right now I do not habe the time !!!!

answers copied here for others and to be fully open and honest ....

Delivery is by Collect+ - see the website for the process

http://www.collectplus.co.uk/

and takes 2-3 days

I cannot honestly guarantee that is is fully working as I just do not have the time or inclination to fully test it - sorry but I have several business trips coming up plus the upcoming holidays to prepare for.

The last time I used it over a year ago it did work but I have just booted into windows to check the spec - no more

therefore this may need some work / drivers / TLC and maybe some parts I have no idea but it is probably too good just as a spares and repair case.

I cannot be more honest than that
