My basic needs are pretty much above. A decent size HDD, graphics and ram wouldn't go a miss either but it doesn't really matter.. Must be running windows xp and has wifi enabled. Post what you have and what you would like for it. Thanks

I have Dell Latitude C400, using from one half year and never gave me any trouble, with standard specification of which salient are:

Processor manufacturer: Intel
Processor model: Mobile Pentium III-M
Clock speed: 1.2 GHz
RAM installed: 256 MB
Wireless LAN: optional
Hard drive size: 20 GB
Graphics processor: Intel Graphics Technology (integrated)
Display diagonal size: 12.1 inch, making it small size and low weight


Upgrades:
RAM upgraded to 512 MB from 256 MB, and can further be extended till 1 GB
HDD upgraded to 30 GB instead of usual 20GB

Additional Items:
External CD-ROM drive
External FDD
Dell media bay cable
Dell media bay CD/FDD Caddy
Bluetooth Dongle
Wireless LAN (Using BT Voyager 1065 for wireless LAN, which will be included in this package)
Laptop bag (a very basic soft skin bag)

Bad Bits:
Well battery charging capacity is quite limited.

Asking Price:
I am looking for £150+postage and packing or free local collection

I have a Dell Inspiron 500m - 1.3ghz, 512mb ram, 30gb hard drive, wireless, infrared, also has a swappable floppy disk drive - one downside is that it that it doesn't have a cd/dvd writer - it plays CDs and DVDs fine though (you could get an external hard drive)

it also has linux, as well as XP, installed if you wish to use a different operating system

It also has a special longer life battery which i bought about 6 months ago - you can get at least 4 hours basic use out of it or watch a DVD on full brightness without the battery dying. i also have a dell laptop which i can include.

the palm rests are a bit worn but no major marks or damage and the laptop runs fine - it is a reliable machine with no dead pixels or broken keys and xp works at a good pace - i have never found it to slow down or stutter

I will check the full specfications and post some pics if you are interested.


Sounds great, pics and where you are based would be appreciated. Pics of the wii coming shortly.

That is correct, I have been with hotukdeals for awhile now. I usually dealt with items I wanted privately, until now.

I understand that alot of people have been scammed, etc...I can provide references..i.e. ebay account..my contact details inc home tel..

If you're uncertain..then don't chance it....I'm sure I'll sell the laptop elsewhere (not advertised yet).. but I have been after a Nintendo Wii for awhile now...seemed like a good opportunity..

Nonetheless it's what you want at the end of the day that counts...
#12
It all depends on where you are based because i will be willing to trade providing it's somewhere i can reach you in either Kent or Manchester..
#13
I'm based in rochdale...which is approx 16 miles away from Manchester...
#14
Do you think you could reach manchesters town centre?

jonnyq
are you looking to trade with a Wii or would be willing to pay cash?

i checked the hard drive size and it says it is less than 30gb, this may be because linux is on there - i will double check that for you - the rest of the information is correct and it is actually 1.4ghz (not 1.3)

additional info - it has wireless but i don't know if it is specifically wi-fi - i have used it on a wireless network before so it definitely works - it also has a 14 inch screen - standard 1024 resolution

I am based in Buckinghamshire - but I don't mind delivering

I will get some pictures up tommorow.


Im interested in trade my friend. pics coming tomorrow

I can see the trade pulling through with windoz as we may be able to arrange a meet in Manchester which will be excellent as i need a laptop for college use.
#17
Myself and windoz completed a trade in person last night. I am using the laptop as i write this reply and we are both happy with the goods. Excellent trade thank you very much.
