I have a
Dell C600 PIII 650Mhz
512MB RAM
20Gb HDD
Works perfectly

£150+del or you can collect from Birmingham area.
If you are interested I can confirm exact spec.. Let me know.
#4
650mhz is abit too slow mate and was looking at more around 2.ghz so i think il pass :(

cheers though

no offence mate but on ebay you'd be lucky to get a 2ghz laptop for £250 never mind £150

might want to ask yer mate to check his change jar and see if he can scrape some cash together
#6
I sold a 1.8ghz Pentium Centrino a few months back for around £170 with 1.5 gig of ram and a 40 gig hd.

So its possible.

was it working? :giggle:
#8
for £150 id expect a lot better than a 600mhz cpu !

i paid 210 for my centrino from Dell NEW !!! inspirion 1500 :D
#9
Yep it was working and only about 6 months old, just didnt like it and bought another better one.

Sold it cheap as Dell has a lot of cheap laptops which people buy up so not willing to pay much lol
#10
well i was just a little late on a 2.3 ghz with 700mb ram on another forum for £150 so i think i should be able to get a decent one for that much

Does he want to be able to use it mobile because i've got a spare laptop i don't want, its a acer travelmate 233XC 2.0GHZ intel celeron cpu 256mb ram and 20GB HDD, its nothing flash but it'll do word processing/surfing, only thing wrong with it is the batterys duff and it only holds about 10-15 mins charge.

what condition is it in, has it got wireless and how much are you looking for it? I have got a brand new nintendo ds lite + 2/3 games if you want to consider a swap.

I've got a

Toshiba Satellite L10 Pro
Intel Celeron M 1.5 Ghz
40GB Hard disk
Has 256MB RAM + more for an additional cost if wanted.
Operating software is Windows XP 2002 Professional Edition SP2
Resolution is 1024x768
CD Burner/Player + DVD Player + external Phillips DVD re-writer for an additional cost if wanted.
Pretty sure it has 1MB L2 Cache Memory.
It has wireless capabilities.

This is not a gaming machine but the 2 games that I do play on it (Football Manager 2007 and Age of Empires 3) run perfectly. If you've played either game you'd know neither game has much graphic conditions.

This laptop is about two years old but i've taken good care of it.
The only problem with this laptop is that if it gets very hot the screen goes off sometimes. This would not be an issue if your planning on connecting the laptop to a monitor or tv or if you don't run too many programs at the same time.

The laptop is perfect for internet browsing and word processing. It has a decent battery life (2 hours on average) and doesn't weight much.

It would also include/exclude (if you don't want 'em) loads of application soft wares such as....
Microsoft Office 2003 (Word, Excel, Publisher, Access, etc) + OneNote 2003
Avast Anti virus (no contract as its free)
Intervideo Win DVD
Spyware Terminator (no contract as its free)
Adobe Photoshop 7 & Imageready
Macromedia Dreamweaver
Nero
ITunes+Windows Media Player+Quicktime
MGI PhotoSuite 3, Mozilla Firefox, IE
There are loads more softwares on the machine but these are the important one's.

I could go on forever about what this laptop has but i'll wait till you show some interest.

Its in great condition, other than the battery being knackered as said there is nothing wrong with it, in fact i haven't used it much at all but i've got a macbook now, it doesn't have built in wireless but i do have a BT wireless PCMICA card for it which will come with it, i have the box not sure about the original factory restore disks but its running winborg atm which i can reformat and re-install that also have a Laptop rucksack which will come with it as i don't need it coz i have another one for my macbook

EDIT i just looked on the underside and theres some marks on the bottom but nothing major

how much you looking for??

If you were talking to me...
I want £150 + postage as the screen does mess up sometimes (so its not perfect condition).
For the external DVD burner I would want another £40 if you want it.
For an additional 1GB RAM I would want another £35 if you want it.

Let me know if your interested.
#18
hmm, ive just had a word with her and recommended her to save up a bit more and get a decent one for about £300+ so thanks for the offers!

mods can close if they want :)
