Hi all,

I'm looking for a laptop to use as a low-power file server. For that reason, I don't need much CPU horsepower or much RAM, don't need a working screen (although a functioning VGA out is an absolute must) and don't massively care whether it comes with a harddrive or not, I just want a basic laptop that works, is reliable enough to run for months without being so much as looked at, has working USB ports, and won't add too much to the power bill. I'd also like for it to be cheap.

If anything's got anything lying unused (which I'm guessing might be the case, since replacement screens are usually not cost-effective to replace), let me know and we can maybe arrange something.

I think the original asking's a tad steep (by contrast, I can buy a fully-working system of the same spec for £160 from Gumtree), but what sort of price would you settle on without the harddrive or the RAM?

unsure to be honest, how about £80 delivered

Still a little higher than I was really wanting to pay, but, yep, I'll consider it. What I'll do is I'll investigate a few other options, see if other offers come in, and I'll drop you a PM when I work something out.

i have a pentium 3 laptop if you are interested £60 delivered. It is in working order and the LCD work bar 2 lines which intermittently come on. Iy is a really thin laptop, so should be great for what you need it for. Toshiba Portege 7220.

If you want something older, i have a Portege 7020, but that has a pentium 2,.

Cheers for the offer, but £60 for a P3 is waaay too much these days, when Core2Duos are getting close to the £100 mark.

Tempting. The shortage of USB ports is a problem (although, I know I can add another three or so with a PCMCIA USB card), but I'll add it to the shortlist and let you know. Thanks.

Not bad. IIRC, those have built-in wireless and take DDR RAM, don't they? I'll stick it on the shortlist.

Hello

I have a Dell that the screen has just gone wrong on.

Sorry but I am not a technical person, but it is a Vostro 1500, with intel core 2 Duo, Windows Vista.


I have no way to arrange the carriage but you are welcome to do this if you want. It has 4 USB and a SD card slot. and is a DVD RW.

Let me know if interested

I have a fully working Dell 4100, with 50gb HD(i think will check) 512 ram, running windows XP 1.2Ghz. The best I could do is £70.00 delivered via recorded. This is in really good condition, used for daughter before getting her IPAD.

Let me know.

Thanks
