Seems exactly what it's worth. Perfect for young children and homework. Otherwise I'd get a cheap Windows tablet and a keyboard. Giving it heat
Very old tech but great in its day.
These sell for about £60 on eBay.. So to be fair, this is actually a good price. Like xela333 said, these would be ideal for young children. Heat added
I would have loved a T7250 processor back in the day!

Still eligible for a Win 10 upgrade and could use it as a slave for downloads.

C2D is still pretty capable for basic things , though of course this is much heavier and less energy efficient than a modern Atom-based something or other. Heat, though I don't know why there's a need to state open box, I think if anyone actually had a new unopened one of these they might as well keep it as a collectible.
New battery too, what a bargain!
crap for tramps... who the hell would want this in 2016? even for kids its crap theyd moan all day with this ****! theres bargains and theres junk.

Not everyone can afford something better. For a family with a budget that can't stretch too much, this is ideal.
Used to have one for work. Nothing wrong with these. Ordered for homework which it will be ideal for. Have some heat.
Great deal - thanks OP!
I'd say the one downfall with the D630 is that the soldered ram has a tendency of failing. You can put another stick in, but once it happens it can be a real pain to boot up.
Thinking about it might be the D620 that has the soldered RAM - can't quite remember!

Shame about seller. Misco is a crap company to deal with.
Decent laptop, more RAM than many modern cheap laptops, and with Gigabit Ethernet it even makes a decent small server. The HDD needs an upgrade, thought.

PS: The GPU sucks, any kind of 3D is pretty much impossible.

Perfect, just about to order 2 for work, we need some laptops with serial ports and usb to serial dont always work!
Why does it have a 32bit OS with 4GB RAM?
I really fancy a roast dinner.
Perfect for Linux

You're my narrow minded hero.
Why not put your keyboard where your mouth is and find us a better performing deal for the same price. Please keep in mind it needs to have a keyboard, laptop sized screen, trackpad/pointer, be portable and have Windows installed.

Why does it have a 32bit OS with 4GB RAM?


Because you don't get 3.5GB or 1.5Gb sticks to put in it
I'm using a D620 as our only laptop so this would be an upgrade!

As has been said, perfect for cheap web browsing

Why does it have a 32bit OS with 4GB RAM?



Because 3.5GB on 32bit is about the same as 4GB with 64bit due to the larger overheads of 64bit, and it'll probably perform more quickly for the sorts of software this laptop would be used for.

Wouldn't buy anything from Misco, even this cheap - their after service is shocking.
This is a 9 year old laptop. It's not a hot deal, this is how much a 9 year old laptop should cost.
i find the ports-connectivity confusing.....does this have wifi?

It's been a few years, but I don't recall either D620 or D630 having soldered in RAM. They had 2 slots and both were accessible through a cover in the underside. I think 4GB is the max it can take, which is what this offer comes with.

Fairly dependable work laptop in it's day, but it's now probably pushing 8+ years old.

No, you would have to buy a wifi dongle
Just finished installing a cheap SSD into a D620 (Not soldered RAM), I updated to windows 10 and it performs just fine for basic use, using opera browser and seems pretty responsive. If this has a new battery then it looks like a bargain to me.I have in the past bought a number of D620 and D630 for the company. Found them to be pretty reliable. Before anyone questions installing an SSD into something this ancient, it was also a refurb hotdeal from over a year ago.

It should have either 802.11g, 802.11 a/g or 802.11 a/g/n via an internal card. If for some obscure reason someone has take the card out, you can pick one up for a few quid and they slot into a mini-pci type slot so very easy to fit.
Checking the site the same specs are £117 with a 1 year warranty.

Are you calling yourself a tramp? not all children are spoilt , they would be glad to be even given one atleast. Not everyone is born with a golden spoon in there mouth, see the food banks and what goes on behind closed doors and you will soon realise. Money comes and goes. You should be grateful for what you have

32bit can only address a maximum of 4GB RAM this includes all the memory subsystems, so you end up with around 3.5GB or less usuable. 64bit can address around 16.8 Million Terabytes of RAM or 16 Exabytes, no computer has ever had that much RAM available or hard disk storage and none exist that can accomodate that much.

So we reached the limit of 32bit addressing, I can safely say that in my lifetime will we never reach the limit of 64bit addressing for disk storage let alone RAM on single consumer computer.

The maths behind it:

32bit: 2^32 bytes, or 4GB
64bit: 2^64 bytes, or 16EB (16.8 million Terabytes)

Where ^ notates to the power of.

but it's easy to reach the limit of how much Ram your hardware and the OS will support (_;)

Actually for a lot of people this is more than they need in terms of spec. It will play YouTube fine be good for written work can download a good amount and shove in pen drive to transfer files. Hey even a £20 ssd will give it a good life.
