Another laptop for sale...

Being that it always seems I come into older computers and laptops, I have another laptop for sale. This is an Inspiron 5000. Price is $300.

Computer is in excellent shape and will come with Microsoft Office and Windows XP Pro preinstalled. Computer also will come totally and professionally optimized (I'm talking cleaning out extraneous registry entries, etc.) Just to put it in perspective, I've had a PIII 0.8ghz machine running faster than a Pentium 4 with these tweaks. Specs on the machine are PIII 600mhz (I believe) and 128MB of RAM. The machine is more than adequate for any internet surfing, word processing, pretty much anything except for heavy gaming. I've seen this machine going on ebay for around $250 but that's without the tweaks, OS and Office. Please let me know if you're interested... THANKS!

EDIT OF DESCRIPTION OF LAPTOP FOR SALE:

Laptop comes preloaded coincidentally with University of Conneticut software, background and licenses. No warranty provided, and if you notice UConn inventory stickers on the machine, please ignore.

Re: Another laptop for sale...

Re: Another laptop for sale...

That Guy - Do those include XP Pro and MS Office? Most of those cheaper configurations usually come with XP Home (which is pretty useless if you want to do anything through a router) and no Office (just WordPerfect), which could cost up to 400 bucks additionally. And to upgrade Malcolm's laptop to those levels wouldn't be terribly expensive.

Just my .02. Unfortunately, I'm not quite yet in the market for a laptop again...good luck selling it.

Re: Another laptop for sale...

Yeah, that's my selling point. I'm selling it for a friend and they're giving me all those programs with it. I know you can get faster ones online but most are reformatted drives or Windows 98/ME.

I only get 25% of the profit, but still, money is money when I just put in the bid on this house.

you can't upgrade a laptop's processor. and older ram is more expensive than newer faster stuff

not saying malcolm's deal is bad (if you just need a laptop for office and not 3d games etc, its perfect), but pointing out that doubling the processor speed would be extremely cost prohibitive.
