Offer - Very old (but FREE) laptop

Postby Nuit » 14 Apr 2012, 10:46

I'm retiring my Dell C610, bought in 2003. I think these are the original specs:
http://www.laptop4me.eu/PDF/DELL/DELL%20Latitude%20C610.pdf
Intel Pentium III, but upgraded to 512Mb RAM, 80Gb HDD, USB 2.0 via a plug-in Card-Bus.

It'll go for recycling, buy maybe someone here is interested. It's FREE, but you'll have to pay for shipping up front unless you can collect (Hualian).

I'll be wiping the HDD, although I still have a Win2000 install disk.
Power adapter included, no carry-case.

Known issues:
CD-ROM drive doesn't work
PS/2 connector is wonky
Battery doesn't hold charge
A few blue screens of death lately, don't know what the cause is.

Apart from all that (!), it's still working.

It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

Hard-drive (and Win2K) now wiped.

This is going... going .... going ... to recycling.

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there -- MONICA BALDWIN
