Looking to buy working but older laptop.
« on: 28 Jul 2009, 09:06 »

What it needs to do: play streaming videos from hulu & etc. Size not an issue. It also needs a DVD-Rom drive. Doesn't need to burn anything. WiFi is a plus but not necessary.


post specs and a pic here maybe

Wouldn't this be better suited for the PC & Hardware thread?

And, I think you could go for a Netbook.

He said it needs a DVD drive, so he would have to get an external with a netbook. I'm would assume that means he's not interested.

hey troll. i'm looking to buy a new laptop in september so i won't have any use for the one i am using now. it's about 6 years old, but plays videos no problem and is still in great shape otherwise. if you're interested and also willing to wait a couple of months, pm me and maybe we can work something out.

Is this the same laptop you frequently remind us all that you despise with a passion and curse at every other minute it's in use?

I can get anything working. And September sounds just about perfect. What's the model of the notebook/specs?

IBM T-23s are tanks. Apparently they are tanks (they are) but are selling for pretty cheap. You might have to upgrade the RAM for proper streaming performance but that won't be expensive at all.

Hey everyone, I need to buy some new bookshelves. When I get back from Ikea and put them together you're all invited to the bookshelf launch party.
