My $63 Alienware Laptop :)

Post by Tech_Greek » Sun May 20, 2007 11:34 am

Well, as some of you may or may not know I work at a computer shop and I had a fellow bring in a laptop that was whinning, it failed a hd test and we offered to repair it of course he didnt want to put anymore money into it so I said alright I'll give you $60 for it as a joke, and he took it!!! :shock:

So, I replaced the HD with a new 40GB and cleaned it up and it's come out nice...the LED in the alienware head light up intermint so I need to fix that, get a new battery, and a tab to go over the hinge...

I also swapped the celeron 1.5 1mb cache out for a 1.6 2mb pent m that I had laying around back there, so it scoots a little faster!

Either way, I'm typing this post on this and it rocks for $60!!

Yeah, it's only got the Intel Integrated, it was mainly a buisness computer.

And if anyone wants to buy it let me know and send me a PM on how much you want to buy it for! Nothing wrong with it just looking at an xbox 360 elite for the living room.

Apoptosis - that was mainly directed at you, I do have paypal btw ;)

Hmmm, I had always heard that Alienware cost an arm and a leg, but a foot isn't bad.
