    I need a cheap, old laptop. Nothing fancy something like an AMD or Pentium 4 mobile 1Ghz+
    512mb ram, 20-80GB HDD, anything with-in those specs. Im giving it to my dad to use and possibly take on trips, he only uses very basic internet, e-mail checking and news.

    Please no laptops with dead batteries it needs to be moblie, and decent condition too.

    Will pay up to $200 if its a really good spec laptop.


    Will pay with paypal, i know someone has one they wanna get rid off :toast:

    I got a sony vaio... 3 yrs old, dual core, 80gb HD,perfect condition, recently keyboard, the "case", screen and HD that sony replaced free of charge because HD failed b/c of known problem and they didn't do recalls... very nice screen btw, glossy and great colors...

    I know its a lot more than you want, but hey I can still offer it to you... I'm asking 300$ish shipped

    seriously there is such a demand for laptops that are just for browsing,

    take my advice and raise the price you are offering

    I found one for 120 local, so i mean seriously, that was a AMD 3000+ XP moblie with 512mb ram and 60GB HDD drive so i know there are more out there..

    and netbooks cost to much for there sub-par specs All have Atoms.. i'd be better off getting a P4 since its faster

    The Atom aren't that slow. They everyday tasks very fine. My netbook is faster than any old, cheap P4 based Laptop that I have used.

    I would say that the atom 230 would stomp the P4, clock by clock the P4 would get stomped pretty bad, but since P4s got up to the upper 3 GHz range, that would probably make it faster slightly, but much more power hungry. I just cant wait for a netbook with 230.
