    Up for sale is a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop with an AMD Turion MK-36 2.0GHz CPU, 1GB of DDR2 and a 60GB HDD. Has a DVD reader/CD writer, an SD card slot and an AMD X200 chipset. Windows XP SP3 (with COA) is installed and I am finishing the updates as we speak. I might even have media. Battery life is decent, and the case is in great shape, but a few minor scratches. You can see a few of them between the speakers and there are a few more around the Dell logo. Warranty just expired in December. Asking $300 shipped. No trades, just paypal.

    Heat is under t_ski (356-0-0).

    Added the speed on the CPU.

    A lot of people looking, but no interest? If you think my price is off let me know...

    backing up t_ski i have this exact same laptop. Iv ran xp-win7 on it with no problems. up until yesterday iv been on TPU using this laptop for 5 months since my rig died. really sweet machine its a pretty good laptop. Iv thought about buying another one but honestly i cant justify it it really does everything i want it to. its deff worth it


    /bump

    EDIT: and for people who are wondering this isnt one of those laptops were the touch pad gets discolored from use 3 years and mine is still the factory silver
    EDIT2: btw dells site says it max is 2GB i run 4GB in it fine

    If anybody wants me to add MS Office on it, I can probably do so for extra cash.

    That's true. What's not behind panels on the bottom are all beneath the keyboard. We use mostly Dell's at work, and I'd rather work on them than the Panasonics we have.

    Thats a nice laptop way better then a netbook. The reason i say anything about a netbook is because thats about all you can get for $300 in terms of a laptop...I have a Gateway lappy alot like this one(same specs looks almost the same too) and if this one is anything like my Gateway it is a great lappy...
    Also T is a great guy to deal with :)
