    Hahaha I have no idea, we were using it to glue the wood board to the gasket material before screwing and gluing it to the roof of the case. My friend called me over for the second time in 11 months asking me to fix his computer because he spilled water into the top holes.

    Picked up this thing off Freecycle today. Came with the proper 90W power cord and a port replicator. Even though it's the nVidia version it was free so I won't complain and it works.

    Specs:
    2.1 GHz Core 2 Duo T8100 (Upgraded, had a T7100 when I got it)
    1.5 GB DDR2 ram
    80 GB 5.4k Hitatchi HDD
    nVidia NVS 135M Graphics that still works
    DVD-ROM\CD-RW drive

    And the gunk I pulled from between the fan and heatsink. This was causing it to run insanely hot as it had almost no airflow.

    Wow a Latitude, I haven't seen one of those in a good 5 years. 100L was the model I worked on (had to repair dozens of them). Now I know your password I'm gonna start hackering your emailz and steal your wife on fassbook.

    Not quite sure, but I can tell you it has a lot of pet fur and a lot of dark dust caked in, almost looks like cigarette soot however it cleaned a lot easier than the last couple systems I got from smokers (Radeon HD 4850s are the worst to clean from smokers).

    That was the password on it when I got it; not sure why people bother having a password if they're going to put it on the palm rest. I wiped and reinstalled everything

    I've also worked on 100Ls before and they ran horribly hot (desktop processor I believe), were heavy and had not-so-great battery life (Let's just say my 1998 Thinkpad had a better battery). 1/10 would not recommend.

    Quick shot of my new waterloop setup - my GTX 780ti is clocked at 1120 core and reaches 1250 boost, temps haven't gone past 53 degrees after half an hour of Metro Last Light with Vsync off. Much better than the 84 degrees I was seeing at 1050 overclock and 1170 boost not to mention the noise difference. Twas a fun but irritating loop to setup thanks to the reservoir being a bitch to mount.

    I have a 2007 D530 I use that works excellent still, was a dell refurb from 2008, has a Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz I think, 4 gb ram (upgraded) and 500 gb hd (upgraded). Laptop has quite a bit of character from physical damage (falling off desk etc). I have a new plastic back panel I've been meaning to install on it but keep procrastinating, too many other projects.

    Nice mouse, interesting shape. Though I can't really comment on that, I use the RAT 7 with the "bat wing" pinky rest, lol.
    Very clean PC, aside form the small amount of dust.
    Love the Bulbasaur in the first pic ;)

    i had a R.A.T 7 before :) this one replace my G600 i love the wide space between the left and right click, unlike the G600 and 700 i used this one doesn't get right click stuck, and the battery durability is really good despite of being a non wireless wired like the G700 i think with 2 set of 2000mAh battery and a desk charger i will be able to get some good result, they rate it at 250hrs in performance mode and 1440hrs in endurance mode (switching the polling rate between 500hz and 125hz) well even at 125hz it's quite good in reaction time for a mmo or a rts, the shape is really comfortable and a bit more elongated than the G600.

    and a pics to stay on topic ahah :D

    Well, it's been a while since the last major upgrade. Some minor cable management adjustments here and there, decided not to route the 24 pin power and gpu power behind the case because the cables are rather long for this case and ended up in some weird angles which i didn't like.

    Anyways here it is - New power supply, graphics card, ram and a sound card.

    indeed it is a Razer Destructor mouse pad, but i use a Steelserie QCQ normally, i don't like Razer product much but for mouse pad they do just fine, plus it was cheap and with another discount for end of stock.

    for a laser or optical mouse, well it's a good surface, i can't really tell since the soft rubber and cloth QCQ is about the same for me, but if you like hard surface with a stable rubber base over soft pad, then it's a good one for you.

    whaaaattt it's not a PC? ok its a ARM powered Beaglebone Black but it run Linux Angstrom, so technically it is a PC right? :roll: no i need to find a case for the pup and stick it on the back of my TV (Smart TV anyone?)

    oh and remove all that dust ... damned flash revealing dusty world i don't see otherwise o_O
