Thanks but I found a computer for less than $500 that was comparable to yours and it had a warranty. But thanks for the offer

Hey KSU_Aviator-

I'm also looking for a laptop to carry on the road. About the one you just pruchased, were there extra laptops available or was it a solo item? Thanks.

An idea for you

I don't have a laptop I can sell, but I'll tell you where I got my road laptop, eBay!

I bought a Compaq 1235, 300Hz, 6MB storage, 96Mb ram, 56k modem, etc for only $200.

Give it a try, and be patient for the right deal.

Good luck,

J3

Thanks for the info. I have been looking at eBay so hopefully something will come along. The only thing that I don't like about the eBay process is that I'm the kinda person who actaually likes to see the product first. But, for some of those prices, you can't beat it.

Compaq laptop

I got mine on Ebay too. A Compaq 1200xl 700mgz 10gig 64mb ram. Ebay is a great place to buy computers (Buyer Beware though)

I got mine on eBay too....its an IBM Thinkpad 600E, 9.5 gig, 126 gig ram pentium II, DVD player 17" for 486 with shipping...but the catch was I had to put my own software on the computer. Unless the person who sales you the computer has the rights to the software you'll end up with out software too. Which isn't a problem until you find out that you have to download 4 or 5 updates to make your computer work. After I first installed 98, I had no modem, 16 colors (not 16 bit), and an INOP DVD player, now its all working but It took about 24 hours of work and a seperate computer and winzip to get it all on to my laptop. Also be careful of installing Win 95. If the computer had 98 on it previously you absolutly can not install 95. 98 changes the way the hard drive is formatted so much, you might as well be trying to run a mac program in windows, you'ld have more luck. Just some tips I learned over the past two days. Good luck.
