I have a friend that got laid off not too long ago. Her laptop died last week. I called support for it, they told me that it was a recalled part (motherboard) that gave out - but the recall window was closed. I was so pissed. They wanted $250 for the repair. It being a laptop, I don't have a lot of choices. Not only doesn't she have the $250, she is pretty much full on broke. I got on Craigslist. I found a FREE monitor. I am picking that up this evening. I found a Dell Dimension 4400 for $25. It has a bad hard drive and only has 128 megs of memory. I think I can come up with a mouse/keyboard. I can definitely come up with all software (this will be an XP build). What I NEED is at minnimum a 20 Gig EIDE hard drive. After that what would be nice is memory - DDR PC2700 or better. A video card (what is in it is a Rage ATI card. This is really fine for an XP build... I guess I don't really need this, but if you have something better that is just sitting around... and you don't mind donating it.... shoot me an email). If you are willing to donate the parts I will pay shipping. I will Paypal the cost to you. Thanks.
