    Ok, here's the deal...used HP ZT1230.

    1.33GHz Celeron
    256MB RAM
    60GB HD
    14.1" screen
    DVD-ROM
    Floppy
    Built in Wi-Fi
    $475
    Weighs 5 pounds.
    Perfect, like new condition.

    Depends what you are going to use it for. CPU is a bit too old nowadays, RAM needs to be 512 HD is OK, but again depends on usage. Screen is tiny 17" is much a standard. DVD good. Floppy - I forgot what this is because I use mine so little!! WiFi about the most hi tech thing in that bundle.

    Not too bad for $475, but I would have a look around on the net for better deals. May be a little more cash, but you could get a lot better system - again you may only need this setup, but depends on what you are going to be doing with it!

    Good price? Somewhat.

    Good idea? Nope, i would never suggest anyone buying used/refurbished PC parts, especially a laptop. If you do end up getting it, and if they offer a 3 year warranty, which i doubt on a used machine, take it! It will be expensive though.

    Are you sure? I bought a Thinkpad 600E used off Computer Geeks back in October 2003, and it works like a charm.

    It had a small spot on the screen where the image was darker, but you never notice it after a minute or so of use.

    Other than that, you would never know it was used, and it only weighs in at 4.5 pounds.

    Also, my Radeon 9700 Pro is used/refurb from Newegg, and it works great.

    ok, well let me add, number one this is a laptop. a couple people seem to think it's a desktop.

    second, i already have a high end toshiba that i use for most of my work. this is just somewhat of a secondary laptop to keep some data on when i travel, etc. again, it's really a secondary computer that will be used 4-5 times per year.
