Have at it.
I was also looking, and I think this might be the best deal ever.
Only bad thing is there's no OS.
Oh, and it's a refurb (but big deal).
It's a Dell, no, it's not worth it for that price.
Additionally, you'll get what you pay for. A laptop for $800 will probably lead you to an area you wish you did not step in.
You can get a good laptop for a couple hundred dollars more. Aim for an IBM thinkpad. I'd even go with Toshiba or Fijitsu. Browse around.
I personally would get an Asus notebook over any of them, but they're a little more pricey.
It really depends what you plan on using it for.
He said he wants under $800. I gave him exactly what he's looking for.
I don't know what you've got against dell... Dell notebooks are pretty good from what I've seen.
IBM's are overpriced out the ass.
Pretty good from what you've seen?
Try a 24% return rate on defective laptops in 2004. Or better yet, 26% return rate this year.
Yeah, go buy a Dell. And it would be smart of you to buy it from that place liek that as well. It probably voids the warranty which you'll need since you're buying a Dell.
IBM's are a little bit more costly than Dells, but like I said, you get what you pay for. IBM makes decent machines. In my opinion, I'd get an Asus. Screw Dell. I hope you buy one.
Get an iBook from an Apple reseller. Best $800 notebook you can buy.
I got a T23, 1000mhz for $370, if you're interested in a similar product, let me know.
Ah, yes. I would also recommend this. But people tend to avoid Apple for reasons due to unfamiliarity. Good choice.
Make sure you don't get a defective one then?
Perhaps you're right, although it's a good price for what I'm lookign to do with it.
Yes, dumbass. Because when you go Purchase a brand new Dell, or used Dell, you'll know if it's defective or not.
A little more than $800....but a great deal.

Purchase a Tecra A5-S416 and upgrade to 1GB of memory, compliments of Kingston for the price of the notebook (which includes 512MB of memory). $110 Value. Offer good through 12/31/05.
I still think that the dell is a good deal.
Ok? Go ahead and buy it then.

or look at this thread i started a week ago. u jacked my exact same thread title too
Fuck it, I'm not gonna be able to find what I'm looking for in a laptop without spending more than a grand. Thanks anyway.
Er, sorry for the thread jackage.
get the dell? wahts the prob?
I really don't like Dell notebooks. I think its best to go with a consumer appliance maker who knows what they are doing when it comes to making such things. Apple/Sony.
