    A celeron you say, they range from 300 MHz to 3 GHz... How big is the screen, any dead pixels? Battery hold a good charge? What speed optical drive, what size HD? Providing more info would be beneficial, or just post the model number.

    honestly ive never used it, its seriously in perfect condition. i would venture to say its a 1.8ghz-2.2 the screen is 15.4 standard not wide. batterys fine.

    Ok i have used it once, i remember checking the ram and it wasnt your typical amount of mb.

    I can give you exact numbers when i get home.

    thanks

    You can always try to look it up on Ebay to see what it's generally going for.

    with 168mb of ram, deducting points for being an hp, I'd say $250 assuming the battery holds 90mins+ charge, and the hard drive has no bad sectors.

    Doesn't matter if its in great shape or not, people on ebay will pay top dollar for any laptop, its quite sad actually.

    192mb of ram
    Raedon 345m video card.

    It doesnt seem to list any speeds of the cd-r/dvd rom.

    its a pavilion ze5600 battery still has excelent life seeing as how its hardly been used at all

    i dont know i love mine, its got some of the highest reviews of any laptop, and it plays counter-strike great for when im at work and bored:wiggle:

    Ive been threw quite a few laptops, VAIO worse pile of shit that money can buy. Had a dell, meh not bad but no wide screen. then a thinkpad, verynice but slow:( my toshiba has filled all my needs as far as work and fun goes.
