Ok, so I have made a deal with my school's IT Manager. He has all these Thinkpad 600es just sitting in a drawer, but since they don't have network cards, he has never deployed them (too much of a hassle). They were donations from a Bank of America apparently.
Anywho, the deal was I sell them for him and he gets pocket money for miscellaneous stuff he needs (Case fans, extra hard drives) to keep the school's tech working, and I get to pocket a small portion of each sale, as long as I do all the grunt work. :\
So here is my deal for you guys. I have loaded the machines with a choice of Operating Systems and software. Specs for each machine are as follows:
Code: Select all
Operating Systems (Choose One) - Win98SE w/Autopatcher Update - Puppy Linux (2.14 or Latest as of Shipping Date) - Ubuntu (Latest as of 5 Days Before Shipping, any released Freely downloadable version, Xubuntu or Ubuntu Preferred) Intel Pentium II 300mhz Processor PC66 64MB and 32MB RAM (128MB Total) Ultrabay Battery and Battery (both DOA) Official Power Supply 6GB Hard Drive (You might get 10GB, luck of the draw here) NO FDD OR CDD 1 USB Port Proprietary TV-Out Port (Cable NOT included) 13.3" LCD Power Supply (Forgot to add this :P )
Other items of note:
Code: Select all
- Some may have scuff marks where paint is chipped off, nothing major and not on all of them. - The BIOS Batteries will need to be replaced on most of them. I have successfully charged the laptop overnight and revived the BIOS battery on one, so you might be able to do the same on yours. The laptops might give a BIOS error on startup, so I suggest charging it overnight before starting it up. - There are no network cards for any of these. I was going to buy a set of 10 to sell with each, but decided it was going to add an unnecessary amount and that you guys might have other preferred brands. - I will charge extra to test all the ports on the laptop because of time constraints, but only $3. Not necessary IMO because they seem in relatively good condition.
All laptops will be shipped via USPS flat-rate shipping with Insurance and Delivery Confirmation valued at $40. Other shipping methods will cost extra, as will shipping out of the Country, unless you have a FedexKinkos account or similar that I can charge. PM me if your circumstances are special and we can arrange a deal. NO SHIPMENTS TO NIGERIA OR SIMILAR
I guarantee all laptops I send will not be DOA. All "features" as some might say are stated EXPLICITLY, and any changes to my policies will be added in my subsequent post. I have sold many things on this forum before and have bought things as well, so I can assure you I will not cheat anyone out. It is the Savant Stamp of Approvalâ„¢.
FIRST COME FIRST SERVE! ANY UNSOLD LAPTOPS BY THE 30TH OF APRIL GO TO EBAY!
