    If anyone has a CD lying around that will revitalize Brad's sans-operating system Laptop, please let me know :)

    As I am moving around a little at the moment, I would love to get my hands on a laptop. Anyone got anything half decent lying around they no longer need?
    I know full well how to use computers, but very little about the jargon ect.
    I just want something that works, and is reasonably reliable. It will have to handle internet/email/some piccies and some music.
    Cheers.

    All sorts of specials on here, mate, they have Refurbished systems, as well as New ones.

    There's also plenty of Netbooks out there that will do what you need, from around $300, up to $600.

    I bought Warran an eee.pc netbook for $167 from Hardly Normals. Little ripper it is - light, fairly good battery life, and the best bit ... it fits in the tankbag. :up:

    I've got a spare laptop you can have a lend of...it's old and the battery is cactus (is perfectly fine otherwise...for word processing and porn for example)...but you can have it as long as you need it ;)

    You will need to sort out an operating system though.

    Don't get ahead of yourself M8...looks like the screen is about rooted (not completely blank but very dark...Googling would suggest the screen is on it's way out).

    But...I have a spare 15" LCD monitor that you are very welcome to (it's been sitting in the cupboard unused, next to the laptop for about 3 years...and frankly I'd be happy to get it out of the cupboard...it's taking up beer space :D).

    So if you need it as a completely portable type machine it may not be for you...but if you need it simply for home then it is perfectly fine.

    Well, it was going to do some Mittagong-Sydney-Mittagong runs, but I can leave a monitor at each end for the time being, that would be fine :)

    Ah, google... is there anyone else nowadays!
