I have waaaay too much crapola sitting here in my shop, so I have to get rid of some stuff before I move. Here's a partial list of stuff:

Toshiba Portege laptop. Very very nice little laptop if you don't need tons of power. Has a PIII 650 with upgraded memory (196 meg) 4 gig h/d. Screen is perfect, no dead pixels that I can detect. 2 pcmcia slots, and integrated modem. The power connector is tight (which is relevent for used laptops if you don't already know that) This is a thin profile notebook similar to the VAIO 505 series. The battery holds a great charge, it seems like it lasts about 2 hours on a full charge. It comes with a nice docking station that has a DVD drive, floppy, and integrated network interface. I'll eeven include 2 power supplies, one for the road, and one to keep plugged into the docking station, (not just a port replicator, but a nice full size dock) and a wireless PC card. It'll be cleaned and reloaded with whatever version of Windows you want, and will have a disk with all the latest available drivers and utilities for it from the Toshiba website. This little baby has had very littleuse over the last couple of years, mostly for network diagnostics and VNC connections to servers. $280 shipped and insured.



Also got a Sharp Zaurus SL5500 PDA that runs on Linux. I love this thing. It has a great screen and a built in keyboard. The wow-factor of this thing is off the charts.





It runs a 206mHz Strongarm processor with 64 megs of on-board ram. It has a touchscreen which is 3 1/2" with a 240x320 resolutions, 64K colors.It has both CF and SD slots, either of which can be used as memory space to install applications, of which there are literally thousands that can be downloaded from the internet. Most are free. Character input can be done either with the built-in keyboard, handwriting recognition (which is pretty good) or the on-screen keyboard. It uses a Linux OS, which the Sharp version is pretty nice as-is. However there are large groups of guys that have made a career out of hacking the OS, and have developed at least 4 or 5 differnt flavors. Some better than others. I've loaded most of them and there are two or three that are good alternatives to the stock install. Each has their upsides and down sides, it just depends on what you want to do with it. There are even applications that will turn it into a glorified remote control. This has also had almost no use since I bought it a coupld of years ago. Frankly the only reason I'm selling it is because I don't really use it all that much. I'm not a PDA kinda guy, I always forget to use them and end up writing stuff down on peices of paper that I lose. Comes with the docking station, charger, all the software I've accumulated for it over the last couple of years, some of which isn't available any more. It'll also come with the manufacturer's CD for the Windows sync and drivers. I'll even provide some tech support if you want to learn to flash the ROM with any of these other OS's. (although everything is readily available online) Shipped and insured- $200.

I also have laptop parts coming out my wazoo. Mostly HP, Compaq, and Sony. Screens, keyboards, motherboards, processors, ribbon cables, drives, enclosure parts, you name it. Some of the lappys I have for parts are: Sony: PCG-F390, PCG-974L Comaq Presario 700, HP Pavillion N3390. Even if you don't see your particualr model listed, many parts are interchangeable between models, so give me the part number and I'll try to match it up. I also have a bunch of laptop power supplies.

I also have a ton of premuim sound cards (SB Live and Audigy) plus a couple of High-end digital recording cards. Video, lan, you name it. Most of those I'll let go for a couple of bucks and shipping, which will be very reasonable, since I know how cheap these things are.

If you need anything, just shoot me a PM and I'll see if I can hook you up.
Thanks,
~Taiji

Now that PDA is sweet!

Do you happen to have a PCMCIA wireless card that will work under Linux with little to no fuss?
I.E. Not a Broadcom or atheros.

I am also on the never ending hunt for a Super CHEAP 15 inch desktop LCD. I don't care what shape it is in so long as it works.
I need this for a mod I am trying to finish.

I do have a wireless card I can throw in for an extra couple of bucks. It's actually CF though, there's no pcmcia slot on the Zaurus. I forget the manufacturer, but it's sweet and works great under the native OS. Let me know if you're interested.

Those who have sent me PM's, if I haven't responded yet, stick with me, I'll get to you. Thanks to everyone for your inquiries.

No no sorry I was not clear. Unfortunately I like the PDA ,but cannot buy it, or my wife would castrate me.
I need a PCMCIA wireless card for my laptop I am tired of fighting with trying to get my internal Broadcom 4306 to work in Linux.

Doh! I have about three or four wireless cards here. Let me check and see if they have any linux drivers with them. What flavor of Linux are you running?
