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.
