View Full Version : Laptop needed

01-17-2008, 03:13 PM
My mom is in the market for a new job and desperately needs a PC to apply for jobs and keep up her PC skills. Does anyone have a used laptop laying around that they are no longer using. Nothing fancy required, just as long as it is reliable and has a NIC and that it will run when plugged into the wall (dead batteries are not an issue). I thought about a PC and I think this will be much easier on her in the beginning. Cheap to free...

Mac....not sure yet. She needs Xcel and I doubt the dual boot would go over too well with her.

I have one that works and is still fairly fast. Need to re-image the HDD but that is OK. LMk if you want the details.

i have one that has a dead screen and would have to be hooked to a monitor, which I also have. I have another one that is not booting up that I need to look at..

The simpler the better. When hardware fails, she blames herself as if she caused it somehow. XP and office would be great but I have both if I need to re-image the HD.

I also have a 19" monitor available for free as well if she can use it :thumb:
