I'm looking to replace an old failing pentium m that my daughter has been using. Doesn't need to be anything too flash, she's been using ubuntu perfectly happily on the pentium m. A bit of an upgrade would be nice...  though cheap is the key word here, as she's nine and younger siblings will use it too. So GZers, what have you got? :)

Looking for something in auckland. 

would also consider old desktops if they're not too big.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Can you please define cheap?  How cheap are we talking about? Maximum budget?

Netbooks like this one go for around a hundred on trademe, might be a good type to get?

quebec: Can you please define cheap?  How cheap are we talking about? Maximum budget?


Very much depends what you have... 

I suppose I'd consider up to $200, but ideally looking for something under $100.  Something a bit older and\or with defects that can be worked around is fine (e.g. broken keyboards or trackpads, battery issues provided it works on power, etc) 

And I was hoping for GZ prices over Trademe prices ;-)

I have two Dell D620's, one with a smashed screen and one not. Both with 4Gb ram, both C2D (although I forget the GHz), both have dead batteries, both ran W8 perfectly but my kids now have chromebooks. I would want to keep the hdd but I have a spare to put in it somewhere. They will have some COA on the bottom but I forget what....probably XP :) Have a dock too for external screen etc for the broken one.

I also have a D620 in pieces (I cant remember whats wrong with that one), a brand new screen to replace the broken one and a relatively new Acer somethingorother with a big, but broken, screen. There is also a Dell C600 in pieces but was used to play music ;) Oh and a D820 which turns the power brick off whenever you plug it in, just never got around to looking at fixing that one !

PM me if anything is of interest. I wouldn't be looking for much but I wont be able to give you firm details on them for a day or two, just too busy at the moment sorry :(

Hi,

Are you still looking for a laptop?  I have an IBM X41 tablet, in perfect working condition (except that the battery only lasts about 30-40 minutes).  It is a touch screen model, Pentium M, 1.5GB of RAM.  The touch screen requires a pen, which I have, but it is not the original and does not fit properly into the slot.

Comes with PSU.  I am in Auckland.  Looking for $90.

Can you PM me details of this laptop? (Not wanting to take over the thread).
