    Windows laptop

    looking for any windows laptop for as cheap as possible. free would be best. I just want it for running power commander software and qstars lap timer software and I can't find any system requirements on them so I assume anything made in the last couple years will probably be fine.

    Re: Windows laptop

    I have an older dell, 8 years old probably. It was my wife's and she buggered it up so bad with spam and shit that it is extremely slow. You'd need to clean it up pretty good to get it running right, I don't have the proper knowledge to do it. You can have it, just with the gentlemen's agreement that any files recovered (like pics and such) make their way back to me. I have the computer and charger, etc. I think it has XP as the OS.

    thanks for the offer but any attempt by me to fix a windows machine will involve me throwing it through a real window.

    I'm out of freebies.

    Most of mine are old like the one mentioned above.

    If you want a newer one AND something that is freshly wiped for you, you better find someone really charitable.

    Brett, for $250, you can have a brand new Acer NetBook form Walmart. It's compact and light and runs everything you're looking to run.

    I have one and it works great. It also let's you upload and edit video.

    Re: Windows laptop

    I don't want to spend $250 for something that could very well end up being thrown across the room. I can't stand Windows but maybe its better than the last time I used one in college.

    I sent 01xj a PM about his. and I've found some for literally a few bucks (granted its early bidding) on ebay

    I hear you on that. I came close to throwing mine on Friday when it wouldn't let me in with the password I had set.

    I had to find a password cracker and clear it. Fuck Windows.

    XP is pretty old isn't it? not sure if Power Commander and Qstarz need something newer or not.

    I have to check memory and hard drive space but It's plenty for what you wanna do.

    I'll check the battery this Friday to make sure it works and install windows xp fresh.

    20 bucks? I can meetup this weekend sometimeWindows laptop-img_0342-jpg

    sounds perfect. I'm working this weekend but if you want you can meet up with me while I work. are you in Lowell or Lakeville? Lowell would work pretty good since one of my stops is in Chelmsford.
