thoes are all horribly old laptops... thats why its so cheap/// p3 >.<

i was about to say that.

but if someone is looking for a laptop just to browse the internet or something, its not a bad deal...altho you could propably find a old laptop like this on ebay for cheaper.

In a way that is really a good deal.  :grin2:

Take for instance my mother-in-law. She has never operated a comp in her life, and over 63. Now she only wants it to e-mail back here when she is out of town.and check on her accounts. She is also a tight wad, which is besides the point. But say she had little $$ and needed it for really simple things. Why spend lots of $$. When these will serve the same purpose for less.  :grin2: I may refer her there.  :wink2:

Thanks ratchet.

And it beats the HELL out of Blue Hippo for folks on a budget.  :knuppel2:

You can get a real nice mac for $99.00 that will do the same thing...and be far less trouble for her.... (geeks.com)

I would stay away from any mac for 99 bucks. they are all going to run OS 9 or lower. and you dont want to deal with that.

I would stay away from any mac that is intel based.

I am a mac hater....don't mistake my intentions for a moment...but for someone who needs some basic things with little or no hassle this is a fine option for them and cheap too!

OK, so I am going to notlike myself for doing  this. But windows would be nice. I know no one that can teach her about MAC OS operations. If she had trouble on vacation, no one could help her. I know I could not teach... never mind.

Windows needed, please. I don't hate Mac, I just don't wish to learn a whole new language.

Was a real nice effort ISP. :grin2:

up there where it shows the laptops.. they are old.. buy a new, cheaper, faster one

ispgeek, i agree with the mac hating.. I HATE EM

Actually....its more the mac users that I hate than the devices themselves.  The users tend to be elitest wacko liberal types that just oooze with sarcasim.....I have been known to leave a coffee shop or two when groups of two or more come in...because they disgust me....
