Out of curiosity, I brought a laptop with 2GHz 64bit Intel CPU, ATI graphic, 2G RAM, 320G HD, as reported by Vista. The seller asked for $600 and it seems too good to be true. To my surprise, he accepted my offer for $300. So, I got this incredible laptop for half-price.
First of all, it is too slow for 2G CPU. When I started loading up the second partition (300G), it crashed every time. So, I took it apart. Sure enoght, the hard drive is 20G (1.8").
I brought another hard drive and loaded it up with XP. Now I got a P- III 750MHz, trident video, 256M RAM and 20G HD. I probably overpaid $50 to $100, but still a nice slim light weight laptop.
I am just wondering how they do it. Did I get a custom OS? Any one with similar experiences? Seems like lots of work just to earn my $50. Buyer beware!!!
