    "2 for 1" - desktop and laptop

    Being on disability means a limited income, and car expense becomes an "extra". Have such an "extra" today, so have the following for sale - please note this is in a suburb of Minneapolis, MN., USA. I can only meet locally in a public place.

    Laptop:

    • Dell Inspiron 8500
    • P4 2.2ghz
    • 1gb memory
    • 60gb hard disk
    • CD-RW/DVD combo drive
    • ATI Radeon graphics
    • Wireless
    • Currently running xubuntu - will wipe disk, can reinstall xubuntu if you want it (it runs well on it)


    Desktop:
    • Lian Li A09B case (ATX)
    • 500 watt power supply
    • Biostar TForce P965PT motherboard, Core 2 Duo 1.86ghz
    • 2gb ram
    • SATA DVD-RW/DL
    • 750GB SATA drive
    • 2 - 160gb EIDE drives
    • USB wireless adapter (works "out of the box" with Ubuntu 13.10)
    • no video adapter - using the card in another PC
    • this was to be my "learn ubuntu server" box and to play with RAID


    Aslo have a 250GB external USB drive to go with it all (the drive itself is EIDE inside the case).

    I hate for any of this to go, but it is a must-need for me.

    $200

    Thanks for looking.

    EDIT: okay, I hate to do this, but if it helps me sell these -> I can install Windows XP Pro on either or both. Not sure where to get the drivers, but I will try.

    Anyone? $175? I suppose I could ship within the U.S., but I have to take things to a UPS store to be packed and shipped, and it is VERY expensive (last time I shipped a desktop it cost more than $170 for them to pack and ship it). If I pack it myself they claim UPS won't insure it. I would prefer to avoid that hassle, and any arguments about shipping costs, bu keeping it local.

    Okay, I can go down to $150 and that includes a new Tenda 5-port switch. I've opened the box and looked at the thing but never used it. If it will help sell all of this, I also have another brand new in box Tenda W322 (I think that's the number) USB wireless adapter to go with everything. These 2 times alone are over $50. The Lian Li case is expensive as well. I think it's the lowest I can go before I just keep it for myself. I *need* the money, but I also don't want to just give it away.

    ATTENTION Twin-Cities LUG (or groups?) - perhaps someone you know needs this????
