  1. The processor alone is worth more then $100. I would take around $400 without the monitor, plus shipping. PM me, we can negotiate.
  2. This is a really great machine. Packs a bunch of power in a full-size tower. Below is a list of main parts. Intel BOXDP35DPM LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor CENTON 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel ZOTAC ZT-73TEG2P-HSL GeForce 7300GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (pulled) HITACHI Deskstar P7K500 HDP725032GLA360 (0A35411) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive LITE-ON Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner with LightScribe PPA Firewire 800 32 & 64 bits PCI Card Model 1226 Rosewill R220-P-BK Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Please note that I pulled the graphics card for my fathers computer which he needed asap, so you will have to pop your own OS X x86 compatible model in. I also put in the front two lower-bays, a memory card reader and a USB hub. It packs a total of 9 USB 2.0 ports, connected directly to the motherboard and on the motherboard. Also note that it packs two firewire 800 ports, one 400 port, and an iLink port on the back. The motherboard's firewire 400 port did not work in OS X so I bought the card. Ill include the OS X x86 copy disc I used, 10.5.2 and 10.5.6. I never bothered upgrading beyond that, experiment as you wish. Now down to the dirty details. I live in Los Angeles, so if you want this thing, you're going to have to pay shipping. It shouldn't be much and I will take that into account when negotiating with you. Specs not listed are a 500GB SATA drive I had purchased a few weeks prior, also included in this sale. I never tried the audio port because I used a Tascam break-out-box anyway, which worked great. Another item on the chopping block is my LCD monitor. It isn't old but it isn't brand new either. It is a 2005 model Dell 20-inch widescreen 1680x1050 pixel display. Packs DVI-D, VGA, and Component in. Also includes four USB port hub, two on the under belly of the monitor and two on the right side. More stuff! I also have a compatible USB Logitech webcam. It works in Leopard and I have a iChatUSBCam license which will allow it to work in iChat, microphone also works when tested. Included! PRICE: I am reasonable and we can negotiate. I want whatever I can be offered. Honestly I just want to get rid of this and make sure someone who can really use it. I don't want it to sit around. So make me an offer, don't worry about low balling it. What to include in the PM or email you may ask? Include your price offer, payment method, what you want and don't want (i.e. monitor, no monitor, camera, no-camera). That is all folks! The machine is in perfect shape. Open it up once a month and clean the baby! If you have any questions, email or PM me. Photos upon request. Thank you! -Aaron

  6. HP 2133 mini note netbook NEW LOADED

    runs really well under XP or Vista actually
  7. I am selling my HP mini-note 2133 netbook. I purchased it about a month ago and thought I would use it. I am more of a Mac person and although Vista is down right beautiful, I think ill stick with my desktop for a while. It came with a 4GB Solid State Drive so I ordered a 64GB, yes 64GB solid state drive and installed it. Its four screws away, and also upped the original 512MB of ram to a whopping 2GB of ram. Another thing I did is ditched the Linux operating system and went out and purchased a copy of Windows Vista Home Premium, which it handles very well and is very roomy with the new drive. It is virtually silent because there are no moving parts. Most models you will see that run Vista Business have 120GB hard drives in them, but those are moving and usually cut battery life in half, not on this model! SPECS Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium (disks included) Processor: VIA C7-M ULV CPU Speed 1.00GHz Screen Size: 8.9" widescreen with 1280x800 pixels! Memory: 2GB Hard drive: 64GB solid state drive Weight: 2.8 lbs. Webcam? Yes LAN 10/100/1000Mbps WLAN: 802.11b/g Wireless LAN PC Card Slots: 1 x Express Card/54 USB 2 Video Ports 1 x VGA Audio Ports 1 x Microphone jack; 1 x Headphone jack Audio ADI1984HD High Definition CODEC; 24-bit DAC Speaker: Built-in stereo speakers Touchpad Yes Keyboard Standard Card Reader Secure Digital slot Battery 3-cell lithium ion ORIGINAL PRICE BREAKDOWN: 64GB solid state drive- $169 retail 2GB ram module- $30 retail Windows Vista Home Premium upgrade- $129 TOTAL: $700 retail plus tax!!!!!!!!!!! Now why not get it for way less!!?? Also! I am including an amazing reversible sock case. A $20 value! So whats included? Laptop Vista copy new solid state drive, and older original new ram module and older original slip case and all original box compartments and charging parts I can take out the new drive parts on request and install the older hardware inside. But the Vista OS stays on there, a fresh copy of course! Ill take $500 or best offer. Thanks!
  8. WTB: G5/Pro Case PreModded for Hackintosh

    Sorry about the quality, I didn't wanna put my SLR together and download RAW photos so I snapped em with my nokiae71. but you get whats there. if anyone is interested, name your price.
  9. WTB: G5/Pro Case PreModded for Hackintosh

    I have one, but it has the lower back bent handle issue. I am trying to sell if if anyone wants to make an offer. I tried to mod it, but the entire outside is intact, no cutting of ports or front or PCI slots or anything.

    Yeahhhhh, so I bought it thinking i'd use it but I don't. I opened it and then never plugged it in. Ill take $150 for it or some kind of good trade, im looking for a new GSM cell phone PM me! I have pictures if you want to see, the box it came in is actually really nice.
  11. VIA C7™-M Processor / w OSXx86 ?

    tried OSX86 with my HP 2133 mini-note unfortunatly its a no go. I would have loved to run OS X on this bad boy, but I guess ill be stuck with Vista for the time being.
  12. Asus P5E-VM Quad Core Hackintosh G4 Build.

    I got a small question. Whats the distance between your board and the metal? I mounted mine a little under 1/2 inch and the PCI cards won't go down into the slits, they stick out because I believe I mounted too high. I think I need to go down the 1/4th an inch, but clarification would be amazing. Also, does your case have issues closing? I feel like I am missing something small and simple. it closes but won't shut, like won't close fully. Its odd.
  13. Willing to pay someone to build me a power-button!

    1. Thanks harolc for the nice link, I was thinking about doing the 2nd bay of my Quicksilver case for a memory card reader and USB/FW ports seems kinda cool and no need for a real second optical drive, if I want blu-ray id get a combo burner anyway. 2. Thank you LukeSki, but I received my case actually and it didn't come with a board either, just the push in plastic so if anyone actually has any ideas on how to use my current regular PC power button to connect the plastic button of the front of the G4 case, it would really be that simple! PS: I am taking photos for everyone of progress, ill make a little reference post and post pictures day-by-day with my camera, there is no way I could personally write something out at the end... too add PS: mounting motherboard tomorrow, full atx anyone got any tips? it looks like im gonna have to chop off some of the foot on the back left when it folds the edge of my board meets it.
