Got these for sale:


Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop

T7200 2Ghz Core 2 Duo processor

1920x1200 "Truelife" (aka glossy) display


100GB 7200RPM hard drive

nVidia GeForce 7950GTX Go 512MB Video chipset mod

Wireless b/g/n (Broadcom)

XP MCE SP2 restore disc (installed on request)

Vista Home Premium 32-bit upgrade DVD (never opened)

Beaten up but still usable laptop travel backpack


The display has a tiny speck of dark pixels in the corner, this does not affect usability; it came like that from Dell new and they gave me grief about returning it. The screen is otherwise clean and not super glossy so it's easy to look at. I did void the hell out of the warranty by replacing the (failed) 7900GS Go it came with, modding in the 7950GTX Go. It works perfect and I also provide the upgraded 130W power supply brick to make sure it runs happily.


Hackintosh will run on this with cpus=1, with basic sound output. The Broadcom wireless works natively, and the Broadcom 440x wired ethernet has kexts available in most distributions. Needless to say XP works fine on this also, and Vista x64 also has full driver support.


$1050 shipped or best offer.




2x1GB PC2-5300 straight out of Macbook Pro. Should work in any current DDR2-equipped laptop. $45 shipped.




I will *only* accept Paypal on these before shipping. If you live in the San Francisco Bay area I can take cash in person also.
