    ASUS G1S Like-new condition. There are absolutely no blemishes or scratches. The build quality is also superb - its not cheap-feeling and "creaky" like many laptops out there today. It's got a powerful video chip, so it will run any new game you can throw at it very well. Also included - ASUS backpack carrying case, wall charger, and recovery disks. It comes with Vista, although it has Ubunutu running on it as well which I had no problems with. Here are the specs:

    # Intel Core 2 Duo T7500, 2.2 GHz 4MB L2 Cache 800MHz FSB,
    # Santa Rosa Intel Mobile 965 PM Express Chipset + ICH8M
    # 2 GB RAM 667MHz (up to 4GB supported)
    # Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT, 256 MB onboard, 512 MB Turbo Cache DX 10 Capable HDCP support for DVI port
    # 160 GB HDD Seagate Momentus 7200.2, 7200 rpm SATA 300 (upgrade from 160 GB 5400rpm)
    # 15.4” WSXGA+ (1680x1050) ColorShine TFT-LCD Asus Splendid Video Intelligent Technology
    # 8X DVD Super Multi drive with LightScribe
    # Intel Integrated HD audio (Azalia), Bluetooth v2.0
    # Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 802.11 a/b/g/n
    # Ports:

    * 1 x Line-in jack

    * 1 x DVI-D port
    * 4 x USB 2.0 ports
    * 1 x IEEE 1394 port
    * 1 x RJ11 Modem jack for phone line
    * 1 x RJ45 LAN Jack for LAN insert
    * 1 x TV-out(S-Video)

    You can buy a brand new one with more memory and a larger HD for $600, I say it's worth $250-$300 with no scratches!
     
  4. Asking price was $900.00

    Ok more memory and larger HD, but what about other specs? Is this anything special?
    Thanks

    I would without any doubt go for a brand new one with all the warranties, not worth risking a business like trading for a couple of dollars... makes no sense at all! :cool:

    Good luck to all!
     
  7. I just picked up a new HP with 4 GB of RAM, 320 GB HD, Dual Intel Centrino, ATI Mobility and Vista Biz Premium for about $970.

    So for another $100 or so beyond the asking price of the used machine - you can get a pretty decent new laptop.

    If you can afford to wait - consider hanging out until after X-mas and see what the sales bring.

    Anyway, bottom line on the used laptop - Let it pass.

    Ok, it's worth $1000, does that make you feel better?

    Put it on eBay and please crawl back under your rock!

    Surdo, what the fuck is your problem on top of you can't read! I was looking at buying not selling.
    Thank you to all that responded in a normal fashion, as to Surdo's replies
    Go fuck yourself asshole!

    It's funny how Surdo deleted his post to me! I guess he realized what an ass he was! An apology was in order, but I guess he called under his own rock to hide! I bet he trades as reckless as he runs his mouth!

    :D :eek:
