A friend has asked me to find a cheap but reliable laptop for a bargain price so I come asking here. Prefer a proper mobile CPU as opposed to an atom or E-series. Dual core 2Ghz + if possible (not lower than 1.7Ghz solid floor). GPU: unimportant, provided it can display an HD stream without stuttering (GMA 4500 or similar) 2GB Ram minimum Hdd: 100GB + only Servicable Battery required(1.5hrs or so) No OS required. Light cosmetic damage is acceptable. wear marks and scuffs are fine, no cracks, splits or large chips Ironically I just sold two such laptops recently (http://www.avforums.com/forums/archived-complete-expired-adverts/1716289-sale-two-cheap-laptops.html), but now I am looking for similar systems. If you do not match any of the criteria above, please don't bother posting as I am rigid with these specifics. For a really good match I may move slightly on budget, but not more than 10-15% Cash waiting for suitable match.
