    2 laptops for sale

    Both are nearly identical, Compaq presario v2000 series (v2615us)

    Bought as a lot of non working laptops, and I got 4 working ones out of them, keeping 2 for my kids selling the other two. I was able to upgrade them a bit, one to a 100 gig drive, the other to an 80 gig drive (up from 40 gigs) and upgraded the ram to 2 gigs (vs the 512 megs they had originally) Screens and keyboards are in great condition and the units have only a small amount of cosmetic wear. The 80 gig one has some orange nail polish on the left mouse button as we were going to use it to help our 2 year old which button to press, that would easily clean up with some nail polish remover, or it would just wear off over time.

    I've installed XP on them, but did not register it. you'll probably want to upgrade to at least vista, or 7 since XP is no longer supported, but they have XP keys. so that is what I used. They do run windows 7 just fine. They would make perfect gifts for younger kids who need internet access. They have built in wifi, and can handle light duty graphics. and the batteries do hold a charge of at least 30mins - hour. (I didn't fully test them, but they did work for a while off battery) I put educational games on them, and itunes and other apps that kids would probably want to run and they ran fine. Some old games like half life also ran OK, as well as older game system emulators (snes, ps1)

    They do not come with chargers, but you can buy chargers for under $20: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9SIA35P1JS6827

    Price is $60 for the 100 gig and $55 for the 80 gig. I'll knock of $5 each for somebody who wants to pay cash and not go through ebay.

    if somebody wants both I'll sell them for $100 together and include a charger. Perfect Christmas gift for a young student. I've installed windows 7 on them.

    Perfect gift for a person who needs an internet capable laptop, but isn't planning on running a lot of games.
