I landed on this
I have bought an laptop off ebay relly cheap. IMO it was a steal since all I had to pay was $48.98 ($28.99 plus $19.99 shipping) for it, and it is going to take about another $60 to fix it since the owner is going to pull the hard drive and memory out of it.
The laptop is a TOSHIBA TECRA 9100
SPECS: Intel Pentium 4 Mobile 1.8 GHz, no hard drive, no memory, 14.1 inch LCD, ect...
It seems like it will be a good machine, just gotta dig out the extra AC adapter that I have around here (That I got in an removal contract with the authorization to sell whatever I get from the closed building).
The memory I am going to get from a well known memory dealer here on the internet.
This laptop is going to my sister once I get it fixed and running. Hers broke on her and there are a lot of problems getting replacement parts for hers since the parts are not manuactured anymore. She has been trying to get me and my dad (He knows that I did this) to tell what we are hiding from her, but we keep her guessing since it is going to be a secret.
I forgot to mention, but I bought it on the 23rd of Febuary, and Paypal finally transfered the funds to the guys account on the 26th of Febuary.
I have had this idea, but any input is welcome on this as well. Once I get the machine running and running well, I was thinking about taking and putting it in a box, and putting that box within another box, and again within another box. The last box will have some weight to it since I have some concrete / wood around here that I can use to help add weight to throw her off guard.
Any other suggestions would be a welcome as well.
