Default Old Laptop FoC

Anyone want this before it gets recycled?

Complete with power supply. Perfect working order but no OS as I promised the owner that Iíd wipe the HDD (using Killdisk) after transferring her data to her new machine.

Absolutely free if you collect from Didcot or Eynsham, or will post by Evri at cost.

Yes, I know itís old, but I thought I should ask first.

Nick.

Hi Nick.
How much for post to Kilmarnock Ayrshire Scotland?
Have an SSD spare and more memory for one of these, will run Linux Mint fine.

Certainly a perfectly usable system if you put Linux on it, even without an SSD.

Hi.
Any update on this? A PM sent to the OP has also not been replied to.

Nick hasn't gone away, he's accessing the forum now. He may have been surprised by the unexpected interest and is thinking about the postage options. As with all 'offered' threads, it's for the OP to decide how s/he wants to proceed.

Possibly he's hoping to get a response from someone who can collect. I can't say I blame him given that it's FOC.

No, consider it yours, Trevor. I just wanted to get a postage quote before replying and life is busy (3 kids, a stressful full time job, a house to renovate etc, you get the picture!). I boxed it up yesterday and will weigh it etc. when I get a second between patients. Cheers, Nick

PS really glad itís being saved!

Thanks Nick
Once you have the price etc I'll get you paid immediately.
Honestly I didn't realise you were so tied up with things.
Please accept my apology.
