What an incredible deal! (Sarcastic)
Today, someone at my college tried to get me to buy his old laptop. He had a Compaq Presario 1245 with an AMD K6-2 processor, a whopping 32 MB of RAM, 3 gig Hard Drive, a floppy disc drive, and, if you can believe this, it had Windows 98 PRE-INSTALLED! And I could have it all for only $500. I mean, it was such an incredible deal that I was almost willing to ditch my MacBook completely for it.

I kinda felt like the judge in My Cousin Vinny because I wanted to ask, "Are you on drugs?"

Show these to your friend. I would say $50 tops. 2-3 years ago that very machine was going for $150 on ebay but that was 2-3 years ago!!!

Yeah some of those yoots today, I tell ya...

I really had a ball watching that movie. Just thinking about it makes me laugh.

Eekkk, those things are ugly :eek:

If he was willing to sell it for maybe 59 cents, I'd definitely buy it. With how much I write, paper weights are a blessing.

I was thinking the same thing. It's like when you see an ugly baby and have to be coy about it. Wow, what a handsome child...looks just like you! :D

Actually that was a decent machine for it's time. It's just a bit old and outdated. I like the looks of the older Thinkpads better than that Compaq, but it was an ok machine. Back then anyway.

buy it for a few bucks and convert it into an animated picture frame using the "my pictrues" screensaver. ;)

Compaq stands for "Computer... on craq", apparently your friend is too ;)

hey, just remembered. i've got a compaq ipaq mini-tower in cold storage - you can come and get for free. ;)

it is soooooooooo ugly!

I think it's a great deal- not much to pay for a daily reminder of how bad life could be. :)

I ran across a deal at Circuit City that haved a Dual core laptop, Gig a DDR2 and a 100 gig HD, 17' Display and a DVD burner for $699.99! So I would say he had a good price on that latop!
