As most of you don't know, I work with computers. I am also a certified workaholic which is why most people haven't met me. I do 50+ hours at my main job and then I do a lot of side work. This gives me access to computers people are getting rid of or don't need anymore. But I also buy/sell my own stuff. So it's that time of year where I need to clean house.

MSI GT70 – One of the best there is.

does any of your cheap laptops have cd/dvd burner?


Also, is there a way to change out a motherboard in a laptop?

Yes, the Dell Latitude has a CD/RW-DVD/RW. But it doesn't have any software on there to burn, you would have to get a Rixio or equivalent program on there.

Windows media player burns, doesn't it?

And that msi laptop sounds awesome. If I was in the market I'd hop all over it.

Kinda in the market for a dedicated tuning/datalogging laptop... Got anything cheap, that can handle getting kicked around in a car, yet has somewhat decent battery life?

First, I need to know what connection you need to datalog because COM ports on a laptop are hard to come by these days.

If you an do it with a USB, I would say the Lenovo would be a good choice. It is very small and lightweight. The battery is OK, but a radioshack inverter would fix that;

USB, correct. Only item I ever use with a Serial is done with a Serial to USB cable.

I'll keep an eye on this. I'll be back from NC in a week, so I should be in the market then. Also keep me in mind if you get your hands on anything else, as well.

How's the battery on the Dell Latitude D620? I have the same one but the battery doesn't last longer than 10 min. Can you get me a replacement? Thanks

Sorry, I don't have any replacement batteries at this time.

Free bump for some great prices! I'm in the market for a higher end replacement for my old hp dv9000 that barely runs anymore. I'll be contacting you in the coming weeks to hopefully make a purchase.
Quick question, is the Blu ray drive on the MSI a burner or just a reader?

He posted a review of the laptop under the pictures, and in the review it says it's a burner. Of course, it could have been replaced at some point, but theres a high likelyhood that it's a burner.

I wanna get a cheap one just for school and to check my email. Hopefully my next check I can afford it. This check wasnt a good one. I'd make an offer but I don't wanna sound like a lowballer on something already cheap.

Price is negotiable on everything. Worse I will say is no, or I might pull a Will Smith on you.

Aw, hell no.

Would you consider a partial trade on that G73?

I have a gateway 4300 series tower with a pair of flat screens, quad core, 1TB, 8gig memory, windows 7 64 bit.

Was $600 new, I've since upgraded the power supply (800 watt corsair IIRC), and a real video card (forgotten the model, its a sub $100 card now-a-days).

Moving to a smaller place and want to get into a more burley laptop instead of the tower.

Also have a sizable fishtank and nice treadmill that I'd barter with if you have no need for a desktop to flip :).
