Hey all, I am selling my laptop. It just sits all set up in my room. Barely used for things outside of watching DvD's. Roomie and I have a desktop, and it gets used most of the time

Some stats I do know....

Pentium 4 3.06( Dual Hyper Threading)
1GB Ram
80GB HD(Less than 1 month old)
Raedon 9000 Video Card
Dvd/CD-R

I cant remember the exact stats of the whole thing. (not entirely sure how to check it either) I Had it custom built over a year ago.

I recently lost my HD to some kind of failure. Lost all my information, so having 2 like new computers around the house is somewhat useless.
Only reason I was keeping it was for the fact it had all my stored info, documents, video clips, etc....

It also comes with an external fan(the base you put under it), external optical mouse, and a 3 piece speaker set.....

Originally bought for 2500$CAN......asking 1MillionWon.

not a great picture but will do Im sure


It has some tiny wear marks on left front corner of the console. Probably from my big mitt resting on it. Its a big screen. 15.4" I beleive.

What else can I say.....

Sorry, Like I said it was custom built. On the outside it says ECS, and Im guessing thats the name of the case. It was custom built by a company on EBAy, who were great

Hope that helps...if you can give me some pointers on how to drag out more info from my comp, woudl be appreciated

It would be useful to know the dimensions of the laptop as well as the weight. Screen size is important to alot of people, as is battery life.

Im not at home so I cant check exactly. But 15.4 inches sounds about right, on screen size. Battery life, well, Ive never really used it on battery, its really just been a portable desktop for me.

Its fairly heavy, Its not really good If you plan to lug it around all day.

It would be perfect for people who basically want a do it all, powerful processor. great for multi tasking, and video. I used it as my DVD player in my first place because the TV I had was terrible.

I also have a carry bag I will throw in. Over the shoulder style.

I would be somewhat interested but a million won is damn expensive for a used laptop, regardless of the specs. I've been looking around at what's available NEW in the 1200 - 1400 dollar range.....I don't think your computer is very tempting at that price.

Fair enough. One thing to keep in mind is mine is here and now, also, comes with speaker set, mouse, shoulder bag/carrying case and an external fan.

I havent priced laptops lately, so you would probably know better. Just that I dumped 200k into it about a month ago. But since I lost all my info, keepingit is a mute point.

I think it's a good deal, if you consider the specs. I don't even think they sell laptops this powerful in Korea. I got one about the same as this one - had it custom-built by HP last summer - and it cost about $1700....

You can say a million (or 900,000) is expensive, but try to find something comparable to it, with a brand name processor, video card, and 1GB of RAM.
