    Default 10$ = Two laptops; AWESOME

    I bought a laptop from someone for 10$, the guy didn't know what was wrong with it, other than it wouldn't turn on anymore.

    It didn't have a charger or battery, but it had everything else. He had also taken it apart for no real reason, so it was handed to me in pieces.

    Well, I go see a bud of mine to smoke a few bowls and what not since my tax returns just came back and I had some money to blow. He sees the laptop in the back of my truck and is all like "man, you know you want to give me that DDR2" (laptop I bought for 10$ had 4gb of DDR2 in it), so I'm like "lets see if it works for your computer first and whathasyou". So we go do that.

    Then while were doing that and shit, he's mentioning a laptop he got from a pal for free, because busted LCD and no charger. I'm like "I'll give you this DDR2 for that laptop", and he's all like "well, you just got me about 80$ of DDR2, go ahead and take it man".

    I had a charger for both laptops stored away in my attic, got the one with a busted LCD hooked up to external monitor and running Crunchbang Linux, other one doesn't look like it's going to get far, so I'll probably just use it for parts.

    A new monitor for this laptop costs about 48$, so it's not too bad since it did come with a battery and 2gb DDR3.

    eMachines E528 = Working laptop
    HP Pavilion dv6 = Laptop I paid 10$ for, parts laptop

    Overall nice. I came across a deal like this before, but I declined it since mine is an HP.

    That's probably why it's broken and doesn't want to work.

    At least the eMachines works well, I get pretty good FPS when playing games under Linux.
