    I have an old laptop that I got awhile back... Here are the specs on it...

    IBM Thinkpad R31
    Model 2656-3fu
    PIII-M 1.13GHz (512KB),
    128MB RAM,
    20.0GB HDD,
    13.3 XGA(1024x768) TFT LCD,
    8x4x24x CD-RW,
    802.11b wireless(MPCI),
    Modem(MPCI),
    Ethernet,
    TV out,
    Li-Ion battery,
    WinXP Home

    Now, I had upgraded it to XP Pro, but the HD puked... I THINK it still has the CDRW in it... Although it might have a DVD drive in it... I'll have to check later on... Pop in a new HD, install an OS and your good to go... Need cash, and this has been sitting around. Drop a $50 Hard Drive into it and you have yourself a $500 laptop for $275.

    How is the battery life? Where can I buy the new HDD from? I wasnt aware you could upgrade laptops like a desktop. Does it come with a power cable or anything?

    No trades...

    I'm trying to find the power supply for it. I know I can get one from work... They have spares...

    Depending if you were using the CD/DVD drive or not, and screen brightness, it would get anywhere from 2-3 1/2 hours on a charge... Unlike my new thinkpad G series, that is LUCKY to get 2 hours... But thats what I get for ordering a laptop with a desktop processor and three cooling fans... :(

    even if it was stolen it couldn't be traced in indiana LOL 275? and you are getting a power supply and all it needs is a new HD correct? you sure it doesn't need a new processor or motherboard?
