    so basically I need a new laptop because some of my keys stopped working and the pc is just dying out so I found a cheap laptop with winxp that costs $65 heres an exact quote with the specs



    ACCEPTABLE BECAUSE 1 OF THE USB PORTS IS INOPERABLE OTHERWISE GOOD WITH A SMALL CRACK ON THE FRONT PLASTIC CASING. MANY DIFFERENT SPECS ON THIS PAGE. THIS LAPTOP HAS THESE EXACT SPECS: WINDOWS XP 32 BIT OPERATING SYSTEM, 2 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, DVD-ROM/CDRW DRIVE, INTEL CORE 2 DUO CPU T5870 @ 2.00 GHZ.

    Spec wise, it looks like it'd be a decent machine. It has my XP machine beat for sure (I'm running a Pentium 4).

    My biggest concerns would be the bad USB port and crack in the plastic. Might be able to find a similar machine in better shape without spending much more.

    Jesus Christ!

    If you look at my attachment you see my specs. All you really need is a 40gb hard drive. 1ghz speed is fine. Even 700mhz speed is fine. However below that it starts to get really slow. A USB port is really important. Don't do without it. These days XP are getting to be more classic!

    So, did you buy either of these?

    If so, is it turning out to be satisfactory?

    Nah, people quickly bought them, though, I fixed the keyboard problem, and I found an xp install disk in a drawer, then I installed it on my pc. Though,the pc died months later.
    It wasn't very durable but it did survive about 4 years.
    Using a different pc now, doesn't support xp though.
