Great Laptop for a Great Price!

I have my laptop for sale, since I have bought a new desktop. This laptop is slightly over 1 year old, and has suited me perfectly with all my tasks. I basically used this school work, and occasional computer gaming. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 9300 with the gray and white exterior. This is not your normal run of the mill Inspiron 9300 though. This is the top of the line Inspiron with the same specifications as a Dell XPS laptop, without all the fancy lights and aluminum case. Below I have listed the specifications for the computer…

·Legitimate copy of Windows XP Pro with Media Center
·2.0 GHz Pentium M processor, 2mb cache, 533FSB processor
·2.0 gb of Crucial Ram (will include the 1.0 gb of dell branded oem ram)
·100gb 5400rpm SATA hard drive
·Nvidia Gefore 6800 Go 256mb graphics card
·17inch WXGA 1440x900 LCD display
·24x DVD-R/RW drive
·13in1 SD card reader, and expansion slot
·OEM Bluetooth Module
·6 available USB ports (2 in front, 4 in rear)

This will have the OEM restoration CD, and the Windows Key is still clearly placed on the bottom of the laptop. The battery life is decent. I will see a minimum of 90-120 minutes on all high settings, and 120-180 minutes on moderate to low settings. The computer just received a brand new reformat on 03/30/2008. This was completed properly by deleting the current partition and reinstalling the operating system and completing all required updates and drivers. I have removed all temporary software from the unit leaving this with the essentials to start your new computer off right. The programs installs at the moment are as follows…

·Internet Explorer
·Active Flash Controller
·Windows Live OneCare (pending activation with your current email address)
·Windows Media Center

I have properly maintained this computer to the fullest extent over the duration of the 14 months I have owned this machine. This has never once needed a repair, or call into Dell. This computer runs quiet under heavy loads, and has never seen a “blue screen of death”. I did do some slight gaming with this laptop and I can attest that this is one solid laptop. I upgraded the ram to compete with the desktops with FPS and performance. I only played 2 games on this computer but both ran flawlessly on high settings. I used to play the game Counterstrike: Source on all high settings, and still obtained 80-100 FPS and I played Call of Duty 4, and never noticed the graphics skipping.

Cosmetically this product would be rated a 9.0 out of 10. Since this was transported to school almost every day, so it does show slight wear on the exterior of the case. Nothing unsightly to the extent that you would have to cover it up, but it does show slight wear. The mouse pad still gives great response, and the left/right buttons are quick to the touch. All onboard LEDs are still bright and function properly. I also have replaced the keyboard, due to slight wear shown on the keys. In addition, I had the battery replaced within the last 6 months which gives this computer great battery life for such a big machine. This sale also includes the OEM power brick and cable to the outlet.

Since I am finished school I will no longer need this, because I have purchased a multimedia Desktop. So this will be my loss, and your gain. I have provided many pictures of this laptop, including actual screenshots of the display to portrait the exact features and benefits. The links for the onscreen shots are below… (Screen size is 1440x900, but photobucket resizes them to 800x600)

·Device Manager (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84...e/d6c92a40.jpg)

I have also taken every exterior shot that I could think of to portrait the well maintained exterior. I have provided numerous shots below…

·Open Flat (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84...e/0510ec9d.jpg)

Accessories included
·Restore CD (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84...e/ac2c0636.jpg)
·Power Brick (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84...e/47158693.jpg)
·Dell Ram (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84...e/1087ab18.jpg)

I would like to sell this local but I can provide shipping to the 48 states only through USPS Priority. I will charge 20 dollars additional to ship the product, in foam peanuts in a moderate sized box.

Asking price is 650.00 or best offer. I feel that this is a fair price due to the price tag of 2200 last year. I am PayPal verified, and if choosing to pay with PayPal, I can provide my PayPal account info at that time, but I will only ship to verified addresses. I will also not ship until the payment has cleared to my account. So please be patient until it posts. But once it posts, I will have it in the mail right away. If you have any additional questions feel free to email me; [email protected]. I have numerous vouches on many forums, and I have an excellent ebay account status. Thanks for your time!

Re: Great Laptop for a Great Price!

Yes my apologies for not listing it... It does have a built in wireless card. The card is actually stronger than the pci-e one, I have in my desktop.

Re: Great Laptop for a Great Price!

I'd say the laptop is more like 3 years old, based on that set up, especially the proc and vid card, but still $650 is decent, it will most likely beat out any current laptop for the same price.
Good luck with the sale man

Re: Great Laptop for a Great Price!

They offered the E1705 in the end January of 2006, but that did not replace the 9300 at that point. I actually bought this from a Dell Authorized Dealer Mid January 2007. I bought it there due to them offering free warranties instead of buying additional through dell. Maybe the reasoning was due to the fact that it was overstock... but i am not sure the specifics why. This was still totally brand new with the plastic overlays on the computer at time of purchase. I would be more than happy to provide any more information needed. I will even look for the receipt if I can uncover it.
