  • Inspiron 9300 for sale

    Micr0c0sm sold this to me 2 months ago for cheap because of the condition it was in, and I have since refurbed it (the intent all along was to upgrade the crap out of it and sell it on ebay... these go for 800 to 1000 because they are such great modders.)

    anyway, here are the specs:

    1600 Pentium-M 533FSB 2meg cache
    ..........(the computer can EASILY be upgraded to a 2.26, or for 25-30 bucks, a 1500 P-m 400fsb 2meg cache can be had on ebay and then pinmodded to a 2.0 - I will throw in a 1.5 1 meg cache for 15 extra if you want it.. I just got it in and have not tried to OC it yet, I verified that it DOES work in the laptop at stock speed though.)
    1024 meg DDR2 667Mhz
    ..........(I will gladly upgrade this to 2048 meg for 50 extra)
    80gig hdd
    ..........(unfortunately, this is only 4200 rpm - the thing that holds the Vista score to a 3.4 - I will upgrade this to a 60gig 7200 rpm drive for 50 extra)
    256meg GeForce 6800 go
    ..........(this is the top of the line for this laptop, though an easy bios mod will allow it to take up to a 7900gtx... the needed heatsink is already on the computer)
    17" 1920x1200 WUXGA LCD
    .........(what can I say... this is actually where the only problem is... if you can call it that. The inverter on the new LCD I bought was bad, so I had to take the one off the old LCD, and now the brightness adjustments are reversed... FN+up makes it dimmer, FN+down makes it brighter... still works great though.
    Sony 8x DVD +/-RW drive
    battery is a 9cell (high end) that still holds 2+ hr charge
    bluetooth cable already installed. a Dell truemobile 355 is 20.00 on ebay, I can put one in there for you for that.
    It currently does not have a COA, but I can put a XP Pro retail or XP home Dell OEM, COA on the chassis. I currently have vista Ultimate OEM installed.

    I am asking 600.00 for it as is, but you can pick and choose upgrades if you like. Here is my investment:

    175 Micr0c0sm
    225 WUXGA LCD
    25 1.5 P-m 400fsb
    125 new plastics (LCD back and front bezels, bottom bezels, palmrest bezels)
    25 new keyboard
    30 new 90w AC adapter

    total investment w/o cpu = 580
    with a 20 s/h charge, you can see I am breaking even.

    if you have any questions or want a picture or three, pm me.

    ADDITION!!!

    I will throw in a second A/C Adapter and upgrade to overnight shipping for free!!!

    600.00 (plus whatever upgrades you want) hopefully sounds a little sweeter...)

      Does it have SATA hard drive, or IDE?

      What's the max RAM it can take, 2gb or 4gb?

      Will it play BF2 at all as it is?

          ide drive.
          2 gig is the max.
          it should play bf2 quite nicely... but would be a screamer with mem and hdd upgrades.

          though unfortunately my wife told me if i sold it for less than 700, i would be single....

          adding the mem and hdd upgrades does make it a good deal though, as a hdd is 75 and the mem is 125.

              yeah, but you wouldn't recognize it anymore, micr0c0sm. I still need to send you some pics of the thing.
