Who Will Buy My 3.0ghz Laptop?

I want to sell an Alienware Area51-m 766 laptop. because i need a machine that's easier to carry about and uses less power. This monster uses a desktop processor and thus, runs hot. Apart from this, it's a great machine - used as a desktop replacement. I used to play GTA3 with it ( it was awesome) but i don't have time anymore. Please anybody interested, name a price. Very negotiable. I am thinking of N75,000.

Specs:

[list]

[li]Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 3.0GHz 800MHz FSB w/ 512KB Cache[/li]

[li]Advanced 800MHz FSB 512KB Advanced Transfer[/li]

[li]Built-In Wireless 802.11a+b Mini-PCI Card[/li]

[li]Exclusive Magnesium Alloy Saucer Silver Chassis[/li]

[li]15.4" WSXGA+ TFT Active Matrix LCD[/li]

@ Gridlock

I just came across this thread today.

I would like to know if you still have the system

No, I've not. Trying to preserve funds for the expensive movie-making I'm going into.

How easy will it be to expand the ram to 1gb? About how much will that cost?

Yes, the recovery CD and the drivers CD.

Hmmm. So it's essentially a desktop in the form of a laptop. It may still be worth it, though, since its relatively low power consumption will make one's inverter last longer on a full charge. Do you have the original OS disk?

The battery is out. I mean, it doesnt last more than a few seconds, cos the machine itself is like 2 yrs old.

Looks like a good system for video editing.

How long does it last on a full battery when NEPA strikes?

@PeeDaVinci: You can [email=mail@phlameworks.com]email me[/email], or you can call/text 08059252406.

@Seun: the spring on which that particular key sits on is broken, that's why it's loose. The Keyboard layout is similar to Toshiba's so i guess a part replacement can be made for it. Alienware Tech support would have been the best place to go for a fix, but they require my original product ID/serial number which i dont have anymore.

You may be able to get a replacement keyboard on eBay for like $15 or $20

Actually, I'm a little bit interested, but I want to know what one can do to that loose key.
