FS: NEC Versa VXi laptop from the year 2000 / Reduced

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Sat Jan 21, 2017 11:59 am

I have a NEC Versa VXi laptop from the year 2000, which still has the original Windows 98SE COA on it.
This is a 14" machine with P III 600MHz CPU and 256MB RAM, and it has built-in HD, DVD and Floppy drives!
It currently has XP installed.
Details in the Userguide here: https://support.necam.com/download/200673-000low.pdf
Pictures here: http://imgur.com/a/6DGyT
Scroll down to see them all.

The machine is in a very nice condition for its age, and otherwise fully working.
No scratches, dead pixels, or pressure marks on the still bright XGA screen.
No battery, but it comes with a proper [Gateway] charger.
Asking $60.- / $50.- $40.- incl. shipping to CONUS. Price reduced

Payment via PayPal, using option "Send money to friends or family".
If option not available, please add 4.5% to cover PayPal fees.

It's a solid Oldie, that could certainly compete for quality and sturdiness with similar Thinkpads of that same period.
Apart from that, I'm preparing to move, so want to sell some unused items.

Does the machine have a SoundBlaster or Adlib compatible card?
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Checked that earlier to no avail.
