I have a lightweight GNU/Linux distro (antiX) installed on my Pentiumii@333MHz w/ 320MB ram. I can still surf the net, compose emails, and create documents with OpenOffice.Org The machine is tough with a large 15" display. Still going strong with what is technically thought of as a museum piece of equipment. I would suggest older equipment for casual users. No need to spend money on the newest "shiny thing."

I have owned a Dell Inspiron 7000 for 11 years. Yes, that's right. The 3 year warranty was useful, as the board fried and was replaced. But I used it everyday, very intensely, for over 11 years! I have a new laptop now, but use it to run an old printer and hardware that Windoze 7 won't run.
But this was a solid machine. I bet a new hardrive, and it could run for more years yet. So it was well built.
But it cost almost 5 grand when it came out!! (read more)

This is a very slow computer with very little ram and a poor quality prosesser. If I were you I would get rid of this scrap pile and buy a desktop. Did I like it....... no!!!
I would reccomed to someone that need a cheap computr for non-web use but who doesnt use the web.
One really great thing about this heavy computer is the hard drive space. the hard drives on these machiends are one of a kind for a computer uild for windows 97. Windows 7 punks dont go out trying this one.

Dell Inspiron 7000 very resistent to really hard conditions the plastics where this computer was made protects very well all the parts including the monitor (flat screen). works good the problem too old. for new systems. The new computers are so fragile than can resist a simple crash. (read more)

Extra battery slot a plus for those long hauls. Installed 256Mb of RAM and Windows XP on a 7000 from the Salvation Army and the thing ran beautifully. Even the DVD's ran without glitches Not bad for a PII. Well recommend the Dell Inspiron 7000. (read more)

I have had my 7000 for 3 years now, and although I have a newer machine I can't See myself getting rid of the Dell. It has lasted extremely well, despite several knocks, and has been far more reliable than my others. As can be expected considering its age, this machine is quite heavy; I tend to use it instead of a desktop.
The battery life on this machine is astounding. I don't know exactly how old it is now, but considering it was secondhand and ageing when I got it, must be ancient in... (read more)

I needed something I could store at work that I wouldn't worry about being stolen from my locker. I bought this one at at thrift store for $50. I just need it as a word processor to do reports. What I like is how many ports it has: USB, Cardbus slot, printer, and I think as many that exist. It has both a floppy and DVD drive (if you upgrade). I'm going to install a larger hard drive and upgrade it all around. (read more)

Ok so I was given this laptop as a way of keeping me at a job. Now I have built all my computers except my very first one way back in 94 and I laughed when I checked the stats on this machine. Pentium 2 366 mhz, 4mb video card, 56k fax modem and 64mb memory, 24x cdrom and a 3.5 floppy drive and Windows 98 (I was happy for that see above statement). When it was given to me I said why not as I needed something to amuse me at this job. Over time and lots of research I was able to upgrade the... (read more)

Well I'll start off on how I got my DELL Inspiron 7000. I was working in a building and they had a dumpster just full of laptops and other computers, and this one was sitting right on top of all of them. so, I grabbed it and looked it over, it looked to be in mint condition, plus this was just 3 months ago, so the computer is all of 6 years old now, and it was still in great shape. The only thing wrong was it had no hard drive or caddy/connector. when I got home, I went on Dell's website and... (read more)
