Non BX But a big want

Post by sleepy0905 » Tue Dec 19, 2006 8:25 pm

I dont suppose anyone has an old laptop laying around they no longer use or want doesnt have to be anything fancy it is only for the missus to play games on at night when she cannot sleep. :)
I know this may be a bit cheeky :wink: but all the old laptops on ebay go for stupid money.

We have two desktops going but they may be too big for the lap!! As ludicrous as it sounds, Dell do one for £350 - not sure how good it would be for gaming tho - depends on what games she wants to play I suppose but thats cheap for a brand new laptop! Have you tried something called freecycle?

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
