Dell C640 Wireless laptop, refurbished and upgraded. I have refurbished a few of these, this is the last one.
The Service Tag is 2F3WS0J and the original specification can be viewed here: http://www.dell.com/support/home/uk/en/ukdhs1?c=uk&l=en&s=dhs
Here is a C640 buying guide: http://reviews.ebay.com/Dell-Latitude-C640?ugid=10000000008243892
Bios updated to the final A10 version.
2.4Ghz processor fitted, with thermal paste added as per buying guide. This is almost the fastest version of the P4-M processor, only beaten by the 2.5 and 2.6 versions, and helps speed it up nicely.
1GB ram (The C640 can take a maximum of 2GB)
Original 20GB 4200rpm hard drive replaced with a larger, and speedier 60GB 7200rpm drive.
The single slow usb 1.1 port has been supplemented with a PC card featuring 2 faster usb 2.0 ports. (Pictured)
Fitted with a Broadcom 802.11G WiFi card.
24 x CD-Rom optical drive.
RS232 serial port.
The track pointer, the tiny joystick device in the middle of the keyboard, has been permanently disabled. I don't know anyone who uses them and they are the cause of the mouse drift which can affect these machines. The mouse pad and all other functions are unaffected.
The battery does hold charge, but for any extended mains free operation a replacement would be required.
AC power supply is included.
Windows XP SP3 has been loaded, and all Microsoft updates and required device drivers have been installed.
Software loaded includes Open Office, VLC Media player, Adobe Reader and Panda Cloud Antivirus. The 18kfangui fan utility program has also been installed, this gives the user control over the computer's cooling fan to prevent overheating as mentioned in the buying guide.
Has a few minor marks here and there, but overall it's in very nice condition. Feels better made, with nicer plastics than many more modern machines.
Postage costs is to UK mainland only. Collection is welcome.
