Laptop being sold AS-IS, but everything does work and has been tested, and settings have been adjusted so it operates at peak performance.I also detailed the computer from top to bottom. The top of the laptop does have some scratches and only a couple minor blemishes on the plastic on the inside, due to the fact that it is an older machine, but you won't find one with upgrades like this, and you certainly won't find one with Windows 7 on it.
I originally bought this laptop for a friend who couldn't afford to buy a new one, but unfortunately the job she wanted it for fell through.I bought and installed the hard drive, the extra memory, andupgraded the CD-ROM Drive to a DVD/CD-RW Drive (I am including the original CD-ROM Drive because I have no use for it, and you could always keep it as a backup, they are easy to change out).I also upgraded the Operating System from Windows XP to Windows 7, 32-bit (which was the most expensive part), so I know all the hardware and software is compatible and works as it should.The WiFi works great too, as tested on my home laptop has all the latest Windows updates as of last weekend.I also installedKingsoft© Office 2013 (compatible with MS Office) and other software (Adobe products),a Free Anti-Virus program, a Windows 7 Recovery Disk,and theAC Adapter w/ power cord (suitable replacement for original).The battery does work but battery life is limited. If you plan on doing a lot of traveling with this laptop, I would recommend buying a new battery. Other than that, this laptop comes with everything you need to get started.I have activated Windows 7, but neither it nor the computer itself is registered to anyone, so it will truly be yours to far as ports, it has a Smart Card port (good for someone in the military or a DoD employee), microphone and headphone port, a 1394 port (an advanced USB type port). It has 3 standardUSB ports on it, an Ethernet port, a phone connection. It also has the ability to plug an external monitor to it (I plug mine into the TV for easier viewing). There are a couple other ports as well, a Serial and Parallel port, and an S Video connection. Also with this computer is an Infra Red sensor.
I have set it up so that the only thing you need to do, is plug it in and enjoy. You won't have to go through the whole process of setting it up, the computer is ready to go out of the box, but if you wish to take the time and register it to your name and personalize thesettings, you are free to do that too.
