Inspiron 5100 Cheap Used Laptops

The specifications of the Inspiron 5100 used laptops include a Pentium 4 processor usually in the 2.4GHz range. This was not the fastest processor at the time of the release of this laptop but it did help to keep the price reasonable with all of the other features which were typically found on this model. Being a 15 inch laptop the weight is a bit more than what you would find on a 14 inch model though. The extra screen size is actually a plus from a viewing standpoint and the Inspiron 5100 actually provided an S-Video output as well hence the focus on multimedia.

For sound there are the standard built-in speakers and 3.5mm audio out as well for external speakers or headphone use on the laptop. The wireless capabilities include 802.11b and there is the standard Ethernet and modem which round out the network and Internet connectivity options.

Dell D610 Laptops For Under 200

Among the various cheap laptops under 200 dollars we see each day are some great standards like the Dell D610 Latitude model.

D610 Laptops Under $200

This laptop provides the user with an Intel Pentium M processor typically in the 1.8GHz range depending on the original configuration. This particular incarnation of the Pentium M uses a 2MB L2 cache with a 533MHz bus. This was at one time an impressive specification yet obviously these days this would be considered quite slow compared to the much faster dual and quad core processors found in laptops.

The older cheap laptops under 200 today do provide people the opportunity to own examples of what used to be quite cutting edge in the world of portable computing. Just because these are not as fast as the new models does not mean that they are not reliable and quick. They can provide a solid basis for normal computing tasks just as they were designed to do. The Latitude D610 laptop which often sells for under $200 typically comes with one or two gigs of RAM and the maximum memory is 2GB to be placed in the two SODIMM slots. Obviously this configuration would equate to two 1GB sticks of memory to max out the RAM.

Among the standard features found in the D610 is an S-Video TV out port, USB, serial port and parallel port. Yes, this is an older laptop as you really don’t see specs like this on newer models but you will frequently find this on the laptops under $200 however.

The diagonal screen size is 14.1 inches. The SXGA display is capable of delivering 1400 x 1050 at 262,000 colors. This model also came with an internal Mini PCI Wi-Fi card and optional Bluetooth wireless capabilities.

One interesting note about the D610 is that they have both integrated and discrete video options. Back when this laptop was first release it would have appealed to those looking for a fast, reliable business class laptop computer with an emphasis on producing quality video in a variety of situations. These days these are basically great laptops for under $200 which still happens to be able to provide people with a solid cheap laptop option.

Samsung Refurbished Laptops Review

We originally reviewed and tested a blue Samsung NC10-14GB netbook computer with Windows XP Home Edition installed as the operating system. This model can now quite often be found for sale in the refurbished laptops under 300 selections. Netbook computers are also known as mini laptops. This model has a nice sized 160 GB hard drive, a 10.2" LCD running at a 1024x600 resolution, and is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU. The speed and responsiveness of this mini laptop is on par with the other netbook computers we have reviewed such as the Acer Aspire One and the Asus EEE PC.

If you are looking at buying one of the Samsung netbooks, or a mini laptop made by any other manufacturer, we highly recommend getting the 6 cell battery version if you plan on being away from AC power for more than a couple of hours.

SAMSUNG NC10-14GB Atom additional specs:

  • Three USB 2.0 ports
  • VGA out port
  • Headphone out port
  • WLAN built-in 802.11b/g WLAN card
  • Bluetooth
  • 3-in-1 card reader

This model has been around for several years now and was offered in various configurations including 1GB to 2GB of RAM (system memory), as it is designed to take a max of 2GB.

Usually you can find an 80GB hard drive with Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition updated with Service Pack 3 fully installed along with any additional software packages which may be included on the auction laptop which are often refurbished laptops with warranties.

Full burning capabilities in the form of a CDRW / DVD combination optical drive is very common on the typical Dell used laptop computer.

For watching DVD movies on these 200 dollar laptops the 14.1 inch TFT display which offers a maximum 1400 x 1050 resolution is decent. The ATI Radeon 9000 integrated video with 32MB of video RAM offers quite sufficient graphic power designed to play basic games and provide bright, life-like video while watching DVD movies.

The Dell Inspiron 600M includes such practical features as 2 USB ports, integrated Ethernet 10/100 LAN port, microphone and headphone jacks, S-Video port, 15-pin standard VGA connector, PCMCIA Type I/II/III slot, 56K modem, Lithium-Ion battery, and much more. It may be a basic model but when all you need is the basics you wind up saving money because you are not paying for additional features you do not need.

The Dell Inspiron 600m was originally marketed as a thin, lightweight laptop as it weighs in at only 5.2 lbs. making it very easy to carry around while traveling. With a screen which is large enough to watch movies and a keyboard large enough to provide a comfortable typing experience this used 200 dollar laptop may be a bit basic compared to some of the more expensive models but it has proven to be very reliable and can be bought for a low discount laptop price.

Dell 1737 Laptop Review

The refurbished Dell 1737 Studio 17 notebook computer is a powerful laptop designed around the Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor which runs in the 2.0GHz range. This is a very popular processor and when combined with the maximum 4.0GB of DDR2 SDRAM contained within the 1737 it makes for a pleasantly fast as well as responsive laptop computer.

The display size is a standard 17 inches and uses the WXGA Widescreen Display with a native resolution of 1440 x 900, a decent size for watching DVD movies on your laptop. The overall quality of the display is acceptably bright and clear.

Originally with Windows Vista Home Premium operating system fully loaded on the 320GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive, the computer is capable of holding quite a bit of data such as your movies, pictures as well as other various files. However, if you were to ever run out of space you could simply add an external hard drive via any of the available USB ports.

One of the really nice multimedia features of the Dell 1737 laptop is the Blu-Ray ROM and 8x DVD+/-RW drive with Double Layer Support for all of the latest Blu-Ray movies and an ultra large amount of data backups as well. We occasionally display these refurbished laptops under 500 dollars yet they remain typically more than that even refurbished due to their original retail values.

Today everyone basically needs wireless networking capabilities in their laptops and the Dell 1737 laptop provides an 802.11a/g/n WLAN wireless card as an upgrade feature. This means that you can connect to hotspots at cafes, libraries, University campuses, campgrounds, or basically anywhere else which provides a wireless hotspot.

Additional basic multimedia features include an integrated microphone, web cam, and 7-in-1 Digital Media Reader all housed within a rugged yet lightweight silver and red colored laptop case.
