    I know nothing about these.
    I take it will print to a USB printer or network printer?
    What's the cpu? Speed?
    I found the cpu info: 200MHZ
    Looking to trade for anything?

    Mark,
    I'm not sure if it's sold,
    I'm still very interested in it.
    I still have not received a reply from Jeffrey
    with answers to my questions.
    Although it's only been a few hours, and it is a weekend.
    I'm sure he will get back to the thread.

    Jeffrey,
    Thanks for the reply (answers)
    To let all know, I will be passing on this purchase.
    We found a nice 1000MHz laptop today,
    Maybe I should have stayed home and saved the cash.
    Jerry
