An fast, moderate-sized and extraordinarily cheap drive.

Refurbished, but these seem to be in good shape. Don't expect the intel manufacturer's warranty to have much, if any, time left. You're leaning on newegg, and then perhaps your credit card's insurance policy, if it has one.

Whoops, I broke my HP 200LX.. I'll have to get it repaired before I can re-open this project.

NOTE TO SELF - Maybe try to get a 96 MB upgrade. What did I have?

An excellent video card, that can manage nearly-ultra settings for World of Warcraft.

Notable because it is very low power: It only uses motherboard power and no additional cable directly from the power supply.

  • Mine is specifically the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650
