Free Fujitsu Lifebook B-2130

Fujitsu Lifebook B-2130

The Good:
FREE TO WHOEVER COLLECTS IT :)

Case condition fair for her age, well travelled but not abused, keyboard still has a good feel. Designed for Win98 it spent some time with WinXP+Vodaphone Internet dongle and currently has Lucid Puppy Linux installed. With only a 400MHZ processor and 128MB of ram demanding applications such as video playback suck but mother has had great fun with it typing her book and discovering the internet. The only complaint she had was that the webcams hidden behind her net curtains didn't update fast enough. Other than that it all works including the touch screen.

The Bad:
Main LIPO Battery pack  not holding a charge
Internal CMOS battery not holding charge
Plastic stylus is missing
Screen has One dead pixel

The Ugly:
NO CD drive
WILL NOT boot from USB (it's a Bios thing not fault)  but does support PXE boot over LAN
It's in Carmarthen [Wales,UK] and weighs about 1.5kilo with charger/power supply pack.
