I have a compulsory habit of breaking hardware. Luckily, sometimes, I
don't break the whole device, but only parts of it. Unfortunately, this
means there's lots of stuff lying around my floor, desk, etc.
Now here's the cool part: you can come and get those parts! (However,
some pieces aren't obsolete enough so you'll have to pay for them).
Some things I just found:
If you're interested in buying one or more of these parts, please contact me.
All prices are negotiable, btw.
- A broken laptop: a Compaq Armada E500*/?>
It broke while I was at HAL 2001.
This laptop misses several critical parts: its hard drive is being used in
antoher machine, the battery has died, its floppy and cd-rom drives and
memory are for sale and something whicked happened to the power supply thing
What it does have, however, is a working CPU (P2 mobile 400 MHz), the upper
part of the body is still OK and working, and, most importantly, the display
is totally super.
This thing will not be sold in pieces, but you can become the owner for NLG
450, or EUR 200.
Compaq Part numbers of the working parts: FIXME
- Another broken laptop, this time it's an IBM Thinkpad ???.
I don't know why this thing broke down, but it has while I was preparing for
HAL 2001, which was a very cool event,
apart from the laptop breakdowns.
Parts which you can reuse: the display, CPU-board (Mobile Celeron 333 if I'm
not mistaken), and the floppy/CD-drive, housing, etc.
All this can be yours for EUR 150.
IBM Part numbers of the working parts: FIXME
- Floppy drive for Compaq Armada E500 and other models? (Slightly damaged,
still works); replacement part number: 159538-001
- A dysfunctional Palm Pilot*/?>
This Palm Pilot is a golden oldie, it's the original 3Com Palm III. There's
something wrong with the connection between the memory card and the main
pcb, it needs to be bent to function. However, all parts are still fully
functional, so if you are looking for spare parts for your old Palm, please
buy it for only NLG 45 / EUR 20.
