Check hinges / mouse pad / keyboard etc are ok.
Check paper work (i hope they send some) confirm warranty

Worth running Memtest / Malwarebytes or anything like that?

Cheers for the reply Neo - the laptop is a pretty good deal, just trying to go over all the aspects etc to make sure im not missing a trick / being retarded here. Also as a first time user of this sort of site, find my self a bit ''extra precausious'' so to speak.
I'd double check the specs, run a hardrive test, check CPU Temps, maybe run a stress test of some port (Even Prime95).

This is what mine looks like:

It isn't boxy like the older style Voyagers.

If you've ever seen a Dodge Caravan before, it's almost exactly the same. In fact, to some extent, the Dodge Caravan IS the same. It started as the Plymouth Voyager, then became the Chrysler Voyager in the United States (it was already being made in Europe, and was exactly like the US Plymouth Voyager.) The Chrysler Voyager is still produced today in the US, but it's changed drastically.

The 1995 model (Chrysler Voyager in Europe, Plymouth in the US. Exact same.) is the van I use at work.

Did some math today and found out my van averages about 25 MPG, which is awesome compared to other vehicles that size. It's a blast to drive - it likes to try and get away from you, even if you only give it a little gas.

My Computer: eMachines T5226 - Intel Pentium D Dual Core @ 3 GHz - Diamond Viper Radeon HD3870 OC Edition with 1 GB GDDR3 VRAM - 4 GB PQi Turbo DDR2-533 RAM - Corsair 650W PSU with 52A on single rail - TSSTcorp DVD-DL+-RW combo drive - Lite-on 52x CD-RW burner - Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi XtremeGamer - Logitech z5300e speakers - WinFast TV Tuner - Vista Ultimate 64-Bit. eBay name: Flightsimboy304
