Default Nice find at a thrift store

A Compaq Presario computer for $5.

Old yeah but the Dual Layer DVD burner and card readers are what got my attention.

As you can see this thing is dusty as hell. It probably still work, who knows.

Specs are: AMD64 3700+ CPU, 250 G HD, 2x512 MB Memory, Dual Layer DVD Writer and integrated crap.

Thank you for the offer, but when I end my posts with /s, it denotes that any preceding statements were meant to be taken as sarcasm. Perhaps I should start using the more clear </sarcasm>, or even an irony punctuation (⸮).

This means sarcasm too ->

Anyway I don't care about the key. You wanna use it, use it.

Who needs an actual serial number nowadays?

Nice find, though. It would make a decent home server rather easily. Do you have any DDR to pop into it (I assume it is a s754 or s939)?

It's an MSI s939 and DDR.

It'll make a great Ubuntu box but I need a hard drive.

No, I'm not parting out my i3 box.
