Ya should have opted for a Blu Ray drive option.   :D

Wow, that's not bad.

I wasn't talking about a Blu Ray burner.  I was talking about a Blu Ray combo drive for your laptop that would also burn dual layer DVDs and CDs.

A "rebuild" that turned out to use very few of the original parts.

The original machine
Quote
Dual Athlon 2100XP (modded to MP may update to 2600MP or 2800MP)
ASUS motherboard
512meg RAM PC 2100
40 GB Maxtor 80GB Maxtor  (has access to 2x120 gb on PC 1)
CD/RW
ASUS gForce Model ?? (very low video demand on system)
Sony Mutliscan 210GS 17"
Mitsumi keyboard
500 (?) Watt Antec PSU

The rebuilt machine:
Quote
CPU Intel Core2Duo E6600 2.4ghz
Motherboard P5B-E
600w PSU (antec I think)
Video Card - Asus EN 7100GS
NEC MultiSync FP1370 22" monitor (shared with my windows machine.)
2x 1GB DDR2 667mhz
500gb SATA HD
LG SATA DVD-RW

Mitsumi keyboard
Microsoft Optical trackball.
Thermaltake Swing ATX case mid tower.
LinuxMint 4.0 KDE community edition

The machine was supposed to use the original HD and DVD/CD drives but it turned out that the ATA HD controller is not "real" it is a chip that translates from the ATA drives to the SATA controller.  My Linux version did not yet support that chip so I had to replace the drives as well.  Except for the drives the parts had all been bought back in last July.  The rebuild was delayed due to not knowing when or if I was going to be laid off.  A couple of months ago I decided to finish the rebuild (the drives cost about $200) rather than waste the money already spent.  I just yesterday transferred my software and data to this machine.  It is doing quite nicely.

Just rebuilt this machine yet again (it died about a year ago):

AMD FX6300 -CPU gigabyte motherboard.  8 gb ram 850 watt Antec power supply.  1TB HD (old),  some type of old Radeon (forget the model).  And of course running Linux.  Not a power house but far better than not functioning.

It continues to use: LG SATA DVD-RW, Mitsumi keyboard, Microsoft Optical trackball, Thermaltake Swing ATX case mid tower. From the old machine

There is a 27" Acer wide screen monitor that is on a KVM switch with the keyboard and trackball shared with my windows machine also several years old.

Of course since I use this machine for playing my DVDs that I have backed up onto HD it has a lot of external HD capacity.

The com I have is a rebuild, so I did made a few change on it

Mother board:
CPU:
Ram: 4gig
HD One 500 Gig and one (from the old com 200 Gig divided in two)
Power supply :
Video card: 1 Gig
Win:7
Well if I could remember the command to get the spec I would do it, but I can't remember it.
