        Ian, how about "#trublk" :-)

        okay, the long/short of it is that i spent last night anf this
        morning asking several .com places that sold used TP's if 

        1) they would sell me the laptop without Windose and credit me.
        2) they had an uniprocs >= 2.2 and <= 3.0
        3) they would do upgrade or
        4) provide me with the upgrade into.

        I found some dual-core that were like 1.7GHz- 2.2GHz.  sound

        several had large ~(120G) drive, 1G RAM.  .LT. $800, which is not
        that bad.  A wweek ago I asked a "Live Chat" person about
        scrubbing the Windows; it was "No; sold as-is."

        Of note: when I checked that discountpc place, the 3.0Ghz was
        gone; the other were from 1.2 to 2.0GHz.  More disappointing was 
        the sloppy" way some site had listed their TP's. E.G.: 2000GHz 
        and other careless errors.   Makes you wonder how far these
        places have to dim the lights when they are paying their
        employees... .
