CRIPPLED, but still WORKING laptop.

Toshiba Satellite Pro P100


Powerful 17” multimedia laptop, but unfortunately the video card malfunctioned and now the laptop can only work in VGA mode (It must be selected on boot-up - F8) with resolution setting of 640x480pixels.

In fact that is not a big problem when for example you are watching movies, because the screen is still 17” and does not make a difference.
Please, check the photos, so you can understand the limitations of this low screen resolution.

Most people, who are using the computers only to browse the Internet, check their emails and watch movies will not feel big difference.

I’ve been using the computer in that way in the last two months, but I need fully functional laptop for work and I bought a new one.

The price is reduced and reflects the faulty condition of the laptop. The laptop can be resold even for spare parts. I’ve seen even non-working laptops (the same model) to be sold on eBay for that price

Toshiba Movies   Movies Screen Capture
When you are watching movies despite that the screen resolution is 640x480, you still watch the movies on 17" screen. (which is bigger and better then watching it on 15" laptop screen :-) ) (Please note the 1px vertical grenish line on the right-hand side of the screen)

That is how Windows Explorer looks when you are working in 640x480 screen resolution.
Toshiba FireFox   FireFox Screen Capture
And that is how FireFox looks when working in 640x480 screen resolution
Normal View   Zoom is used
Yes, 640x480 screen resolution is a bit restrictive, but you can extend your viewing estate space with the help of the browser's zooming feature.
