I received this HP NC6400 laptop off-lease from one of the Saskatchewan Crown corporations several years ago. The hard drive was removed so I installed a 320GB hard drive that I pulled out of a PS3. Note that the hard drive reports SMART errors so don't expect it to have a long life. However, it still seems to function reasonably well which is why I left it in the laptop. Booting past the BIOS requires hitting F1 to "ignore" the SMART errors. I have used it for some light testing and technical research but it is mostly in the same condition as when I received it. I'm looking to upgrade to something a bit newer which is why I'm selling.
Intel Core Duo T2400 / 1.83 GHz
optical (DVD) writable drive
3 USB ports
1 ethernet port
1 serial port
SD card reader
The keyboard and touchpad are functional and in good shape.
The power adapter is included and you'll need it; the battery doesn't hold much of a charge but replacement batteries are still available on the market if you're interested in using this as a mobile device.
I installed CloudReady from Neverware on it. It is ChromeOS and it has basically turned the laptop into a Chromebook. This laptop is fine for casual web browsing, a user new to computers, or a hobbyist who likes to tinker and squeeze life out of older hardware.
If you don't like this operating system, you can wipe it and install something else.
