Mint Condition Dell Latitude c840 laptop for sale (£350)

by oneafrikan on September 6, 2005

I’ve got a Dell Latitude c840 for sale (I no longer need it, so no point in keping it).

If you’re interested, either mail me from this site or comment on this post… ;-)

It’s in really good condition as I’ve looked after it. Never had a problem with it. It has about a year of it’s 3 year on site next business day guaruntee left. It also has the most up to date BIOS on it.

It’s got Windows XP Pro on it. It’s also got Ubuntu Linux on it, but I can remove that if you want me to. Mark Shuttleworth is behind Ubuntu Linux (, so it’s pretty neat, and you can pretty much get everything you need to work on Office docs and browse the web / email for free, so it may be an option if you’re strapped for cash and don’t feel like shelling out your hard earned cash to Microsoft.

It comes with two power supplies (ie: one for home and one for work/girlfriend/boyfriend), one of which is brand new and cost £32. It also comes with 2 Dell recovery discs, which have Win2000 Pro on them. I can also give you a Dell laptop bag if you want, but that’s up to you.

I’m looking for £350 for it.

Here are the specs of the machine, straight from the Dell support site (I can send you a word doc with all the specs in it formatted nicely):

Service Tag C7TRF0J
Service Code: 26594639299
Computer Model Latitude C840

and all the usual stuff you get on a nice laptop!

If you’re interested, either mail me from this site or comment on this post… ;-)



Your laptop seems of interest to me. How old is it? Does it have a wirless connection so that i can travel with it and access the internet?

Would you be interested in taking £275 for it?

Kind regards
