If anyone in Chugalug wants a cheap Chromebook

From: Phil Shapiro 
------------------------------------------------------


This previous Vista laptop is being sold cheap by someone in Chattanooga. It can boot Chromium OS from USB flash drive, 
or you can install Chromium onto the hard drive, too. (You would need to supply the hard drive.)

See http://nickfarmer.me/chromium-on-the-dell-inspiron-1545/ 


and http://nickfarmer.me/installing-chromium/ 


My prediction is that this laptop will sell between $50 to $70. The reserve price (the lowest price the seller 
will accept) is probably $50. Free shipping (since it's being sold in Chatt). 


If you're interested in bidding on this, please let me know so that we don't have Chugalug members 
bidding against each other. I'll put interested bidders in touch with each other so they can figure out 
who wants to be the one to snag this. Hmmm, this might even be a group purchase in Chugalug -- 
with occasional loans to the Chatt Public Library to showcase how older laptops can be turned into Chromebooks. 


Mmmm, Core2Duo Chromebook. You could get a speeding ticket with this thing.

I'll keep my eye open for something similar.
