I have had the Dell Inspiron 6000 computer for a long time and it still works. In fact, it is faster than the newer Dell laptop that I have. The space on this laptop is low, so I can't store anything new on it, but it still works. When it was new, it was unbelievable. It has a big screen, a little bit heavy, but functioned really well. I have to laugh at how much I payed for it compared to what laptops cost today. It still has the original battery. It crashed one time and we downloaded everything back on it and years later it still works. The screen crashed and I plugged it to another monitor and it just keeps working. The screen developed vertical lines that came and went for a while until it just covered the whole screen. The hardware though has remained intact. I have known laptops not to survive a couple of years and this one is going on seven years old and still surviving and at not too bad a level. You can't store any data on it, but for listening to music and surfing the internet, it still works great! If you come across one of these, its worth a try. It reminds me of the Energizer bunny! It just keeps going!
