what? Punctuation and seperating thoughts... That's a reader's best friend.

So are you trying to resell this computer..? That's hardly enough ram to even get the thing to turn on.

well, I sure as heck wouldn't buy a computer with 128mb of ram and a 10 gig hard drive for 99... whatever that symbol is. The free one may be a gamble, but the odds are in your favor with your... nan..?

I woundn't go with the 99$ one... that 10 Gig drive is probably near the end of its life, and who knows what condition that 17" monitor is in... and 128Mb ram? that MIGHT be enough to boot windows... and use the calculator, or play solitare.
