Sold - Vintage HP Compaq nx9105 "Thad" Laptop PC - £50

This Compaq HP nx9105 laptop computer is one of a fleet of machines that used to be our conference delegate registration badge system, around 2002-8.

This example with the fleet name "Thad" hasn't seen active service in the last 5 years, but fired up immediately without issue and has continued to run on soak test reliably. The battery has lost the ability to hold charge, which is unsurprising given the unit's age; likewise it is fair to assume that the Bios battery may need to be replaced soon too.

As with the other ex corporate laptops currently for sale, it has been cased it's entire life and used relatively little compared to a personal item.
