OK, I have a Dell Lattitude CSx laptop several years old. I got it for nothing and haven't done anything with it. It was a laptop I had when I worked for a business that went bankrupt. It was password protected and I couldn't add any programs to it without administrator rights. I gave it to a "computer expect" friend who was going to fit it for me.
