FS R51 2888-2ru parts machine-BIOS passworded $30.00 shipped. Finally gave up on this, I will keep the Hard drive, ram, and the best cd drive and sell the rest.

Plastics bottom: fair, there are a couple places where I used screw that were too long and dimpled the top.
LCD: XGA fair, bright but there are a couple of pressure points.
Battery: 9cell works but won't guarantee length of time
Wireless: I believe it is an Atheros, but I'm not going take it apart to see. does work though
CPU: dothan M 725a, work well
Keyboard: very little shine.
No breaks in the plastics that I can see all ports work.
CD/rw: is noisy but I believe it works-no guarantee.

Any questions feel free.

I am also going to post a 390e and an I series that post up but I have not idea of the specs.
if you want any combination of the machines I will have as many details as I can find later tonight.
