Default Another impulse buy (laptop)

I've been wanting an extra laptop as a backup computer, and to maybe replace my tower computer and what it connects to, and maybe as a computer I can take places without worrying about it getting stolen from me along with all my files.

I went to the Goodwill store, and they had several identical second-hand computers for sale. Probably a donation from a business. And after a mere 15 minutes of poking at it I bought it for $125. That price does not include a mouse or power supply, which makes the deal less sweet.

Luckily I have an extra universal power supply here, which I use to make it easier to move my Sony Laptop from couch to bed and back. So technically I don't need one. And as far as mice go, I've never used a mouse that came with a computer, so I would have bought a new one anyway.

The computer is a HP Compaq 6515b. The screen is very dusty sitting there open in the store. I still have to clean it. And if I don't like the computer, I can return it within 7 days.

FWIW, this link shows the specs: http://www.notebookreview.com/defaul...eview=HP+6515b
