    Does it matter if one or two are missing hard drives? - not all of them

    Having no hard drives is not a problem although if possible would be great.

    Re: Wanted Faulty Laptops

    Just remembered there's a couple of dead machines lying around at a couple of schools that I should be able to get hold of...

    They'll need to be minus hard drives to ensure there's no data goes with them but if you can wait a couple of weeks for me to collect them together you're welcome to them.

    Re: Wanted Faulty Laptops

    Ive got 5 or so dead laptops here with varying degrees of death (hdd, screen, old age). You are more than welcome to them as it gets them out of my office. I will probably run a magnet over the hdd's first to blank them jsut incase there are any files still on them.
