Nov. 28th, 2006 @ 11:26 am seeking laptop for magical art adventure
Current Music: Muse - Time Is Running Out
By the First Law of Procrastination I'm not supposed to make this request until the very last minute, but does anyone have a laptop I could use to display Symphony on C at the installation on Friday? I'll need it from around 3 PM to 9 PM, and will return it immediately after. There is little risk that it will be stolen, because it will be locked, and at any given point during the day I or my classmates will be watching over it. It can be any laptop running Windows XP. Preferably:

  • Pentium 4 or recent AMD processor (if it isn't, it should be fine, but I'll probably ask you to spend a minute or so making sure my program will run before I borrow it from you)
  • 256 MB RAM or more
  • with a TV-out card (there will be a VCR-style video port and an audio port on the back, or on a device that attaches to the laptop with said ports), or failing that, a non-broken screen and non-broken built-in speakers

    If you have a laptop you are willing to lend me that is missing these features, but is running Windows XP and not on the verge of death, please let me know also. Virtually any laptop made within the last four years will be adequate (though not necessarily ideal). Thanks!

    My laptop's free for you to use. I trust you won't make it die.

    I'd offer mine, but it's a bit too old for this. sorry, though I'm glad to hear someone else can help.

    Honestly? If there isn't an extremely high risk of it going kaput in the middle of a show (like R40, my '03 laptop which has been to three countries, seen years of continuous usage, been manually repaired at least three times, and has maybe one or two components that is not known to spectacularly fail at random), I'll consider it. If it can play a 7 MB OGG file in the newest version of winamp and run MS Word at the same time without crashing, it's probably good enough for me.
