1.33 Ghz and 512 MB RAM for 200 bucks seems like a good deal to me. Be wary about the battery, though. And I imagine the touchpad is unfixable? Don't quote me on that though. The escape key might just need cleaning out. Again, don't quote me on that. :p

ahh, hopefully your quote is wrong, ... as for the ESC key, i belive its broken off, so i'd prob. replace the keyboard at some point or another... but the track pad, HOPEFully it's replaceable/ fixable


edit: i found this on ebay as well, i dont know if its just the caseing, or its the entire thing for the track pad.
