Got this little gem today at a Savers thrift store for $9.99. I had no idea if it worked, and it unfortunately came without a power supply, but I just couldn't pass it up. After correcting a bend in the case by the power port, I plugged it in and it booted up. Turns out it's a 2005 1.5 GHz with maxed-out RAM, and the battery even holds a charge! Very happy with this find and it functions better than my other one with the working battery and near-perfectly display for the age. Condition is a bit worse though as there are some bends/dents in the case and scratches on the lid.
