If you are interested I have my old Sharp MM20 laptop that I'm willing
to sell. It's not quick though so not sure how well it would work for
DJ Software. This is what I have:
Sharp MM20 Ultra Light Laptop
1 Standard Battery (about 1.5 hour run time now)
1 Extended Battery (about 4.5 hour run time now)
2 Power Cords
1 USB 2.0 Dock and USB Cable
All original Documentation, Cables, Software Etc. Came with Windows XP
home pre-installed, and I can put that back on. I believe it's in the
last year of the extended 3 year warranty.
Issues with it:
Batteries don't last as long as they used to, cases has some nicks and
marks on it from age, screen has a slight ghost like image (most
noticeable on all white background, otherwise hard to notice) in the
bottom center of the screen. If it's still under warranty, I can
probably get it replaced (just haven't bothered).
Also works well with Linux thought he built in wireless card only
supports WEP not WPA under Linux (either under windows).
