    I know it's an old lappy now, but it's still chugging away just fine. I had to bring it out of the closet just in case I needed it to test a hdd from our Sammy 7.

    I fiddled around with it, updated everything, and played a little Diablo 3 on it lol. Still does really well. Proud of this little beastie.

    Anyone else still using theirs?

    And I thought my P-7811FX was old! Kudos to you for keeping that laptop going.

    I bought mine 8/9 years ago. Still playing a lot of oldies, but sometimes also try newer games based on DX9/10. 7805u still kicks. OCed of course. I am not thinking about new machine because have work/children and have no time for playing for the whole days.

    Hey I knOw this is super old. Sorry to ressurect an old thread. I dug mine out and it boots but it's super slow. I want to have my daughter play Minecraft with it. It's so laggy, it's unplayable. I'm thinking of doing a reformat and clean install. Would it be worth it to put a small ssd in it you think?

    A basic SSD, sure, just make sure you get the right kind of drive (SATA 2.5-inch, I'd think). Starting with a clean install is a good idea with an older machine.
