Dell Latitude E7470 Laptop Project
I bought that bare bones Dell Latitude E7470 laptop from my son for $100.
I ordered the following parts this morning to get it working again:
- SSD: Crucial P3 Plus 500GB PCIe 4.0 3D NAND NVMe M.2 ($49)
- RAM: 2X Crucial 8GB DDR4 3200MHz CL22 ($28 each)
- Battery ($24)
And I happen to already have a compatible Dell power brick from the old Chromebook I got back in August (I plan to send the Chromebook to Dell for recycling).
So for a total of $238 I should have a decent laptop again by the end of the week. Excellent!
It needs some cleaning up and there's not much I can do about the deep scratches on the lid, but I'll probably put some System76, Pop!_OS, and other stickers on it to cover those up.
