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:

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.
