Default WTB Inexpensive laptop for my kids

Hey Guys, I'm looking for a decent cheap laptop, P4M or AMD64 or better with atleast 1GB of ram. Wireless would be a huge plus but not required. 14" or larger screens and a DVD ROM/burner (can be only a ROM) also preferred. I have extra SATA laptop drives so it can be driveless. Post prices and specs here, I could possibly trade a Seagate XT 2TB SATA 3.0 drive for it as well. I will post pictures of that drive if there is any interest in it.

what is your definition of inexpensive? ie: what price range are you looking at?

Under $200, I don't need a powerhouse, they mostly run educational type software and some flash games/low power games.

Try your local Kijiji site, usually lots of older cheaper machines there.

That's the thing, I am not looking to go much older than a P-M Dothan based unit or AMD 64/Semperon unit. I'd love to find something missing a SATA hard drive, I have lots of those around.
