I was on Property Room and saw several Panasonic Toughbook CF-48 laptops being auctioned. I figured it's worth about $100, without power cord or OS. The laptop plus shipping cost $116.29 and the power cord plus shipping cost $12.10 on eBay. Ubuntu Netbook Edition - a popular Linux operating system - is free, of course.
Property Room auctions items confiscated by police; I have a Peavey guitar amplifier with the case number and detective's name on a tag. I think this laptop was used by the Collier County Sheriff's Office (according to stickers left on it) and was sold when they upgraded. StealItBack.com lets victims recover their stolen items before they are sold.
Battery has not been tested and may not hold a charge. Due to licensing restrictions, this item will be shipped without any software, including operating system software.
