FS: Gateway P-7805u FX 17" laptop


Mar 6, 2005
Selling my Gateway P-7805u that I just don't use anymore. I bought it brand new from Best Buy a couple years back, but haven't used it since I built my desktop last year.
I used the recovery CD's to boot up a fresh install of Windows Vista. There are a few light scratches on the cover from normal everyday use, but nothing major.


-Windows Vista Home Premium (SP1, 64-bit)
-Intel Core 2 Duo Processor P8400 (2.26GHz, 3MB L2, 1066MHz FSB)
-17" WXGA+ Glossy LCD display at 1440x900
-NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS with 1GB GDDR3 memory
-Intel 5100AGN Wireless
-4GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM (2GB x 2)
-320GB Western Digital Scorpio Black hard disk drive (7200RPM)
-DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) drive with Labelflash
-1.3 megapixel webcam, stereo speakers
-120W (19V x 6.32A) 100-240V AC Adapter
-9-cell 86.6Wh Lithium Ion battery
-Dimensions (WxDxH): 15.75x 11.75 x 1.3"
-Weight: 8lbs 15.6oz, 10lbs 8.8oz with AC adapter

Priced at $350 shipped. I really don't know the going price on these, but I tried to be reasonable. Local pickup in Southern California is welcomed.

$400 is a great deal on that ole jewel!!!!! I personally have a P7811FX and it has been a rock solid system for about 4 years now.

GLWS man.
Nice I have the 7805u also but with the 1920x1200 res screen. My wife mostly uses it now though as I don't play games on it anymore.
Nice! I remember trying to collect info to find out which ones were packaged with the 1920x1200 screen, but it all seemed pretty random to me.

Also, will consider trades for a later gen video card!
Wow, amazing this has not sold yet!!!! these are still very capable laptops.
Good price. glws! I had this laptop too. Strong performance.
2 - 2.5" bays. Man being able to run SSDs in raid was awesome.
Nice laptop for a great price! Had mine stolen last year. :(
Wish I had the funds to pick this one up. Good luck with the sale.
Not to threadcrap OP.

Yes these laptop have two HDD bays.

Yep! Not only that but the bios supports Raid as well. My 7811FX is running dual 320 WD Scorpio Blacks in Raid! Very solid software Raid as well.

:p oh and bump LOL

Can't believe this hasn't sold yet.
Thanks for the bump! All PMs replied and yep I can definitely confirm this has 2 HHD bays with raid support.
