    I was planning to buy a used Dell latitude laptop. How do I check processor type and speed, RAM harddrive capacity of the machine?

    Most of that info should be available on the screen at boot. If it goes by too fast to read, hit the pause/break key and it will stop untill you hit escape. If a splash screen is in your way try hitting escape then pause/break. Another option, get the exact model number and go to Dell's website to see what the system specs are supposed to be.


    Good Luck

    I second the belarc download. I use this neat little program once a month to track any changes I might not want to miss. One other thing about Belarc is there are a lot of other programs like PC-Mechanic and while I don't understand why, I have 768MB of RAM and only 3 slots. PC-Mechanic and a couple of others reccomend that I can improve my performance by filling the fourth RAM slot, HUH. Now with Belarc it's just the facts mam. You get all the info you know about, and some you did not even that you had. It's so good, I would pay for it, shussh did I say that. It's good, It's free & it's right on target if you want to know exactly what's on your Computer, this is the way to go. Marturo
