Hey YouTube we have another laptop review here. My sick laptop actually I got this one for free and as you can tell us probably a couple of years old here. So yesterday this is Dell Latitude CPI Series and this were kicked in back around let’s say 1999, 2000 so it’s ten years old now.
I went up to the BIOS to a 15 which is the latest one and I’ll tell you that was really a pain to do for being as old as this is, it’s really in pretty good shape. You can see I am missing the “O” key here. It was not mine but it is now but it only has been for a week so most of the life for this has been with actually one of my good friends so it hasn’t really been under my care.
But as you can see a lot of times with the old Dell’s really any old laptop the screen gets really loose and you go like that and flops right down unless you can see with this one it’s actually in pretty good shape. Also as you can see maybe online there that this hinge is kind of broken here but being ten years old and being used a lot all with totally default hard drive none of us can replaced to my knowledge. So we go we have a clean copier or a clean install of Window’s 200o Pro Service Pack 4. Let’s go into the BIOS real quick here. The serial, the number of this is the Dell Latitude CPi A366XT, 366 is the processor speed in megahertz. So it’s Pentium II 366 megahertz. This unit came with a couple of different mono process and 200 megahertz I believe 250 and then 366 which is the best and the new serial is not exactly the fastest ship in the fleet but that’s okay.
Right now it has a 128 mega RAM, I’d like to get that up to 256 pretty soon. Internal cache 256 K, System Memory 128 Meg, video controller which is a neo magic 2200, video memory 2 ½ Meg, RL control or neo magic 2200, tutorial gig hard drive it’s very slow and you can probably hear it and you know where you expect. We’ve got six pages in the BIOS and you do the Alt key thing, just watch between a couple of pretty options here and real bad BIOS. I couldn’t figure out how to get out of here.
The three lights here they are the Apollo light, discreet and right light and then the battery charging it will turn on if you need to charge it up. It will flash screen when you are charging. While this is booting it can take a while. We’ll take it to our round here inside of the notebook. So I think we can close while it’s booting. We put up like this on the back there is an infrared port, S video, VGA that’s the old serial then hiding under this little track over here is I believe that is a parallel port not so much use anymore. I believe it’s used for printing. USB 1.1 LPT also used for printing a fan puts you lower. This is where the power plugs it in. You don’t really see that a whole a lot maybe I need to peak pavilion. Put your power plug-ins right here. Over the left, nope that’s not internet. That’s not modem. That is a font dent. I don’t believe there’s a font dent in there but there is hit sank right there and it dense more out of there. Power jack, some audio thing I’ve no idea what it is, it’s like two parentheses with a line point or half of an error in the middle, and I’ve never really seen that.
Headphones and then your microphone, great audio speaker there. You hear 2000 build up wasn’t earlier very good boot time. We’re on the front, are your true base where you can put either two batteries or battery in a CD, very floppy, describe whatever you want to do. Here’s your other speaker, your left speaker, Kensington. I’m pretty sure the hard drives in here and then two PCMCIA card slots. You don’t really get that typical Dell Logo. This is kind of a square that says Dell at the top and then latitude CPI. By the way, your microphone’s right there. It’s built in.
No pointing stick with this one you don’t get that but you do get your track pad with the right and left lifespan. It’s pretty much what you’d expect. Power buttons up here right under which says Dell Latitude. It’s not really that thin, what do you expect? Screen actually isn’t that bad it’s 1024 by 7168 at 60 hertz native resolution. You can bump it up to 1280 by 800 but then you can scroll a little bit. That’s a huge thing.
I put 98 on it for a while and it was no faster so I think this is about as fast as it’s going to get with the clean copy of W2K. As you might be able to see them Microsoft Windows 2000, 5.00, 2195 built, service pack for X86 processor obviously and 130,000, 528K of RAM.
There’s no Wi-Fi card in this and yes I didn’t make a mistake there’s no ethernet and there’s no dialogue modem in this. So over here I have two ways to get around both those problems. Here’s a PCI Ethernet card or PCMCIA. You can take this ethernet card, put in right here, back here pretty soon.
Then I have this D-Link wireless card but you can also fit these two slots. You can have both of it at the same time, take this card, push it in so you like to come down. You are going to need the drivers so hopefully when you buy it came of the CD, put the CD in this drive and then you should be able to use their clients since when there’s 2000 it doesn’t have a wireless client or piece of software to use with it. You could run XP on here but it would be really, really, really, really slow and I don’t suggest it.
You max this out at 512 mega RAM and that would be expensive because this is ST RAM 100 megahertz. Stick that up. One thing that’s kind of cool of this is if you don’t want the CD drive you can pull this thing over and see if I can do it at one hand. You can just pull the CD drive right out and replace it with another battery. So then you have doubled weight in that will be the battery button which I supposed could be used then. CD drive or battery. This one is just better.
The RAM’s in here, no screws, hold the stupid thing down. So I after I put the camera down and push that stupid thing and lift it up on one edge, stupid as designed I’ve never seen that on notebook, leave it to Dell and come up with this. Get to hold it up, pull on it and push on it and then it kind of pops out.
Anyways, once we got that piece of junk of here’s what we’re left. Left with 128 meg of ST Ram and I think that’s the BIOS strip not totally sure there. So I would like to get another 128, pop that in there and we should be good to go with 256 meg. That’s a lot better than 128. One last thing it’s the easiest thing among and we put back on. That’s the pointed part.
So, for the age it is and the specs it is so that’s there is the Dell Latitude CPi A366XT. Kind of old, really slow I don’t really recommend it. If you have one you could probably just use it through parts or sell it to somebody else online if it doesn’t work. If it does work and you’re happy with it then it’s decent, it supports the 32 bit color, even though you only have 2 ½ meg of video RAM but you can close it you can get a couple of hours out of these batteries than this ones I’ve got. so there you go Dell Latitude CPi A.
