Rechecked. This dude replaced the CCFL light with LED, so the screen was disassembled. Can't say it's a bad move, but there are some scratches on the screen corner and I better go for original parts.
Honestly, I already have a perfect retro machine, from my point of view - Toshiba 2805 with Yamaha and Geforce 2. But I just can't stop, so now I monitor the Russian eBay market (avito.ru) and search for old garbage that I can buy 😀
In my pursuit to find a good old laptop I currently own:
Dell Latitude D800 - my first retro machine, found it thrown out in Denmark, was used in Dansk Design School. Still works. Still a perfect thing.
And now stuff that I bought. Lots of laptops were bought just because I'm a lazy ass that doesn't wanna dig information. I was searching simultaneously for good native dos matching and a good dx9 powerful machine. One rule was applied in both directions, these machines must run Thief, an essential game in my life.
Compaq Evo n400c - ultra-portable (was shocked that such piece of tech existed in 2000), nice, have sound in native dos, bad video card, can't run Thief II. No general midi
Compaq Evo n600c - same as previous, but can run Thief II.
IBM ThinkPad R60 - good for middle 2000 games, x1400 can run Half-Life 2, Thief III, and DOOM 3 with EAX (from PCMCIA card). Extremely bad screen, not old, just piece of shit.
Toshiba Tecra S3 - same idea as the previous laptop, but GeForce 6600 is bad for old games, too many issues that prevent playing them natively. And also an Extremely bad screen. Not old, just piece of shit.
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi 1546 (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi 1546, or my final step for an ultimate old gaming machine) - a real gem, ATI x1900 onboard, most powerful dx9 card that still supports old games, palette textures, dithering, and so on. Geforce failed in the 6th generation and ATI kept it all working until the last day of dx9. Have two of them, just because... Also good speakers, perfect screen.
MacBook Pro Late 2006 (A1211) - same as for Fujitsu just GPU is weaker - ATI X1600, but more compact and nice looking machine 😀
Toshiba Satellite 2805 - already said, a best possible laptop that has native DOS, late 90th Windows games, good scaling, general midi, and so on, and can run Thief II!
Toshiba Satellite 5205-S705- Well... Same as the previous one, but can't run in native DOS since it uses a WDM soundcard. But Geforce 5 gives nGlide support for 3dfx titles, Windows 98 allows to play DOS games with good Yamaha General Midi and the screen is gorgeous, it's even good by today's standards. So if a DOS game runs on it, and doesn't require real native DOS I prefer to play it on this laptop instead of 2805 which is perfect, but the screen is older...
