All NC6000'* and NW8000'* ever produced were 5400 rpm drives. This is done for heat and reliability reasons.

Both of these laptops in the series are known as being near-industrial brutally strong and reliable laptops. I've had my fully-loaded NW8000 for over 2 years now. It'* actually rated as a mobile workstation, not a notebook or laptop. It'* heavy, but has more CAD capability than the workstation under my desk at work.

The NC6000 should have built-in bluetooth and wireless lan (and was one of the first models to do that standard), an expansion drive bay for an extra battery or drive, two PCMICIA slots, an SD slot, firewire, Svideo, and a buncha other stuff.

Wow, that sounds like a pretty good unit for its time! Jim why don't you play "middle man". You buy it from him, add your 10% margin, then sell it to ME!

I did not check the laptop to see if the Bluetooth and Wireless are built in but I did not see the normally associated icons on the Function Key profiles which are in blue markings on the keys. I may be wrong on this and Jim certainly hopes I am.

Lucky for you, my NW8000 just happens to be sitting here transmitting useless garbage to BC for me.

The NC6000 should be identical in width and length, but not thickness. Mine is thicker than yours.

See the antenna button? Hit that, WLan and BT both activate. Showing the blue LED in the second pic.

I'd be very surprised if it didn't have both protocols pre-installed.

It is an HP. I will defer the question to Mr. Wren.
