from the movie 1408
(Dimension Films, 2007)
Heh, I pretty much got this as a joke to myself. :) This is Mike Enslin's (John Cusack) Dell Inspiron E 1505 laptop from the movie 1408 after a fire has pretty much destroyed it.
I figured they probably just took a propane torch to a working laptop
(and I used to work for Dell fixing these things), so I had to get
this just to see if I could make it work. My assumptions were correct:
All it needed was memory (and an A/C Adapter) and it booted right
up. The light on the screen doesn't work, but with a flashlight I
saw the Windows startup screen and the Dell 'Welcome' screen. I logged
onto Dell's service site and discovered that the warranty had expired
2 weeks before I bought it... Damn. :) My guess is they never even
turned this machine on, just set it on fire.
It can just barely be matched up on-screen. In the theatrical cut,
when Mike (Cusack's character) is grabbing the tape recorder out of
the box his wife is holding, this laptop is just beneath it... I'll
put up a screen cap showing it soon.
Here's a screen cap of
where it's used, I can actually match up the bits
