Hmm i think I have an old HP Pavillion laying around. I think the issue with it was hard drive related, but it's decent because it has integrated graphics and wifi with a media remote controller

@ScorpioMan86 are you still looking?

Got a Dell E6410 with an issue explained here: Help required: Dell 6410 hanging during boot and hanging | Tech talk, news, discussion

What works 100%:

Screen
Battery (+- 2.5 hours)
Backlight Keyboard
WiFi
Removed the audio and USB port to try and troubleshoot the problem, but I can put it back

Original Charger included

WWAN card was sold

Occasionally stalls during POST
Works fine until graphics drivers are installed.- So it can technically be used with Win7, but you can't change screen brightness, etc...
