clueless eBay seller for today is:

Many HP 1000's don't need a battery 'cheater' plug. If you have the
common '6615' power supply (without battery backup) the machine
will power up perfectly in about 1/3 the time needed by HP 1000's
that have battery backup (and need the cheater plug).

Also if you remove the power supply, there will be no power to the
fans, as these are fed by in-line clips to leads from the power supply
chassis (and two of the 4 fans would be missing).

This machine clearly does have a power supply, it looks like a steal
to me.
