With some duct and make some disassembly, I would have it spraypainted balck (dunno what you could do for the keyboard) install XP and if it has USB ports get urself a USB wireless adapter and you've got a perfect mini-ish laptop for web browsing and maybe playing Doom95.

Give us some specs

Beuty, been a long while since I've seen a windows 95 screenshot, the password protection was top notch(aka F8).

I bet there is somebody out there that would pay good money for it. I can see the ebay ad now...."Vintage laptop for sale. Rare"

Try and run crysis, come to think of it, i don't think it will even display the shortcut.

My phone is a **** of a lot faster than that thing, how old is the laptop ? i want to know so i have an idea of the specs PC's will be in the same amount of time again, if you understand what i mean.
