I've got this old Packard Bell Legend 1990CW sitting in my room, but I'm not quite sure what to do with it. It is a Pentium 1 133 mhz, 16 MB ram, 1.2 gig HD, running Windows 95. ALL comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks everybody!

Kirby Says: Trick it into running XP! It can be done, I've seen it. Its funny, takes 15 minutes to do anything.

<(-_-)> Obey Kirby and do as he says.

Well that is pretty classic. You could do some hardcore gaming on it though, I heard that new Pong is pretty wicked. I'd toss it or use it for fun (play around with remote access if you're on WLAN)

with a 1.5GB hard drive, you'd have trouble even installing XP alone

Yes, you would have trouble installing XP on a 1.5GB HD, but remember, I can get a new drive (and controller if i need).

Actually, taking it to a Pong tourney sounds like fun. But I'm still open to suggestions of course.
