Use it as an MP3 jukebox, or a DOS classic gaming machine. That thing could run Wolfenstein 3-D and DooM magnificantly.

I actually have a classic Toshiba Libretto 50C laptop. 166MHz p1, 8mb ram, integrated gfx (2mb?), 56k modem. I like to take it out to payphones in the middle of BFE at 3am, connect my splitter and coupler, put in a couple quarters and dial-up for some Redhat...stuff. Hard to trace stuff to an empty payphone, right?

That computer is in no way a classic. It's simply a piece of junk unless all you do with it is browse the Internet and do the odd piece of word processing. I strongly urge you not to upgrade it as you really will be wasting your money! Just throw it away.

I was given 6 Pentium 120's recently and I have no idea what to do with them!
