probably a bargain for someone - - more powerfull RAM wise than most my early pc's which I managed to get over thirty quartely magazines published on. Think people have short memories - I still use same programs to do same tasks but on an XPSP3 and 3.8Ghz processor now.
We've still got one of those, and it still works. I've had the power supply apart a few times to do minor repairs, but apart from that it still runs WordPerfect (DOS edition) - one of the better word processors.
Printer? We've still got an Epson 9 pin Dot Matrix that works with it.
We've got a laptop of this vintage at work, it's used for two purposes.
a) To prove to people that just about anything can be used to pull a feed from an IP camera, although the image is somewhat blocky on the CGA screen.
b) Not many laptops have serial connectors anymore, and they're necessary to get feeds from many fire & intruder alarm panels via Hyperterminal. You can get USB to RS232 convertors, but they don't work on all panels, but our antique Toshiba works flawlessly, and boots faster than my Vista laptop...
Still running a couple of cica 1988 laptops (they are bigger than my current destop) at work for use on 20 year old locomotives,
Will have to keep the laptops working for the life of the locomotives, that will be a harder task than keeping the locos in running order, some of our locomotives are currently getting a new lease of life after 50+ years service.
