I have a phillips pcl200 laptop.
286 4mb ram
20meg HD
10"B&W screen
31/4" floppy
2 ps2 ports
1 ext vga connection
1 com port
2 serial ports
1 scisi port (think thats what is is)

not software onboard but xtree gold and startup menu

Havent got the heart to throw it away it works perfectly, but what to do with it, can anyone think of a use for it other than a musuem piece.

What a super machine. :D Must have cost lots. All that expensive ram!

The internet started with machines less powerful.

You could get free software to make it into a router, a terminal, a network monitor, an internet browser ...

Have a look at the Simtel archive (there are mirrors everywhere). There's lots of stuff there in the msdos area. For a browser look at http://browser.arachne.cz/ .
