    That laptop sounds pretty neat.

    Can install 2 ISA cards, as well as a 5.25" CD-ROM drive.

    Yes, it's a joke. Well, not really a joke. There IS somebody selling this, but it's not me.

    I guess it could be used as a big heavy door stop. I bet you would get a carpal tunnel syndrome with you keep typing on that thing.

    I think it is used but I'm not sure since it isn't much thicker than some new ones that I've seen.

    It says in the description it's not new... But I find this hard to believe. Maybe they don't want people to know they're getting such a good deal.

    Specs:

    100 MHz
    8 mb RAM
    500 meg hard drive.

    I would hope that isn't new...

    See, that's a clever play on words, that is.

    Absolutely great for self-defense. Remember, there is no defense against common sense. ;)

    Oh we've got a machine similar to that, but it's IBM and a bit slimmer. Screen is bigger too. with an external "slider bar" for screen brightness. Floppy AND CD drive on it too. got it free off my cousin seeing that I bought his newer IBM laptop off him. from no laptops to 2 in one smooth move!

    It's actually quite good. I love writing and doing very, very low level work on old machines.

    Ironically, that laptop is more expandable/upgradable than any Apple currently has on the market.

    Also, SEXEH.

    Mmm...thick...
