Re: Old/crappy pc/laptop users, come chat and share here!
mine isn't that old (1998 i think) but it comes with P3 450MHz, 64MB pc100 ram, 4GB HDD, 2MB vram (!). A Thinkpad 570e
I've pimped it out by adding 256MB of ram, a 40GB hdd, wifi g card, and a higher cap battery. In total cost me around £200 (i had to buy the dock & ultrabay drive to install os). Possibly a bit too much but it's such a well made laptop and soo small without feeling it. The size of a pad of A4 paper.
Running Ubuntu Feisty Server with icewm, rox, kazehakase, pidgin, rhythmbox, vlc, and wine. Not that impressed with kazehakase so i'm going to install firefox from it's site, not the repo's.
Just have to figure out how to automount, autologin without a DM ( i.e. without the $ startx command), figure out a kinit error, monitor the battery somehow, cpu scale (could do it in windows but seems impossible in linux), solve a "caught signal 11" error, browse network shares, and figure out how to use this wifi card in roaming mode.
Quiet a lot to sort out tbh but intend on doing fup all this summer. Tired of working 6days a week through sunshine.
