Hi, new to these forums, posted this in General Help initially last week but it hasn't gotten much attention, then I saw the Notebooks forum and thought I'd try it here.
I found an old IBM Thinkpad in my company's electronics recycling pile, and grabbed it to see if I could put it to use. I don't have the specs with me right now, but I know the unit has Windows 98 so it may be up to 7 years old? I would like to use it for wireless web access at hot spots, word processing while at home in bed or on the porch, and learning Linux OS.
-- can anyone give me suggestions as to what hardware, memory, etc I would need to do this would be? I'm looking for a balance between top of the line and affordability.
-- Is it actually worthwhile doing this to use this older machine (due to what I may spend to upgrade), or is there a cheap current model that might be a better choice?
Thanks for your time. - franklen
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
