You still have copies of DOS 6 and Win 3.11?
Mind you I think I may have DOS 4 on floppy somewhere. Floppies that have undoubtedly rotted away.
I bet you get several requests!
If not for it as a computer, as components for an art project.
Two requests so far (one of whom has already collected), both of whom wanted to use it as a computer!
1300MB HDD? That's huge for that era!
The little carrier it's in says "320MB", but the disk itself is 1358MB -- it must have been a subsequent upgrade, but it's still a Toshiba-branded disk.
Bet someone asks whether it comes with a case :)
reads link, giggles at People.
Last year I finally threw away the remains of my Toshiba T3100e (286x, 40Mb hard disk, Windows 3.1) and the working Compaq 386sx laptop with docking station.
I believe the IBM Thinkpad with butterfly keyboard I've still got may be a 486 :-), otherwise I think everything is now Pentiums (a 120Mhz, a 233Mhz, a 500Mhz) or later (I'm typing this on an AMD Sempron laptop, heh, sem-pr0n, f'nar!)
I love to see those Sems getting it on...
It's been about 10 years since I read Computer Weekly but their backpage columnist used to write his stuff using a 286 and Wordstar. It's amazing how little processing power people actually need, as evidenced by the growth of netbooks and webphones.
A few years ago old Tosh laptops were much in demand, because they were one of the few models that got medical approval - someone even wanted to buy my broken T3100 for that reason alone.
No doubt times have changed, they probably even risk using Windows in medical kit these days.
If they want a docking station (I think the cables are long gone) to match, I found one in the spare room t'other day.
I'm not a computer geek, where does it all come from? Self replicating computer hardwear, I'd believe it of the rest of the cabal, but ME?!?
I am greatly impressed that you weren't sent messages asking if you had a newer laptop they could have.
I enjoy watching the free cycle here. We are getting at least two messages a month asking for "free car must have tax and MOT". some go so far as to write "must be power steering cd player, ABS, four door...."
"Wanted: Moon on a stick."
I have been tempted to post just that on my local group, with the added note "stick must be exactly right shade of beige" . Said group should be rename WANTCycle
