heh, this should be funny:

Pentium 200 Mhz
Sound Blaster Pro
56k modem
Netgear network card
NEC Jessica 2000 case
Graphics card not worth mentioning

Give it your best shot!
Probably not even worth $200!

Got any little brothers/sisters/cousins/neighborkids/whatever hanging around that are wannabe computer geeks? Give it to one of them and let'em have fun.

Maybe the Folders could use a tiny increment in their combined folding ability.

Take it down to the local Salvation Army store. They'll find a use for it, or sell it really cheap to some poor family who can use it.

All else fails, use it for 1) paperweight 2) doorstop 3) conversation piece

First thing that comes to mind is doorstop. That thing was history in 1999 and it's probably a museum piece now. I'm not sure but I think they had a special on it on the history channel. :mrgreen:

Hey, Linux kicks ass. So does Mac and Windows. It just depends on your preference.
