    suggestions for an old laptop

    ive got an ibm 380ed witch is basicly good for keeping papers form flying off my desk


    anyway i have it set up to monitor the incoming and out coming requests the the router now but i feel that it could be used for soemthing better


    any ideas on what else i could use it for ( its got a working cdrom ) but the battrie is so old it can only stay off the plug for 15 min tops

    You could use it as a printer server, maybe an mp3 server, you could buy usb2 add on card and put it in that then get usb2 hds and have a file server.
