What to do with old laptop





Stubru Freak
What can I do with an old laptop?

Pentium III, running Fedora Core 4

I really can't find anything useful to do with it, webserver is impossible because I'm behind a router controlled by my ISP which doesn't allow incoming connections, and also because my ISP just doesn't allow webservers on their network.

Media pc, as long as it has a good video card and sound card. I got an old PIII 800 desktop hooked up to play mp3s and almost as a Tebo to watch tv shows and movies. Plus it can still play some fun games like StarCraft, on the big HDTV with 5.1 System now that is fun.

If I had a spare Labtop I would use it for an MP3 player, and DVD Player for trips. If it doesn't have a DVD drive you should be able to get one for cheap and get some more life out of you old hardware. Or if you have kids, lets them have it for school or fun.
