Thanks for the info JJB6486. :) I will definately check that out. It has OS 7.1 with not many extras installed. Now Super Boomerang, Nisus Compact, Hypercard, Crystal Crazy among several games.



[e]-Punk, I know what you are saying. The thing weighs almost 7 lbs. :eek: Lethal weapon. ;)

Something i wouldnt mind is something my sister recently discovered (someone in my family found something worthwhile, theres hope for me yet :D ) is an old Toshiba Sub-notebook, 1.6gb HD 16mb Ram 233 cpu i think, its a superb little machine, un-fortunately its a discontinued range and she wont let me get my grubby hands and a copy of NetBSD on it :D
