What state does it have to be in?
I got one with a broken keyboard and battery and its a Cyrix
(But it does power on and I installed NT 4 with a external keyboard)

- I also have some kind of mobile 386 if you want that...

I'm also looking for a cheap or free older laptop.
I'm a broke high-school student, so anything would really work for me.

Mainly something that'd be OK to throw around or take to school for a programming machine during our First Technology Challenge event. I'm the lead programmer on the team and it'd be useful to have a dedicated machine that I can write .C files on night and day for our robot.

I don't need to wreck my current box for that (asked for a Lenovo, got a fragile Compaq that's been in the shop twice, parents won't buy another one until I go to college), and besides, I'm a DOS and Windows 3.1 user by heart.

All I ask is that it's in decent condition. Batteries don't need to hold a charge, but an AC adapter is required, for obvious reasons. And of course RAM and a harddrive, too. *glances at most eBay auctions* Size doesn't matter - I've worked with a Pentium 90 with 8 MB of RAM before and I managed to work any kinks out with that.

Sorry to get your hopes up,

the 386 is just the little CPU chip :D
-> It used to have DOS/Win16 and then 95 installed on it but I took it apart::: (I think I still have the RAM socket ) :D
