I have a wireless network setup at home using G and I am looking at purchasing an IBM 600X Laptop for $180. I am using Sprint DSL. The laptop has windows 98 with 256 MB of ram, 11GB Hard drive, 500Mhz P3 proccessor. It has 2) Type-II (1) Type-III PCMCIA Slots. I have a couple of questions:
1.) Is the laptop worth $180?
2.) Do you have any suggestions on a card to put into the Type-III PCMCIA slots?
3.) Is windows 98 okay to work with DSL and G. Should I upgrade the laptop to XP?
4.) Do you see any performance issues that would be caused by the laptop being so old.
My initial thought is to keep the laptop as light as possible. I only plan to use this laptop for MSMoney, The internet and the normal Office products. Thanks for your help.
