I have been resurrecting an old laptop of mine this past week. It is my longest living laptop, since 2001. It is a Toshiba Satellite 1755, with a 700MHz Intel Celeron and 192MB of RAM. I am still debating on what to do with it. I might make a wall computer out of it, or mount it in my kitchen somewhere.
The laptop had broke screen brackets, which my dad had welded back together in 2004. I gave the laptop to my mom after I got my Dell Inspiron 5100. About a year ago the back light went out in the LCD, so I had to rob a light out of a parts laptop I had laying around. The laptop still gets about an hour and a half of battery time.
