$75 Vintage 150Mhz Laptop Needs TLC

I am the original owner of a noname
black 150 Mhz early pentium laptop
that could be restored if you have
some old DOS or early Windows
software that you would like to
keep running... This laptop was
top of the line with the best color
screen offered in 1996, and cost
around $5,000.

Skipping to 2012, I powered it up
and it could boot Win95 before I
recently removed the hard drive,
which is the 43+4 pin variety.
After removing some family pictures
I hammered the hard drive and
chucked it. I know it has run DOS,
Win 95 and Slackware Linux in the
past. Because of the old BIOS,
you'll need a HD of a few gig or
less rather than the modern huge
sizes.

Features: 150 Mhz Pentium CPU, 32
MB Ram, Floppy drive (works), built
in CDROM reader (still works with
errors), 2 PCMCIA slots, DB9 serial
and printer connection at rear. No
ethernet, but I recall using an
ethernet PCMCIA card at one point
that was probably tossed long ago.

Needs: vintage hard drive of up to
~a few Gb capacity. BIOS memory
battery or patience to set the HD
parameters each time you boot.
Latches.

Includes: laptop without HD,
original power supply.

$75, includes ship within USA
