I can buy this laptop from a sort of Ebay in Holland for the price of €15,-
That's about 18$.
Would that be a good choice, the only defect it has is the adaptercable is broken so it only works in a certain position.

Thanks..

For $18 dollars I would buy it...even an old laptop like this still worth more than $18 bucks!

I have a Wallstreet laptop...and it runs just fine. Although the battery is long dead.

You can:

- run/boot into OS 9 natively
- you can run OS X on it (I think I have 10.2 or 10.3 on mine)
- if running in OS X...you can even get a PCMCIA wireless card for wireless internet. Although I will admit internet surfing with it is not that speedy!

And if you wanted to, you could even get a replacement power adapter.

Good luck,

Thanks Pigoo3, just sent the guy an email.... now we wait

edit: made a little mistake... it was 22$, the 18$ was another one I'm trying for...
