So, what do I know about this laptop, then?

I have no idea about the battery, as that is missing. Also, there's a RayoVac 4.5V 'computer battery' hiding in the battery compartment, and I have a suspicion that it doesn't belong there.

The main battey SHOULD havebeen in the compartment under the keyboard, next to the easy-to-pull HDD. There's a trackball that pops out the side of the machine, there's a small 'status' LCD mounted so that it is visible when the machine is closed.
And this is the most puzzling; along the top edge of the keyboard there's symbols such as what you'd find on a tape deck.

  • This script WILL log your IP adress.
  • Profanities, 'L337' speak, links to unrelated stuff like Pr0n and online gambling will result in your IP being banned, a message being sent to your ISP and anything else nasty I can think of...
  • Suspicious HTML in the comments field will also cause me to give you hell.
  • While I don't have any user registration here, that's no reason to use a 'nick' belonging to someone else.
