flashback to 1998? toshiba tecra 500CDT

someone just gave me this old dinosaur, and it seems to work. it has a slot in the front for the floppy, hard drive, and CD drive... but it seems you cant run all 3 at the same time... I had to install the Hard drive in the slot to get windows 98 to boot.

16 MB of RAM.
intel pentium processor at 120mhz
weight: 8 lbs... feels like more than that.
word 97... or office 97? I saw word for sure.
IE 5

I feel like I've entered a time warp with this thing... fun to mess with... it's pretty slow though.

Obviosly slow because you installed a Windows 98 on it. The minimim recommended RAM for Win98 is 64MB. Nice find for a laptop

I collected old computers for awhile. I love old laptops, I'm currently playing with an IBM A31 fun laptop to surf forums with over wireless.
