Hardware, Embedded Systems Geeks.com were once more very kind to send us one of their products for a review. Geeks sells cheap laptops --among others-- and so we asked for a low-cost laptop without an operating system in it for the purpose of this review. They sent us the IBM T23, (currently selling for just $299) and an extra 256 MB stick of RAM ($30). We tested the laptop with three different OSes, read on for more.

I was thinking older as well. However, you might want to look into either older releases of current distro's, which won't have problems, or some of the particularly small flavours. I've got a PIII-700 or so with 128mb RAM in the bathroom, the CD drive barely works, hard drives no longer function. I boot DSL - 'Damn Small Linux' - the whole thing is 50mb, and it works admirably. Check it out.
