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.

"Resurrecting older laptops with alternative operating systems... oh, wait, XP is just fine". That's kinda funny.

I would like to see what you can do with something like my Thinkpad 365XD: Pentium 133 MHz, 40 Mb RAM, 1 Mb video card, no network, no modem, no USB, still runs its original installation of Windows 95 (never formatted).
To "resurrect" a computer, the bare minimun it should be able to do is to surf the nowaday's web.
