What To Do With Old Laptop


Recommended Posts

I have several old Gateway Solo 3300 laptops. They were originaly designed for Win98.

Specs -

500MHz Mobile PIII

128MB RAM Max

12.1" display 800*600

Without booting up or opening it, I think 11GB HDD (this can be changed though)

10/100 NIC but no wireless (could be added through PCI card or usb but there is only 1 usb)

External Floppy or DVD

I know I run Win98 or Win2K on them. XP is slow but installable. I would like to try & learn Linux but would like it to have a GUI.

So my question is what can or would you do with these (other than throw them away)? If Linux, what flavor & version. Or what other projects would you come up for these.
