    I am sure China pays very little to Microsoft for Windows anyway. Any new OS they create will need updates and an army of programmers who would take bribes to install CIA spyware anyway.

    The real problem is that the fastest P3's probably can't drive the last generation 8x AGP gaming cards in games anyway. I keep some AthlonXP/last generation P4/Athlon64 boards for those.

    If you need networking on a PC/XT you might as well relive the good old days of coax. ;)

    I still have my old 3COM hubs with coax and cat5 plus some old coax cables with terminators somewhere.

    I have a Thinkpad T400 and if I had to buy something newer I would stick with a Thinkpad but a used one. Thinkpads are just easier to work on and cheap to get parts for.

    Never had a compelling...

    Which shooters are you talking about?

    Generally I would rather have a boxed...

    Seems like the Xbox clone USB controllers need XP or later or even Windows 7, but they are cheap on ebay new.

    Ever look around at the local thrifts?

    Most of the valuable stuff was snagged when they started letting people in the door and a few times after when new layers were dug out. I am sure what is left isn't that valuable.

    I have (or had cant seem to find them) some cdrw that were good for dumping drivers on systems during OS installs and then reusing them. Burning a CDR and then junking it seemed like a waste and some...

    There is an Office 2010 installer on the thing but I don't have a serial for it. While the CPU is pretty slow I think the 2GB of RAM is more of a limitation (and the 1GB it shipped with must have...
  13. Anybody still using those Atom Power mini laptops?

    One of the local guys I get stuff from had a cleanout and I snagged a few old XP era laptops and some old Asus Core2Quad gamer boards.

    He sounds like a gamer looking for a gamer board but doesn't list what he is really looking for. AGP would be needed for that.
