    More nostalgia - GRiD 1660

    While we're talking about Windows nostalgia ...

    Our receptionist recently handed me a laptop she found in a cupboard, the owner long forgotten. I plugged it in and it came up immediately. It's a GRiD 1660 with 5MB RAM and a B&W screen. It's running Windows 3.1 (en francais) and has Office 6.

    Anyone got a use for it?

    It's not in the best of nick, with a gaping hole where the floppy should be.

    Grayscale digital photo frame maybe?

    Example: KevinFreitas.net ~ homemade digital photo image picture frame how-to laptop mod and some more generalised links on the subject: Laptop Digital Picture Frames, Digital Photo Frames, Digital Photo Picture Frames

    If you have a old network card for it maybe you could do some sort of news reader where it pulls a simpleish html page.

    I know I shouldn't as I barely got any room as is but sounds like it'd fit nicely in with my retro Toshiba laptop I got at home
    Edit: found pic here

    Was hoping for even more retro
