Question Very old computer...

Hi, I have a Olivetti M19 working in my house and i don't know what can I do with it... some friends say that is trash, but others say that I must keep it.

For the peolpe who don't know about that computer, this is a machine with an intel 8088 (4Mhz), 512 kb ram (0.5 Mb.), and uses floppy disks. (500 kb.).

Try and find some old games. I've been tinkering with some old stuff like that recently, it can be kinda fun.

If you have an older ethernet card in isa style you could use it as a remote terminal to your main computer.

That's awesome. A couple of years ago I had a T-286 model, with windows 3.1 on it. I still have some of the games if you want them. I've got packman,battleship,space invaders and a bunch more. Some of them run too fast on my current machine so I can't play them. lol

That's not an old computer, look at one of my former machines.. and mine was portable.... luggable... if you were REALLY strong... and didn't have far to go to get to your car.
