If you don't want it, I'll have it. I'll find ways of using it other than having it as a paperweight or a makeshift weapon.

I'd buy a ethernet card and use it as another computer, well, not really a good computer, but its always nice to have an older computer too.

I tried using a laptop as a server once, complete disaster - doesnt work. Maybe a torrent box, or put 98 on it, and just use it. Or give it to charity.

Not to mention a waste of capable and running hardware. If the laptop is already DOA, then find some way to have fun blowing it up, but if it runs, keep it.
