Most of you know about that grey cluttered thing in the corner of my room and how relatively naff it is ... I thought it was pretty low spec - until I saw this ...

Here

One word - O_O

What is the postage on the item? It is well worth 10pence just to have a go on?
How long do you reckon it would take to install windows? (Near impossible on 40MB hard disk!).

You have to collect the item ... damn it. >_<

As for installing Windows ... that thing probably has trouble handling 3.1, and 95 or 98 would be out of the question. I think 95 needs a Hard Drive of over 100MB to install on, and the install size for Windows 98 needs well over 200MB ...

BTW, is anyone else having trouble gettin onto Microsoft.com?

Well, maybe my connection is turning against me, just like every other electrical appliance in this damn house (Don't ask, bad day).
