Kinda been looking to see if anyone has preferably an old Toshiba,
or IBM  laptop with WIN98SE installed, and not to expensive.
Haband recently had a bunch they sold (IBM laptops) that were
reconditioned ones from IBM themselves, but they would only deliver
inside continental US.  No opetion to ship to HI ALASKA nor P.R.
and its was just what I was looking for.  I dont deal with EBAY
or any of those guys.  Too much hum-bug!  I deal one on one with
whoever I buy something from.

I just bought a Toshiba 490CDT (Pentium II, 4 gig drive, 64 megs) for
$10 at a hamfest last week.  It was missing the power supply and had a
bad inverter, both of which I've already acquired, but was otherwise
perfect.  I have $40 in it working.  Today, on E-Bay, got a Toshiba
430CDT for $26, complete (that's a Pentium 120 MHz).  You can pick up
old laptops for $10 to $40 pretty easily if you are patient (that price
does not include shipping, which may be as much as about $30 (as much as
the actual selling price, in some cases)).  As long as they have some
reasonable memory (not less than about 24 megabytes and preferably a bit
more), they will run 98SE just fine.  But you can also buy a pile of
junk, and sometimes it can be difficult to know which is which.
