What should I do with a 300Mhz Mini-PC?

From a giveaway of free stuff(By some very kind people), I got a mini-pc.

It's about 6 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 1.5 inches tall.
It's got PCMCIA, Compact Flash, Serial, USB, Parallel, Ps/2, and a slot for a 2.5 Inch hard drive.


I don't have a hard drive yet, but I'll probably get a cheap 5 gigger off one of my friends, but then the question is still, what to do with it?

If I set it up as a media computer, I think I'd be the only one who would use it in my house, and I don't have a car(Yet) to put it in.

Just because it has two clutches, shifts faster, uses a torque converter or has near-infinite gear ratios, requires less driver intervention and is more efficient doesn't make it better in my opinion.

Don't you fold? It would be slow but should work if you can get it online.

Yea, I was thinking of folding, but the processor is rather slow.

It manages 80 Bogomips, how many times per second the processor can do nothing, my friends 166 pentium manages around 200 I believe.


I'll give it a try.

can you drop in a faster $20 hand-me-down processor?
