yes, its a 1wattt amp. It's worth the money when I used it all the time... now it just sits.. :(

Once defcon come around again, and the updates for the distro come I'll be using it alot more around vegas. :D

I power it on the adapter it came with + I've made a series of batteries with duct tape and electrical tape to make it portiable.
How much did it cost? And how much does it increase your transmitting/recieving range?

This particular laptop has a Standard socket 478 interface and desktop 845 chipset, ebayed for the pentium m 2.0 dropped right in, updated the bios. so far so good

didnt help the battery life as much as i hoped, but then this notebook was not meant for the pentium M either, the Fastest cpu ive had in it so far frequency wise was a 2.6 pentium 4 that sucked down the battery so fast it wasnt even funny

RogeR how long of battery life do you get from your dual batteries?
darkangelamd how is the screen on that laptop? That is pretty much the only thing keeping me from getting it

I get around 1hour and 30min of battery life using both batteries at the same time... That's using a internet browser and other normal operations.

Time for more retro goodness:

701c.jpg


IBM 701c, with the 'Butterfly' keyboard. Running Windows 95 OSR2, rock solid...runs AIM and mIRC for weeks at a time without rebooting in the dorm room, while I turn off my main pc when I go to sleep. 16 Megs of ram, but it's been upgraded to a 4 gig hard drive and I added the network card.

I remember working on those "fold-out" keyboards! As a PC tech I had to support several of those models many years ago. They are still awesome laptops to type on. It seems that IBM really knows how to build a laptop keyboard.

I have the same one. :)

512mb and 40gb HD, Orinoco mini pci for the wireless.
Runs like a champ. 4+ hours just browsing (silent mode and long life settings), 3+ hours doing real stuff, 2.5 hours DVD, 2.5 hours+ Games.

Really love the silent mode (gets the cpu to about 1ghz from the 2ghz and saves power and well becomes silent :) ).

Runs linux very well (even knoppix).

i have to ask on knoppix did yours suffer from that nasty little boot bug where if you didnt feed it the -noscsi option that it would freeze, thats one problem that drove me up the wall when i was using knoppix-std on it.

once you feed it knoppix -noscsi works flawlessly (at least on my rev 301)

one other thing thats really nice unlike alot of books that lock out other brands of cards (even newer tosh) ive ran different types of mini pci wlan boards from one i tore out of a dlink +520, linksys WRT54g, somedamn broadcom msi thingy. funny thing i always end up going back to the orinoco based toshiba internal.

Yes, I had the same issue. But feeding the -noscsi option to the boot loader did not bother me at all. I actually created a second CD and modified the boot loader with the -noscsi as default.
That was something that affected all computers with firewire cards. All my computers with firewire had that same issue.

We don't have to do that anymore though with the latest version of Knoppix.

The orinoco mini pci is the best. There are a lot of linux drivers for it. It think redhat or mandrake detected and configured it automatically when I installed the distro.
For windows xp, are you using the orinoco drivers or the one from Toshiba?

The orinoco drivers are much better. The problem with toshiba as all other laptop manufacturers is that they are slow if ever at updating their drivers.

I always use the latest drivers from the parts manufacturers.

I am also running on Toshiba bios 2.10. What about you?

My two, (no pics since my server died)

Dell Inspiron 8200
15" Ultra XGA
P4m 1.6Ghz
384MB DDR
24X CD-ROM (wish I had DVD)
Floppy (wish I had the 2nd battery)
Cisco Aironet 350 Internal Wi-Fi (Best internal wireless next to Orinoco)
nVidia GeForce 2 go
30GB Hard Drive

Dell Inspiron 5000e
Intel Celeron 600Mhz
128Mb SDRAM
15GB Hard Drive
24X CD-ROM (usually out in favor of 2nd battery)
External PCMCIA DVD-ROM (when needed)
15" TFT display (1024x768)
16MB ATI Rage Mobility graphics
Xircom 10/100 Ethernet

I have 3 batteries for that older Inspiron because one of the 2 I got originally was recalled. One of these days I'll find a screen housing from an Inspiron 8200 and I'll hack my Aironet 350 into it. My new job has me doing tech work for IBM and Dell so I may see if I am afforded some type of discount.
