I have a Sony Vaio PCG-818.  It's from about 1998, and has the following

Pentium II 300MHz
13.3" 1024x768 LCD
192MB RAM (the maximum that it will take)
500MB hard disk (a replacement for the original 6GB drive).
2 PCMCIA slots, one USB port, and modem but no other networking.
serial, parallel, and VGA ports
DVD-ROM drive.  This isn't the original drive; I may have the original drive
in my stash.
comes with (dead) battery, 19V brick power supply.  If you want/need, I can
throw in a PCMCIA Ethernet interface.

The computer currently boots into a version of "DSL", Damn Small Linux.
Unfortunately, it's such old software that the web browser can't view most
web sites, as it doesn't support https.

I'm offering this as-is in case anyone collects old x86 machines or old
The computer is in Jackson, NJ.  I can ship or I can bring it to VCF East.
