2 working computers - one with Windows 98, Word/Works/Resume Maker/several other programs, a 7-gig harddrive, 64MB RAM, CD drive, CD-RW drive & 16" monitor. I'm putting my old mouse on it & I picked up a keyboard for $8 & 2 power cords for $7 each. After I finish going thru everything & making sure it works ok (which it does so far), I'm going to give it to a friend. She had been looking to buy a home computer. It will be sort of a belated Christmas present.

The other has Windows 95 on it & I have to put the keyboard on to see if it works. Don't you just love when dear ol' MS tells you "keyboard not found, press F1 for help". Duh. If I could press F1, I wouldn't need help ;). Anyway, it's going to get added to MIL's house for email access/internet searching. It's a much smaller system but plenty for that.
