    Price check: 486 dx22 laptop

    Fully working except for the battery which refuses to charge. I think its because of dodgy battery contacts but im not sure. Comes with floppy disk drive and 2 pcmcia slots. Has been connected to a network before. Running Windows 3.1. Comes with laptop power supply aswell of course .

    Yeah I know a friend who has something very similar and tbh it is not really much use . His battery is also gone and he was told that it would cost more than the laptop was worth to replace it. That rather reduces it's usefullness

    Battery doesnt work because of the memory effect that batteries get - after 5+ years they tend to forget most of their charge. After 10 years its useless.

    I don't know who would want to buy it to be honest!
