    what to do with a busted laptop?????

    Hi all,

    Iv got an old IBM 600E thinkpad laptop, the mouse nipple is bust and the keyboard, also it has no speaker connecting cable.

    I`m wondering what do do with, not sure if I can be arsed buying a new keyboard and all they are about £70. Iv been toying with the idea of turning into a super slim workstation. Anyone got any other ideas on what to do with it?
