[rescue] Need somethings for an old Dell Laptop

Wow, lots of info.

I like the sound of the CPU upgrades. Not sure how much a 2.4 ghz
P4-m/400mhz bus goes for, but from 1.8 that may be enough of a boost
to be worth a little money. Almost like dropping a Weitek into an IPX

I've tacked down the PATA case for the media bay on Amazon as well as
that main battery that was mentioned - I like that price much more
than what Batteries+ quoted me! Amazon also has the CMOS battery nice
and cheap.

I'll still need to track down some more ram though. Isn't it sad that
a web browser can cause thrashing in 256mb? Hopefully I can find the
right SODIMMs eventually to go to 2 gb. With enough RAM & diisk this
can still be a very usable netbook for several years.
