Probably a good thing. Those SPARCBook 1 were never very reliable, even 
when new, and basically impossible to repair. It it doesn't power on now 
it probably never will. Last two I've run into the battery had leaked 
out and basically dissolved the insides. Even at $24 I'd stay far away 
unless it was shown working.
