One of the best laptops ever. These days it's a bit out of date, but it still has something to say. Of course basic components (processor, RAM, HDD) are way too old (and slow, small) for new software, but they are working and reliable even now about 14 years after purchasing.

I use a Satellite Pro 490XCDT (64mb, w/32mb extension) for 8 years now (second hand!) with win98 installed on it. I believe the laptop must be som 12, 13 years old by now. It still works! I don't use it often, sometimes it's for months in the case, but lately I've been using it daily to do some typing while commuting to and fro work. I'm astounished by the batterylife, it still holds for 1,5 hours, when charged. If you don't use it, it gets flat in a day or two. The system must be one of the toughest laptops ever. I've seen new laptops die much earlier, this isn't retired even ;-) One big disadvantage: the Start button is in the right upper corner. This is from the MSDOS era!!!
