       Ok, this is a poor man's question, but anyway, what the heck? ;o)

       I have an OOOOOOOOOLDDDDDDDD Thinkpad notebook - a 486 SL 25 (that is actually clocked at 24 MHz - dunno why!) that I use as my "got nothing to do" machine. When I "got nothing to do" at work, I take this notebook and start writing PIC programs wherever I want (and I have a 110V outlet around). Of course it is slow as it can't be. And has only 127 MB of hard disk (anyone sparing a 525 or greater HD for notebooks around? :oD). But it works, or at least try to ;o) Has 20 mb (36 when I find an old 32MB 72p SIMM stick) of RAM and, as simple as it could be, can have a lot of work doing on that.

       I use the Easytrax for DOS, when I need to do a PCB, etc. Of course I'd like to go further - I want to do schematics and PCBs on it. But I can think of no program that would run on this beast. Anyone knows a program - like circad, etc - that runs:

       - in a 486/25
       - small as it can be, since I have only 5 mb of HD spared
       - do schems/routing/pcb
       - is cheap or free (asking too much...)

       Looking for sugestions ;o)

       BTW: I'm looking for an old battery for the ThinkPad 350C - even died. I haven't it's battery, and I want to be able to use it without the psu. Even the box of the battery helps, because I can find locally the internal NiCad (or NiMh) cells to fit on it. Also, the top cover of the same notebook would be nice, since mine is lookin like a web, with so much cracks and fixes ;o)

Hmm, oh dear, a very old laptop. For the memory stick, try http://www.ebay.com. there is loads of good second hand stuff there (even cheap laptops !) For the schematic software, Orcard version 3 is what I use on a 286 ! A bit slow, but if you don't do huge circuits, then it's quite okay. If you can't fand version 3 anywhere, I can try to email it to you to play with. Regards.

Alexandre,

I read your PICLIST post about your 486 laptop. I have a 1.3 Gb 2.5-inch
harddisk (removed from my laptop when I bought a 20 Gb HD recently) that you
are welcome to have for the price of shipping. Where do you live?

Also, I have some memory (from the same laptop) that was replaced recently.
I believe that they are 8 Mb SIMM (72-pin SO type). You're welcome to have
them, also, if you'd would like.
