Sweet new computer!

I just bought myself a new laptop over the weekend. It nearly broke the bank at $24 from the Salvation Army! I don't want to get into the habit of just putting up photos, but this was such an amazing find, I have to share action shots with you!
Weighing in at 15 pounds and housing a 20 megabyte hard drive, this beautiful Toshiba T1300/20 is so KEEN.
Simple and effective main menu. I'm looking for some new wallpapers, but this should be okay for now. (I've since changed the date to today's, by the way.)Some system settings? I especially like how the date's been reset to 1900. (Sharpened in Photoshop to increase legibility.)
From the power of my computer-snooping and Google abilities, I discovered that this lady was the laptop's previous owner. Note to people who donate their personal computers and/or laptops to thrift stores: delete your resumes and other important information first, otherwise weirdos will stalk your photo on the internet.

Overall, a winning weekend. (And I didn't even mention the soapbox derby!) I figure I'm going to use this laptop for school to take notes in. Hopefully the keyboard is really loud and klackety. Also, if anyone has any information on this particular model, knows how to use it, please let me know! I'm looking for manuals, programs, anything.
