    Hey I had one of those!
    it was the Toshiba Libretto 50ct though. The size of a video case and picked up with tons of accessories at a Car Boot sale for 25 magic beans.
    I had loads of fun playing with it, but it was pretty limited and the 110 was the 'must have' for the micro laptop connoiseur.
    Managed to get Windows 2000 and Vector Linux Dual boot. It ran pretty well considering it was a 75mhz Pentium 1 with 32 Mb RAM and a hefty 10 Gb HDD.
    It was a shame to sell it in the end, but I couldn't justify keeping it.
    If you manage to wedge a 600 into that case, it would have to qualify as Mod of the Decade.
    I for one would have your picture on my wall.

    Now there's a thought, A Minimig in a Libretto case.
    Now that would be awesome, I may have to have a little think about that.

    OMG

    I've always wanted a libretto,,,

    I know they are limited power wise but they are one of the best small laptops Toshiba ever made...

    Oh I'm so envious.
    Please James don't kill it

    hi all

    done 3 hours of soldering desoldering and trying so see what iv done wrong with port 2 but its done now all of port 2 working up, down, left, right, fire0, fire1 all working so only one more to sort out is the left mouse fire0 on port1 so not far off now..
    so it can be done but i dont fancy doing it agen lol

    so next i got to hard wire the power on the floppy drive so it all sits right and the lid will go on ..

    then see if i can put a ram upgrade or an 030 but i think an 030 will get to hot in there .

    thanks james
