Old laptops saved for prosperity and speed beyond iPads?

There are a few technology discovered to improve older laptops? DSSS mode of wifi(/b) is faster than ofdm mode(/g/n) of data transfer, due to signal reflections of ofdm(resend garbled packets).

That 1000 kBps data transfer is still fast compared to USB 2.0 data transfer available on very slow cpus such as Pentium I.

Based on these facts, software or webpage download for older laptops on the internet is very much usable. Save your money for a new iPad?

But, many older laptops are limited in the amount of memory that can be installed. We have to use W2k or XP operating system to take advantage of virtual memory from small hdd(6 gB). W2k can use 128 mB of memory; XP can use over 128 mB of memory. Other operating system tend to require more memory than old laptops can use.

Have fun? Older laptops are now very usable on free wifi hotspots.

Facebook can be used by old laptops on wifi with W2k or XP operating system. Firefox will autoupdate and instal adobe flash player v11.

Facebook has all the apps and games for browser extension.

Facebook can also perhaps do business if you have as many friends as possible.
