|I can not find the listing of Laptop specifications in the post ?|
IF you need Windows, ME is the best choice, though maxing the memory to 320MB would be the first upgradel. IMHO would install Puppy Linux 5.28 which at least supports modern web browsing et-al..
1200-XL300 (original spec)
650 MHz Intel Pentium III mobile processor
64 MB on-board RAM (expandable to 320 MB)
6 GB hard drive
One Type II/III PCMCIA card slot
Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....
