I was given an old computer by my neighbors a few years ago, and just recently found it in my closet. It is very old, a Compaq deskpro XL5133. The interesting thing is that it has an ethernet port for high speed connection and it also has Microsoft Office 2000, with Word. It has no memory to speak of and I think the hard drive is 2 gigs. I'm sure I can upgrade some of the memory, but I wouldn't use it for any intensive programs, mainly surfing. It has a Pentium I processor. I already have a Sony VAIO, but I would eventually, like to build/ customize a new computer in a year or 2 and figured this would be a good place to practice. Is it possible to save the current programs, like office 2000 and then upgrade the 2 gig hard drive for expanded storage, possibly a 40 gig hard drive. It doesn't have a cd rom, but I'm attempting to see if I can install a cd-rom I have for installing programs. I would like to make use of this thing since it was given to me, but is it worth it to try or just scrap it?
