Does anybody have a very cheap laptop lying around?

I need a laptop with a serial port, processor, memory and HDD capacity not important as long as it has a serial port and will run Win98 :crazy:

It will be used for serial programming of car ECU's via the diagnostics port, my laptop does not have a serial port, only USB ports, I know you can get USB - Serial adaptors but have heard they are not very good. The other alternative is a PCMCIA serial adaptor but they are quite expensive.

I thought I would ask here as everybody is always so willing to help. Cheers.

Thanks for the link, but I really do mean 'cheap as chips' if possible.

Have been looking on e-bay but I would have to presume the batteries are kippered on them, so would need to pay another £100?? or more.

Any more ideas?
