Aaron, are you sure it supports PCMCIA? This notebook has none, it's
so old and still in MCA age. :)

Oh, by the way, I will contact you soon when I conclude the deal with
owner of this wrecked notebook. Should be a day or so.

BTW, some top-tier current notebooks if looked carefully have 3 year
warrenty too and can be brought extended warrenties on some of in
current warrentied stuff.

But be careful with Toshibas, they're out to pull your leg especially
on warrenty and faulty s/w especially when making one-shot disk sets
sometimes blew up. If one did their pointed researches first then no
