Need idea for how to use a Dell Latitude D400
#1
Unbeknownst to me, my uncle gave us a Latitude D400, a compact laptop computer from 2003 that requires an external Disc Drive....

Its pretty bad, and we don't know the password. I'm thinking of reformating the entire thing to run off of linux, but I can't seem to get a good reference for what exactly this thing can actually do by default. I'm wondering if I could treat it like a raspberry pi.

Looks like it has a 1.4 GHz Pentium M and 512 MB (2x256 MB) of RAM. It shipped with XP Pro in July 2004 so as a whole, it's likely not going to do much for you in terms of serving as an actual computer. It would be a very power-hungry Raspberry Pi substitute but you could definitely run a lightweight distribution of Linux on it. Perhaps consult this site for a few potential ideas: https://www.linux.com/news/best-lightwei...ux-distros
