condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: HP
model name / number: Pavilion 743c
This is a Pavilion 743c with an old emachines motherboard.
It has only 2 GB of RAM and an 80 GB hard drive.
The CPU is an old Pentium 4.
This is so slow it cannot handle Windows XP.
So, is it useless?

I decided to split the hard drive into 2 partitions.
One partition has DOS and the other has a Linux-based OS called PuppySeamonkey.
In the pics you can see I first go into DOS which goes automatically to a menu showing you all the old games I have installed.
In the pics I then go into PuppySeamonkey (Linux) where you can watch your movies or listen to CD's.

PuppySeamonkey boots up almost instantly. I did have XP installed but it took like 10 minutes to boot up.

Think, who could benefit from such a computer?
My grandkids loved playing on it when they visited.
Old games like Mario & Luigi, Centipede, PacMan, Unreal Tournament, Digger, Revenge of Froggie, and tons of others are on there. Also, there are tons of educational games installed as well. These games teach math, geography, typing and spelling.

If you want, respond to this post and I will send a YouTube link to a video I have made about this computer. In the video I can show you how well everything works.
