I cleaned the nub with a spare toothbrush and it came out pretty nice. Removed the Windows sticker since it was faded anyways but it left some sticky residue so I removed that with magic eraser. Thoroughly cleaned the machine since the rubber coating was sticky... it still is in some areas. Anyways I had a 60GB HD lying around, put 98SE on it. I got lucked out with 366MHz + 288MB RAM + XGA. He even threw in a WiFi card and it works fine in the original drive he sent with it (15GB).
I might get a selectabase + selectadock for it and put in a PCI video card to make it an even better retro rig. Thank you again hwattys for the fast shipping.

The sticky coating can be a pain to clean and I have seen a few palm rests that are messed up. Also those port cover flaps seem to be glued on?

This is amazing - if it was from ebay, who was the seller? (In case they have more retro stuff)
