OK, so I am at the university now. Access to the office I'm working half-time at is limited, as is to my home computer. I decided to get a laptop.
Now, I have some rather specific parameters down.
128 - 256 MB RAM (anything above would be an overkill)
10 - 40 GB HDD (not a single byte above 40 GB, I have reasons for that)
400 mHz or faster CPU (heck, do you need anything faster for Win98SE???)
Integrated WiFi unit (there is a WiFi internet access point here, so I'd like to make use of it)
Onboard Lan card
CD-R/RW or Combo drive (don't have a need for DVD-RW
Preferably a built-in soundcard
GPU doesn't matter as long as it's working.
The whole thing will run under Windows 98 Second Edition (I _hate_ WinXP).
As you can see, it's going to be more of a mobile net terminal and basic workstation then a gaming computer (maybe apart from a couple older games, ie Diablo, Starcraft, WinQuake and the sort).
I'm looking for as long battery operation time as possible, and it would be better if the machine wasn't too heavy (3,5 kilos max).
The primary factor, however, is price. Nothing above $750, preferably under $500.
I've tried using Google to find something appropriate, but ended up with only second-hand offers.
What are your recommendations?
After a few minute's searching I've found a laptop that is hopefully what you're looking for. It costs 1,436.51 Polish Zlotych at this site, but they don't deliver to Poland. It's the HP Omnibook 6100. Sorry I couldn't help any more, and I hope you find what you're looking for.

I didn't even know you could get laptops that cheap, don't they cost thousands? If not I should get one early next year, it could really be very, very useful.

I'm having problems trying to come up with a laptop with those specs.
I would say check your local paper / recycle for people selling off their older stuff. As long as you find a base unit you can upgrade/downgrade to what you need.
Ebay may be a good place to look as well.
