Uses for a laptop?

My department's been given an old laptop, a Compaq 4100 with Windows 95 and 8mb RAM, I think something like a P75 or P133 processor but I'm not sure. Also unfortunately missing the battery and CD-ROM, and some of the keys don't work. Nevertheless it has a reasonably nice screen, I think 800x600 TFT colour, and seems to work in other respects. No USB, of course.

I doubt that we want to spend the money to get this working, add memory, etc. - the minimum spec we can use these days is 500 Mhz or so with 256mb - so I'm wondering if there are any charities etc. in the London area that might be able to use it for parts or something.

Any suggestions?
