A MAN could hardly believe his luck when he discovered a treasure trove of classic games and glossary of Australian slang on this bargain $5 laptop.
The buyer wasn’t even expecting the IBM Thinkpad 365XD, originally launched in 1996, to still be working after buying it online.
The man, who goes by the name chrisman01 , shared the remarkable purchase on Imgur
Instead he found after loading the machine it boasted Windows 98 and featured an incredible Star Trek-inspired user interface called LCARS.
Mirror Online reports the interface had no mouse support, meaning he had to navigate using the F1-F12 and number keys.

The machine also threw up unexpectedly a solar system game.
