"Sony VAIO PCG-993L Memory Upgrade Specifications

The Sony VAIO PCG-993L takes the PC133 SDRAM SODIMM 144pin memory. RAM
Type, and comes installed with 128 MB (Removable ) of RAM. You can
upgrade your Sony VAIO PCG-993L to up to a maximum of 512MB Memory
RAM, the system has 2 Sockets to install memory, already with 128 MB
(Removable ) standard memory installed. For best system performance
use the maximum amount of allowed RAM per slot for your system. "

 Can you think of a use case for a no-GUI laptop? For KMUZ, I was
hoping to make a audacity audio-capture/editing system, or maybe a web
browser station for research, but the absolute least demanding but
useful thing that might be possible w/o GUI would be a dedicated audio
player, like plug a FAT thumbdrive in and play mp3s off a menu. Any of
those seem possible?
