I use my Powerbook 1400 for Terminal access. It's pretty handy.

Nice. Similarly, but not nearly as classic (well, maybe more nearly than I care to admit), but I'm using a Powerbook 1400 running MacSSH for a similar purpose. The PB has a wireless card, so I can run certain terminal aps from the living room via SSH while my wife is using the iMac in the office. My goal is get a VNC client working on the 1400 and, using OSXVNC, access all or most of my GUI aps as well. So far I'm not having much success there, which I think is due to the PB processor speed and maybe my connection speed, but I'm pretty happy with my SSH access. I'm trying to get a CLI e-mail client working, and use Links (CLI browser) for those pages and e-mail protocols that my 1400 can't handle natively. It's nice around the house, and has made my 1400 a functional traveling machine again, too. Not a powerhouse, by any means, but I can once again check my mail from my hotel room, retrieve files from home, and set my home computer to do certain tasks from afar.
