Daily usage today
The PCV-S is a novelty item. It will be okay for some old games (depends on graphics card) and office tasks like Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Browsing the web should work fine too for old pages that are text only with maybe some low resolution images. You could use FrogFind for this.
They can be found every once in a while on Yahoo! Auctions Japan or Mercari Japan. You will need a Japanese proxy service such as Buyee for this though.
