I have an old Compaq running Pentium II that was, I beleive, the last Windows 95 machine left in the store when new. It was so old in fact, that when I got it, I could have bought Windows 98 SE at the same time. And it was still better than Windows ME.
Michael: Jodie, how's my schedule look for today? Jodie: You've got a conference and dinner party at the Japanese Embassy regarding wildlife protection. Michael: Oh, yeah...sorry, but I'll have to cancel that. I'm heading out to save America!
that's CRAZY man. I haven't had a system like that in years! but as recently as 2000, I had a pentium 2 233mhz. interesting thing was that it had a server mobo and had a socket for a xeon or whatever the server class proc was called back then...
My oldest computer is a Macintosh Performa 460. It is over 10 years old, I have it stored in some old closet, probably all dusty and won't work. It had an 030 processor (which is about equivalent to a 386) and an 80 MB hard drive and 4 (!) megs of RAM.
