I have a 200mhz HP, and it's got USB! - It's my wireless print server.

No pent's left at my house. Oldest PC I have is my PII 400mhz that is used as a file server. I ditched all my Pentiums about a year ago. Had too many of them and not enough time to do anything with them. Just picked up a PIII to replace my fileserver.

Hmm, my first computer was an AMD K6 450 (Compaq Presario 5440, the reason why I wouldn't do my life all over again), I'll shut up now.I used to like PC's then I got a mac. Then I forgot how to use PC's and I feel stupider. I think its time to brush up on my computer skills.

We gave our old 133 to my grandparents, though I think they are a bit scared to use it, so it just sits there...
