As stated-- every enthuiast has a pentium classic somewhere in their grasp, do you use it ? keep it around as a trophy piece ?

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.

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

Speaking of first PC's....Mine was an IBM ps/1 386 sx 25Mhz with 2 Megs of ram on the MB. I purchased a 2MB upgrade chip for it and thought I was all that cause I had 4 Megs of memory to go along with my 40 MB hard drive. BTW...the memory chip was $200. Talk about times changing...
