    I remember our school lab getting Classics. We were amazed, no more green monochrome AppleIIes! Wow! You could actually change text color and font with this thing -- and what kind of disc do you put in there?! :D

    I need to find a digital cam to take some pics. I have a veritable museum of computers and parts over here.

    Slowest I've used recently was a 286.

    Still have a 486DX2/550MB hdd/36MB Ram that i can go online with. Use it for mp3 file server and mp3 playback.

    At work I have a 75mhz running win95 as a print server in the laboratory. Works really well! Can't remember the last time it was rebooted. It might be a good candidate for the uptime team :D
