my uncle has a 1.7ghz and his takes longer to start up and runs a lot slower than my trusty hp vectra PII 350mhz never had any hard ware go wrong nothing its the most reliable computer i have had since my P1 133Mhz which also handles windows fine i think manufacturers are making thing so they break after a certain amount of time these days which is why the old computers work still 100% fine and eg. those old fashoned cookers with the controls on a back board instead of on the front of the hob my uncle has got one that is about 14 years old never had any thing go wrong with it unlike my mother that bought an electric cooker and had to replace it 4 years down the line, still goes strong the saying They Dont Make THings Like They Used To . . .

It's not a pc, but I still have a Tandy TRS80 with 4K (yes, 4K) RAM saving onto music tapes. You had to make at least 10 copies in the hopes of getting one good one.

pentium 11, 300 MHZ (xp home home running on this, and it's no slouch) 128mb ram and 40 gb hd. All built into a video recorder so it doesn't look outta place under tv (modded) and networked to main pc and laptop mainly for storage and playback of mp3's and important business document backup.

my brother has our first PC in his room its a Packard Bell Pentium 120MHz with 16MB RAM and a 1.2GB HDD with a 24x CD-ROM drive...of course its reached the stage where it can turn on but wont boot into Windows 95 so its never been touched really....I did upgrade it a few years back to a Pentium 166 with a 52x CD-ROM drive and a 15" flat screen Sony monitor...now they have a AMD Athlon XP PC with Win XP Home and DVD drive and CD-writer...and I have my own PC which is a beast of a machine which I built meself....my family live in london and I now live in Aberdeen in Scotland.
