Here's a pic my friends and I once took on a LOLler coaster... I'm the only non-asian in the pic.

So, let's see...$99 every two years, it's what...10 years since that computer was sold? So that's...$495 and you can trade it in for the "latest model." :p

Oooh...66mhz bus,

thank god for that 56k modem.... 33.6k is just too damn slow...

also, I never had any pc even remotely close to that config, infact I can't remember them being made @ 566mhz...
I went from

486DX 66 mhz (with awesome co-processor) => Pentium 200 Mhz (With AWESOME MMX technology)=> Pentium 3 900 Mhz => PIV Dualcore 2.2 Ghz

We should have a "your computer history" thread :lol:

SEGA PC, Mac 512K, Mac Plus, Mac Classic, 486SX33, 486DX100 (Pentium Overdrive - remember those?), Pentium 150, P3 933, Core Duo 2.2

Plus the dozens and dozens of different one I used through uni and work

386SL 25 MHz --> Pentium 133 MHz --> P4 2.4 GHz --> A64 3800+ (2.4 GHz) --> C2D E8400 (3.0 GHz dual core)

I have vowed to never again make a transition last as long as the P1->P4 one did. Using a P133 in 2002 was not fun. :|

I saw that as a kid, what did that button do?
it halves your processor speed, so you can play older games that would otherwise run too quickly...

Mine went from 66=>33 Mhz if you turned it off...
I used it exactly 2 times in the many years I owned my first PC...

Still, having "turbo" written on your PC is cool any time

Hmm, on mine it went from 66 to 8; never really pushed it except when I was in the "what do these buttons do?" phase of ownership.
