    And I'm currently typing from it. The specs gave me deep belly laughs. @Margen67
    512MB RAM :shit::shit::shit:
    60GB HDD :shit::shit::shit::shit::shit:
    2 USB Ports :shit::shit::shit::shit:
    Some old CPU (dual-core @ 1.6 GHz each :shit::shit:

    And this used to be a high-end machine... :rofl2:

    Also the hard drive died so I'm on Linux. Which is why it runs at least decent.
    (All the emoticons I put in this literally almost crashed the computer... :wink:)

    No... I dont think it was an accidental triple post, with more than one minute elapsed between each of them

    It's old but still perfect for anything outside of gaming. I remember my 133mhz processor, 500mb hard drive, 32mb ram.

    XP is the only Windows I like now (besides Vista)

    That system was win95

    XP was very good, however, you have to go win10 if you want the latest directX... I still run win7 on my computer.

    2 USB ports? That's the same amount I have on my $900 MacBook Air.

    Man, Apple is cheap sometimes.
