up until about 3 years ago i had an AST ( yeah u know its old) pc with pentium 90mhz (yes its an M not a typo), 800mg hd, 64mb ram, 8x cdrom. and it was actually in use as a storage bin like for mp3's and the like. till it finally just stopped turning on. and it ran windows 95 with no problems. its amazing how much MORE it takes now JUST TO RUN WINDOWS.
