Because I have a Pentium II and core i5 laptops (CPUs that were successful). My desktop uses AMD. My only Pentium 4 rig has been dead for a few years. Also, why do you post this thread every day?

I use one for my kitchen PC which i watch videos on while doing dishes, cooking, etc.

It can't handle youtube videos past 480p even with a dedicated graphics card.
>>
>>52335721
because the Pentium 4 was so great it didn't need to evolve any further :^)

Pentium II master race!

I had a Pentium II 450 but I broke it somehow because I tried to transplant the processor into a Slot 1 Celeron machine. I still have my Slot A Athlon though.

Combine with Windows 95 for Superior Performance

>>52337113
Combine with Windows 95 for Literally No Drivers with this Mobile Chipset. It does feel kind of slow with 98 for some reason compared to NT/2000/XP.
>>
>>52337135

Haha yea fuck 95. i got NT as well
>>
>>52337135
Actually never mind, I think there WERE some 95 drivers but the site is down so can't use drivers besides the ones I saved. The machine multi tasks really well though.

my pentium 4 just needs a fresh install of xp or win2k.

i have no real need for it so it can wait.

remind me, what is the use for old machines that can only run office apps and do light internet browsing?

nostalgia is reason enough but outside of that. why do we want to use old p4 machines when our current i5/i7 machines work just as well and better?
>>
>>52337729
As an additional PC in another room to do stuff. Like i said in another post, i use mine in a kind of HTPC format in my kitchen to watch videos on.

Although, only reason i use it and not something newer is because it was practically free. If you have access to other things, i'd use it.

Unlike old 386, 486, PII or PIII hardware, there's not even any reason to use these things for running older OS's,. because there's no advantage behind it. Pretty much any XP game will run fine on W7, and XP will run fine on any new CPU. Where as a Dos, 3.1, Win95 or Win98 system needs older hardware to work.

I actually got that P4 to run Windows 95 and 98 on, not realizing that it'd actually be too new to run well.

>remind me, what is the use for old machines that can only do [useful things]
???

P4s make good file archivers and legacy service boxes for shit that has a real niche since XP is capable of running 16-bit software, particularly shit like driver/boot disk auto-writers, but if you aren't looking into that kind of shit or have no interest in old hardware/software in general then nobody's making you use one desu
>>
>>52329294
I use one as a hotplate.
>>
>>52329294
Cause I'm using the i3 right now, which doesn't constantly overheat

most P4s aren't any hotter than new chips desu, they're just woefully inefficient with what they do use
