Depends on what games you want to play on it. Doom and Quake will run fine, Quake II might suffer a bit of framerate loss, but if you want to play Unreal Tournament or Counter-Strike you'll need to turn down some of the graphics.

Well that's, like, you're opinion man. Also, it could have just been a really used and worn thinkpad.

>>559975435
Trackpoints are actually a little more ergonomic because the distance between the trackpoint and clicker fit most people's hands better

>>559959760
AS PC's go the Dell optiplex was a great system.

A 233Mhx pentium was able to be upgraded all the way up to an athelon before one had to replace the power supply. But it is far beyond 2001 now and probably worth investing a bit of time to find modern hardware try googling Tom's hardware unless you are a troll!
>>
>>559975212
i had the 60 and the 120. blindingly fast for the time, everyone was still on 486. the look on the other nerds faces when i was like, well i got a pentium. mmm priceless. those smug pricks. but yeah, worst pentium ever, since first is usually worst.

I'm about to leave you guys to it. Just out of curiosity though, did you hijack this thread or am I missing a chickun in the OP? OR does namesync even work in the catalog/Frontpage?
