I'll second that and I know of many people that will also vote along. 
This computer (girlfriend's Win98) has a Cyrix chip on it and we have
been told by more than one person that is bad.  It is supposed to be a
300 MHz computer, but when she tries to run a game that requires a 233
MHz processor, the game crashes back to the desktop with no warning.

I'm going to be getting a new computer sometime this summer (I'll be
keeping my current Win3.11 machine though just to play around on) and I
am looking at a computer with an AMD Duron chip.
