What are the slowest computers you were ever stuck using?
Looking back I think one of the slowest would have to be when I was in high school, there was one lab left with original iMacs. I'm talking late 90s, early 2000s. They made that noise kind of like erkkk erkkkk they struggled to run Mac OSX 10.4 Tiger. I only used them once I think all the other labs were full that day.
Also one time I had to rewrite a state standardized test essay on an original iBook! It may or may not have has Mac OS9!!! I remember it was loud plugged in and slow it was the light blue color!
For windows PCs gosh hmmm so many. At my local library they have (and they may still have it) an aging Dell Optiplex with an Intel Pentium III for searching the library catalog.
In middle school there was a fire sale on a bunch of 1999 or so Dell computers with Windows 2000 Professional. (I went to Catholic school who didn't have much money in those days) A woman from the public school system visited one day and commented on how old our computers were. My family got a new computer in late 2007 it had 1 GB of RAM so running Windows Vista on it was a chore for awhile until we upgraded to 2 GB of RAM. It did slow down some in those days.
My family's computer in the late 90s-2003 was an Acer desktop from my dads work. I think it was from 1997 had gosh Intel Pentium II or maybe Pentium III. It had Windows 98 SE! It had a cd drive and a floppy disk drive. I don't think it had USB ports but maybe it did. It still booted up and played Janes WWII Fighters Need for Speed III, and Age of Empires II back in the mid 2000s!!
