A 233 I'd probably still keep, personally. (I run a library computer lab
and we replaced some Pentium 120's with new Pentium III 600's, via a
grant. The 120's went to another campus lab, where they are going to
replace some 486's) The P120's (and the 486's) still *work*, they're just
slow in dealing with some of the fancy web pages that people want to look
