What about "I'd finally get a Pentium-II?!?"
I upgraded my Pentium 75 two years ago to a Pentium 133. I still haven't made it to a Pentium-II yet.
in reply to If I were a rich (wo)man...
My system is still running, and I can surf the web reasonably well with my 28.8 modem, as long as someone hasn't decided to make life complicated with too much Java or Flash. When I wander into an internet cafe to see what I'm missing, I usually find that the answer seems to be "I'm missing a bit, but not too much".
One day I'll buy a laptop that overpowers my desktop by a factor of a thousand. So far, my cell phone is losing to my computer, but the gap is closing...
