LOL you win. The oldest computer I used was this tandy we had from my mom's work. She worked for tandy in ft. worth so we got a free tandy computer. I have no idea what the specs were and I think it just used dos, or whatever the dos equivalent was.

I was in junior high at the time and had no money and no way of describing what I needed to my parents. I found a solution though. I was able to underclock my AMD from 333mhz to 233mhz and it ran stable!
That trick won't work in this day and age But you already knew that, right?

Welcome!
