Bah! That's nothing. I have a 90 MHz Pentium at home. (:

(I also have a working 16 MHz Apple Powerbook Duo 270 and a
working 32 MHz Powerbook 140 -- ah, the memories... The 140
boots up several times faster than my 400 MHz Windows 2000
laptop at work, and feels more responsive. Alas they cannot
run Erlang (I've tried, but the old '93 vintage Mac port was
too unstable to be useful.)
