    Sorry but the problems started with the 75 series and continued into the 60 series. Not much has been heard about the 120 series though but I do hear that they are extremely hard to sell and that 333hr p/m operating time can't be helping either. No wonder IBM sold that part of the business off to the Chinese. :smokin:

    But atm the HDD would have to be the biggest bottleneck with the modern PC as everything else has to wait for it. ;)

    Actually no I haven't. Did you make that up or is it real. I could have sworn the 486 after comming out with the DX over the SX came out with 4 of them. And the DX4 was the 120MHz. Becuase when the 120 was already outperforming the early pentium's. 200MHz is alot and it took a while for pentium's to hit that speed.
