    Yeah the more I use this computer the more I love it. Its a happy medium between the 8088 and 386, still slow enough to play those classic cga games (with the turbo off) and fast enough to play all the other games I love like the ones in the pics.

    Yeah the more I use this computer the more I love it. Its a happy medium between the 8088 and 386, still slow enough to play those classic cga games (with the turbo off) and fast enough to play all the other games I love like the ones in the pics.
