I currently have a 486/33 with 8MB ram and a Portrait 15 Plus
(rotating color) display with an Orchid display card. I am in line
to receive a Pentium one of these days, but until that time (which
is likely later this year) I will receive additional RAM (at least
up to 16, more likely 24). I usually don't have problems with speed,
except that I could work faster than allowed <grin>. Unfortunately,
the programmers get higher priority than I do. But I must admit, I
also have higher priority than our tech support folks, so I can't
complain too much! As a side note, one of our programmers was doing
some help file creation stuff (documenting C++ classes and all) and
was using my tools (Doc-To-Help) and he now agrees that I would be
infinitely more productive with a faster machine. Sigh... some day
