I'm a software engineer by vocation and a writer by avocation, and I do
both happily at home on my 486. IMO anything faster than a 386 is
powerful enough for most applications, certainly for word-processing and
html development. If you're interested in working with multimedia
development on the web, videos and such, you may want to get the fastest
machine you can afford; other than that, I'd say get a souped-up 486 or a
behind-the-curve pentium.

Is the performance of a Pentium 120 or 133 still adequate for tech writing tasks, such as help or web page development, or CBT applications?
