I'm using a P120 laptop from Fujitsu to do paper manuals in MS Word and
online help with MS Word and HDK. It feels quite speedy to me. I might
feel differently if I were doing heavy-duty Photoshop work, but I save
that stuff for my PowerMac 8500.

Mitch Berg made reference to his P100 home PC. I'm now in the market for
a
new machine myself, and as usual the older technology is vastly less
expensive than top of the line. 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?
