I use a 90 MHz Pentium and examined my choices. I think I would hardly feel
any improvement from anything below a 200 MHz MMX CPU. But other, cheaper
improvements might have a tremendous effect:

Up to now my Win 3.11 installation is stored on my Netware 3.11 server. But in
recent years disk drives got much faster than the 1 MB/s maxiumum of 10 Mb/s
Ethernet. More RAM might even help while you not get any real shortage.
