At work I run E on a celeron 300 with 64Mb and usually have Star Office,
two windows of Netscape and an Xterm running at the same time. I have
noticed no major problems. In fact, I would say that it is at least as
fast as the win2000 celerons running just Netscape. Loading the programs
is the only slow part.
Stay well and happy
PS with 256Mb PC133 RAM selling at $77 today at North Rocks, why not
just add a little memory?
