One of my machines is a Pentium Pro 150, clocked to 180mhz. This cost me
320quid [thats english sterling] [480ish dollars?]. This will do a
sustained 300,500 keys a sec. If you can still get hold of them they are an
absolute bargain.

Oh BTW.... that 320quid also included a motherboard (as well as the cpu).

Cheers.
