366MHz G3 iBook running OS X Panther.
533X Compact Flash card instead of a hard drive.

Showing the Yahoo homepage with ads enabled, so it’s a little slow. Slashdot is mostly text so it loads and scrolls quickly. Wisebread is a site that uses scripts & ads that give me slow load times on older computers unless NoScript is used.
