They use 10Base-T, so it was the network at fualt also. But you have to
think about a computer with a beta bus of 200MHz. It screams. it also
The PCs were all Dell 166 Pent.

The processor bare sold directly from IBM is about (300MHz) $789 so Apple
realy does have cheep prices when you look at the prices of the processor.
Do a search for bytemark testing. So far they've only published tests with
a Pent 333 against a 233MHz G3.
Apple Just releases G3 333 with faster bus. 233MHz discontinued becasue it
was too slow. Motorola just released 366MHz And using 1.9volt supply,
these make perfect laptop processors.
The G3 366 gets performance over 671 MIPS.
Web Cams show interest of iMac at several retail stores.
Since the 10th apple has sold over 150,000 iMacs.
