The ICT 1301 Resurrection Project.

Comparing the computers we use.

** Vintage - Old and New compared **

To run this project we use computers from all
periods, so apart from flossie at over 47 years old,
I also use a Husky Hunter 16, Vintage 1988 (ish)
and have used a pocket PC, Vintage 2003
Along with various laptops, and other Standard Desktop PC's.

Here is a comparison for you to see the relative powers of some of the computers
