Dell gx100 or something like that
350mhz p2
384mb ram
3.8gb hd
built in sound and graphics and Lan
CD (that can't read burnt cd's)
Win 95 upgraded to 98 as soon as I got it.

Funny thing is I just bought it like 2 months ago and it works great for playing Star Wars Rebellion and surfing the net which is all I do anymore. Though I decided to upgrade for some reason and spent $220 to get a xp2900, mobo, dvdrw, case, 512mb ram, reuse hard drives.
