Default My school

We just got xp pro on our schools computers and i think they are something like 266mhz and about 64 megs of ram. Even typing has a bit of a delay sometimes.

the computers at your school could afford to get Windows XP Pro for their PC's but could not afford to upgrade to at least 128MB RAM? isn't the requirements for Windows XP Pro 256MB?

My parents PII450 ran XP with 128 megs of ram. It sucked, so I upgraded to 256 for them. It's better, but still sucks (most likely cause of the processor.
