    Laptop Pc

    I have been offered a laptop pc pentium 366MHz /64Mb ram / 4Gb HDD etc. My question is: would this configuration be powerful enonough to run Windows XP - or would it be like running though treacle? Your comments will be much appreciated.

    366 MHz is on the slow side for Windows XP; the IT department at the place where I work reckons 400 MHz to be the minimum.
    64 MB RAM is definitively too little - 256 MB should just be OK, and 512 MB is recommended.
    Windows 2000 might be a better OS for this machine, but in that case too, you'd need 256 MB RAM or more.
