I will say that too, as my only machine between February and
September of this year was a P120 (admittedly with 72Mb of RAM), and
I never noticed any particularly slow spots on that. I still wind it

What's another 64Mb of RAM worth in Taiwan these days? If you can
stop that swapping, your machine will fly compared with how it
performs today.
