Just get a 604e/180 Mac running OS-8 and it blows 'em both away.

Anyone out there run a comparison on a Pentium Pro 233 vs a Pentium II
233 ??

Just curious to see the differences....

go PRO; 25% faster....i think 25%. don't really matter cuz the pros
are faster (just not sure by how much, gimmie a day and i'll look it up
if ya want the specs).

Cool quote. Wrong information. Pro is 25% faster than Pentium, not
PII, and then only when running fully 32bit Code.

1. There is no such thing as a PPro 233.

2. The PII can use a 440LX motherboard with AGP and SDRAM.

3. Get a PII.

Ha. The hardware will continue to be around as long as Bill G continues
to bail them out.

wrong, wrong, wrong.
intels own test (iCOMP index ver2.0)

CHIP: Mhz :RATING
----+-----+---
PII : 300 :332
PII : 266 :303
PII : 233 :267
PRO : 200 :220
PMMX: 233 :203
PMMX: 200 :182
PMMX: 166 :160
P : 200 :142
P : 166 :127

more is BETTER!

Whoah, I just (re)read my post and I must say that my attitude SUCKED.
Sorry! must have been channeling Joseph Maas last night.

BTW the figures are correct, and if he/she wants to go above 200 then
the PII is the ONLY option.

FALSE!

TRUE!

TRUE!

> 3. Get a PII.
If he/she is going to get a 200mhz chip, then get the pro if going
faster it's not an issue cuz there aren't pros w/ a clock speed above
200.
