Hmm.  Dunno.  I'd say x86, and cite a few examples, but I think I'd get

Pentium-IV.  They lack the balls to do anything at speeds lower than

Windows XP.  All the instability of any previous Windows, and all the

Packard Bell towers circa 1995.  All plastic outer skins, with goofy 
compartments, and metal braces in the most inconvenient of places.
