Still '486 for the most part, 12 years ago. Pentiums were just coming out.
I still have two DEC Pentium 60 boxes from early 1993:
P-60 (with FP error)
72 MB RAM (72-pin FPM parity)
Adaptec SCSI card
1 - 1 GB SCSI drive (FH 5.25")
3COM 10Base2 NIC
16 serial ports
Those two machines still run fine, BTW.
