At my work, someone has one of these 150mhz beige clow pokes, what can be done to upgrade it? Which processor upgrades are available? How much RAM does it take? What kind of Hard Drive?

Thanks in advance for any help I receive!

In Christ,
Deacon Nikolai

You didn't mention if it is a S900 or J700, etc....
The last round of S900 towers were actually sold with Newer Tech G3 upgrades and whoever had the Umax before you probably just returned the original processor and kept the upgrade for another machine, or sold seprately, etc.
Newer is gone but Sonnet and XLR8 still make G3 and G4 upgrades and now XLR8 has a DUAL G4 upgrade! So, do some research, you can still get some great performance out of that legacy machine.
