My Dad is wanting to sell his HP Pavilion 8575C Pentium 3 computer, with 384 MB ram. Circa, 1998.

He's wanting $100, with CRT monitor (17"), keyboard, speakers, and a kindof dated HP inkjet printer, I think a 720C...or something in that area.

It has Windows 98 second edition 4.10.2222.A

A pontential buyer wants to know if this will support an operating system upgrade to a higher level... I guess 2000, or XP.

Please give us some thoughts on this....

Thanks! I'm not real upgrade smart, so please be kind.... :)

The hardware specifications site on that desktop indicate that it has an Intel Pentium III 550 MHz processor and supports a maximum of 384 MB of RAM(and has already been maxed out on RAM, according to your first sentence).

If you look at my signature, you'll see that I'm running Windows XP on a Compaq Presario 5900T with an Intel Pentium III 733 MHz processor and 384 MB of RAM. As long as I use it for basic computing, it runs fine. If I put too much of a graphic or memory load on it, it displays noticable lag time. Your computer is almost 200 MHz slower than mine, so I wouldn't recommend upgrading to Windows XP. That computer will handle Windows 98SE or Windows ME just fine.
