Those of us who got into computers in the 90’s were driven batty by the advances in chips and other hardware. My 1993 486 was obsolete within a year. Nowadays, the advance in speed has slowed, and five-year-old hardware is still relevant. In fact, if you’ll install an easy-to-use Linux distro like Mint, that old machine will run like it’s brand new. Give me a holler if you want to give it a go. I’ve been happily running Linux for 12 years and counting.
