A 300 mhz provides a good balance of windows and dos capability.

Outside of ancient CGA/TGA games that I play on a Tandy 1000HX, I stick to a 486/66VLB or my pentium 200MMX. I retired my 386/40 and will probably use it for old Apps and programming. Never seen a reason to use a 286 so I don't have one.
