There are no real advantages. Back then they couldn't fit all the Cache on the chips as easilly, so they used the slots for more RAM...that's what I heard, at least. For the most part, Slot1 is compatable with Socket370.

Slot and Socket varies. Socket I believe transfers data better, although i could be mistaken.

A Slot CPU for example is the Itanium, and the announced Itanium2, a good Socket CPU is the Pentium 4 or Athlon 64. I don't recall any AMD slot CPUs.

I used to have a Slot 1 Pentium III 600Mhz CPU. It was slow, but did what i wanted at the time, which was browse the internet and play music, until I started to game did I require a more demanding CPU and what not.

"Slot" processors didnt need cooling, neither did the motherboards, so you did get a silent PC..!

I actually have a slight vision problem at the moment. Currently my contacts are old and I can not use them for the time being, so it is hard for me to view my posts so I can proof read it once I post it. Infact posting in regular type is very hard to see. I have to get rather close to the monitor to actually view it, which in turn makes the vision even worse, lose-lose scenario . If it's a huge inconvience I'll refrain from it if you want me to. Besides my new contacts should arrive in about a week or so once I get back from California next week.
