The CPU won't be the bottleneck ... once you've found the PCMCIA SCISI
card which will allow you to use the scanner, the bottleneck will probably
prove to be your RAM ... not so much for scanning, but rather taking full
advantage of the 4000ppi resolution any any attempt at post-editing.
However ... I see the primary problem being the display. Its quality is
way below the color capabilities of the scanner.
