When I sit down at my computer to make some tunes, there's two things I can do - make some tunes, or flip open a web browser, this forum, twitter, email, and a bazillion other things in the "background". Guess which one I'm doing right now? What you can do with an oldschool computer like that is set it up so that it's strictly music oriented, 100% geared towards doing what you want to do with no distractions. In a way it's more like having a hardware sequencer than a PC, but you still have the benefit of getting to work on a full screen with a full keyboard. So goes the theory anyway.
So to those of you who sequence and write songs on ancient computers, what do you use to record? Hardware recorder or modern DAW?
