Re: What's your computer?

It's a machine that enables me to write without corretion fluid, print letters in colour, use the internet and log on to the forum

1 brand new HP centrino laptop, 1 old banged up Compaq laptop for storage and a Dell desktop to use up every square inch of my former dining table

Your geek mode satisfied

Crazed Re: What's your computer?

A bitsa on a Mesh frame with an ancient Athlon 900 processor. The graphics card is so crap I'm even using a 600*800 display otherwise the screen flickers
But I've got a Microsoft Elite keyboard with Bluetooth

A bit like fitting a straight cut racing box in an Arna!

Re: What's your computer?

Curently running on IBM laptop, but the next one has to be a powerbook. I think I fall in love in mac design and the ease of use of it.

Re: What's your computer?

I've got 4 desktops at home - 2 for my kids, 1 for my wife and my own (pic below) all I built myself - it is very easy once you've done one !

Also use an old IBM P3 machine linked to my hifi to play all my mp3's

Re: What's your computer?

For AO, it would be the one at work (IBM ThinkCentre).


At home, I have an old Advent (PC World special ), running a 450MHz Intel Pentium III, and a hand-built PC running a 1.7GHz Intel Celeron (components from Dabs.com).

Oh yes, I also have an ancient Fujitsu laptop running a Pentium I , and an Apple Mac LC475.

Re: What's your computer?

Never use anything other than a Pentium. Still the most reliable non Mac processor there is. I blooody hate Bill Gates and Microsoft and anything PC but I can't afford a forking Mac so build my own PC's making sure I select the best there is and never pay for anything with the Microsoft label.

LONG LIVE PIRATING!!!!!!!!!! Booooo to Bill Gates!!!!!!

Re: What's your computer?

Erm... you need to take one off the mac list and add it to the AMD from a shop list. I had a slight clicking error.

Correct.


I have a Shuttle SN41G2 with nVidia nForce2 mobo; not very exciting or rare these days! Next PC is likely to be a Mac lappy when the prices on the old G series crash as the Intel based computers are released. Have you seen the screens on those lappies? Something to behold, believe me.

Re: What's your computer?

I have one of each, Intel and AMD.
Both built by myself.
The intel is getting on a bit, it is a P4 2.4 MHz, with 1 Gb RAM, Radion 9600 AGP , 120 GB HDD, and some other cool cards.
The AMD is brand new . 1 GB RAM, Nvidia 6600 PCI Express , 2 x 120 GByte smartserial HDD, and some more cool features
Both connect to each other at 1Gb, which makes gaming great !!!.
Force feedback steering wheels on both machines........online racing with Need for Speed Underground is a hoot !
The intel machine is used for video processing etc. , the AMD purely for games.

Forgot. I also have another P3 Intel with Linux, as a learning tool, and a Dell lattitude 610 for work.

Re: What's your computer?

My PC was an AMD 3200. I say 'was' because it blew up last week. There was smoke and sparks and everything. I nearly shat myself.
