Was just wondering what kind of computers have you got?

In the house here we have an Advent 7113 Laptop, a Macbook, Compaq laptop and Packard Bell desktop.

So, what computers have you got in the house and what do you use at work?

The current laptop I am using is my mothers, it's a Toshiba; 15 inch screen, but I'm not sure of the specs and although it isn't the quickest, but it certainly does the job.

- My own computer is a Dell; 21 inch TFT screen; Intel Duo 2.67Ghz duel core processor; 4096mb ram; 256NVida graphics card and about 700Gb or hard drives in total.
- My laptop is a Hewlett Packard; 17 inch screen; 30Gb hard drive, but off the top of my head I'm not sure of the other specifications, very quick though and I believe it's duel core, just not sure which processor.
- The home PC has a 17 inch TFT screen; 1024mb ram; 80Gb hard drive; Pentium 4 processor, but was taken out by a lightening strike, so it's still being mended currently.
- Old laptop, from EI Systems; 17 inch TFT screen; Intel Celeron D processor; 512mb ram; 40Gb hard drive.

Plus loads of other hard drives, readers and bits and pieces; printers, scanners etc... I have a pic or two on my profile of some of my machines, most of which run like a dream!

Me too. I would never own a desktop or server that I hadn't built myself. Having said that, here are some of the component manufactuers I prefer:

Asus mainboards
Nvidia video
Intel and AMD processors
Corsair RAM
Western Digital hard drives
Sony DVD's

I have a HP/Compaq laptop my company provides for me for work, but I'd never buy one of those for myself.

I've got a steam powered Samsung laptop from 2004 which is still working perfectly otherwise I would have given it the boot by now. I believe it's a Centrino 1500mhz, 760mb ram, 80GB hard drive and that's about it. It's an X15 model but in all honesty, I think I'm going to buy a Core2 Duo at some point in 2007.

The Mac Section.

I've got countless other computers belonging to me, the shining jewel of which is my Apple Macintosh II with a Motorola 68020 16Mhz processor, 1Mib of memory, a 40mb hard drive and Mac OS 4. It's quite the black and white beast from 1987! I believe there are a few guys on here with even older Macs? That's cool.

I've also got a wonderful Apple Macintosh Performa 5200 from 1995 with a 75Mhz processor, 8mb of memory which all runs using Mac OS 7.5.1, Then I've got a green iMac from 1998, the original one with the flying saucer type mouse. It's got a 233Mhz G3 Processor, 32mb of memory and a 4GB hard drive which runs Mac OS 9.02. Funnily enough though I only bought those Mac's from 2002 onwards and my first ever Mac actually came in 2000 when I got a brand new snow iMac DV SE. It had the G3 500mhz processor, 128mb of memory although I stuck in 2x PC100 512 sticks to bump it up to the max of 1GB in about 2001. It came with Mac OS 9.04 and bizarrely enough this was the first ever computer I installed Windows XP on using an emulator. Let's just say it ran like a dog! Of course when Mac OS X came out that went straight on there and today while the ole girl is redundant, it still runs one of the later versions, maybe 10.3 Panther, Siamese, American Short hair or whatever designation Apple gave that OS!

I've also got myself a Mini Mac in 2005 although I've only used it twice since then. It's the G4 1.5ghz version. To be honest I've lost total interest in Apple and just see them now as some sort of fashion statement that are about as interesting to use as a washing machine. Once upon a time back in 1996, which was when I first started using them, I found them great but today I find the PC much better to use, especially as a techie.

I also bought myself a 10GB iPod in 2002 whilst in NY. I rarely used it and found the idea of taking around an extra item cumbersome so I gave it away to Hannah in 2004 but she broke it. No real loss to me if the truth is known. I prefer the idea of technology convergence and simply use the MP3 player on my phone. I bumped the 32MB memory card up to 512mb in 2005 and that has done me fine since with an average of 80 songs with me at all times. That phone is going to be replaced this year though just like my laptop! They're just old.

The PC section.

Well we have over twenty PC's including servers and various other antiques. The 'house computer' is actually my old P4, 2.8Ghz with 2GB of memory, 256mb graphics and a 120gb hard drive. That was built in 2003 and is still by today's standard a good machine, I just never use it as I prefer the freedom of having a laptop!

A few extra things to note would be that our main printer is a HP 5MP laser which is well over ten years old and going strong. I find that quite amazing!

A Dell 640M is my main PC at the moment. Thus far I'm really happy with it, it's pretty light, quick and with the optional bigger battery lasts for like 8 hours when off of the grid.
