What Kind Of Computer Have You Got?

Sun Feb 25, 2007 10:19 pm

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!

RE: What Kind Of Computer Have You Got?

Mon Feb 26, 2007 1:42 am

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.

I got rid of my iMac 2.0gHz when I went to college, and bought a new MacBook. Total crap, if you ask me. I should've gotten the Pro, and/or never gotten rid of the iMac. I've installed Windows XP Pro on it, and unfortunately that has been it's most redeeming quality, aside from the great battery life. I'll be getting the MacBook Pro when the new OSX comes out.

"Total crap" would need to be qualified when you're looking at the MacBook Pro instead... For me the much larger screen resolution was the primary factor and I'm more than content with it, but most of the other featues are quite similar to those of the smaller MacBook, as are those of the current iMacs.

Right now, a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 8500 laptop...it sucks and is dying a slow, painful death, so a week ago I put in an order for a Toshiba Satellite U200 with these specs:

Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7200 (2.00GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB), Genuine Windows Vista™ Home Premium 32-Bit, Mist Gray, Microsoft® Office Basic 2007, 2048MB PC5300 DDR2 667MHz SDRAM (1024MBx2), 12.1" Diagonal Widescreen XGA TruBrite™ display (1280x800), Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950, 100GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial-ATA), DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) drive, Intel® PRO/Wireless LAN 3945ABG (802.11a/b/g), Bluetooth® Version 2.0 +EDR

Lookin forward to her arrival sometime this coming week I hope!

Thank you Klaus, I know. I wanted a larger screen, faster processor and larger hard drive, but didn't want to pay for it. I never thought it would be as big a deal as it has become, either. Granted, I know I can use an external hard drive, but that negates the fact that I purchased this for portability. I wanted to save money, and in the end I paid the price for it. Also, to clarify my "total crap" statement, it is not the software, but more the body of the MacBook. It scratches very easily, and I'm extremely careful with my computers. I've had the plastic casing around the screen come loose more than once, the battery overheat, the track pad button stick, and the track pad cease working on various occasions. This, in addition to the CD drive being excessively loud when compared to my friend's MacBook of identical specs as well. These problems- and more- have been easily fixed by the Apple Store, but to have to drive as far as I do (to the nearest one, in Orlando), or ship it to Apple as often as I must, is a bit insane.

Yeah, it sounds like the Pro model would serve you better then, at the corresponding price; Your MacBook may have been a monday morning example, but even an aluminium case can scratch if bumped around. Which I don't do - it never leaves home without its protective sleeve, even when carried in my briefcase.

For me it's as near-perfect as a machine can be with today's technology, but needs, usage patterns, preferences and priorities will vary...

The first computer I ever saw (well, I didn't really know what it was at the time) was a paper tape controlled machine for plotting gunnery curves. That was around 1956 and I was what-8 years old?

The second one was an IBM 34 I think. It had a Priest and an air conditioned Temple. One did not ask the Oracle. One asked the Priest to Intercede with the Oracle and perhaps you might get some totally inscrutable Answer to a question you hadn't Asked.

The next one was in the shop where I was doing engine runs and repairs. The drill was to do a ten point run on the dynamometer truck and take data. Then, one could use a hand held calculator and run equations all afternoon. The Hot Setup from Phoenix was a TI Programmable caclulator with a pack of magnetic strips. Once the calculator was programmed correctly, the data was inputted and in about two and a half hours you'd have some figures.

A guy in the shop had an Apple II and a dot matrix printer. One day, he brought it to work, programmed it to run the same calculations and pronounced it Good. From the time the data was inputted until the printer started running was about thirty seconds.

At that time, I thought "Everything's changed." I didn't know how big everything was going to become. My first computer was a Mac II VX, bought in 1992 and it ran until 2000 with one battery on the motherboard and one OS reload.

Yeah, what he said. I use it as my day-to-day work/fun/whatever machine.


My fileserver/tinkering box is a 3.2 GHz Intel P4 with 2GB of RAM and about 300GB split between two drives. It was smokin' when I built it, but has since been surpassed by dual-core machines. It runs Fedora Linux and hasn't been rebooted in... lessee here... 182 days. Time for an OS upgrade on that one, though.

RE: What Kind Of Computer Have You Got?

Tue Feb 27, 2007 5:51 am

I have the DELL Inspiron E1505 notebook. 100 GB hard drive 512 MB Memory. I bought this computer in May '06 with the best graphics card Dell offered at the time. However, when I performed a system scan to check if I had everything to run Vista Home Premium, it said that my video card wasn't high enough. That really pissed me off. So when I go home this summer, guess what I'm going to get???

Sorry, no. But if you're considering a machine on that level, I'd get something solid anyway...!

MacBook Pro 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo 17" - an absolutely great machine.
This 'replaced' a trustworthy 400 MHz G4 Power Mac I had used since '99 or so.

My first computer was a 16 Mhz Mac LC, bought in 1991. It was the lowest cost color Mac. It shipped with OS 6, I believe. It had 2 MB RAM; topped out at 10 MB. I recall splurging and getting the 40 MB hard drive. It cost a bit over $1,700 without a monitor.

I have a 20" iMac Core 2 Duo, and a Core 2 Duo BlackBook.

I wanted a 24" iMac but I just don't think it would have fit on my desk nearly as well.

I have a Dell Inspiron 600m that I got in 2004 and needs stuff done. Luckily, I have it under warranty till July and will be making some fixes, mostly relating to my network card which is a POS. Also, I just replaced my hard drive, which crapped out.
