OK, we've had the "old and busted" thread, time for the "new hotness".

My current home computer is a 17" flat screen 800MHz G4 iMac (the iLamp). Not two months after I bought it (in '02) they upgraded it and dropped the price. Ah, such is technology.

I'd love something new (2GHz+ would be nice. They sure have gotten faaaast in just under 3 years.), but this baby's holding up nicely. Plus, I hate the design of the G5 iMacs.

I think my current computer belong in the 'old and busted' category

P3 450MHz, 512Mb RAM, MX440 vid 17" CRT
Your basic steam powered desktop

My work computer is a 3.2Gig P4, 1Gb RAM, X300 Dell with twin 17" LCD's.

I'm looking at buying soemthing similar for home, but with a beefier video card and more HDD.

Also have a Toshiba Satelite laptop with a Celery 700Mhz, 168Mb RAM and a HP Ipaq with a PXA255 and 64Mb RAM

Also a PS2 and a NES to cover off on the consoles

Hand-crafted, featuring an AMD Athlon 1600+ XP, 512 MB RAM, HP dual-layer, LightScribe-capable DVD+RW. Snagged a 21" monitor for $14 so I'm using that, slapped an 802.11b card in and it's not working, but the motherboard has an onboard NIC, so that's fine. Onboard graphics and sound, too, but I had to add in USB 2.0 and FireWire. Motherboard just had USB 1.1.

The rapidly dying desktop is a P3 800MHz, 384 Mb RAM, 80Mb HD, 17" CRT. I hope to replace it before the end of the year.

The laptop is a Dell XPS with a 3.4GHz P4, 512Mb RAM, Radeon 9700 Mobility, and a 60Mb HD.

I have a Dell. It is black. It works fine. I can look at porn with it.

That is all I know.

My seemingly old etower667ir seems to work at home for what I want it to do.

It says it is a celeron processor with 666 CPS and 330 Meg of ram. I only know it axes the hell out of my poker site.

800 MHz eMac G4, running OS 10.4.2. I just installed some extra RAM, bringing me up to 768 MB, so it should be good for another couple years.

I have an hp pavilion 521n which has a 1.40GHz AMD Athlon XP processor and 248mb of RAM. it's 3 years old and has been getting pretty slow on me lately. everything is stock. the only thing i've added is a firewire/USB combo card...which has been causing me alot of problems lately, so I may have to re-install that. i've been tempted to reformat but need to find a way to take care of my 27GB mp3 collection (I only have a 50GB HD). Maybe invest in a new internal HD.

NOW...,since the on above is down, it is probably on it's death beat I'm using a HP P3 Laptop 750Mhz chip, 256MB of ram, DVD Rom, and 1.1 USB. I'm planning on investing on NEW desktop or laptop sooner than later.
