| 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.

| 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. |

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.

| 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. |
