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.

My mom says sigs are bad for you.

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

I use dial-up mode, but I won't be able to remember what day I was WOTD every time I see one of my posts and I can't ask the boss because *he* won't tell me. ;)

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.

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.

Was 2000 AOpen Custom PC with 600mhz P3 Processor, 384MB of Ram, 20GB and 100GB dual drives, CDR/RW and DVD Rom, ATI Voodo 32MB display card, 32MB Crystal Audio, and two 1.1 USB ports.

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.

Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop; 1.8GHZ Celeron processor; 200GB HD (upgraded from 80GB) 4GB Ram (upgraded from 1GB) and a 15-something inch display.

Currently running a dual boot (Windows XP Home and Ubuntu); was preloaded with Vista, but got rid of that quickly after the first bootup froze up on me.

Old Dell laptop at home, don't know any details offhand.

Lenovo S10 netbook at school. I'm not much of a computer guy so I don't know all the specs. The screen is 10" diagonal widescreen, but I've got this badass little machine hooked up to a 19 inch monitor on a fully adjustable arm. And I can still unplug to take it into the lab, classes, and meetings. This whole setup is the best $500 I've ever spent.

It's a Dell flat-screen desktop (don't know the details) that I got right before my first year of college, which would've been 2003. The thing is on the fritz and I'm looking at getting a laptop, hopefully before the new school year starts in late August...anyone have any suggestions (within the monetary constraints of a grad student)?

That's pretty much what I have as the house file/print server - without the DVD burners. I also had to add a USB 2.0, firewire card, a faster Ethernet card, and a second hard drive. The monitor is either the television (until I run an Ethernet cable to my desk) or remote desktop.

My main computer is a 15" MacBook Pro, 2.5 gH Intel Dual Core. I love it so much I could marry it (maybe not in California).

We all have ways of coping. I use sex and awesomeness.
