What Computer You Runnin' On?

27 posts in this topic

I'm about to get a brand new Dell 5100. I'm so excited. It's going to have a CD/DVD burner and the best sound system Dell offers. I'm psyched.

Custom bulit... Marcia's brother put it togeather. The case is from a late 90s Gateway but the guts are all 1 or 2 years old. It's runing an Athalon processor... other than that I'm clueless. Used to be pretty computer literate but I just don;t give a F anymore. Not my passion like cars. BTW: I will never buy another IBM/comp. again. I want to get back to Macs. Nothing like a good solid Mac. the G4s I used in College ran flawlessly.

I have an Acer Travelmate 8104. So far it's a great machine. The speakers are terrible, but I brought external ones.

Me... Why I have the fastest and most reliable computer you've ever seen. It's a 6 year old Gateway Essential with Windows 98, Pentium III processor, CD drive, and a 15" moniter!!! It's so so so so so so so so fast!!! Edited by blackviper8891

I have a 17in LCD flat panel monitor with an E machines processor with processing speeds I have no clue of nor anything else. However I do know that the speakers are playing Green Day and they sound pretty damn good. I got this earlier in the year after my 7 year old HP died.

Just upgraded from a '99 G3 to a Dell... whatever it is this spring. Took me about 6 months to get used to the Dell/ non-MAC interface- I worked on MACs daily for numerous years. I'd love a G4 but I cannot advocate the price tag at the moment.

Custom-built desktop PC. - P4 2.4GHz - 1 GB 400MHZ DDR RAM - nVidia ti4200 w/ 128mb RAM - combined 200 GB HD storage - 5.1 speakers - Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Value sound card - 19" Dell LCD display - DVD+/-RW drive. It's about due for a video upgrade. Processor can go another couple years. At that point I'll probably build an all-new system based on the Shuttle "barebones" system design (much smaller PC case).

Canadian made: MDG, locally assembled and sold. Bought three years ago, then just spent $800 (don't ask!) upgrading it last month . Never, ever use Future Shop for anything, boys and girls! They started the SIMPLE project of adding 512mb of RAM, putting in a new video card and adding a DVD burner, charging me $550 to do that, then I had to pay a guy over $200 to wipe the computer completely and reinstall everything because whatever Future Shop did buggered up the system. Then, of course, I had to spend another !00 on a new modem and network card because I couldn't find the original discs from three years ago and the old modem is "no longer supported." Frankly, if the auto industry was the same as the computer industry, we'd all be riding in horse and buggies because they would be more reliable. Anyway, P4, 1.7ghz, 768mb DDR RAM, Radion ATI 9550, 80gig hard drive, 19 CRT monitor (it is ugly and huge!) I just want to get another couple years out of it then I will buy a laptop.

For that price, I'd rather get a brand new computer. Probably would cost you less. At least you have the keyboard, mouse and monitor, you just need the system unit.

  • Office Desktop: Dell Dimension 4600 w/ 19" flat panel LCD
  • Office Laptop: Apple PowerBook G4 15"
  • Home Desktop: Apple iMac G5 17"
I swore I would never touch a goofy Apple, until my Ph.D. advisor used some fellowship $ to get me the PowerBook. It's cool, so I figured I'de replace the 7 year old Gateway with the iMac.

Oh, I forgot to add that we blew up my old PC with a half stick of dynamite about a month ago. I attempted to record the destruction, however I was not about to stand close enough for the thing to throw shrapnel at me.

I custom built mine about a year ago. I never built one prior so I had to do a ton of research beforehand but it was worth it. It's been rock solid. Athlon 3000 1.5G memory I don't know the other specs - mobo, video card, etc. I'd have to dig them up.
