Pick the selection that best describes your computer.


P4 2.0 gig, 512 MB DDR Ram, 120 Gig HD, GeForce 4 128 MB DDR w/Video In/Out, ...

Then I have two outdated machines. One of which is running Linux :).

Well, I wouldn't actually call it "top of the line" - it was probably obsolete before I even put it together. But it IS less than 3 years old.  And at least it doesn't have any "do not remove" stickers  :-P .

512mb SDRAM

And the rest of the usuals...

The only bad thing is that the laptop is blue.  It looks iMAC-ish, but is a horse.  I keep wanting to put a big sign on it saying that I didn't buy it cause it was blue.   :-)

My computer is a mixed breed.  I originally purchased the cpu from a catalog.  I've added ram, an additional hard disk, upgraded the video card, and added an external zip drive.  Here's the current specs.

Athlon 800 mhz
256 mb SDRAM
30 gig 5400 rpm
40 gig 7200 rpm
ATI All in wonder Radeon 32 mb
basic sound card, ethernet, modem, cdrw

It might not be the fastest, but she still runs.

All of my heavy computing is performed on my Commodore 128.

Multiple IDEs adding up to ~150 GB

Runs FreeBSD 4.6 and Win2K (only for games and application testing).
