What sort of Computer do you have ?

Recommended Posts

I currently use an Apple E-Mac that i have had for 3 years.

I intend to upgrade to a new I-Mac in 2008.

I will stick with Apple all the way.

It must be the Beatles thing.

I have an old Windows ME 2000 (the year) Compaq piece of shit. 40GB and 400RAM I think. This thing is 7 years old, and my friend replaced the hard drive and gave it a faster processor. I want a new computer! :angry:

At home I have a barely adequate 2.1 ghz with 512 ram, 120 G hd running XP.

Of course I want a new one, but next to that i want to drop 2G of ram - that oughtta loosen it up a bit.

At WORK, however (where this forum is block'd dammit :lolo: - I work at an Army base, no Youtube, Myspace and many many other sites that are block'd) I have a beast of a machine. But I had to fight for it, the computer team insisted I didn't need such a mammoth setup, but I won out!

Dell XPS 690 Precision workstation, DUAL Xeon 3.83 Ghz dual-core processors, 2 150Gb 15K rpm SAS hard drives in RAID-0 (striped like gamers), 1000 watt power supply, 4g RAM (XP only recognizes just over 3G of RAM, and we haven't gone to vista yet) 256 Mb NVIDIA GeForce graphics card, dual flat panel monitors, and my absolute favorite-est toy of all, a 9x12 Wacom Intuos III tablet. Yah, I'mma graphic artist, so I need the horsepower! :lolo:

The downside?

Coming home to this yugo after spending the day in a ferrari :lolo:

A black MacBook. I love it!!

lucky I have a Dell that's pushing four years of age..... I finally got internet for it about a month ago. I think I need a new hard drive as my music has taken up most of what remained after the games :lol:

I used to have a freakin' old computer that I got when I was 4 and had until… August. It never ever had internet. Wonder why I joined in August? :lol:

I suck at keeping this computer running! I had so many Jimmy pics on it that I only had 32 MB of space left! :wacko:

I'm emptying the trash again… only 3,773 more things to go :blush:

Once a computer is 75% full or more, it doesn't run very efficiantly. You could get an external hard drive to store your pictures on. Just get what you can afford. You can get 500 GB of storage for around 100 US dollars.

You could also get a flash drive for storage. 2 GB flash drive for around 20 bucks.

Thanks, I'll look at those. I used to have a flash drive, but it disappeared somewhere.

I just checked -- I have 737 MB so I'm doing considerably better.

Oh, and Josh -- my hard drive has (when it's not full) 2 GB of storage space…
