My Computer[s]

My main system is my favorite:

Home-made Desktop

I just ordered and assembled this in August 2008. It was budget, not the greatest, but AWESOME.

Specs:

  • Intel E8400 Core2 Duo 3.0GHz
  • Patriot Extreme Performance 2gb RAM
  • Cooler Master Centurion 5 case
  • Seagate Barracuda 1TB HD
  • Samsung All-in-one super CD/DVD write/read, etc. optical drive
  • Nvidia 8800GT 512mb
  • Gigabyte Mobo
  • 22″ Envision LCD

Yeah, it rules.

Gateway E-295C

I got this computer in August of 2007. Yes, it is almost brand new. My school requires a computer, because it is awesome. If not, I may still only have my old system [not good]. This is a tablet pc, the best kind. There is nothing like writing on your computer screen. OneNote 2007 is the best piece of Office, and definitely the most useful. I have the rest of Office 2003 as well.

Stats

Only features I use are listed.

  • 14in Tablet PC
  • Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04-1
  • Intel Core2 Duo T7300 2.0GHz
  • 2GB of ram [my favorite stat]
  • Fingerprint reader
  • CD/DVD Reader and Burner [unbelievably useful]
  • Media card reader
  • Bluetooth

Dell Dimension E310
This is my old computer. I got it for Christmas 2005 from my parents. The computer is still good, but I needed a laptop for school.

Stats

Once again, only features I use are listed…

  • Windows XP Media Center Edition
  • Intel Pentium 4 with hyper-threading
  • 2gb of RAM now
  • CD Burner
  • DVD Reader [I know, no burner. See above]
  • 17in Monitor
  • Not much else. This system isn’t anything special, but it does what I want it to well.

The Old Gateway

This our old (6+ years) pc. With my family’s recent acquisition of a newer computer, this has become my main experimentation machine. It is kind of slow and old, but expendable, so I can mess with it!

Stats

These are the main stats:

  • 1.6 gHz Pentium 4
  • 128mb ram (yes, iknow that is a ridiculously small amount of ram)
  • Ubuntu Server 7.10
  • 40gb hard drive.
  • Had Windows ME at first (dying…).
  • Tried to put Linux on it several times before making into a server.
  • Rarely fully assembled; usually has the side of the case off (not sure exactly where it is…)

It is my mess-with computer. Junk, but if I destroy it I won’t be out anything.

Various family PCs have been used by myself when I needed them as well.
