I'll start off

two Mac, the Mac I have before I brought the PowerBook G4 is a Pismo, 400Mhz, 512mb RAM, upgraded 4,200rpm 20GB HD, new 7 hours battery (OWC) not that heavy or big compared to modern laptop.

new PowerBook G4, brought it in February (yes I knew there's a MacBook Pro, I didn't buy it) 1.67GHz, the latest G4, brilliant machine.

If I could I would take a photo of my desktop machine, but I can't so this'll have to do:

Basically, when I was shopping for a Windows machine to use as a desktop, I was determined to get something slickly designed, as opposed to some fugly tower *cough cough dell*

My laptop is a PowerBook G4, so you already know what that looks like.  Just note that it's the first model, so it has a slightly different design for the lid/screen.  Cooler looking imo, but also more prone to snagging on stuff, which is why they changed it.

yeah you did, brilliantly fast isn't it? almost as fast as Windows now, thought it does get a tad hotter than the PowerBook, but it is a revs A, problem may occur soon.

you should be happy, the old titanium PowerBook is actually thinner and lighter than the aluminium PowerBook.

even I want a titanium PowerBook, they're the dog's bollocks.

The only reason that I keep my old iBook around is that the film scanner (you can see it peeking out between the two computers) only works with OS 10.3, not with 10.4.  Rarglfargle Minolta farble.

Nice laptops!

I'm not at home to take photos at the moment, but here's a picture of my case:




Inside it I run an Athlon XP 2500 with 1gb ram & a Radeon 9800 Pro.  It's not all that current, but it runs the latest games fairly decently.  I'm looking at upgrading soon, and when I do I expect to get some kind of small formfactor box, like a Shuttle or maybe a laptop.

My computer desk:

Note the use of the Kensington Priority Puck, for all you wooters out there.  I need to clean up at some point, but meh.  By the way, the DVDs on the left side are Farscape Starburst Edition 2.2 and Stargate season 2.  Yes, the computer is an HP, but most of it isn't from them (i.e. the RAM, the sound card, the video card and one of the hard drives).  Basically, the only main bit that's theirs is the mobo.  Hopefully I'm going to upgrade shortly, though.  It'd have to be during the summer, when I'd have time to build a computer.

First, Bastardous, Stargate = LOVE. I recently downloaded the first 7 seasons of it and am going nuts over Jack and Daniel. :D

Here is my computer. :D It is messy as is my desk and you will notice my insane amount of wires and such hooked up to my computer. My extra usb hub, and hooked up to that is my webcam, my tablet, my printer, my external hard drive, and then I have my cable connection for the internet, my mic, my headphones, and my actual battery. *amused* Packing everything takes a really long time.

Another laptop photo... and a not so messy desk.



This is my Toshiba Satellite M40/43 Series, pretty good considering i worked my arse off for it... Running on Intel Celeron M 1.5GHz, 704MB RAM, ATI Radeon Graphics card, 40GB hard drive, (that sony walkman sitting next to it acts as an external 20GB HDD)... And, it's name? Pintsize...

Wait until ou get to LTC Mitchell (who crops up in season 9).  Ben Browder (the actor) was in Farscape and I, as a dude, think he's probably hotter.  Though, MacGyver will always win.  It's the only show where I the main character can have a mullet and still be the man.

Well, I got into it for the Jack/Daniel slash as I mentioned, and I believe I already hate Mitchell and Jonas (per urging of my friend. I'll give them a shot once I actually see them, for now, it's random discriminatory hate since apparently they "get in the way" of the love).

All I know is that WHOA SAM IS HOT. And she is the OTHER reason I watch that show.

Well, I guess I just have residual love for Farscape, which is probably the greatest Sci-Fi show ever made, in my opinion, and yes, I know it has some steep competition.  Probably why I also like the character of Vala a lot (also shows up in season nine).  Amanda Tapping certainly isn't bad, but I'm personally more a fan of the new doctor.

Nah, it's from some small computer outfit (www.cyberpowersystem.com) and it's called the Lan Party Special.  You can see the carrying handle on the front, although there's no way in hell I'll trust that dinky plastic hinge to hold the computer.  It's a great system, and hella cheap, just a bit bigger than I was expecting.

What's an Aria?

The Aria is Antec's SFF case.  It looks nice in theory, but in the flesh (metal?) it's kind of ugly.

Honestly, i wouldn't be able to tell the difference hardware wise as the whether it was a Celeron or whatever, so it doesn't bother me so much, and since i upped the RAM, he has been running very smoothly... And yes, it is fairly easy to use, and the media buttons on the left side of the keyboard are very helpful...

And yes, i have a current naming theme with my technology... Laptop is Pintsize, PDA is Pintsize Jnr, Flash Drive is MiniPint, and the Sony Walkman HDD is StoragePint... and they have corresponding icons too...

no, i am not obsessed *shifty eyes*

EDIT: It also has fairly good sound for a laptop too, some laptop speakers are pretty shocking, although these ones are impressive..

My computer desk:



Shuttle case
P4 3.2Ghz (although it's only running at 2.8Ghz, and I can't figure out why.)
1G RAM
nvidea 6800-model video card
20.1" ViewSonic monitor (I freaking love my monitor)
Old School power strip surge protector thing that I've had forever

Powered by the vodka-rocks in the glass.

Background is a pretty cool program called Desktop Earth. It automatically updates with what the earth looks like at that given minute. As I took this picture around 10pm CST last night, my monitor looks half-dark. You can see lights from cities when you look at the monitor, but not in this picture.

Next computer I build will be a full-size tower. While I love the size and compactness of my shuttle case, the thing isn't too configurable. I can't change the power supply, there's only one fan, and the thing gets freaking hot when I'm playing a graphics-intense game.

Heh, you're switching to a tower, and I'm switching away.  I hate the amount of space towers take, and the general noise they make.  Never mind that lifting them sucks ass.

My XPC has a 350W PSU in it, so I cannot complain.  They also put some fans in the back that blow air towards the front where another fan then sucks it out the side.  It also helps that I have the AC blowing directly on it at all times.

while it's make no different to consumer user, pro user who use computer for rendering animation or encoding a video would find the celeron not enough for those task.

Shuttle Cases are awesome.  Sure, they're trouble if you have a stack of expansion cards you can't bear to part with, and they're a spell toasty if you have a 7800 and an A64-FX2 in it, but you can't beat the form factor.  And they're pretty stable/reliable.

P4 3.2Ghz (although it's only running at 2.8Ghz, and I can't figure out why.)

Can you fiddle with the multiplier settings in the BIOS config?

I, of course, don't have one.  My current ride is an Athlon XP 2800+, Radeon 9500 (minspec for Oblivion!), 768MB of DDR333; all housed in a poorly-modified circa-1998 $40 steel case.
Viewport is a 19" Iiyama VisionMaster 450, a truly amazing CRT that is unfortunately showing signs of impending doom.
I also have an IBM (oldschool, in other words) Thinkpad T23, refurbished.  1.2Ghz PIII, 128mb RAM.  Great for websurfing, typing, watching movies, running DosBox, etc.   Minimalism is a virtue sometimes.  And Thinkpads are rock solid.  I've yet to experience any problems with it.  Even ran a KANOTIX LiveCD just fine.

I would gladly upgrade if I didn't have to part with $1000 in the bargain.  On the plus side, it's a nice excuse to get an XPC.

My system specs:
17" Samsung SyncMaster 171p TFT

AMD Athlon64 3000+ Venice Core cooled by a Thermalright XP-120 with a Papst 4412 F/2GLL
Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard
1GB Ram (2x512MB, Kingston)
Sapphire Radeon 9600xt Ultimate Edition (passively cooled)
Pioneer DVR-109 DVD Writer
2x200gb Seagate harddisk
ElanVital 400W psu (semi-passively cooled)
LianLi PC-6083a aluminium case

Yes, I'm somewhat obsessed with building an actively cooled, silent system.

I also have a laptop, an Acer Travelmate 292lmi. But it's nothing special, so I won't bother putting the specs here.

Here's my amazing machine, the important bits:
19" LG 1980U and 17" Samsung SyncMaster 710n

It's got a mobo (clearly), but I don't know the model (I think it's an Asus).  It's also got a DVD writer and a CD drive, but I don't know the brands or anything either.  It's an HP machine (as you can see), so I didn't pick it out or anything.

1GB RAM (2x512MB no-name brand)
ATI Radeo 9800pro
M-Audio Delta 6/6 (with Omni-Studio breakout box)
120GB Maxtor HD (HP put it in there)
160GB Seagate HD

Yeah, I'm probably going to be upgrading my computer before too long.  Hopefully work will start to pick up.  My main band is taking a couple of weeks of our weekly gig, but it doesn't pay much anyways.  I'm not getting any freelance gigs either.  *sigh*  Maybe after my recital.

No, actually, it's pretty heavy (~3kg), ugly and has the CD on the side. I want a new one. But small laptops tend to be expensive.
But right now, Sony's SZ1 looks damn promising.

They are?  Sounds like my Dell 600m.  14.1" (1400x1050), ATI Radeon, 1GB RAM, DVD writer, 60GB HD.  Cost me $3300 (with a huge discount since a Dell employee snagged it for me) then, costs like $1500 now.

Thank god I got the "you come and fix things for me" warranty.  It has a new motherboard, new HD, new display, new keyboard, new touchpad/wrist rest.  Just need to replace the CPU and RAM, and it's a brand new laptop.

my perfect laptop is either, a Sony Vaio 13.3inch widescreen or the new MacBook/MacBook Pro that hopefully are widescreen (10-13inch either way doesn't matter) and affordable.

The resolution sounds awesome, but the problem is: This configuration either doesn't exist anymore (I just checked, hoping for a good deal) or doesn't exist in Germany.
There's one 14.1" laptop (D610) with a seperate GPU, but it has an X300 which is ridiculous.
So, my search continues...

Well, the 600m is now the M20.  Give that a whirl.

Edit: Oh, and these are generally under small business laptops, not under the home shite.

normal 1024x768 or optional 1440x1050

(the M20 is an excellent laptop, slighty old but golden design and as light as an 12inch iBook)[/b]

The laptop is about three years old, both hinges are broken now, so it's leaning against the hardrive.  I had epoxied it back together but it didn't really hold.

TiBook 867Mhz PowerPC G4
768 MB SDRAM
System Version:   Mac OS X 10.4.5 (8H14)
Kernel Version:   Darwin 8.5.0
Computer Name:   Galactica

Yes, it's name is Galactica, and because I'm a nerd my printer is Boomer and my phone is Helo.

The externam hard drive is Hobbes though (after the tiger, not the man.)

I always wanted to own a Titanium PowerBook, even thought I currently have the most powerful PowerBook ever, which mean donkey shite to PC user.

the Titanium PowerBook clearly the most advanced computer ever when it's release, I mean it's remarkably thin and light at the time! (2001)

After showing you my computer, I want no one to ever whine about their old machine again. You will weep for me after this.



A google image of every thing that my computer has.

Pentium III 733MHz
512Mb RAM
19Gb HDD
D-link wireless PCI card
ATi Radeon 9200 128Mb PCI Card

I finally have the money to upgrade some of the parts though, Like a bigger hard drive, and a faster processor.

Symp, I used to have that DELL, expect it got a PIII 500MHz, 512MB RAM (upgraded) 12GB HD and 60GB HD (new) and 32MB VRAM, I got it in 1997 I think.
