Computer Specs

Recommended Posts

Chances are that if you're reading this, you've got a computer.

So, what kind of computer do you use? Mac, PC, iphone... Tell us about it! Here's your chance to brag about what you have, or whine about what you wish your computer could do.


Updated: 02/01/2010

So, to start:

I use a couple of different computers, but I mainly alternate between my desktop and a laptop. On the desktop side, I've built a whirring monolith that is as follows:

Antec P182 Case (monolith)

Asus P5NE-SLI Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.6Ghz, Overclocked to 3.16Ghz (whirring)

6Gigs of Ram, which it sees all of. :D

An NVidia 8800 GT drives my 1080P monitor and one 1280x1024, and an NVidia 9400 drives the other 1280x1024 and a 1024x768. Yes, I use all of them.


On the laptop side, I switch between my luggable Lenovo Y410, for the power work, and my Asus eeePC 1000h, for note-taking and casual surfing. The eee's specs are pretty standard:

1.6Ghz Intel Atom Processor

2Gb of RAM

80 GB Hard drive (Which I need to upgrade)

The battery, however, lasts a good 5 hours in use. Very nice for long classes.

The Lenovo:

Core 2 Duo Centrino @1.6Ghz

2 Gigs of Ram

320GB Hard drive

Integrated video. :(


Well, that's it. Now, show everyone what you use!

Gateway MT3421 laptop


Ubuntu Linux 9.04

AMD Turion 2.2 GHz 64-bit CPU


Hard drive removed; using a 16GB SD card as the main drive


SD Card slot

14.1" 1280x800 Display

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100

3.5 hour battery life



I've owned many laptops. This one is my favorite, thus far. Quite inexpensive, too. :) I removed the hard drive because I don't trust hard drives; I've had too many crash. I get better battery life without it. :P I run Ubuntu Linux on an SD card.

So I could tell you about the specs on my desktop, but such information would not tell you anything of true value.


What you need to know is this:

My desktop still works, though it has had amnesia multiple times.

My desktop hates me.


Now my laptop...

It's 12" by 9" clear plastic and not that heavy. The hard drive can hold a surprising amount of data, though I do have to transfer to my external hard drive every once in a while. Rainy days are particularly obnoxious for my data, though the case is water repellent. The processor is an old but time-tested model. The write speed is variable. Doesn't really connect to the internet, but does LAN fairly well. Battery life also varies, though it has gone for 18 hours or more at times. The OS is fairly reliable, though the data filing system is atrocious. Able to handle a wide variety of programs and some games, though primarily used for word processing.


I am such an English major... ^_^


(If you haven't figured it out, my laptop is a clipboard)

you silly :P


depending on who's keeping count, I have 3-8 systems.

Three here at my dwelling

two at my parents house

three (two at my grandpa's, one at my parents) that aren't technically mine, but which are never used by anyone but me.


the first three:


Apple eMac. G4/1GHz, 1 GB RAM[maxed out], 80 GB HD. OS 10.5 "Leopard"

Apple PowerBook "Pismo". G3/500MHz, 720 MB RAM, 120 GB HD (Stock was 40 GB). OS 10.4 "Tiger"/Debian

Apple iBook (Tangerine). G3/300 MHz, 320 MB RAM, 100 GB HD (Stock was 6 GB). OS 10.3 "Panther"/Debian


The second two:


Apple PowerBook (Titanium). 700(?) MHz, 512(?) MB RAM, 40(?) GB HD. OS 10.4 "Tiger"

Generic Pentium II PC. 400 MHz, 128 MB RAM, 4 + 1 GB HDs. Windows 2000


The third three:


(Qty. 1) Apple PowerMac 7500/100. 100(?) MHz, 32(?) MB RAM, 1(?)GB HD. System 7

(Qty. 2) IBM PS/2. 20(??) MHz, 1 MB RAM (more with the correct hardware level driver for expansion card), 20 MB HD (DOA). DOS (3.4 - 6.1, also FreeDOS. will run OpenGEM GUI, and, with certain upgrades, Windows 3.1 - 95)

On one, unidentified brand computer i got from a garage sale at a moving business.

OS: Linux Mint 7

Hard drive: 10 GB

OS: Windows XP

Hard drive: 30 GB


RAM: 512

CPU: 800 MHz

Graphics Card: GeForce4 MX 420


I've got another computer i fixed up


IBM Aptiva M71

about 1 GB Hard drive

32 MB Ram

i forgot what the CPU was. 133 MHz probably.

It runs Puppy Linux a little sluggishly, and also FreeDOS


Oh, and i have a second computer from the garage sale much like the above, minus the linux hard drive i added.


And my laptop has nearly bit the dust...an IBM Thinkpad R52 with 512 MB RAM

I have a single core Pentium 4 at about 2.3g speed but I am really hoping to get my cel phone or a "tablet pc" (touch-sensitive screen designed to be portable) working for all my computer needs. They usually use those new Atom processors due to improved battery life. I am also looking at the possibility of using a server computer processor to do image manipulation and animation and just control that program with the cel phone or tablet PC. In that case, I might be able to boast a very powerful computer but not for the one in my hands taking my keyboard commands and image drawing tools.

Now, I have what I call the "POS Dell".

Form Factor: Laptop

Make/.Modle: Dell Latitude

Processor: 1GHz Pentium III Mobile

RAM: 256 (?) MB, I think its PC100 or 133. Old and slow either way.


Video: ATI Mobility Radion (16MB)

Monitor: 14.1" TFT

OS: CentOS 5.4 (same as CF's server actually) with Gnome.

Other: The lid hinges are shot, so the monitor is held up with a piece of tape when in use.



It was acquired in a bit of an exchange. A lady with no money had it and a little netbook, both broken. The deal was, I'd fix one and keep the other as payment. I fixed both, called her and asked which one she wanted.

It also had a unique-for-it's-time glossy case with a cool little pattern embedded within the plastic. It was cool in 2008, but everyone does it now.


The defective NVIDIA chip eventually fried the entire mobo. :-/

New Laptop:


Model: Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5050

I do miss the Bluetooth, XD-Card reader, remote, and the two headphone outputs. Otherwise, I love it!


Price in September 2010: $398 USD

That system seems very unbalanced to me as a systembuilder.. I probably would have cut down on the amount of RAM but spent that money getting a board capable of DDR3 RAM at least 1600 Mhz level maybe 1866, and probably put a 5670 in there depending on if it was going to be used for rendering/gaming/etc. Do you know how much they paid for the system?
