    What kind of computer(s) do you use

    Advertisement



    not that it matters, just curious to see what everyone's working with. mine are as follows, in order of frequency of use

    1) Blackberry Curve 8310 - 312 Mhz Intel XScale processor OS 4.5.0.37 internet thru at&t, browser of choice: Blackberry Browser
    2) Toshiba Satellite L25-S1217 Laptop - 1.6 Ghz Intel Celeron processor, 512 megs of RAM, 50 gig HD - internet by WIFI, browser of choice: Firefox
    3) Gateway E2300 - 2.66Ghz Intel Celeron processor, 256 megs of ram 80 gigs partitioned Internet by Embark DSL, browser of choice MSIE (no choice, work computer)

    number 2 is really my main. i have all my software loaded there and usually tote it in a backpack everywhere i go. Ive used it from everything to graphics creation/manipulation, to audio editing to an iphone unlocking business and a cd backup business. although its loaded with expensive software and about 20 gigs of music/music videos, its 100% factory as far as hardware goes. teh only perpheral i have is a wireless microsoft mouse which i forget more often than not. the battery may be shot, i get about 30-40 minutes use out of a full charge. ive dropped it once and it developed a light blue line down the middle of the screen. it overheats and will turn itself off due to the overheating, but never while im using it, only if i let it idle for a long time (not power settings either). Even due to all these "defects" it still out performs my friends newer toshibas and acers and especially dell laptops. i think it has to do with bloatware and just knowing how NOT to use a computer. i dont feel a need to replace it right now, its a workhorse. old faithful.

    anyways theres my story tell me yours. i wanna hear everything about your computer(s), what do you use it for, what do you like about it, hate about it. what kind of periperals do you use regularly with it etc etc etc.

    also, if you could replace it, would you? with what?

    here are pics of mine

    I have a dell 4550 that I dont use from like 6 years ago.

    I have a red sony vaio laptop (my baby)

    and of course my BB that I use everywhere else!
    This is my Blackberry. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me my Blackberry is useless. Without my Blackberry I am useless.

    Actually I left it at stock, when performance starts to go down I'll boost her up but now she's doing fine.

    Specs:
    C2D E6300
    Asus P5N-E SLi
    2gb Firestix
    36gb/150gb 10krpm Raptors
    8800GTS 320mb
    X-Fi Fata1ty Pro
    Antec P-180B
    Silerstone DA750 60A
    Westinghouse 32" LCD

    This may be jibberish to some and not to others.
