My crappity computer:

Pentium III processor (why it freezes up all the time)

14 Gig hardrive (NOT enough for me, a screencap whore)

150 MB RAM (not enough!)

Crappy video card (dragging, freezing, crashing)

crappy sound card (fuzzy, sound goes in and out)

Iomega External CD-RW (which, BTW, is not working right now >_<)

Logitech Wingman "Joystick" controller (it looks kinda like an N64 controller)

Epson Stylus Photo 820 printer (really noisy but since it's designed for photos, it prints really good Roger pics)

Piece of crap computer.

My computer triples as a DVD player and a Super Nintendo. I had to install the damn DVD-ROM though.

I just have a stock Insipiron 5100. Beyond programs, I never do anything to my laptop. I'd love to get an alienware, but I'm tight on money as it is.

I'm one of those Macintosh users. Yeah, I know. I'm in the bottom 5% of the computer world. Do I care? No. Does a Mac work for my type of job? YES.

[/Sarcastic tone]

Seriously... I have a 400MHz Power Mac G4 with 896MB of RAM that I wish I could replace but I can't afford to. I also have a 466MHz iBook with 320MB of RAM that I wish I could replace too.

My PC has a name (SHAZAM). And he has served me well for these past five years, but I doubt he'll live through the sixth. Sooner or later the Screen-Dim Reaper must haul away my poor CPU.
Here's the specs, to the best of my knowledge.

128mb RAM (edit: I accidentally doubled it!)
30GB Hard Drives (C: and DSmile
512mhz Processor
Floppy Support (ASmile
CD-ROM Drive 4x (ESmile
CD-RW Drive 4x (FSmile
4mb Video Card (no joke)

Windows 98
Internet Explorer 5.0

Pity the foo' who picked out that video card.
*pumps shotty*
My crappy graphics are releasing the evil redneck in me!

Mine is a 400mhz clunker that has been through at least 5 other owners in it's time.

Let me put it like this, it's equipped with a Voodoo 3 vid-card, about roughly 200mb of memory, 2 16GB hard drives, and a hardcore attitude.

All crammed into an old 8088 case that needs to be run with the cover off to keep from overheating.

That my friends, is my sick puppy. The Mick Foley of Computing.

Madrona 02-01-2005 12:17 PM
SOYO motherboard
Intel Celeron 2.4Ghz
768 RAM
Sony 3.5" floppy
Lite-on DVD-ROM
CD Writer
Maxtor 20GB hard drive
Western Digital 160 GB hard drive (as three drives)
Windows XP Pro
Labtec Wireless Keyboard/ mouse
17" Megavision flat panel monitor
Creative Labs speakers w/ subwoofer

I know that this motherboard came with on board sound and video...but it sucked. So we went and got the cards but what kind? Beats me! I should know, but I don't.Oh Well

None the less, my husband built it for just a little over $200 and it has served me well. My favorite part is the 6 USB ports....2 in front and 4 in back. I love my computer.

While I would love to have the Hauppauge WinTV-GO TV tuner on my computer, I'll just have to live with it being on the hubby's media computer for now. It handles all that sort of stuff( massive hard drives and input from the sat dish).

-HP printer-scanner-copier
-Linksys wireless hub downstairs, Netgear PC card in my computer.

I would post a pic, but my camera seems to have gone for a walk.


I just got a new CD ROM and keyboard. The CD ROM just stopped reading and had to be replaced, and the keyboard...took a shower.

Also I dropped it, and it landed on my wireless card. And then it looked kinda...bent-ey. So I had to get a new Linksys one.

And...um...I think that's about it. Oh I got an mP3 player.
