My lappy is a Dell Inspiron 1100 notebook with XP, purchased nearly 4 years ago when I started college. Rumor has it that I may be getting a new lappy for grad school and replacing the ancient one at home with this *crosses fingers*

Said ancient computer at my house is a Gateway desktop, with Win98. We still have dial-up also, and since there is often crackling on the line, we get tossed off every so often, sometimes every 5 minutes. We'd had bad experiences with Gateway almost from Day 1--fried motherboard, the computer refusing to recognize a printer, tech support that abandons you a couple weeks after you get it.

Been using a Dell Dimension DIM5100 PC for about a year and a half now, but I hope to get a MacBook Pro for my 18th birthday in September.

Hehe,

Well, I ain't in no way wealthy, I just happened to spend about all money I had at the time on this computer. Same thing when I bought my previous compy. At the moment, I think I own about 7 or 8 different Macintosh computers from over the years. About 3 of them is still in use, the rest stored away (but fully "functional"). I've had various Windows-machines over the years also, but none that I have really liked or cared for at all.

Currently, I am using a second generation Mac Mini as my main computer.

1.33 GHz PowerPC G4
512 MB DDR SDRAM

My Mac Mini continues to reject CDROM and CD's so I brought an external CD-RW burner by Memorex a few months ago.

About a week ago, I had to buy a external WD My Book hard drive because I ran out of hard disk space on my Mac Mini.

For five years prior to the Mac Mini, I only used Mandriva Linux on a computer that built myself. I still have it. I still love to used it with Mandriva 2007 from time to time. I don't use Windows at home.

800 MHz Duron
256 MB (memory)

I am planning on buying a used/reconditioned IBM laptop for DJ use only. Linux SUSE 10.3 will most likely be the OS of choice for my laptop. Windows will be completely erased from the laptop hard drive completely.

:D

And eMachines is same way. However I did not experiance a fried Motherboard, just a loose heatsink on the cpu and a trojan my bro got for it. #(

Also and I know this is off topic but, does anyone around here use eMachines or Hann-G or any other cheap LCD company? If so is there any shall we say, Ghosting?

As for the Ipod question, I have a fifth generation 60GB in white (I actually chose white over black :P ). I've had no problems with it since I bought it in August, the only flipside is that the screen scratches very, very easily - it isn't very durable despite it's relatively large size. I take impeccable care of it, I often place it in a protective cover with screen protector, yet I still have numerous scratches on the screen that really impair watching videos.

Not a major problem at all though, I find it much more reliable than the Creative Zen I used to own, which froze regularly and eventually just completely broke. It has a great storage capacity, can hold photos and videos, as well as contacts, notes and games, looks great and is easy to use. Perfect, and I can't think for my life why this specific model isn't being made anymore.

Personally, I have a 15" 1.83GHz Dual Core MacBook Pro with 1.5GB RAM, and a 3GHz Pentium 4, 1GB RAM desktop running Ubuntu Linux. I also have a 320GB external hard-drive and chipped Xbox.

I'm sharing a house with a programmer and a network admin, so we're setting up a central Linux server to network everything.

In the house we have 2 MacBook Pros, 1 MacBook, 2 PCs with Linux (including the server), 3 PCs on Win XP and 2 chipped Xboxes. There's only 4 of us living here....

A Windows 98 by eMachines. It's not too bad. Yes, it's slow loading certain websites (like this one) and freezes alot, but I promised myself not to part with it until it crashes for good.

I have Optimum Online, so it runs semi-fast. I couldn't imagine it going any slower sometimes.

Sailor.... here is a faster running browser for slow comp's
http://en.utilidades-utiles.com/download-opera-windows-98.php

My main comp is a iMac G5 1.9GHz running Mac OS X 10.4.10. My lappy if I ever get it working is a iBook Clamshell once blueberry but now black. The comp I am sometimes to either help my tech challenged family or just use because I want to is a PowerMac G4 dual 450MHz. :D
