Share with the board the specs of the computer you are currently surfing with.....this type of stuff is fun for all us computer geeks....for the rest of you, sorry.

My main computer is currently a 1.8Ghz Toshiba laptop with a 64mb video card and 512 megs of RAM. I boought this laptop in August because I needed it to keep me sane while on the road. Im already looking to buy another!

At work Im running a Dell C600 laptop (i think ~700 Mhz).

At home, I am running a Compaq 100Mhz OpenBSD firewall, Gateway 450Mhz OpenBSD webserver, all hooked up to a 8 port KVM.

100Mhz old Toshiba laptop running Snort.

Dream List: 12" Apple Powerbook
Build my own multimedia machine.....building it this summer after I get my own place!

i would also like to add something, since i couldn't edit my last written post.

Apples are the BEST computers in the world!
OS X.1 is one of the most stable platforms out there.
the Motorola processors inside the G4's and IMacs are one of the best processors, better than the intel pentiums!
ApplePC are truly the most easiest computer to use.

and the best thing of all about macs:
it can run anything windows has to offer. thank you VirtualPC

my computer is gray and has a screen, mouse, printer, scanner, speakers, keyboard and modem.
the modem is blue.

Here's what I got

ASUS A7N266 M/B with on-board Dolby 5.1 sound and 32MB G-Force2 shared video. AMD XP 1600 CPU running at 1.53 GHz Coolermaster HS&F. 6 Speaker Creative 5.1 speakers 256MB DDR PC 2100 ram(soon to be 512MB). 60 GB Seagate Barracuda Sony 24x CDR/RW drive ,Case mods include plexi window with extra cooling fan blowing directly on CPU and a 3 fan hard drive cooler.Running Windows XP Pro. No Floppy drive. Logitech cordless K/B and Mouse.

Aside from some occasional freezes while shutting down (I reboot once ot twice a week) it runs perfect.
The only real problems I've had in the 15 months since building it was 40 GB IBM Deskstar hard drive that baffed out after less than a year.
Cooling fan in side of case reduced temps 12 C.

I clean my tower out with a can of compressed air once a month .
making sure to get the heatsink and all fans cleaned.
Defrag once in a while, no where as often as I should.

Bandwidth Speed test results.

Don't know the geeky stuff but When I click on on stuff to download(like songs or videos) it takes about 5 seconds to work Pictures pop up right away. It's super fast and I have a laser mouse so I don't have the friggin problem where the cursor gets stuck on the screen!
