2.7 Ghz, 80 GB hd, came with 512 megs ram. I not 100% sure what kind of mother board it is -- I think a celeron.

IBM Thinkpad 2.2 GHz 240 mb ram 40 GB HD, wireless networking at home.
Internet speed helps alot too... 5 meg download, 512 kbs upload. I work for the cable company, so the FREE price helps even more.

My desktop... ancient 1.8Ghz athlon, 512mb, but it's in the graphics cards. Radeon 9600xt, some matrix millenium thing, two dual-head appian cards, old voodoo 2. Three 21" crts, two 16" crts and one 15" tft.
old pic

My kitchen machine also has three 15" crts, and the rest of my (non-portable) computing lives in my rack in my hall.

Video Cards? 256Mb Nvidia 400MX - a bit outdated now
Motherboards? ECS K7S5A Pro
Clone? Yeb, homebuilt, rebuilt...
512Mb RAM. I want more, but no more slots..not cheap choices.
19" CRT monitor
CD, CDRW, floppy, Zip100Mb. I have a DVD drive, but have not installed it.
120Gb main drive in 2 partitions, 30Gb for quick backup and a USB drive of 60Gb for 'real' backups (this is new this week)
USB 2.0 and I have a firewire card, but no use for it
NIC 100Mb, wireless hub/router, cable modem
HP laser printer (b&w)
2 color inkjet printers, one broken and one clogged. I HATE inkjets.

I also have an old Fuji laptop (Pentium 100Mhz, as in pentium 1!) and an Intel P3 300Mhz system.

I want an HP Color Laser printer. I want a lot of other things too...like lenses and flashes, so we'll see.
