what kind of 'pc' is everyone using ?


ADDED
CPU Identity tells you all you technical information about your cpu & ram etc
Speedtest7 display free memory , lines of code per second and a short comparison list, tests 1 core
Fritzbench a common benchmark oft quoted you can select number of cores / threads to be tested

whose got the most "uber" pc & who's making good use of an but faithful clunker ?


my 2600celeron is the 'best' pc ive had, reliable , hassle free and ive clocked up more miles on this than the half dozen before it. I also had a pair of amdk6@ 400mhz i grew fond of (used for head 2 head gaming)



Code: Select all

hehe...Working fine so far (knocks on wood)! I make sure to keep the fans running on high to keep that gfx chip from frying up the mobo.

It was free anyway. A friend gave it to me because it was broke. I put a new HD and CD drive and it ran great!

I only code FB on my old retired comps, mostly P4s from the first half of the last decade. I used to use an old P3 laptop, but I got sick of its many problems and junked it last year.

PC-Home
AMD Athlon II X4-635, 4 Gb RAM, 1 Gb Radeon 3850, Archlinux 64 + KDE 4.6.2

Notebook-Home
AMD Turion X2, 2 Gb RAM, 512 Mb Radeon X1250, Windows 7 Home Premium -Wife's choice :-(

PC-Work
AMD Athlon II X2-245, 2 Gb RAM, 128 Mb Onboard Nvidia VGA, Archlinux 32 + KDE 4.6

Basically I'm an AMD guy, I build and sell PCs and for nearly 10 years I have not used an Intel CPU for the computers I built and sold. Bad price/performance ratio. Also I always root for the underdog. :-)

I also have my sights on an Android tablet(Viewsonic GPad looks cheap and fast) It seems that tablets are the way to go for trivial tasks. It would be very nice to have our beloved FB to run on these ARM devices.

These are the three computers I use at home, each for a different task.

1) Desktop: Dell, Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93Ghz, 2GiB RAM, on-board sound and video, Ubuntu 10.10.
2) Laptop: Toshiba Satellite WinXp Sp3
3) Net-book: HP Mini 210-1012, UNR 10.04, Intel Atom N450 Processor (1.66 GHz)

My work computer, running vista, is a different model from the desktop at home, but the specks are about the same. And I have an unused WinXP Notebook as a spare.

I prefer to use the desktop for everyday use. Big screen, always on Internet connection, and I leave it running most of the time.

The Netbook is ideal for traveling. I have a USB modem with a 3G SIM, so connection speed is fine. I can use a bluetooth connection with my 3G hand-phone as a backup Internet connection, but I prefer the simplicity of a USB modem. No more fiddling with Wireless network passwords for me.

The WinXP computer is for when I find some gadget that only has windows drivers that I want to use. Or I want to try a program that does not work out of the box with wine. It handy to keep around, and its doing nothing else useful.

And I have an old netbook, and ASUS Eeepc, running UNR, that is configured as a dedicated music player.

The HP Mini is the computer I like the most.

Junk computer: Win 2000 ~ junk components
ACER Laptop: WinXP ~ ATOM processor ~ underpowered
3 random DOS computers ~ one actually has a Celleron processor.
