We haven't had one of these in a while, so brag about your computer here (either how great it is or how its a miracle you can even access the internet with it).

This is the laptop I bought just the other day. Its a pretty good bang for your buck, if anyone is looking for a cheap gaming laptop.

Heh. These are always fun (and make me realize how much computer junk I have :lol: ).
Alright, here we go:
Desktop: Mac Mini (primary function: basically everything, including homework (coding primarily), wasting time online, gaming, encoding videos for my iPod Touch, and I'm starting to get into audio production with Logic Express)
Aluminum Unibody
2.4ghz Core 2 Duo
NVIDIA Geforce 320m (256mb shared VRAM)
8gb (2x4gb) DDR3 1066 G-skill RAM
320gb stock hard drive (this is a strong candidate for an SSD sometime soonish possibly)
1tb FW800 external drive for backups
320gb FW800 external drive, mainly for Virtualbox VMs (at least one of which is for a class)
Samsung 2343BWX monitor (2048x1152, or 2k resolution if you didn't know - if I get three more, I could display the 4k video from the Red One camera 1:1 :lol: )
Ergotron LX monitor arm
Some Logitech USB keyboard
Logitech trackball
APC 550va UPS (which is plenty for the Mini which draws between 10 and 20 watts usually)
Pioneer VSX-D508 surround receiver + Optimus LX5 speakers + optical from Mini
Best part: it's SILENT! well unless I'm encoding stuff for my iPod, but even then it's not that loud

Laptop: MacBook Pro 15" (primary function: homework and taking notes in class mostly, although it will be used for mobile audio recording soon enough)
Pre-unibody
2.2ghz Core 2 Duo
NVIDIA Geforce 8600m GT (128mb VRAM)
4gb (2x2gb) Corsair(? Could be another brand) DDR2 667 RAM
500gb WD hard drive
Syncs backups to the 1tb attached to my Mini
Also uses the FW800 320gb drive with Virtualbox VMs on it
15" 1440x900 LED-backlit monitor
No, I don't usually use an external mouse, the trackpad is really very good
Best part: three years old and no problems :D

Server w/ unRAID: (primary use: storing junk, this was my gaming PC, but I got tired of Windows :P )
Gigabyte EP45-UD3P
3.33ghz Core 2 Duo (was 2.66ghz, it's overclocked, which is completely unnecessary for its current purpose)
Graphics card is some <$10 PCI (not express) card with something like 32mb VRAM, it's only used for the BIOS/console if I need to debug
2tb Samsung F3EG (SATA) (parity)
1.5tb WD Green (SATA) (storage drive #1)
650gb Seagate (IDE) (storage drive #2)
160gb Seagate (SATA) (storage drive #3)
Antec 900
Some <$10 IDE DVD drive, it's only used for drive diagnostic CDs really
Not currently plugged into a keyboard, mouse, or monitor
APC SC1000 1000va UPS (also has other stuff plugged into it, like my audio receiver etc)
Best part, the part I'm most proud of:
root@JohnsMediaServer:~# uptime
11:26:00 up 132 days, 16:47
iMac DV G3: (primary use: forum browsing/tutorials/etc, this one is on my workbench)
It's Blueberry!
PowerPC G4 550mhz
512mb RAM
80gb Seagate hard drive
Some leftover keyboard and mouse
ATI Rage 16mb VRAM
15" CRT (which isn't as clear as it once was), 1024x768
Best part: It's surprisingly compact and fits nicely in the corner of my workbench

MSI Nettop: (this will be turned into a music server for the basement, might replace the G3 iMac since it's faster)
1.6ghz Atom
120gb hard drive
Intel integrated graphics (GMA950 I think)
1gb RAM (a convenient leftover from the RAM upgrade for my MacBook Pro)
Some random optical drive
Best part: FREE from my dad, who no longer had a use for it after finding an older Powermac G4 that could take an eSATA PCI card for his external RAID box (eSATA >>> USB on the nettop, the speed difference is actually noticeable over gigabit ethernet :lol: ) (the nettop was his fileserver, the G4 is his current fileserver)
Best part: well, not much :P It was free? (I wouldn't have paid for it)

iBook G3 12": (primary use: it's in the family room for random "just google it" moments mostly, for which it's more than adequate, it's also an indestructible brick that weighs as much as my 15" MacBook Pro :lol: )
400mhz G3
256mb RAM
100gb hard drive
Around 2hrs battery life still (which imo is impressive, it's approaching being a 10-year-old laptop, although this battery is probably newer)
12" 1024x768 monitor
Best part: it was $40 a few years ago on an "as-is" sale, all it needed was a power brick and a hard drive :D

Where did you find the G4 upgrade card (besides eBay)? Does it have any problems booting into OS 9 native (not X Classic)?

Actually it wasn't an upgrade card, my dad sent it in to a company that desoldered the G3 and soldered on a G4. Apparently they had found a G4 that was pin-compatible. As far as booting into OS 9, I'm not sure, I haven't used OS 9 in a very long time. I could try it later though. (sometime after Halloween shenanigans)

Darn you and your one-upping. You've got either the one-model-year newer version of my laptop, or the upgraded version of the same model year. :lol:
