XP / Windows 7 Pro RTM

Atari but don't remember if it was a 400, 800 or 1200xl. I'm leaning towards the 1200 as I remember black.

Win7 64bit Ultimate

The first computer I can remember using was the mighty TRS-80 and we used to play space invaders on it.


After that I had an Amstrad but the only thing I really remember about it was that it used Gem Desktop as the OS.

The next was a Packard Bell with Windows 3.1 on it.

After that I had a Gateway with an Intel i133 processor 32mb of ram on-board audio/video 5gb HDD and 28.8k dial up internet. I used to play Ultima Online on that back when it was released about 12 years ago now. It had Windows 95.

I also owned an HP Pavilion with a Celeron 533Mhz 256mb ram and a 128mb nVidia video card. It had a 40gb Quantum Fireball HDD in it and Windows 98SE.

I had a Pavilion 506a if I remember the model correctly which had a Celeron 2.7Ghz in it and an 80Gb Seagate Barracuda HDD. On-board audio/video and 512 ram. I changed out the motherboard for an Intel board and added a Radeon 9550 256mb graphics card and a Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum and 2Gb of Kingston ram which I put copper heat spreaders on. I also added a better CPU cooler to replace the cheap aluminum stock cooler. I mounted it all in a new case as well. I replaced the optical drives with an LG dvd burner.

After that I built the system I am currently using but this system is a constant work in progress as I am always moving to better hardware as I can afford it. Now if they would just release the HD4890 Atomic...

Orbital Shark


Mine was a 386sx, 33MHz, 4MB RAM and a Tseng Labs SVGA Card

It cost a whopping 1,400 (early 80s) and I managed to OverClock it to a massive 35MHz LOL

My first work PC was an IBM PC, later upgraded with a 10MB hardcard.

At home, we had more advanced stuff, all home-built because my wife was a(n) hardware engineer (later a software engineer). I still have drawers full of parts and pieces. Too bad they're 20 years obsolete...although I did put a brand new AT power supply I had "in stock" to good use for a friend last weekend.
