Well right now, a dual-core E6300 and E5400 I think it is. 2.8 and 2.7 , with 4 GB each. Used to have 8 GB in this till I put 4 in the other system. This has a DVB-T tuner, and a 1 TB hdd / E-Sata, with Vista atm.

The other has a 250 GB in it. And I'll be building another one to replace the P4 (2.4), running with a SATA 1 hdd. Dont know what I'll buy yet. But it'll have to be MATX. Since the case is MATX

First computer was probably the Sega / Amiga

First comp was a Sega SC-3000, soopa doopa version with a whole 32k ram. Next was an Amstrad CPC64. Even bought the colour screen for an extra $750, all 16 colours..

Current comp, an old 3 gig P4. I would have upgraded but had to pay to fly my daughter and family back from Oz after they couldn't find jobs. Still waiting to be repaid...

Well specs is sig are handy for a number of reason but first PC was a Dick Smith VZ 200 and it was a monster

3.8Mhz Processor
16K or ram

All time favourite PC I owned Amiga 500, really was way ahead of everything else on the market.

First IBM Compatible PC

386 DX 40
16MB of Ram
Kinda hated the 386 after owning a Amiga lol, but needed it for work :(

20-10-2010, 08:34 AM
Sinclair spectrum 48k
Loaded games via audio tape :)

+1 Battleneter COMMODORE RULED Amiga 500 was my second pc

386SX-25, 2MB RAM I think it was. 14" CRT. 50MB Quantum HDD.

A mid model cos 286 were available too, so were 486. Had the 386 with Win31 and MS Works for school and even running Win95 on it until maybe 1997 until bro upgraded to a AMD 200Mhz and that was used until the mid 2000s until he got a 1.5 AMD Sempron (which now does not work anymore). Kept the chassis.

So we don't spend that much on computers really.

For study. My first laptop was 2nd hand, 486 DX3-75 for school work bought for $600 odd via the local newspapers. Also had used P1, P2, P3 and now a Core Duo (all used). Last 2 still used today. A modest 2.33 Quad is what I have now as my desktop.
