16 Jan 06What are you lookin' at?!

We’re off today in honor of Martin Luther King’s birthday.

But, if you’re using the day to sit around on your ass and do nothing (oh, Dr. King would have been really impressed by you), please tell us in the comments what computer you’re using right now.

And, as always, don’t lie.

We’ll know.

    Sun Fire E25K with 72 processors, 576GB RAM, 4TB disk array. It sits next to my desk, and gets used to run my calendar, OpenOffice, and FireFox.

    I needed portable machine with mighty power, and the time for acquiring a laptop had come. The signs and portents said it would be but another year before the possible intel switch. A mere dozen count of fortnight hath past and I find my 1.67 Ghz 17″ PB seriously outgunned in all of the performance areas of necessity for my vocation…

    A MUCH brighter screen, 4x faster render times, a cable that doesn’t get yanked about when my roommates trip over it…

    I was frothing at the mouth, gibbering in tears, an cursing my typical luck. I still am, that is, of course, unless one of you would like to buy it for about $1500+ ?…

  3. Apple iBook G4 2004 edition.

    768MB RAM 60GB HD letters rubbing off all the keys with an arrow button that sticks and a sometimes working-space bar. Running Mac OS X 10.4.4 which means my finder is no longer alphabetical. Makes me want to swith to PathFInder since I already replaced Sherlock with QuickSilver!

  4. Tim says:

    Quad Core PowerMac G5 with 16 gigs of ram and a terabyte of memory. Oh yeah. Dual 30 inch monitors.

  5. BZ says:

    My Primary Machine is a Mac 512K with a web browser written from scratch in BASIC, and my backup machine is a 512 Node Dual Processor XServe Cluster with a 4TB Raid.

    (Or maybe just a 14″ iBook G3 700 MHz)

  6. Ben says:

    Original 1Ghz 17″ PowerBook – and still runnin strong.

    Yeah, the distortion field emptied my wallet that year…

  7. androgen says:

  8. androgen says:

    I forgot to add that I have a mirrored back door in my dual 1GHz butt cheeks.

  10. Will Feldhusen says:

    I have a 2.0 ghz G5 Dual Chip ith 512 Megs of memory.

    How will Moltz know? It’s scaring me.

  11. gnawbone says:

    Somehow, this all seems to make my Atari 800 with dual floppies and 13″ color tv seem a little under powered. I can still play Necromancer just fine, so I am confused.

  12. Streetrabbit says:

    The home kit:

    15″ PB Alu 1.5Mhz 80Gb(ram) 1Gb(hdd) I had it custom built with swapped hard disk and memory capacity, just to see how it would work.

    PIII 450 running Ubuntu Breezy.

    A Dell something or other running eggs pea. (it’s my wife’s..honest)


    IBM ThinkingPad…with a black power cord…that plugs in.

    Can we do this again tomorrow? Maybe a cheese inventory.

    I’ll start.

    In the frost free 510 litre Fisher and Paykel:

    500g New Zealand Tasty

    150g Tasmanian Brie

    250g Grated Parmesan

    500g Home Brand Lite Shredded Mozzarella (it’s my wife’s…honest)

  13. asozasis says:

    Lo! I saw a bandwagon and jumped on it. And it’s not off topic…not if you think about it. So:

    3 of those little triangular prisms of Blue Castella. Been in the friggin frig for about15 months, but, well, if you’re goin to eat smelly cheese it should be REALLY smelly.

    Half a pack ( about 250grams) of Home Brand Lite shredded tasty.

    17 slices (in those little plastic wrappers – difficult choice: eat the plastic for taste, or the cheese to get my figure back) of Kraft NO FAT…except if you read the fine print, in which case 2% fat.

  14. IBM PCjr.

    But it has a remore keyboard!

  15. blank says:

    It’s Tuesday now, but I’m still using:

    iBook 14″ G3/800 MHz

    640 MB RAM

    40 GB H/D

    10.3.9 (ain’t puttin’ 10.4.x on here, Bunky!)

    and it’ll probably be the same tomorrow…

  16. Zounds Padang AKA Ben the Man says:

    Hey, i’m loking for a Mr. Bandar who said he would trade his 15 incher ‘book for this old optical cheese drive? Mr. Bandar?


    Then there is also a call for Amanda Huganckis? I’m looking for Amanda Huganckis.

    1 15″ Mac Titanium PB 500mhz 512 MB of Ram. Heavily Moded. I got it for free due to a broken screen and a broken temperature sensor on the motherboard. I removed the screen and have it hooked to an external monitor. I have the fan hooked up to get power via the external USB port with a rheostat to adjust fan speed as I needed. 10.4.4

    A Core Duo white MacBook (not Pro)

    2.1GHz, 1GB RAM

    ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 512MB VRAM

    Built-in iSight + Apple Remote (w/ Front Row 2 beta of course)

    Oh, and a very beta version of Leopard. It’s working great though. The devs have done a pretty good job. I can’t wait to show off this baby. I only have two words to describe one of the features I think you’ll love of this OS: Multiple D’s.

  22. Mr. SJ says:

    BTW, please don’t sue me. The GarageBand demo on the Keynote was really more of a homage to you rather than a ripoff.

    700MHz G3 Dual USB iBook with a paltry 384MB RAM.

    80GB HD, though. Which I installed myself. Oh yeah.

    Running 10.4.4 and the whole show.

  26. Renny says:

    I have eliminated the computer and now run everything entirely in emulation. Rosetta rocks on my Intel emulator that I am running under Virtual PC in Rosetta! The closed loop works great and the cost savings are a plus. I never feel like upgrading!
