Post Your Non-Apple Computers.

We all love our Macs, that's a given. So here is a thread to go ahead and show what else you have or use.

What else do you guys have?

I'll start with my 2 Pcs, the first of which is really the more interesting one.





My Alienware Area-51 M7700 (D9T)
3.4ghz Desktop Pentium 4 CPU with hyper-threading, 3gb ram, 500gb Scorpio black sata hdd (i was amazed i could use a sata hdd connector for a newer alienware for this and its raid connector inside) Ati Radeon X800 Pro GPU. This laptop cost around $5000 back in 2005 when it was new! Back when Alienware was not owned by dell, a real Alienware.
Also out of any laptop, this thing has THE BEST internal speakers ive ever heard. Has a 4.1 speaker system in it with a subwoofer that actually makes an audible difference!
It weighs nearly 20 pounds too!

This is a laptop I took a gamble on and bought "non-working" because the seller didnt have a power cord or any hard drives with it.
I ordered a power cord and a sata hdd cable, stuck in a sata hdd I had laying around it actually worked great!

I primarily use this for windows 95/98/XP games. Its wonderful for all the older games.

My other PC is my little Dell Optiplex 760 I use for my HTPC:

Small, cheap ($50 on ebay if you hunt right) and has a 2.93ghz Core 2 Duo CPU in it.
I also have a front-end setup on it with a bunch of rom libraries on it for NES,SNES, Sega genesis, and many other full library collections of roms.

That was pretty standard for laptops around the late 90s/early 2000s (at least for mine). Most printers were parallel port at the time and thus, needed it to connect to the laptop.

So do you have to turn your tablet to Airplane mode for takeoff?

Here's my PC's... Haven't built a new one since 2008...

It's changed since. I now have an Apple Wireless keyboard and am using an old Vizio 22-inch RAZR LED LCD 1080p television set. Too lazy to take new pics; maybe later?

@ranviper,

Sweet setup!

@macalla,

What one is that? Sweet stuff!

Here's mine. Nothing spectacular but it gets the job done. Really looking into getting a Surface Pro 3 for my Windows machine.

Thanks.
No regrets, I love it! I got the Pro 2 because it has the EMR screen which you can use a S-pen on. I use this tablet to take handwritten notes in class, at meetings etc, with OneNote. The Samsung S-pen experience beats the capacitive pen input by a long shot. The touch screen deactivates when it senses the S-Pen near the screen so you can rest your palm on the glass while writing.

Then I take the tablet home, dock it and transcribe my notes with the full desktop set up as seen. Runs the full word/excel/powerpoint suite.

You get the full windows desktop experience and portable tablet in one device.
