    Wow!

    Home:
    P3-500 (actually, the BIOS seems convinced, through no effort of mine, that it's a 515 Mhz), 128MB RAM, 13 GB 7200 RPM HDD & 40 GB 5400 RPM HDD - see it here...
    Work:
    Um.... Not sure - fast enough, that's for sure

    Everywhere:
    Palm Vx

    I don't have a computer. I use a x86 configuration of stones, sticks, and mud to beat tones onto a telephone line that is attached to my tongue.

    I get about 2400 baud on my fast days for connection rate, and about 10 processes per minute. My memory is CRS, and my bus speed is about 55 mph if there isn't any traffic.

    I have eighty friends that like to brag about how bad-ass their computer is and how well they can process AOL software and video games.

    I have people that I work with that can do more with a 486/100 than most people I have seen can do with their 1.8G.

    For some people, it is nice to have a $2,000 paper weight. I just think it is funny...

    It'll do anything a 486/100 can do, maybe even a bit faster

    Specially a Game Console, why would you be on cprog if you didn't have a normal computer?

    Oskilian
    Gaming Console - in Japan the PS2 has a Linux OS, thus allowing you to develope software using C or C++.

    I voted for PC, but use MAC, Laptops, MAINFRAME, and Computer not out on the Market. Just look at my pic by my name and you can guess what other computers I work on.
