    Come to think of it I may have kept my old original GameBoy - got it when I was 8. I've got a GB Color somewhere too.

    Ever since 2003, I lost a lot of interest in playing games mainly since it got so hard to find games rated E as they were almost always T or M, games I'd refuse to get (as I strongly dislike the adult content). Plus, much of the good stuff I've always loved has been taken out.

    /* own now, in order of most commonly played */

    NES (Metroid, Mario 3, and some others)
    Sega Genesis (mainly playing Sonic and drowning the fox, sometimes Bubsy)
    Playstation 1 (close third - between Bubsy 3D, Jumping Flash, and Spyro 2)
    Gamecube (Getting super high with Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Mario Sunshine are the only two actively played, others very rarely)
    PC (just Midtown Madness 2 as well as Zapper, both of which very rarely played, and in the very distant past, "Zeliard", and unless you consider my own creation, "The Supernatural Olympics").

    /*Once owned, in order of most wanted again */

    Atari (I grew up with the Atari; not sure which one though)
    Super Nintendo (for Super Mario World)
    Playstation 2 (no interest in any of the games; couldn't read disks after my sister accidentally dropped it)

    /*Once played but never owned nor rented */

    Macintosh (Number Munchers mainly - I reached level 40-something amazing my class)

    Me:

    Currently:
    an AMD Athlon Desktop
    didn't play any consoles except with emulators (e.g VGS, Bleem!, Genecyst, etc.)

    Before:
    an AMD 386 desktop --> how I miss her (my first love )
    an NES
    an Atari (forgot the type but I still remember that my games were pong and a tennis game)

    Well, I've been using AMD since the 386 family. And I dare to say AMD is better than Intel costwise. BTW, for servers, AMD is better than Intel. At least that's what ExtremeTech said.

    You're welcome. You must think I'm assuming you only use AMD and there for you're an AMD fan boy; I didn't. However regardless of what you choose to use, AMD, Mac, ... IBM, I suppose. You decided to single out Intel and that's what makes your an AMD fan boy. ...and welcome to General Discussion; The land of eventually off-topic posts.

    Not really, though. The newer Xeons (Woodcrest?) are supposed to be significantly better than the opetrons. I've never used either, myself, however. Both names are highly competitive in almost all respects. They go back and forth, I just don't know how anyone can take either side. Just go with what's leading at the time. You won't be disappointed.

    I just pulled my original Gameboy out, today. I was going to see if it worked but it needed batteries I don't have so I didn't bother. :/ Maybe tomorrow. I think it still works, though.
