    Intel Core Duo 2Ghz
    4GB ram
    1GB nvidia
    360gb hard drive
    bluray/dvd-r drive
    18.4" monitor

    (on a laptop...)

    loving the puter so far...except vista of course. but luckily i get a free upgrade to Windows 7 starting on June 26th.

    the one thing that annoys me the most is the wireless internet speed bounces up and down. my old xp laptop hung out at 54mbs. this one maxes out at 39mbs...and bounces up and down from 1mbs all the way up to 39mbs. the fun continues tonite when i get home from work as i install driver upgrades looking for stability. yay.

    Discrete Audio adds awesome sound but it's impractical.

    New PC ordered today :D

    - MSI P55-GD65 Mobo
    - Intel Core i3 530
    - Sapphire HD5770 Vapor-X
    - Kingston LoVo 2x2 GB 1600mhz cas 9, 1,25V
    - Samsung F3 7200rpm 1TB
    - 550W OCZ Z power supply (80 Plus Silver certified)

    ... But I ran out of funding and, since my laptop died, I need a computer sort of... yesterday.

    Similar specs here. A Compaq wotsit-me-do-dar.
    XP SP1
    IE 6 (or netscape, if I want the internet to look old-fashioned).
    128mbRAM
    60Gb hard disc
    Two 3.5" FDD (because thats all you need for a months writing).
    One 5.25" FDD. Because its cool.
    and an incredibly s...l...o...w... modem.

    All writing done on wordpad. Its not worth spending office on.

    I do have a working ZX81, but alas! It only has 1K RAM and cannot load Tasword. From tape. I'll have to keep the speccy a little longer (I wrote loads of odds and sods on that particular antique prior to being given this box a few years ago. Ahh! Playing a tape on the 'datadrive' whilst it searched for a particular file name...)

    I will try but you'll have to to join the Spelling Srigade and do 100 hours of pronoun volunteer work.

    Corporal Past Tense is going to be your commanding officer. He's old school Spelling Brigade, but he's the best there is. You'll learn a lot about grammar from him. Or die in the process, you illiterate scum!




    ....ROFLMAO!

    But I'm a graphic desinger.. its my job to not know how to spell. If graphic designers knew how to spell, we wouldn't make any money on re-prints.

    lol corporal past tense.
