My first was a TI-994a. Hated it! Basic programming and no hard drive. The cartridge games for it were crap too.

From then on it's been mass produced, box kit systems. Don't need much pc to check HBT.

Abit AW8-Max intel 955X chipset
1GB DDR2 533 ram
Nvidia Geforce 8600GT 256mb
Realtek HD 7.1 onboard sound
WinTv HVR-1800 tv capture card
WD 36gb 10,000rpm with Gentoo
WD 320gb 7200rpm sata2 with windows xp



EDIT: my first PC was an IBM XT, something like this

Unfortunately I have to use 3 at the office.

One desk(floor) Top. main use.
One desktop for programming kit
One desktop (remote) on another site because of crap network and software issues.

And our IT guys wonder why I'm top of the IT call logger list.


Ed, I had one like that.

It was a "Luggable"

After buying the components necessary to build the machine including the special memory required there was not much savings but the machines were fast for the time. No pictures unfortunately.

We called the processor the Frankenstein chip because it had a couple of bolts sticking out of the case to attach the heat sink to.

Nice!!! Glad to see there are a few other people out there that got to experience a speedy system 5 years before the rest of the world. I had an Alpha 266 (21264 IIRC) that ran Redhat 5. My windows slowstation at work was a P75 I think. Windows 3.1 was a POS.

I had a screensaver rom distributed.net that cracked DES keys loaded on a couple windows boxes and one Alpha running Linux. The Alpha cranked out 20x the number of blocks as the pentium.

On a side note, I was just out in Sunnyvale for work last week and went to the computer history museum. It was pretty cool, but by far the neatest thing was a working model of babbages difference engine. I happened to walk in just as a guided tour started. What an incredible piece of machinery.

Edit: Watch the video here... Awesome

I had the more compact version "The CoCo" but it does remind me of the old Goldline TEF10's from a few years back.



also "luggable".

SWMBO and I each have one of these, Mine is named Jezebel:

Hers is 2.16ghz/120gb/2gb, mine is 2.2ghz/120gb/2gb.
I also have a 17" G5 iMac upstairs in my bedroom, he's named Dante.

This is Odin.

He's an Athlon 64 X2, 2gb RAM, and 750gb hdd space. He's my media server.

And then this is Duolith. He's at home right now, I can't take a pic. But this is the case he's in.

He's an Athlon 64 X2 4700+, 2gb ram, 512mb Radeon X1650 Pro, and a 160gb sata drive.

Finally, this is Randal, my work computer.

2x 2.66GHz Xeon, 5 GB ram, 1.5 TB disk space. No Apple Cinema display here, I don't like 'em. Instead a 20" Sharp and a 24" Widescreen Samsung lcd monitor.
