Kinda Nice Having 3 Computers




I have Windows Vista, TinyXP, and Mac OS X Tiger.


I used to have linux (and many versions of it) on my netbook but then realized fuck it I'm a gamer/windowsprogrammer. So i switched to TinyXP (because I have a 4gb ssd i couldn't fit anything bigger than a 256mb ISO image on it)

Hm

First main computer is a Desktop which has a

intel core 2 quad Q8300 series 2.5ghz processor with.. i believe 6mb cache (or 4... not sure)

7200rpm 1tb harddrive
7200rpm 750gb harddrive (secondary, and is significantly faster because it's less used)

NVIDIA GeForce 9800 graphics card (768mb memory) and I know nothing else about it

8gb ram (don't know the speed, but I also don't really care Razz )

It's my main gaming computer, my main work computer, and my main media computer. I HAVE SO MUCH EXTRA CRAP ON IT :/

I need atleast 1.5gb of storage right now to store all of my media.



2] MacBook Pro

I got it ... maybe 4-5 years ago.

Processor = 2.16ghz processor intel core 2 duo

3gb ram (i installed a 2gb chip because it was ridiculously slow at one point)

it's the fastest booting machine in the house.

111gb harddrive

Graphics card, i have no clue but i'm not complaining.

What I use this for? Well my Mac saved my ass on several occasions (mostly through the use of iMovie, it's so easy to use and fast)

But now I have Sony Vegas on my desktop so I won't be using it anymore.

hmm I just use it for basic web surfing, itunes, adium. that's about it besides the occasional editing my source files via textedit.

3] Netbook.

AH HERE IS WHERE THINGS GET AS BAD AS THEY CAN

specs:
4cell battery (about 4 hours ... which is good enough for school)
runs TinyXP (but doesn't show me the battery icon... meh i sacrificed my battery icon for windows. oh well)
1gb ram
1.6ghz intel atom processor
4gb ssd (this is FUCKING LAME!!!!!)

I installed... maybe 25+ operating systems on it by now.
Very VERY VEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYY portable! not that great for gaming since the screen is 8.9inches large.

it's a EEEPC 900A. so .. yeah there you go.

Also more people should write blogs. this is fun.

Ah. I don't like linux. It doesn't support screens as big as mine.

I think Linux can probably support that... or probably at least Debian based ones.

I was using Knoppix to recover. 3/4 of the screen was black, but there was still stuff there I couldn't see.

my netbook is an Acer Aspire One AOD150-1165 (I know it's AOD150 but I'm not 100% sure about the 1165, I can't remember if it is or if it is something else)

I have like 0.95 TB total, I think. I forgot how much my laptop is, so I didn't count it. It's probably something like 1.4TB with it...
