What computer/laptop do you own?

Recommended Posts

I have a Acer Aspire ASE380 Desktop and I plan on getting a better PC soon, but this does the job so I can work on my website. I'm think of getting a Asus laptop. What computer/laptop do you own?

The main computer I use is my laptop and it is an Acer Aspire 7551. I have another older Acer laptop setup as a Windows Home Server for my house. Then I also have a custom-built CoolerMaster that I built on my own with parts from a local computer store called G&G Computers!

I recently switched all of my computers over to Lenovo brand. I have a Lenovo all in one desktop, a Lenovo Ideapad laptop, and a Lenovo A1 Tablet. So far I've been very pleased with the build quality and operation of all 3 devices. I've had 3 Dell computers stop working on me in the past 6 years, and decided enough was enough,

Most laptops and computers you can upgrade, just generally most are simple but you can get the fiddly ones as well. Also for overclocking, its varies, depending on the hardware inside the system, if it supports it or not.

Seems, I am ancient when I read about the specs above :lol

 

I have two of these here. One is since 1998 (I told you I was ancient) - and it still runs fine with the Celeron Processor and 512 MB RAM. It has a 20GB HDD which makes all those sounds as the heads read and write... but still, it is going on well for my offline work - I have Ubuntu 3 on that.

 

The other one I have which I use frequently for work has XP and Ubuntu 11.10 - I did not upgrade that to Ubuntu 12.10. And it has 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HDD and dual core Intel Processor. I got this one during 2007.

 

Both of my computers are assembled by me and have been working fine (touchwood) though, I have had to change the Keyboard and Mouse on them many times - still that has not been an annual affair...

Right now I just have a Toshiba Satellite laptop. I have been pretty impressed with it. I use it for hours everyday for work and have had it for 4 years. I am looking into getting a desktop but can't decide if I want a touch screen or not. I am really looking at the new Vizio desktop computers. I love the way they look.

I personally don't like touch screens, that may be because its not very productive for me, as for graphics design its not the best option and also gaming. Obviously you can setup keyboard and mouses, but that defeats the point of having a Touchscreen. Also i prefer to build all my own systems, as i get the performance and look i want.

Even I prefer assembling my computer myself. I upgrade the motherboard, CPU, RAM and HDD of my desktop every other year to keep up with the latest PC configuration. I do own an ACER laptop but I haven't upgraded it in last 3 years and I am probably going to buy a new laptop in January next year.

I tend not to keep my own computer up to full system specs, as its an expensive route, but always try to keep pretty close to the new market, as you can tell with the i7 and such that im running.
