Are you a laptoper or a desktoper?
For what except Frihost do you use your computer?
Wich models do you have? If you have made your computer say what's inside
Or do you use desktop and laptop?
Me I use desktop and laptop (DV 9540) who are two computer HP
For some reason I don't like laptops. Maybe they're too small and I'm still "old-school".
I just built a new computer 2 weeks ago. Check out my specs (keep in mind that I saved up for that for quite a while):
- Asus P5B-MX MB
- Intel Quad-Core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 @2.66GHz
- 2GB RAM
- 160GB HD
- Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB
The overall box cost was around AUD$1700.
Since desktop can be upgraded and laptop well can also but u cant upgrade the board
I have a desktop PC. Although I would like the portability of a laptop, I find that I can do more with a desktop. First of all, it is fairly easy to take apart and upgrade various components (you can basically tear the heart of the machine and put a whole new system into the same case!). Secondly, a desktop PC is usually more powerful than a laptop (laptops have restrictions on computing power due to battery drain and overheating).
Here's my PC (I have put this together over the past two years):
Pentium 3.2 GHz
2GB DDR RAM
160GB IDE, 250GB SATAII
Radeon 9600 256MB
HD Digital Capture Card
Creative SB 7.1
5.1 Surround Sound System
Total was around $1200
I use my PC for multimedia purposes.
I recently just built my new PC. I switched from a laptop that I just bought about a year ago (really nice laptop by the way). I just decided I wanted more, so I went with the choice of building my own, plus it was fun.
Laptop spec: (only a year old)
Model: Compaq Presario v3000z series.
Athlon 64 x2 tl-52 (1.6ghz)
Nice black design.
Newly built PC:
- Foxconn C51XEM2AA nForce 590 SLI Motherboard (Great for overclocking)
- AMD Athlon 64 x2 Brisbane 3600++ 1.9ghz (Have it overclocked to 2.6ghz)
- G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (Have it overclocked to 1037mhz)
- WS 200gb HDD
- GeForce 8600GT 256MB Core clock 620Mhz, Memory clock 1600Mhz
- HIPER HPU-4K580 v2.2 580W Power Supply
- (3) 12mm fans
- Very cheap black case, that allows awesome airflow.
- Acer 20" widescreen LCD monitor (1680 x 1050)
- And of course the other stuff.
My presario laptop, a year ago, the retail price was about $1300. I got for $900 dollars then, new, in an auction on ebay (it didn't come with the warranty, but I haven't needed it so far).
The total cost of my PC was an incredible $870, excluding the shipping costs. I did a lot of research for my parts, but it was totally worth it, and to me, it just proved that building your own computer is way cheaper than buying a built one, plus you choose and you know whats in it.
I consider myself a heavy multitasker, and will push my computer to its limits, and so far this computer has been capable of running anything I throw at it at nice speeds. Including new games like Bioshock on full settings. Not the fastest computer out there for sure, but I got a damn good deal.
