Name every pc you owned (include specs)

As a little kid there were a lot of Win95/Win98 PCs. Then we got Windows 2000. Then there was a Windows XP in the house which was the first PC I really started messing around with, and then I got my first laptop, which was an ASUS. It was pretty bad. It was on Windows 7 and that's about all I remember. Then I got a computer from a school auction that had Windows XP on it, which I updated to 7.

 

I started college and got my first gaming PC and a macbook pro. Both had i5 processors and the PC had a 2GB ATI graphics card and 8GB ram. I moved from Win7 to 10 on that PC at some point.

 

I moved out and only kept the macbook pro, which I bootcamped to use Win10. I eventually got the PC I use now, which has 16gb ram/i5 10400F/1660 super. It was the first one I built entirely on my own and I'm pretty proud of that. Lots of things I would change for next time but that's all it is, for next time.

 

I haven't kept anything over the years but I wish I did. I really like tinkering and stuff, and I want an XP machine around anyway for compatibility reasons.

Not gonna list specs, but my first was an acer laptop from Walmart of all places around 2008 i beiieve. I upgraded to an hp desktop in 2011 and got a gaming laptop in 2013. Surprisingly the laptop has still held up well and i use it to play lower end games.

 

My latest pc is from 2019 and has a 8700K and a 1070ti. It's definitely approaching the end of its life cycle so I am starting to look around for new PC's again. Really hoping that prices will smooth out eventually. Would be cool to a 4000 series card and go all out.

 I am on the 3rd or 4th build in this case alone. I've had computers I can't even remember owning. The old one I liked the best was a socket 462 AMD with a 1 ghz Athlon. It came with 256 meg of ram and a Radeon 7000 graphics card. It was a Micron prebuilt but Micron built a very good PC back in the day. Most PCs were running about 500 mhz and I was running twice that. I was top for about 15 minutes. That machine was a huge leap for me, I've never really had an intense jump like that since. My i5 2500K build was a pretty big jump coming from a Core 2 quad 6600. I just can't remember them all.
 I've had dozens of computers. I've given away 3-4 good laptops just because I don't like laptops. I've been at this for a while. I'm like 62 years old.

  1. Commodore PET 4016: can't recall the specs off the top of my head... but it had an external tape drive
  2. Commodore 64: can't recall the specs off the top of my head, but it had a 5.25" external floppy drive
  3. IBM 386 with Windows 3.1, 386MB hard drive space, 16MB of RAM, 2x CDRom drive, 3.5" floppy drive, 800x600 display output, SoundBlaster 16 sound card
  4. NEC Versa V/50 laptop, 16MB of RAM, 860MB hard drive, Windows 3.1, PCMCIA, removable floppy, colour screen (TFT), but I forget what CPU it had...
  5. No-brand Pentium II with 256MB of RAM, 8MB video ram (SIS integrated graphics), 5GB hard drive, 52X cdrom, 3.5" floppy, 250W PSU, and later swapped in the SoundBlaster16 from the IBM PC when the onboard audio died. 
  6. Compaq Presario S5010NX, 256MB RAM, 40GB hard drive, Intel i810 integrated graphics, Celeron 2.5GHz (don't remember the specific model), 230W PSU which later turned into a toaster. 
  7. No-brand tower PC with an Athlon 1800+, 256MB RAM (later upgraded to 1GB), 40GB hard drive, Integrated GeForce 2 MX graphics, DVD-ROM drive, later upgraded to have a DVD+-RW drive, again later upgraded to increase hard drive capacity, then used it as a router for a couple of years before replacing it with a cheap laptop. 
  8. (at some point I had another HP computer which I pulled off the side of the road, 40GB HDD, 256MB ram, some kind of celeron processor, but it ran away one day when I was at school). 
  9. ACER WLCI(somethingorother) laptop 1.2GHz celeron processor, 256MB Ram, I don't know much else about it other than it was enough to play Midtown Madness.
  10. ASUS EEEPC 701 with 512MB RAM, 4GB soldiered hard drive (no expansion option), 7" screen.  I believe this had a Celeron processor underclocked at 600MHz
  11. ZaReason Terra HD laptop, 14" screen, 1GB ram, some kind of 64-bit capable dual core ATOM processor, 320GB hard drive.  Later the frame cracked and the battery died, so I bought a USB NIC and started using this laptop as a network gateway/router.
  12. Acer Aspire laptop with I3 530 processor, 6GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, 15-inch(ish?  Maybe 17?) screen.  Currently my daily driver laptop.
  13. Home-built Phenom II X4 965 BE with ATI HD4200 integrated graphics, 4GB RAM (was 8 at one point, but one of the memory channels died), currently 4TB of storage in RAIDZ1+0 serving as a storage server, but was my main daily-driver from 2010 to 2016/17.  Upgraded around 2015-ish to add a GTX750TI. 
  14. Home-built Ryzen 3 1300x with 8GB RAM, 512GB NVME SSD+1TB HDD, re-using the Compaq Presario case, Blu-Ray drive, GTX 750TI (from the Phenom build). 

I know I'm forgetting a few.  Computers 1 through 9 and 12 were hand-me-downs/computers that I saved (or scrapped together) from the municipal garbage dump, 10,11,13,14 were ones I spent my own money on.  Except for 3, 7, and 8, all of these computers still work; #7 I think I can fix, but it's not worth it.  The No-brand Pentium II was basically scraped together from whatever I could find.  There's something of a story behind each computer, but I've already written too much.  The real story is that I need to get rid of some of these. 

If I have to explain every detail, I won't talk to you.  If you answer a question with what can be found through 10 seconds of googling, you've contributed nothing, as I assure you I've already considered it.

 

What a world we would be living in if I had to post several paragraphs every time I ask a question.
