    Computers of the Bulldog Faithful

    Curiosity mixed with an interesting event brings up this question. What kind of computers are used by the Bulldog faithful? I'll start. I own a Toshiba laptop and a desktop that I had built for me.

    I couldn't figure out how to make it so you could vote for an option multiple times, so if you have multiple of the same computer, please let me know.

    Re: Computers of the Bulldog Faithful

    I've got a MacBook and HP laptop that I carry with me everywhere. Two HP desktops at home. In front of me right now, I have 3 HP laptops, a Gateway laptop, and a dell desktop.

    I used to have a Panasonic Toughbook, that was awesome. Not really a powerful machine, but almost unbreakable, at least until you give it to a roughneck.

    At work I use a MacBook Pro, but at home I have two eMachines. How about that combination!

    A Gateway desktop at the house that I never use. And an Acer Aspire 9500 laptop at the office/home. (I take my work computer home because I like it better)

    Re: Computers of the Bulldog Faithful

    At work, of course, I use Dell Optiplexes. At home I have a Dell Dimension, likely the last Dell I will own. I really liked their almost eternal support, but they now charge you even for a phone call once your extended service plan expires.

    If you know what you are doing you can build a machine for half what Dell charges. If you don't know what you are doing and don't mind paying for the extended service, Dells are virtually worry free as long as the service plan is in effect.

    I also have an old E-Machines with a P3 for my emergency backup computer.

    So, my personal computer is a Dell Dimension 4700, P4 3.2 Ghz, 1 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, dual-booting Win XP and Linux.

    Re: Computers of the Bulldog Faithful

    Dell XPS 400 desktop and a Gateway laptop...

    Am looking to upgrade and/or completely replace both by the end of the year...

    All kinds of zany stuff. I visit this here website on an old Gateway that I turned into a Fedora Linux box.

    I also have a laptop and a substantially robust gaming rig for my nerd fix.

    I do a lot of the web surfing on my Wii as well. X-Box 360, Apple TV, and 50" 1080p plasma television on the horizon.

    How do you like the Apple TV? I played with one a an Apple Store, but wasn't incredibly impressed with the resolution. Maybe it wasn't set up right, or something. The picture was kind of fuzzy. What connection are you using? I'd be hooking up with HDMI.

    Re: Computers of the Bulldog Faithful

    I like it! It was really an impulse buy, but it really has its uses. I think I'll get a lot more out of it once I upgrade to the 1080p HDTV. Really looking forward to watching my movies and TV shows from my computer on there.

    If you have a lot of stuff on your iTunes, it's really worth it.

    Re: Computers of the Bulldog Faithful

    I just ordered a new dell inspiron notebook, and I'm expecting to receive it in the 1st week of August. Dell and my employer offer a program where we can purchase computers with a minimum discount of 10%. Free shipping, free upgrade to 160GB hard drive, and free upgrade to 2GB of 667MHz RAM. My employer will also let me pay for it through 26 payroll deductions, INTEREST FREE. I am getting the dual core AMD Turion prcessor.

    What are your opinions of the AMD processors? This will be my 1st.

    Intel Celery ~ NLULM (pure shit)
    Pentium ~ Centenary (not bad, just not the best)
    AMD ~ Louisiana TECH (You can't get any better)

    My first computer I built had a Pentium processor, and my Dell has it as well. They aren't bad. EVERY other computer that i've built and upgraded has AMD. At the time that I purchased my Dell they didn't sell AMD.

    I use to have speed tests somewhere, but you can see that AMD is the best hands down. For a Pentium processor to achieve the same speed and performance of an AMD processor, you have to increase the mHz by about 30-40%. (The Pentium 3.0Ghz and the AMD 2.2Ghz run about the same)

    Also, that's a fantasic deal through your company. Who do you work for??
