I havent been able to include all kinds of configs due to the 10 options limit, thats why amd is not there. But pls anyone with some different or weird configs pls just list it over here.
Like PII 350 with 32mb ram or something.

CeleronII 633@952 w/ 256MB RAM

PIII 850 - 256 MB.
It was a PII 350 - 128 MB, but what with PIIIs being so damn
cheap now P4 is out, and I got the extra RAM just for the hell of it!

I've also got an old 486 DX2 50 (not even 66 :P ), its only got 12 meg, and sits on a shelf....
One day I'll get it out and play all those REALLY old games I've got!

OK, not entirely accurate; but just add 33Mhz and 64MB RAM. Close enough :)

Celeron 433 w/ 128MB

Afternoon, all.

CeleronIII 700 w/ 128MB
P166MMX w/ 32MB

athlon700 with 512 megs of ram = main box.
pentium-mmx 200 with 64 megs of ram = testbox (FreeBSD, win95, NT4)
K6-ii 333mhz, 128 megs of ram = kid brothers' computer.

I have a 486dx2-66 with 8 megs of ram in a box (works), scrap
pieces to build another computer, with one of the following processors
(that I have in a box, and use for combing my beard):

486dx2-66, 486dx4-100 (my first computer :)

Main Computer:
Athlon 1.3Ghz
93 gigs

Secondary Computer:
Dual Celeron 550 BP6
VooDoo3 3000
20 gigs

All home grown & tweeked processing goodness. :alright: I gave away all my old computers to family or used the parts in upgrades or system builds that I've done for people.

I am using the 600 PIII I built about 18 months ago. 768 meg sdram, 2 x 18 gig SCSIs and most of the useful things that can be plugged into it.

My backup box is about the same age, a 550 AMD K6-2 with 2 x 30 gig IDE disks and 3 128 meg sdram simms in it. Its handy enough to test progs on to see what the difference is between basic AMD to Intel architecture.

No mad rush to get another one, current box does all I need it to at the moment and the longer you leave it, the cheaper it all gets. :)

I have couple comps at home
old P5MMX 200mhz
new PIII with all extentions 755mhz
In my work ~ 100 PC all range (all P family)
up to PIV 1800.
And from a progammer point of view I most desagree
with the classification you preposed to vote for.

I voted for the PIII-500 since it's my main home machine.
But since my girlfriend is busy surfing, I'm on my backup, a Pentium 83 Overdrive with 16 meg, and Win-95/B. It's actually a pretty good machine to play with MASM on. :)

I've also got a 486/DX2-66, with a 16 gig. drive, that I use as a server, place to backup to, etc. Then there's the 386/DX40, 16 meg, Win-3.11. My friend's kids have some games on it that they play, maybe once a month.

I've also got a rocking 286/10, with a 2 meg. EEMS memory board, EGA, and a 300 meg. drive! That machine made a great BBS node. :) And I still have my classic IBM/PC. 256K, the full-height 360K floppy, CGA, and the 10 meg hard drive add-on. I haven't turned either machine on in over a year, but they both still work as far as I know. :grin:

And then there are the spart parts... ... ...

Here we have more PCs:

1.P3 750 128M 20GHDD
2.P2 400 256M 20GHDD
*but P3's ram broke so now its only 128M ;(
3.AMD Durom 750 128M Ram 20G HDD
4.AMD K6/2 400 128M 20G HDD
5.P100 16M 5G HDD (hehe the Linux server)

I use number 2 ;) so that is what i vote

and i dont feel the need to upgrade to a stupid P3 that has only 256K cache compared to my 512k ;)

sometimes (like in HE game) my P2/400/256M is faster then the P3/750/128M .... but in heavy calculations like in Anim8or os PoVRAy P3 and Duron goes much faster ;( that is why my artist girl uses the P3 ;)

DX2 120 AMD with 1 gig IDE disk and 16 meg ram.
Very reliable and much faster then I can ever type.

I thoght it might be interesting in context of the thread topic.
It's a part of an article from the "Byte":

As Grep and I came back from the woods, we saw somebody who presumably
lived in the house putting (more) trash in the pile. So I asked,
"What's wrong with the computer?"

"Nothing," I was told. "It's just too slow."

As you can probably imagine, I quickly went back home, returned in my
car, and put the computer, monitor, and keyboard in.

I didn't want to bring it inside -- "they come in but they don't
leave" -- so I grabbed a mouse and two power cables from the boxes in
my office closet, and set the rescued system up in what might be
considered a kind of mobile office.

While the details were hard to see in the bright sunlight, it was
clear that the PC did work; it came up with Win 9x, and reported
having a Pentium and 64 MB of RAM inside. That makes it possibly more
powerful than any machine I own (less RAM, though), perhaps even
faster than the 400-MHz Pentium that CMP has me using. It's certainly
more powerful than my five+ year old Pentium 133, which I powered up
this week while my CMP machine was out for software upgrades.

So off to a good home it goes. (I'll scrub the personal files off
first -- I may be a good Do-Bee and make a backup copy first, on the
off chance that there's somebody in that house who hadn't been
informed the system was being given the heave-ho.)

I accept that there are some machines that are old enough that it's
increasingly hard to find them good homes for. (Although I have at
least one friend who runs a business using older systems, including
286's running WordPerfect...and I've found a WordPerfect-oriented
author who wants one of my two ProLinear 386 DOS handhelds -- I may
try to sell him my old HP OmniBook 300.)

But there's got to be ways to find new homes for some of these
systems. It may not be a crime to throw them out -- but it's sure a
waste and a shame.
