GeForce 6600LE graphics card
(evrything else same as above)

My resurrected Dell Inspiron Notebook:
2.8GHZ Pentium 4M
CD burner
New LCD Panel
XP Home

This machine had a cracked screen and busted power plug... was given to me free. Got a new screen, did a little soldering to fix the jack, and now I got me a new notebook for 160 bucks!

I also have a PowerMac G3 that I use when I am in my shop.
350MHZ Motorola PowerPC Overclocked to 400MHZ
Mac OS X Tiger

These are the three machine I use all the time. If I had a choice, they would all be AMD's... but who can beat cheap. I have a passion for building computers, so I upgrade a lot. My old 1.6GHZ P4 is in the case of an old 266MHZ PI right now. I fabbed it inside, but the outside still looks like it is original!
