I can think of many households/people that own more than one PC - especially us enthusiasts! How many do you own?

I have my main rig and an Apple iBook. But I've almost got enough spare parts for a second machine - so maybe I'll have three soon;)

Main rig, secondary rig, and IBM Laptop (paid for by the company). My son got an HP laptop as a unwanted gift which is now under negotiation to sell off to a friend.

Dear Quad

This might be slightly off topic but if you don't get any luck selling the laptop, would you consider me? I would DIE for one after being 14 months without my beauty (ex works one which went when I changed jobs). Might be getting a Blackberry with new works but have to see.....

Why would I not consider you? Of course I will, but I would not advise you to get it. Allow me to explain it in a PM which I will send to you shortly :)

About fifteen altogether (can't be bothered getting up and counting them). That includes the one laptop and a few Macs and all working. There's also enough spare parts to build about six more. That doesn't include the visitors' pcs waiting to be fixed.

I think I need a larger house. :)

Hi All...

Gabriella - I think postage would be a bit steep from the Indus Valley (is that right!??)

Quad - Whats up with it?

Techy - Your a nutter!

My rigs:

Sam - My PC
Best rig in the house - Abit IC7-G, 3.02GHz P4 (Oc'd), 512Mb OCZ PC4200 RAM (DC'd), 2x Samsung Spin Point SATA drives in RAID 0, ATI Radeon 9800pro @ 9800XT Speeds... Win XP

Turbonutter - Parents Office Pc
Second best - near identical to mine - Abit IC7-G, 2.8GHz P4, 512Mb GeIL PC3200, Samsung Spinpoint 80Gb SATA drive, ATI Radeon 9600XT, Win XP

Slug_On_Acid - Sisters Bedroom PC
Third best in house (Though it's dead at the moment - wont POST for some unknown reason, will start new thread when i get time) - AMD Athlon 2000+, Abit KV7 Mb, 256Mb PC2100 RAM, Seagate Barracuda SATA 80Gb drive, nVidia PNY FX5700LE @ MUCH faster speeds (see review!), Win XP

Eric - Lounge PC
Not the best one in the house - but it does do it's job. AMD Duron 1400 Applebred, 4Gb Quantum Fireball HDD, Integrated GeForce 2 Graphics, 256Mb Crucial PC2100 RAM, Win. XP

Posnet - The Network
Standard P2P network, Not Client-Server based, wouldn't for the life of me know how to set one of them up!! Files shared in shared folder, Shared internet connection.

Hardware
- Netgear DG814 ADSL Modem Router + 4 Port Switch (Not being used as modem)
- Connexant Hasbani 1 port Modem router
- 5 port Netgear FS105 autosensing switch

Complex i know....for what we have.... it works.

All of the above connects our network to the High Speed 2Mb (Uncapped) Internet connection we have.

Off to college now... Chris :)
