    I currently own a 2015 Dell latitude E5440, sadly, it died.
    Intel Core i3 4th gen @1.90Ghz dual core
    12Gb 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM
    1Tb Seagate Firecuda SSHD
    Intel Integrated HD Graphics 4400 1Gb

    I used to own a 2005 Dell Optiplex GX 620.
    Pentium 4 series quad core@3.2 Ghz
    AMD Radeon 5 something I think GPU
    3Gb DDR3 RAM
    160Gb Western Digital Black Series HDD



    I just realized I put this in the wrong section. @Nadeox1, can you move this to the computers section, please?

    Well, wrong thread. It should be in Computer Hardware.
    OT: Currently I have a Dell 7577, with a i7-7700HQ and a GTX 1050 Ti with 8GB RAM.
    Previous laptops: Lenovo S410p (i5-4200U, GT720M, 4GB), some Acer laptop which I forgot.

    I know... I didn't realize it until I posted this thread. Sorry.
    OT: Is that "7577" a workstation , or what? I would assume so.

    Well I used to have a built PC (quite old) with intel Duo 3.0 Ghz CPU, 12GB DDR3 RAM and Nvidia GTX 250... It died.
    So I've gathered some money and built myself another PC with:
    Intel I7700K CPU
    16 GB DDR4 Ram
    Nvidia GTX 1050 TI
    And a fancy dual fan Grandis cooler.

    It was quite an expierience moving from a turd that could just about run NFS U2 on high settings to this thing that didn't have problem with running pretty much anything I threw at it so far.

    ha. My dad still has this computer only with an AMD CPU, and some more RAM and whatnot. He still uses it for some stuff. I've never had any problems with Windows 10, except with my laptop which had a driver that cuased it to die on me. (at least I have Ubuntu!) Btw, I love Windows 10.

    Oh yeah I just remembered... I was recently given a partially broken laptop (most of the parts still work though so its good for parts). It has an old AMD Turion 64 X2 CPU in it (AMD64... good memories, my first new PC had an Athlon 64 in it and it embarrassed my friend whose P4 Extreme Edition wasn't performing much better than it despite costing a lot more). Anyways, I've now got my hands on multiple old Toshibas and it looks like I'll be able to get a fully working laptop together using the parts.

    2 GB of DDR2 RAM
    AMD Turion 64 TL-56 dual-core
    120 GB HDD

    I'm unsure of the GPU, but it won't matter at all for the games I plan to run on it. For some reason I like salvaging old hardware to assemble working systems out of. Its kinda fun.

    I used to have some black-cased monster when I was younger, I think it was a Dell but I'm not certain. Pretty sure it had 2GB of RAM, and it had a 400 kW power supply which I shoved into my newer one. It was massive, and a potato which couldn't run s**t lol
    (OS: windows vista, later upgraded to 7 home)

    Also had a OptiPlex 980 w/ 2GB of DDR3, a AMD Radeon something (idk where it is and I'm not exactly a computer expert lol), an Intel i3 core (this was my potato), and a 250 kW power supply. Could run some pretty big games, but really badly. (OS: windows 7 professional)


    My current is a Dell OptiPlex 7010 (AKA extraterrestrialware areas-of-the-5511), the first computer I ever owned that actually wasn't a potato!
    Here's a detailed list of the specs because I like showing off:

    OS: Windows 10 pro
    CPU: Intel i5 (from around 2014)
    GPU: MSi Radeon R7 250 (overclocked)
    RAM: 16 gb of DDR3
    Power supply: 400 kW
    Monitor: 22" Spectre

    that's about all.

    I built my PC a couple years ago. It's pretty nice, and a hell of a lot better then the old pentium media center I was using. It's received a few upgrades, and it is currently:

    CPU: Intel i5-3570k @4.5 GHz
    Mobo: ASRock z77 extreme4
    GPU: Asus ROG strix GTX 1060 6 GB
    RAM: 16 GB @1633 MHz
    Storage: 1 TB HDD, 250 GB SSD, various old HDDs as backup disks
    PSU: 600 watt
    OS: Windows 10 (when Windows update isn't corrupting my drives)

    Just curious, what is it specifically? My current laptop is fading and I'm looking around for a new one.
    (I'd like to get this one, haha. https://us.msi.com/Landing/GS65_Stealth_Thin_8RX#firstPage I know, I know... it's $2,000) :p;)
