    CPU: AMD 1200 Duron
    RAM: 256 MB SDRam
    HARD DRIVE(S): 60 gig SeaGate 7200rpm, 20 gig SeaGate 5400rpm
    CD DRIVE(S): Sony 24x10x48 CDR/RW, Samsung 16x48x DVDRom/CDRom
    SPEAKERS: Altec Lanseng 40 watt subwoofer/sat speakers
    VIDEO: Hercules Prophet Geforce II MX 64 meg

    Not too high-end but it gets the job done.

    For additions I'd highly recommend a second physical hard drive. If not for back ups, then at least to keep things in their place. Also an excellent thing to have if Windows decides to totally hose itself and you want to recover data through a second fresh installation.

    Nice setup, but you may want to fork over a couple more bucks for the Athlon 2400+. Overall that is a good setup, with an awesome video card.

    Toshiba laptop:

    Pentium III-M 1.1ghz
    RAM: 256mb
    Hard Drive: 20gb something or other (IBM Travelstar IIRC).
    CD-Drive: Toshiba 8x DVD
    Sound: ALi Audio Accelerator (crap sound card)
    Speakers: Sharp surround sound HiFi - 4 speakers.
    Video: Trident CyberBlade XP 16mb (very crap video card).

    My old laptop had a Yamaha sound card and an 8MB S3 Savage video card and had much better video performance but only PIII-M 700mhz.

    For backups I keep a copy of my documents on the Linux fileserver which is a cheap headless box with 3HDDs (I'm thinking of adding a 4th).

    If I can ever find a job, I'll put in 1 GB of DDR (my mobo can support either SD or DDR RAM) and upgrade to a faster processor, and add 2 additonal HDs, and get a new video card (My voodoo3 has served me well ).

    It is! I got the NIC for $2, but shipping was $5.99. The shipping must be nicer than the chipset.
