Mines a Toshiba M200 (tablet pc)

1.5 GHz Centrino package
1 GB of DDR Ram (upgraded from 512)
60 GB hard drive (down to 800 MB)
Built-in 802.11G

Halo plays without lag, and it's set to medium, so, not bad. I also use a Logitech Trackball mouse (the side-mounted kind), and it works wonders with Halo!

I built mine myself, and with a little help from my dad three years ago. I was only 12.

Pentium 4 1.5GHZ, 400 MHZ FSB
120 GB Hard Drive, and a 40 GB one
GeForce 4 Ti4600 128 MB Video Card
768 MB of RDRAM
SoundBlaster Audigy 2
Sony DVD Burner
Sony DVD Reader
17 inch CRT Monitor
Logitech Z-640 5.1 Speakers

I paid for it with the money I got from good grades. I got 300 dollars in 6th grade for getting this Presidential award for academics or something. The I got 300 more dollars in 8th grade for making Laurel Honor Society, which was like you had to get a 3.5 GPA average. And my parents paid for the rest.

My Dad's computer kicks ass though.

Two Intel Xeon 2.4 GHZ Processors, 400 MHZ FSB
Two 74 GB 10,000 RPM Hard Drives
250 GB SATA Hard Drive
1.5 GB of RDRAM
ATI FireGL 128 MB Video Card
SoundBlaster Live
21 inch Sony CRT Monitor
19 inch Sony LCD Monitor
Plextor DVD Burner
Sony DVD Reader

I was wondering for everyone who has a notebook. Did your notebook come with a cable input slot for dsl or jusr regular cable connection? Mine just arrived and I realiezed it had no cable hook up.(just modem) That really bites for I wanted to use it to play games. . .

Steroyd How can your computer stuggle with 256 MB of RAM when I have 32 MB od RAM and the Sims lags a little? I'm going to put 256 MB of SDRAM in my computer in 1 hour and your saying 256 MB will still lag? :cry:

On the bright side for you your computer is better then mine except I have a DVD burner.

O.K i exaggerated a little, it chuggs along when the smallest of things happens though, but i think it depends on the OS you use.

I had a Windows ME, and the first sims ran O.K but the framerate dropped every now and then (yeah i know...weird).

But when i upgraded to Windows XP...BANG, computer crashed everytime i tried to load it, and when it did work it'd only work for a while before my computer starts draggings it's heels.

Don't get me started on the sims 2 :shock:
two words..."barely playable" it'd take 10-30 minutes just to rotate the camera!!

That's what I thought Steroyd. I see a big improvement in speed but since my computer only see's 128 MB that means it's faster. I need help with that problem.

Some of you may remember I bought that video card recently when I found out this crap mobo has no AGP slots. I'm living off that till Christmas break when I go to NY and buy a new mobo and video card (preferably a Gigabyte mobo and a Sapphire X800). Haven't played much PC games on it, but I did finish playing Warhammer 40k: DoW on it awhile back. I'm saving up some cash until then and so far I got $33 US dollars... Pathetic, I know, but my birthday is coming up in November and I'm hoping for some cash then. If all else fails, I get it all for Christmas. :D

About $12,000 (including shipping) not including software (like virus protection).
Um..That is a ton of money right there. What kind of Job do you have!!? And $12,000 is a tad bit high for that because you could have got a AMD FX-57 CPU instead. Still a very high end rig.

It is the most expensive PC I have ever bought, but it is worth it. I had an Alienware before, but it broke down to a point that it was unfixable. I bought a Sony Vaio ($4,000) as short time replacement, but now I got another Alienware (at Alienware.com) and have added some configurations to Alienware Area 51 ALX.

This is my second and I have aways felt Alienware is the best out of all the PC's I have had. I have had an IBM, HP, Sony Vaio, Dell, and a Compaq.
