• A self-built intel i7-2600k with 16GB of RAM running Windows 7 x64 Pro (but UEFI mainboard = slow POST...)
• A Lenovo Thinkpad X61s with 4GB of RAM and an intel Core2Duo L7500 cpu.
I'm not keen on the "trackpoint" on the X61s, but it's very portable and still very capable, and the ability to run virtual machines on both of my computers is essential as I spend a lot of time working with Linux but I cannot justify the extra space needed for physical machines.
Prior to December 2012, I mostly used my Trusty old Dell D410 with Windows XP and 1GB of RAM for web development, as I preferred it's touchpad to the trackpoint.
(Ok, I admit it, "BattlePirates" on facebook didn't work so well on it either...)
I have the intention on moving the virtual machines to one of the racks at my current employers in the not-too-distant future.
For development of my websites I use the following:
Since first using a computer in 1982 - a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K - I have held a deep interest in computers, computing, and the benefits that these devices can offer.
Before the ZX Spectrum there was of course some gaming:
• Space Invaders
• Atari VCS 2600
After the ZX Spectrum, some of the computers I have used are:
• Amstrad PC1512 - upgraded to 640Kb of RAM! - DOS in BIOS, Monochrome display.
• Zenith Minisport (Wikipedia: Zenith Minisport on Wikipedia)
• Commodore Amiga - i've had many Amigas. Typically Upraded with extra RAM, faster CPUs, Hard Disks, DVD Drives, modems, and ethernet.
And at the moment, i'm watching the development of AROS - The AROS Research Operating System with interest, especially as there is now a Fork for Pi.... (No pun intended, but if they fork "E" for Pi i will probably chuckle a little..)
I have not spent as much time dabbling with My Raspberry Pi as I would have liked.
