PC-1 Lenovo Thinkpad x220i (Second hand cost only $125 :-D :-D)

i3 2310m 2.1GHz

12.5" IPS Screen

8GB of RAM (I upgraded from original 4GB)

250GB SSD (Upgraded from 320gb HDD)

Intel onboard graphics

Its a bit big and its heavier than i'd like but its pretty fast and it was cheap.


i5-4590 3.7GHz

22" Samsung LCD circa 2007



Intel Onboard graphics.

Thermaltake case circa 2006

My old AMD mobo system died to just put in a new mobo+CPU+ram combo into an old computer. Don't game much at all so a graphics card isn't a priority.

CPU: Intel Core2 Duo P9300 @ 800MHz

GPU: Intel built in one.


Its an old (Ancient?) Dell Latitude E4300 that I got for ~$200. I run Slackware on it, and I have to thank the devs for providing a SlackBuild. In this day and age just a basic Linux version of something is an ask, let alone a SlackBuild.

Thanks devs.

Sony Vaio Pro 13 Ultrabook

  • Intel i5-4200U, 1.6/2.6 GHz (base/turbo), 15W
  • 2x2GB DDR3 RAM, 1600 MHz
  • integrated Intel HD 4400
  • 128 GB SSD directly on mainboard via PCIe (6s booting record!); external 1TB HDD
  • 13.3'' Full-HD touch display
  • battery: officially 8h, >10h possible when idle
  • weight: a bit more than 1.0 kg (carbon)
  • costs: 700€

Would have cost 1000€ at least, but I got it cheaper since it was an exhibit. Super light, long battery and boots in no time (probably faster than sleep mode on my old notebook, lol). It's just the best thing for university and I have to grin when various people drag their laptops including power adaptors and looking for some socket (I was one of them once....). Had some hardware/driver problems at first though, but has become quite reliable now. Is not really suited for gaming, but handles all my old RTS games with ease (if I get them running on win10)... Of course 0 A.D. is a different story but I think with multicore support there is much possible.

Intel i5 2310, 2.9 GHz


With a monitor of 21" I sometimes think I should get a nice gfx card, but didn't bother to buy one yet.

Can't play anything fancy (like Witcher 3, Fallout 4 or Anno 2205), but I don't have a high budget anyways and hardware in my country is pretty expensive.

Still can manage to play Skyrim in 1600x900, though, and some older games, like League of Legends, Farcry 3 and Anno 2070 are playable in 1920x1080. By "playable" I mean 20+ fps in the heaviest parts (I agree it's not smooth at all, but it's still playable, it's what matters).

This cutey is ancient, but it's been my friend for 5 years now...

They are most likely use DX9 Windows 10 is now on DX12 and M$ has said that backward compatibility may be broken I had fun getting my old copy of UT2004 running.

Oh no... I didn't know that. I think it might be time to begin using Steam these days... Especially the new expansions for AoE2 and AoM have brought these good old games back. Though I have to admit that playing itself is annoys me more and more and I actually prefer making mods and thinking about balancing, strategies etc. So playing is more testing.

Palaxin, my wife have the same ultrabook as yours. It is such a beauty!

Yeah, the design is quite nice. I have also seen some other people using it... Does she have the black one, too?
