Well, here's a PC I'm using as NAS, so techinically it should count.

Intel Celeron @ 400 MHz (66 MHz FSB)
256 MB SDRAM @ 66 MHz
VIA Motherboard
60 GB IDE Hard drive
52 x CD ROM drive
120 watt mini-ATX PSU
and, for the grand finale; an S3 Trio 2D/3D with 8 MB of VRAM!

I'd probably also have the worst laptop, because the battery is now dead on it. :(

If there is a worst laptop entry, I think my friend would win.

Compaq Contura 420CX
Year: 1994
CPU: i486 DX @ 40 MHz
RAM: 12 MB proprietry RAM
HDD: 100 MB IDE
Graphics: wtf? you expect graphics on this thing?
Screen: something crappily small, with a res of 640 x 480
Drives: Floppy drive. No CD. No USB. It does, however, have PC Card ports.
Input: Keyboard and trackball. Thats right, not a trackpad, a trackball!

It runs Windows 95, which takes up about 70% of the hard drive.
It has MS Office 95, and BioMenace!
Battery is NiCd, dead. The laptop still runs.

This IS my friends main laptop computer, and was his ONLY PC up until 2 years ago. :eek:

Bragging rights for the winners but it's just interesting to know how peoples computer compare too others.

I've added the Worst Laptop on TPU, previous laptop entries don't count, if you want to enter for the first laptop it's from now onwards, remember it has too be the best laptop you own.
I also made some other changes too the original post, if I'm missing anything let me know.

lol. I had a feeling that was coming. :roll:

@everyone: Theoretical here, what if I went Quadfire with 2 3870X2's?
You'd probably be first with that. 8800GT versus 9800GX2 and him having an extra 250gb HD is what put you too second. Although Your CPU in my opinion might be better (I don't know much about the E8500 though).
