I had a compaq PC previously but the processor got fried when I tried to over-clock it - that's all I'm going to say about that. Now I do all my php on my dell optiplex (call me a sellout if you want) which is about 2 yrs old.
The crappy silver speakers aren't mine, the one I had before exploded if you play them too load which my nephew often does (he likes the noise). Yes that is duck tape, music makes the whole go round. The machine is a 1.6 mhz Dell with 256mb of RAM. There is a 16mb ATI graphic card in there (yes it sucks but I have a GameCube). 17 inch monitor, 1290 by 1024 pixels because there are 174 files on my desktop 58 of which are called New Text document(n).txt. The playstation controller and my cell phone is connected through the USB port. The printer is borrowed because I don't need to print anything - hardcopy? What is hardcopy? Paper pollutes the environment so do CRT moniters.
The Cds are all blank except the green one which is AOL 9.0 optimized which I can't use in jamaica but comes with the full version internet explorer 6 point something. There is a 3 and a half inch diskette there as well - diskettes are cool. I don't have a burner because I don't know if I could resist the temptation.
And yes the keyboard is pretty dusty I know. Dust is my friend. I could have built a PC if I wanted to, yes it would have been cheaper but I a software guy - leave me a lone. I'm gonna buy a 12 inch apple lap top - eventually. OSX kicks but.
