    I've still got the same hunk of junk from 2011, although I've upgraded it a couple of times. It now has 16GB of RAM and some AMD Radeon HD 7700 card. It handles most things with ease so I haven't found a reason to upgrade yet. I can play most recent games with medium/high settings, but maybe I'll get a new system either late this year or next year. My laptop (actually a netbook) though is something else. It's not very powerful but it has a very nice feature...

    My computer's about 3-4 years old myself. It's a simple HP Pavillion that required way too much work than it should've, but it's lived long enough to be useful and I still like it. Now if I could just position the webcam enough to see me with my short body...xD But yeah. I don't have any add-ons to it...But I do have an extra computer which is a desktop, custom built by my aunt. I don't know the specs, but I know it has an amazing amount of speed for me and came with a full CS5 from Adobe!

    My computer is a custom built one from 2011. I forget most of the components but in 2011 it had the top of the line stuff in it and it cost me a fair bit. I've changed the graphics card once to an AMD one and will probably change back to an Nvidia one when I feel ready to.

    Well, I used to have an old (circa 2005) Macbook Pro, 15 in. screen. Shortly after Outlaw Star UK went down, the hard drive crashed and I lost everything on it. After putting a new hard drive in, I used that up through August 2013, when I got my current computer, and HP Pavilion notebook with a 13 in. screen. It was definitely a change, going from Mac to Windows again, but I got used to it, and this laptop serves me well. One I graduate from undergrad, though, I think I might get another Apple computer again.

    Mine is pretty badass!

    - Radeon HD 7750
    - 500 GB HDD.
    - 4 GB RAM.
    - Pentium G620 2.6 GHz (Dual Core).
    - 350W PSU.
    - Logitech MX518 mouse.
    - Some random keyboard with really cool design lol.
    - 19" LCD.

    Ok just kidding, it's really bad compared to nowadays standards. By 2020 I doubt it could even run the latest games on lowest settings, at all. Oh and the good thing about the motherboard is it's really flexible with upgrades. I could easily max the specs out by installing a really good i7 CPU, 16 GB of ram, and a GTX 980, but I'd need a much more powerful PSU of course.

    Holy crap Mantis, that thing looks like a beast!

    I decided to join the Mac crowd about a year ago now. Yeah yeah, I know. That's what I thought, too.

    I bought a refurbished model off of eBay for about £500, I'd never pay full price for an Apple product, but I'm not kidding when I say it's the best experience I've had with a computer. I haven't had a single crash, slowdown, f*cking tangled cables all over the place... it's just such a neat all-in-one package, I only have 3 wires and that's the power supply, keyboard and mouse. I thought I'd need to buy a pair of speakers, but the built-in ones sound great. And of course, viruses are out of the question. It may not be the most powerful, but it's been smooth sailing since day one and I love it.

    The ironic thing is that it plays TF2 better than any Windows machine I've owned. Max settings at 60fps, I was shocked to say the least. It even does a decent job of emulating Wii/GameCube games!

    I won't lie. It's handled every game I've thrown at it at 60fps+ with ultra settings on (and mods to enhance the graphics beyond ultra where possible) without breaking a sweat. It's the first real gaming PC I've owned and I got my last PC over six years ago. About time I treated myself, I thought!

    Haha, I don't think any less of you for joining the Mac crowd. Different strokes for different folks. Just so long as you're not a part of the Apple cult and aren't willing to queue for over a day for one of their latest products.



    ...But I already know the above isn't true! It's nice it came with decent inbuilt speakers. I can't live without the thud-thud-thud of great bass, personally! Otherwise music sounds flat to me. The Mac sure looks convenient, but I wouldn't say they're error-free. Just be aware. No computer—regardless of OS—will allow smooth sailing in the long term. I'm glad you're having a great experience with it though. Yeah, I hear some Macs can be pretty good for gaming. It's just a shame there's not much Steam game availability for them.

    Have you tried playing Crysis on it yet? I hear that's the ultimate PC game when it comes to graphics, though it's getting on in years these days so I wouldn't be surprised if it's been outlcassed.

    Haha, yeah-- I'm still in the 'honeymoon period' with my Mac. My previous PC experiences have been nothing but a hassle, it's so refreshing to have a machine that does exactly what I want it to without any hiccups for a change. But I'm sure it'll let me down eventually. It has to, technology always finds a way.

    That woman... Christ. I seriously hope that's staged, but deep down I know it isn't. 'Apple Five'? She doesn't even know what she's buying!

    Maybe a few years ago Crysis was indeed the king. If you threw Crysis at your PC and it handled it without problems, it would run any game. Nowdays though many games have taken over. I hear that Crysis 3, Far Cry 4, Grand Theft Auto V, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Ryse: Son of Rome and Witcher 3 are some of the heaviest hitters. Unfortunately I only have two of those which are Grand Theft Auto V which is as smooth as butter, and Ryse which I haven't played yet. I also got the new Doom with my PC, but also haven't got round to playing it yet. I hear it can be pretty intensive. As for the third Crysis, the joke's on EA who decided to put most of their games on crappy Origin, because I won't buy them on a platform other than Steam and many feel the same way.

    Yeah, I know how much a headache a faulty PC can be. It's frustrated the shit out of me in the past. So it's good it's hassle-free for you for the time being. I looked into whether that video is staged. Apparently it isn't. But logically speaking, how could it be? What kind of woman would be stupid enough to make it look like she's the biggest idiot on Earth? Actually, you only need to look at YouTube as a whole, and that goes for men and women.
