In terms of computers, what do you use? Personally I use a mac laptop, an iBook G4.

I'm really just curious if there's about an even of all of them- or mostly one or another.

I have a 98 gateway. It didn't want to play Doom 3 until I tweaked the settings.

I have a costum built comp named Drake. My best friend says it's huge, but I think he's normal sized….

Anywho! I have a windows XP program that my dad let me use. I don't know what exactly is in my comp since my dad is the one who takes me ta buy the stuff and then he installs them for me…eheh

I do know the programs I use on Drake, though. I use Adobe Photoshop CS2, I also have the other Adobe programs, but I don't use them. I have a Ragnarok Online server, a Tales of Pirates mmorpg, and a ZSNES emulator. I have the standard messengers, and lots of music that I listen to while doin stuff. Of course, there is also Microsoft Office, courtesy of my father.

That's basically what all I use.

Anything that deals with the outside of a computer…yeah, that goes over me head. Eheheh, sorry! All I know is that I have some of the good stuff in Drake and he's a happy camper. I love my Drake, yes I do!
I've too many mottos ta say here, so be glad I'm not saying any of them.

Tale of Two Kitties is Soon to Come…weheheheh!

some old clunker from around 2000, and not even good in its day. It's big enough to kill a bus load of children if dropped upon them. I know. I tested it.

I just use a PC. It is fast enough to run PS CS2 and a few other programs at the same time. That is all I need. The only thing I wish….I wish it shot lasers

My PC is custom-built and I bought it on eBay (woohoo!) a couple of years ago. I've since upgraded it numerous times. It's current name is Kino (it changes every time a hard drive dies). So currently, Kino has the following:

3 Ghz Intel Prescott processor
1 GB DDR RAM
120 GB Seagate hard drive
256 MB Nvidia video card
Windows XP
Paint Shop Pro 6 and 9
19“ LCD monitor

I bought a Dell laptop a few months ago and use it equally now.
I named it Chi.

Chi has:
1.6 Ghz Intel duocore (not duocore2, sorry)
2 GB DDR2 RAM
80 GB hard drive
256 MB Nvidia Go video card
Windows Vista Premium
Paint Shop Pro 9
15.4” glossy lcd screen

My college happens ta have a few Mac comps around campus. I've caught people taking advantage of the fact that it's got messenger and a cam, thankfully no one's gone too far with the cams yet.

Anywho! Are Mac's good fer drawing? Cause on my attempt ta understand those comps, I located a webcomicing program that seemed like it'd be good ta use.

Oh, and OZ, GO ANALOGUE!!!

Macs are generally considered an artist's computer (but, if you're a gamer, this might not be your best bet). they have a bunch of screen settings and stuff- and they're really user-friendly. It's the only thing I use. I used Photoshop Elements on mom's PC, but I didn't like it as much.

I have a Macintosh G5, an ancient old monitor that needs to be replaced, and a wacom tablet.

I wont bore you all with my “Macs are best” evangelicalism. But I used to do computer service for Macs and a variety of PCs - and I formed strong opinions.

BUt sheesh, I would really like a new monitor! Nowadays, they make em all flat and purty. But I cant yet afford one big enough to make it worth doing.

Nothing special here. A Dell laptop and a Dell PC at times with my Wacom tablet.

A.. desktop PC. I don't know what it is, it's custom built and I didn't build it. It's getting up there in the years and it's not quite as fast as it used to be, though. =p

15 inch PowerBook G4. It's pretty fast, I could check the specs with a click but I'm not going to.

Currently for my drawing I use whatever the newest version of photoshop is with a 5X4 (or is it 4X5?) wacom tablet… its small but I'm poor :(
Everybody wants that fold of matches to reinflate their confidence.
