Desktop on my 13.3" white refurbished 2006 model MacBook I recently acquired from a local Apple reseller that opened up here recently. It's a great little machine, especially for its age. :)

They sell refurbished products that old in Apple stores? Never knew that :blink:

It's not an official Apple store; it's basically a computer repair shop that specializes in fixing up old Apple computers (they are an Apple authorized reseller) and sells them at discounted prices, although they do offer several newer models as well. They even had an iMac G5, a PowerBook G4 and several Power Mac G4 towers on display there as well.

Even though this MacBook is "old", it runs and looks almost as if it were new. There are no major defects in the case and no discoloration at all (which was pretty common in these models), and with the RAM maxed out at 2 GB, it runs OS X Snow Leopard quite satisfactorily. :yes: Depending on what I'm doing, I can easily get at least 2 and a half hours of battery life, which is nice.

Fresh install of XP on my Dell Dimension 3000 desktop PC. I've been meaning to reformat this for quite sometime (several years, infact) because the install had become quite cluttered and very bogged down. I've been unable to do that until today because neither of the optical drives (CD-RW or DVD) would work, so I couldn't reinstall from my restore CD. However, recently I opened up the case and replaced one of the drives with one I cannibalized from my old HP Pavilion PC, which works perfectly fine. :)

Hopefully soon I will be purchasing a new monitor for this machine; a 10x7 screen just doesn't cut it these days. :no:

This is my other desktop, which still has the Consumer Preview of Windows 8. I really don't use it much  for personal use (hence why IE is the only browser installed :P), but I do run an IRC server, a Twitter weather bot, a Wunderground weather radio stream for my area and any video streaming I do with it.

Also, because it powers the main wifi, I send it through my UPS (hence the battery icon on a desktop :bleh:). I have a CAT6 ethernet cable to bridge the connection over to my main desktop.

Finally, I thought the Windows 7 background looked better, so that's why I have that set as the background. :thumbsup:

Probably the last thing an actual pilot should ever do, but still...I found this awesome. Made by a Russian photoshop professional.

This is the desktop on my laptop. I don't have a fancy background because I'm much too lazy to change it...   :whistling2:


There were a lot of folders I had on my desktop, but I removed them from this snapshot (thanks to me having Photoshop) because none of you need to see my personal folders and the things I like to do for a living on my computer besides recording and editing TWC clips  :P

Hehe, I would know because it's a Lufthansa bird. They are the only 748i operator at the moment, and presently they fly the aircraft on their FRA - IAD route, so seeing it in a Russian setting is a little surprising (then again it was Photshopped :P )
