Love my LTE 5000 machines! I have a 5100, 5250, and 5380. Just ordered a 64MB upgrade for the 5100, they are getting harder and harder to find. The 5380 has 80MB of memory, and the 5250 has 40MB. I bought the 5250 as a "parts" machine but it is practically flawelss!

I don't really have a gaming PC, I just make do with my regular old desktop and laptop. The desktop is mostly a standard HP pavilion P7-1155, but with a GeForce GT 640 and a 500 gigabyte SSD. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 2200 with a 40 gigabyte hard drive. Would have liked to use an SSD but I couldn't find any IDE SSDs. They're fine because on my desktop I usually play games that are at least 10 years old or more, and on the laptop 20 years or more.

I don't even know where to start these days, and I'm not 100% sure what's in a couple of my PC's....

I've got
  • 7th Generation i7 desktop with a GeForce 2080 Super, 32GB of RAM, and 5TB of SSD
  • 4th Generation i7 with a GeForce 1080 and 1TB SSD in the living room.
  • Second Gen Skull Canyon NUC with two 512GB SSDs and 32GB RAM. The GPU is an AMD Athlon of some sort, but I don't do much modern gaming on it. That computer mostly runs emulators, Discord, or video capture software. (I use it as a support computer for streaming and when my main computer is tied up.)
  • Dell laptop with a 1060. I don't use it much
  • various NUC machines - one is my file server for downloads and shared storage.
I've also got a bunch of vintage and retro Commodore hardware, a MiSTer (soon to be two), a ZX Spectrum 128, and a NEC Trek.
Finally.... four different Altair 8800 clones: Mike Douglas's full size Altair Clone, two Altairduinos, and a mini-Altairduino that fits in the palm of your hand.

I mounted a PC motherboard in the Altair Clone, so I call it the "Altair PC." I use one of the Altairduino systems to show off the platform to people, and the other one is my test bench for firmware mods or CP/M programs.
