It's a personal media server as well. I can stream stuff to my PS3.

You're lucky to have all those computers to play with! I used to have my own computer lab with two rack servers and around 10 desktops but I had to sell them all after my last car accident.

Old laptop (haven't sold it yet): Toshiba A85-S1072
RAM: 1 GB
CPU: 1.4 GHz
HDD: 40 GB
OS: Crunchbang, Arch
WM: Openbox
Manufactured in 2003, was given to my friend by his mom after she upgraded. My friend has a kick-ass desktop and didn't need a laptop at the time, and I was in need of one, so he threw it my way for free. I started out with Crunchbang on it, and a few months ago, I foolishly decided to try Arch. Things constantly broke, and I just reverted back to Crunchbang.

New laptop (bought it on ebay for 99 bucks a few weeks ago): Apple PowerBook G4 15"
1.5 GB RAM
1.5 GHz PowerPC processor
OS: Debian PPC
WM: Openbox at first, AwesomeWM for ten minutes, i3 ever since

Desktop (One of my IT clients just replaced a lot of their desktops, and they let me have one of their old ones, free of charge. It's by an off-brand I've never heard of, Howard Computers, and there's no model number indicated on the case)
CPU: Intel 2.4 GHz
2 GB RAM
OS: Debian
WM: i3

Think that's minimal? Just a year ago, I only had one laptop with 256 Megs of RAM and I used it on a daily basis. I feel so fortunate now, haha.

A few years ago all I had was a Samsung Blackjack II WM6.2 phone.
I made my fist websites using that phone, then played with php, css, etc. But the one thing I wanted to do but couldn't was to login to some remote host on the net. I had zero unix experience and little knowledge outside of Windows/DOS/NetWare.
I finally got some .IMG file and a VNC app and was able to connect to the .IMG file via VNC.

When I got this netbook is when I dove right in to *nix with UNR, but Ubuntu Netbook Remix was really sucky.
It had a dumbed-down interface that would have worked better on a touch screen, and the regular DE was GNOME. GNOME sucks on this netbook.

And I just realized that I'm rambling...

LMAO!

I would be bummed out to have only 256 MB RAM...
I have an old Compaq that had 128 MB RAM that ran WinXP but I didn't have a good HSDPA signal so tethering didn't work until the cellcos upgraded their systems.
I was in the dark for y-e-a-r-s.
