Network Client (the one I use primarily)
  • P4m 2.8 GHz (with Hyperthreading)
  • 512 MB RAM (going to 1 GB soon)
  • 40 GB Internal HDD
  • Internal CD-RW/DVD+RW Drive
  • External FDD
  • 16.1" UXGA Monitor
  • Nvidia GeForce FX Go5600 (64MB)
  • Sigma Integrated Audio Adapter (disabled)
  • Echo Indigo PCMCIA Audio Adapter (switched between PCs, as desired)
  • Integrated 802.11g Wireless LAN Adapter
  • Integrated 56K Data/Fax Modem
  • A/V Out
  • 3 x USB 2.0 Ports
  • 1 x IEEE 1394 (Firewire) Port
  • 2 Type I/II PCMCIA Slots
  • 1 x Memory Stick Slot (MS Pro compatible)
  • Synaptics Touchpad
  • Microsoft Wireless Optical Intellipoint Explorer 2.0 (Hardly a critical system component, but I love this mouse. Had to mention it. )
  • Windows XP Professional (2002), SP2
Network Server
  • P4m 2.0 GHz
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 40 GB Internal HDD
  • Internal CD-RW/DVD-RW Drive
  • External FDD
  • 16.1" UXGA Monitor
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (32 MB)
  • Yamaha AC/XG Integrated Audio Adapter (disabled)
  • Integrated Ethernet 10/100 Adapter
  • Integrated 56K Data/Fax Modem
  • A/V Out
  • 3 x USB 1.0 Ports
  • 1 x IEEE 1394 (Firewire) Port
  • 2 Type I/II PCMCIA Slots
  • 1 x Memory Stick Slot (MS Pro compatible)
  • Synaptics Touchpad
  • 250 GB 7200RPM External Western Digital HDD (USB2.0 and Firewire compatible)
  • Windows XP Professional (2002), SP2
Handheld Network Device
  • Sony CLIE NX-80V
  • 200 MHz ARM CPU (overclockable)
  • 32 MB RAM
  • 512 MB Memory Stick Pro
  • 320x480 Color Touchscreen (65K colors)
  • Sony PEGA-WL110 802.11b Wireless LAN Card (works in all my other handheld PCs too)
  • Palm 5 OS
Network Router / Wireless Access Point / Internet Connectivity
  • Sony AR300 802.11a/b/g Wireless Access Point
  • Sony R1 Configurable NAT Router
  • Cable Modem (with 2.0Mbps connectivity, connected via Ethernet directly to the NAT router)
And the best part is that all of these devices are portable. The PC's are notebooks (Sony PCG-GRT390Z and Sony PCG-GRX670, respectively). And since the notebooks and handheld have their own batteries, it's like having integrated UPS devices. Each node device is fully immune from power outages.

My entire network and all devices will fit into my briefcase.

Also, my car has it's own computer system for music and video: ARM 74MHz CPU, 32 MB RAM, 60 GB removable HDD cartridge, runs Linux and can decode 6 audio formats. This system will soon be upgraded to a faster, higher capacity, 802.11g-enabled platform. At that point, my car will be yet another network node.

Storage-wise, at the moment I've got 390 GB of hard drive capacity in all. And between all drives, about 50 GB is free.

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.
