>How much does the average sushi roll's computer cost?
Im a collector of extra hardware and worked with a POS system company so I was able to grab some old stuff to play with, I built my desktop for $250 with an A6 barebones form TD when they still sold them. I threw in a few spare TB drives that I had from before I moved and 128 SSD.
>How many of you own fancy GPUs/processors, and how many of you prefer simpler/cheaper hardware?
When FO4 came out I got a R7 360 and it was ok for that but is more than I need for anything else. So I would say a total of $500 including the 21:9. It does everything I need and them some. I really only play Civ and KSP but it works on max for both of those and on the rare whim that I play The Long Dark, I just need to turn the textures down due to the screen resolution. Most of my work is with Ruby on Rails now so I spend a lot of time in a text editor and hardly touch the GPU

At one point this year I had 6 machines running. I have my desktop, I got a HP Dv4 while working at staples that some one was recycling for $5. Threw a 64GB SSD in it and have wanted nothing more as far as a laptop goes, I have had to replace the fan and extended battery but that cost me all of $12 to replace.
I have an Aspire One that I travel with when I dont think ill need a pc and have a 32GB SSD in it. Its slow but once the OS loads its not bad. battery only last about 2 hours through :(.
I had a Dell Powerserver(x2 pentium 4 setup) I got from work for free and played with it for a while but the power consumption was awful. I gave it away to a friend who broke his laptop.
I have an Rpi2 I was using as a webserver and Im now using it to build my own POS system with daisy chained 2200mA batteries so it stays on for 6+ hours on $10 worth of batteries.
I also Have a few old phones that I tried to play with the boot loaders and turn into a laptop to have in my car for fun an profit.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
