Infrastructure

I use a number of different devices during the week for either work or personal purposes. I figured I would do a quick write-up of what I am using in case anyone was interested. This page has been recently updated (1/24/2018) to include information about my new primary laptop. Chances are, if I am playing a game or out of the house, I am using the Megumin laptop.

Megumin

Megumin is the name of my primary laptop. Named after the iconic character from the “Konosuba” series, it is an Acer Predator Helios 300 that I acquired due to a bonus in some of the work I do. Only part of the laptop not currently original is the second hard drive that I threw into the open slot as the primary drive is a M.2 SSD.

CPU: Intel Core i7-7700HQ
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
Memory: 16GB DDR4 RAM
HDD1: 256GB Micron M.2 SSD
HDD2: 500GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO
OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

Gigadelic

Gigadelic is the name of my primary Desktop. This computer came into existence in January of 2012 and has had a few upgrades here and there, most notably in the GPU department, but with a new network card and PSU as both the built-in ethernet port and the old PSU were damaged during my stay in Florida. This is a custom build which will probably be replaced at the beginning of 2019 as a natural progression.

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770k
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX
GPU: nVidia GeForce GTX 980 4GB
RAM: 16 GB DDR3-1600
HDD1: 2TB Seagate HDD
HDD2: 512GB Samsung SSD
HDD3: 512GB Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid HDD
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 / Linux Mint (Cinnamon)

Nekomata

Nekomata is a Dell Latitude E6430 I picked up on sale as a refurbished unit. It gets pushed to the wayside right now since I don’t have a direct need for it, but it works great as a backup laptop to lend someone when they come over. It won’t run games all too well, but it works great for general web browsing or anything productive. As long as its not graphically intense, this laptop is a pleasure to use.

Brand: Dell
Model: Latitude E6430
CPU: Intel Core i5-3360M
RAM: 8 GB DDR3-1600
HDD: 256GB Samsung SSD
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10

I recently removed the HP-branded laptop from the list as I found someone interested in taking it off my hands.
