I have a Dell Inspiron 2650 as my testbed
Specs:
1.8 GHz Pentium 4
256 MB RAM
18 GB HDD

I'll just be flashing down a provided image to its HDD, so pre-beta filesystem/disk drivers are accepted

Guess it's time for me to post some info on my test beds.

I have a diverse assortment of HDD's who's storage capacity vary from 126MB to 3TB.
I have various bars of SIMM's. (30 and 72, Fast page, static column, EDO, you name it)
I have some exotic hardware some of which pertain a first attempt at 500MB storage, 4 CD jukebox in a 5.25 build format with DOS DRIVERS!

I have a AMD386 with a Cyrix FastMath coprocessor when testing 386 compatibility that is the system i use.
I have a TULIP desktop with a 486DX I use it for EISA ISA and PCI testing bed. (hardware testing)

A Unbranded 686 as a slot 1 CPU 256MB RAM, 4GB HDD main running Gentoo, secondary 120GB HDD.(Used for it's parallel port as a hub to the older systems)
AGP video slot many used with a Hercules card.

Compaq Slot7 system it currently has a pentium I CPU
Fujitsu Siemens Intel Pentium III CPU, 768MB RAM, AGP video slot.

Antiquated machines i can run software on.
Amiga 500
Amiga 500+
Atari 800XL
Nintendo Entertainment System, (security chip bypassed)
Super Nintendo Entertainment System, (security chip bypassed)

Current hobby project
1.Adding a HDD to the Amiga 500+ and a 68030 and a 68882 and sufficient RAM, bonus Goals USB, Ethernet Base100, Floppy disk header location counter track/sector.

- current state, writing software to replace Gary and add the features mentioned above.

2.Z80 Telnet terminal, build into a CRT screen.

I have one that is (kinda) working, my very FIRST computer, anybody can use just message me.

Pentium 166 with MMX technology
80MB of RAM
2.16GB hard drive (write allowed, will take a backup image to my main dev box)
ATI 264xx 3D Rage IIC (PCI)
Sound card (AZTECH logo on the main chip) (ISA)

Note that there are two cards in there that are usable, not yet sure entirely what they are, but I will check and repost.

There IS a NIC, but it is also an ISA modem, and I don't have the right cables/etc. to interface it (plus my folks aren't too overly chuffed about tying up the phone line)...

EDIT: The 'kinda' part: CMOS battery is dead. Computer still boots Win95, so should be fine. Just the timer.

That would actually be a mach64-based graphics card, or specifically, an ATI 264xx 3D Rage IIC (do you want code to do hardware acceleration?)

I certainly did not know that! I'm impressed. Thanks for helping me identify it :D

I'm mostly interested in networking for now.

I have a lot of PCI/PCI-X/PCI express ethernet cards:
RTL8029, RTL8139, RTL8169, 3com 900b, 905, 920, .. (all boomerang types), Myson MTD803, intel 8255x and 8254x, sis900, nforce, VIA rhine, PCnet32, R6040, DEC21x4x, marvell yukon, broadcom bcm57xx.

Can be tested on a 64 bit machine if wanted, gigabit, trunking and all you want available.

I have different versions of most cards, and some double that can be traded with cards not on the list, if anyone is interested.

The newest member of the boob family of PC's:

Mobo: ASRock Z87 Extreme6
PSU: Corsair AX760i
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K
RAM: G.SKILL TridentX F3-1600C7D-16GTX
SDD: OCZ Vector 128GB
ODD: LG BH16NS40

If you're wondering why it has so little storage and no dedicated video card, it's because it's a special-purpose system. Either way, it's also a test bed.

I have an Atari 1040ST somewhere in my attic.. if anyone wants to test on it I can go find it and pull it out.

I also have some Macs (G3 + G4) and an assortment of x86 compatible devices.
