Aney's Hardware



My everyday tech

This is what I use basically every day. It's either at my desk, in my bag, or within arms reach.

Laptop - Thinkpad x220

My everyday driver is a Thinkpad x220, specced with an i5 2540m, 6GB RAM, and a 500GB EVO 860 mSata SSD. It typically runs Debian with dwm, but since I've been having problems with my arm, it's been running Pop!_OS like a champ.

I use this laptop for practically everything, and it performs well for my use-cases whether docked at my desk, or standalone for travels.

X220 Docking Station

When I'm at home, I typically stay docked to this station as it has all my ports pre-plugged, and an additional 500GB HDD (which I don't use). This makes it easy to switch between working at the desk, and lounging on the seatee/bed.

Gaming PC

Red, a custom built machine sporting an R5 2600X, 16GB RAM, a 500GB EVO 970 NVME, and a Vega 64. This is my only device running Windows.

I don't use this anywhere near as much as I used to, but when I want to play a game I've got this PC that I know will perform, regardless of the title.

I am heavily considering selling it when the Steamdeck releases, however.

Media Consumption

TV

A basic non-smart TV from years back. I got it for my 16th Birthday, 10 years ago.

Fire TV Stick 4K

Since my TV is useless alone, and I don't watch traditional television, this is plugged in to give me access to Netflix, Amazon Video, Crunchyroll, and Jellyfin.

Amazon Echo 3

I don't use this for anything other than playing music. It stays next to the TV waiting for me to say "Alexa, play We like to party, by the Vengaboys."

Servers

lilman

An HP 290 G1 MT, with an i5-7500, and 8GB RAM. This is my primary server, although I've still yet to get around to migrating services from rpi3.

rpi3

A Raspberry Pi 3B+ that's running my webserver, and gitserver, alongside a few docker containers. It's a pretty swell device, and I may very well start a cluster with it when I get the chance.

Unused/Spares

I go through hoarding phases unfortunately, so besides what I've listed, I also have; 5 other PCs of various specs, a 1U server, 4 more laptops (3 of which are Thinkpads), and a RPI 3B. Out of these, I intend to keep two PCs, the 3 thinkpads, and the RPI3.
