How many PC's should i bring to college?
I know this sounds stupid but...

Currently i work off of 5(6) pc's. One is a laptop, so really only 5. Two old compaqs that i use as fileservers/test servers/audio servers, an old linux machine, my gaming rig, and just an old decent pentium 4 machine.

I'm unsure how many i should bring to a dorm. I know i am bringing a tower and a the laptop, but apart from that i'm not sure whats practical.

I even forget you can see sigs.

heh.

You are aware as to how small Dorm rooms are right? I think you will just need your Gaming and Laptop.

Most of the cases are the old small ones. I could fit all of them, but i would never leave the room. Tongue

You'll end up sleeping on top of the cases. Seriously. Dorms are only slightly larger than the closet in my bedroom.

My bathroom is slightly bigger than dorm rooms, and I have the smallest bathroom in the house.

You all make me laugh. This was my dorm in college:

(Notice the gamer + 2 servers + 2 IBM servers + projector and dual monitor setup, all in tiny dorm)

(Yes, that is a toaster in a basket, no, you may not ask why)

What do I win?
