Yan's Computers

Computers are great stuff to use and work with, and the technology is incredible in this era. Since computers are one of my favourite hobbies, I have several such machines, with sizes from human palms to desktops. This page serves as a reference for me to quote my computer specifications when I want to discuss about them to other people. Take a look, and drool (or vomit)!
