Icarus was my first computer. I got it when I graduated in summer 2003. It’s an Acer Travelmate 433LM.
CPU : Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 GHz)
RAM : 2Ã—256 MB â€“ PC2100 (266 MHz)
GC : ATI Mobility Radeon 7500Â (64 MB DDR)
HDD : 40 GB IDE
Screen : 15″ (1400 x 1050)

Date : 9th July 2003
I used Icarus as my main computer from 2003 to 2006. When I bought it, it was one of the best laptop available and it is really good quality. The last AMV I made with it is Vectorman, after that I kept using it as a server. I opened it twice to clean the fans that were getting dusty : first time IÂ accidentalÂ destroyed the batteryÂ controller, the second time, the keyboardÂ controllerÂ died. I have no idea how it happened but since it was working 24/7, I really had to clean the fans that were blowing atÂ full-speedÂ even when the processor was idle and cold. Today, Icarus still works but since I don’t need it anymore, it stays in the closet.
