Pure curiosity, but does anyone know?

I'm not sure there is any information on Dylan's computer. I think  I remember hearing he got a new one in Christmas 98' but I could be wrong.

I thought he build his own.

I wish I could remember where I read that, but it's a shame that he had to go and delete all his computer files.  Crying or Very sad

Agree! I don't know what I would want to see more...The Basement Tapes or Dylan's fixed harddrive...or actually what's on the harddrive ;)

I wonder if the LE attempted to recover the files on his harddrive? It would have been perfectly possible if they took the initiative. I'm sure Dylan didn't go through the trouble of formatting it seven or eight times.

It's likely they extracted some data and never released it. Dylan didn't smash his hdrive like Adam Lanza did and the authorities are still attempting to recover data off Lanza's drive.  FDisking a couple of times will not wipe everything.

Their general computer equipment can be found here. Dylan appeared to have three computers, two PCs (one he built) and an apple and a Umax scanner.  I believe Eric's one PC was the shared family computer?

Evidence Logs:
Item 213 - CPU Gateway 2000/ MOD GP6 - 300 pg(11552) - Harris
Item 216 - Computer Monitor NEC pg(11552) - Harris
Item 218 - Printer/ HP 682C pg(11552) -Harris

Item 418 - CPU Acer pg(11562) - Klebold
Item 426 - Umax Astra 1220u scanner pg(11563)  - Klebold
Item 427 - Mini Tower CPU pg(11563) - Klebold
Item 430 - NEC Multi sync 3FGX Monitor pg(11563) - Klebold

CBI Evidence Exhibit item  / Jefferson County Item number pg(12038,12044 +12039)

#1 Apple CPU - Klebold - was found to be a LINUX format drive. A copy was made and sent to the FBI National Laboratory. The FBI provided several files from their analysis, but no information related to guns, the shooting, or the making of bombs were recovered.
#2 Acer CPU - Klebold - was found to have no disks drives.
#3 Minitower CPU - Klebold - was found to have one completely blank drive from which all files had been deleted and overwritten./ The second drive in exhibit 3 was found to contain various 3-D games.
#4 Gateway CPU / MOD GP6-300 - Harris - was found to contain a copy of the Anarchist's Cookbook, and various school assignments from Eric Harris. Several of these appear to be creative writing assignments and deal with violence and dream sequences similar to the shooting.

In the property release section posted within this thread it shows the item 'Gateway CPU Computer' was released to Wayne Harris pg(11785)
Released to Tom Klebold was: Computer part, (Acer) CPU, Apple CPU, Umax Scanner, Mini Tower CPU, Keyboard and Mouse, NEC Monitor pg(11792 + 4)

You can make out a computer here been taken from the Harris residence on 4/20.

In Eric's 'Rebldomakr' profile under 'Computers' it says "pentium75, 8megs of RAM, soon will be better....."
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

On his 'REB DoMiNe' AOL profile under 'Computers' Eric wrote "cow."

Perhaps this second one was the Gateway Computer.

Nice photo album, but the stupid "Best Buy" commercial made it nearly impossible for me to look at them. Every time I close it and click on the next picture, the stupid thing pops right back up!

Yeah it's probably a reference to the Gateway logo which was a box with a black and white cow pattern on it.

And also that it was probably old and slow. Gateway computers are kind of entry level, even in the late 90s.
Dylan on the other hand seemed to have higher end machines. Even an apple.

So if the computers were eventually returned to the Harris' and Klebold's I would reckon they're probably in a trash dump somewhere by now.

I'm guessing this is what Eric's setup would have been.
