Originally ridley was the kids' computer, but when we got the digital TV I hooked it up and transfered the kids' documents, email, bookmarks, etc. to iorek. This computer has a fast graphics card and a bunch of game controllers (including a racing wheel with separate gas and brake pedals) for playing games, a webcam for Skype, and runs GB-PVR for watching movies and listening to music.
