    I voted nice

    my desktop:

    Pentium 4 3.2GHz (Soon to be swapped out for an AMD Athlon 64 3000+)
    1Gb RAM
    80gb Hard Drive
    (Just sold my graphics card, looking for a new one)

    and my laptop:

    Pentium M 1.7GHz
    512mb RAM
    80gb Hard Drive
    ATI Radeon 9000 Mobile

    Both run great, though my desktop is about to get upgraded. I'm looking for a solid nVidia card, and plan to make the jump from Intel >> AMD. I'm starting with a lower-end 64bit processor with a plan to upgrade it to a dual core down the road

    ive got a Satellite 2450-401 laptop

    2.8 GHz, 512 MB, 40 GB, NVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go 32 MB, DVD player, CDR, networking and a wifi PCMCIA to make it complete.

    i nkow that there is best machines, this ones getting older, although i voted pretty nice because it is all i need.

    i think people usually try harder to get the ultimate machines and mostly of them dont always take advantage of it. and i use this ones all day long, harder.. just a thougth

    At home I have a P III 800MHz, 128 MB RAM, 10GB hard disk, NVIDIA GeForce2 MX video card. I assembled it myself a couple of years before the big economic crash down here. Still works pretty fine, which is a relief (still haven't recovered enough to buy a new one).

    Don't really use it for what it was oringinally made for anymore. Can't find the time to play all the wonderful games...Sucks when work eats up all your free time.

    Mine still runs fine. I'm not into the heavy DE's, I use Enlightenment 16.8 from CVS and fbpanel, and Arch is very speedy. Still though, I'm getting the itch, I'm just about to the point of building a Turion or Pentium M based desktop rig with a nice 15k SCSI / drive and a big SATA RAID 5 storage array.

    But right now I'm still running a:

    Asus P3V4X
    P3 600E at 800EB
    1GB PC133
    GeForce 3
    Hercules GTXP
    40GB WD 7200RPM
    Plextor 52x24x52

    I think the gig of RAM is what's really keeping this thing so smooth even now, my next build will have 2GB I think, for longevity as a file server/firewall/jabber server/email server

    That's still a decent machine. Almost the same spec as my laptop and Linux runs fine. I used to be gung-ho about keeping up with the lastest hardware but after spending over $2000 in 2 years for a machine that is now worth about $300 i eventually realised it's a losing game. I'm happy with what i have.

    my pc's ok, i voted for the not too bad.. i built it a few months ago, and i figure i'll keep it for another year or so before i upgrade. specs are in my sig.

    my laptop on the other hand, i'll subject to the old and crap category... my dad got it in 1998, gave it to my a few months ago since he didn't need it anymore (neither do i, but i won't refuse a free laptop). i formatted it and it now runs dsl 1.2 solely with no windows to bother it or slow it down. specs are also in my sig.

    hey that laptop's still good. i've got an old PII 400mhz 128mb ram that runs FreeBSD 4.x with Enlightenment DM perfectly. Great for experimenting with distro's on.
