Personally I have to make do with a Sempron 1400+ on a pretty cheapo computer - am I the only one with this problem?...

    Good'n here... I always build my own and this one is only a few months old.

    You're probably one of the more numerous demographics, since most people either can't or don't spend the money necessary to create a "pretty nice" rig. I consider myself to be of the relatively privileged group since I'm single and make enough to indulge me every electronic whim.

    Not the newest, but still fairly nice. AMD64 3000+, 1g PC3200, 80gigSATA drive, 40gig IDEdrive, ATI x800pro for graphics. (sure, it blows on Linux, but kicks ass in Windows.)

    My Xp 3200+ does fine, but I'm already looking for an upgrade (AMD 64 ) - but this cpu & mobo is only 1 yr old (or maybe two...) Anyway, my latest update goes back to a few months ago.

    I run SuSE 9.1 on a 400 MHz AMD K6-2 with 256 MB RAM. Yet I still voted for "Not too bad."

    If I run with KDE it's ok; a little sluggish perhaps. If I run it with XFCE it's very quick.

    I think that this poll is essentially good, but some of the choices, eg "old and crap" should be changed.

    2.26GHz i686
    512MB RAM
    ATI Radeon 9100 - I had to switch video cards with my mom or else her computer doesn't do anything, but Radeon 9100 is fine for me.

    Not too bad; it runs FC4 and KDE 3.4 just fine.

    Not too bad for me. My linux box is a 1.8 GHz celeron CPU with 384 megs of RAM. My Windows comp is a bit more gangst because it's for gaming. P4, gig of RAM... blah blah blah.

    I'd say mine is not too bad.

    I have a AMD Athlon XP 2800+, ABIT NF7-S MOBO, 512 MB DDR400, ATI Radeon 9200 128 MB, 24 GB HD and 40 GB HD, on-board sound.

    I want to upgrade, but with all my other expenses I can't right now. This does the job though so I'm in no hurry.
