As the topic of this thread states, what kind of computer do you have? What are the specs of your computer? I'm sure this has been posted before but I know that people get new computers all the time.

I'll start off.

Homemade, Pentium 4 2.4 GHz, 1024MB of Ram, 80 Gig HD, cd burner, dvd rom, XFX GeForce 4 128MB graphics card. Thats about it.

So whats under your computers hood?

I have a self-built, dual processor workstation, which I use for my coding is Visual Studio and my other work projects. Specs: Intel Pentium III Coppermine 1.0B GHz, 1GB ECC SDRAM, two 60GB Seagate Ultra SCSI disks in RAID-1, Plextor SCSI burner, Toshiba IDE DVD ROM, ATI Radeon 8500 128MB. (Yes, I'm paranoid.) My keyboard is of special note: it is an IBM 52G9658, also known as the IBM "M" type keyboard.

I used to have Apple Macintosh. My last - and still active - Mac is a 1996 bought Powermac 4400. I works without any problems. I NEVER had to reinstall anything in the last 7 years.

In 2000, I bought my first no name Notebook with Win98. It gave up life a year later. Now I'm also "proud" owner of a Acer Travelmate 521TEV (600Mhz PIII, 128MB RAM, 6GB HD) with the biggest crap ever invented: Windows!! About one third of my work with this crap is to find solution for different problems.

The next one will be either an iBook or Powerbook.

Dell Inspiron 8200, which I got in July 2002 for ~$2700.

All engineers have to have laptops at MSU.

1.6 Ghz P-4M (lowest spec processor then)
UXGA screen (called Dell Ultrasharp, it's a beaut at 1600x1200)
30 GB hard drive
384 MB RAM (got it stock with 128 MB, added 256 from crucial.com)
nVidia GeForce440Go 64 MB
24x CD-R / DVD combo drive
Windows XP Home
Office XP Professional

Added a second battery and a wireless network card later, and they're pretty darn convenient. I also like my MS optical mouse (even though it doesn't work as well as our old [1996] Mouse Systems optical mice back home).

However, I'm EXTREMELY P'OED at Microsoft for its refusal to allow Javascript to work normally with WinXP. It is such a pain...
