    What computer are you using? Specs?

    I thought I would start a thread where everyone shares pictures and specs of their computers. I haven't found any other like this, so please correct me if I'm wrong. I'll start.

    My Computer (Custom Built):

    Internals:
    4.7GHz Intel Core i5 - 2500k (have gotten it up to 5.0GHz, but normal overclocking is around 4.5GHz, I don't overclock all the time though; only when I have some heavy duty stuff to do)
    8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-SDRAM @ 1600mhz (removed heatsinks since they do nothing for ram and get in the way of my CPU cooler)
    ATI Radeon HD 5770 - overclocked @950mhz, has 1GB GDDR5 RAM
    Corsair TX750W Power Supply
    MSI Z77A-G45 Motherboard

    Storage:
    OCZ Vertex 4 SSD 128GB (Operating System, small programs)
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB (Large programs/Videos/Music)
    Hitachi Deskstar 160GB (Backup)
    ASUS DVD-RW Drive

    Case, Cooling, and Peripherals:
    Case: Corsair Carbide series 500R
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (Lapped and processor is also lapped)
    GPU Cooler: Arctic Cooling Accelero Mono with custom fan bracket bolted on and 120mm CPU fan bolted on
    Fans: 4x Stock Case fans (3x 120mm 1x 200mm side fan), 2x Cougar Vortex 120mm PWM fans.
    Monitor: LG Flatron E2350 23.5" 1080P Full HD LED-LCD Monitor
    Speakers: 4.5 foot tall Pioneer CS-M758's with 12" subs
    Keyboard: HP Wireless Elite
    Mouse: Some random Logitech wireless mouse...
    I also have a steering wheel setup for some racing games I play sometimes

    If you're wondering why I'd post all of this, computers are another hobby of mine. I'm on tom's hardware, overclock.net, and betaarchive.

    So, what computer or specs do you have?

    I have 4 regular machines. Nothing special, but as a lazy sysadmin, they all get the job done.

    Work Desktop:
    2012 Mac Mini Server
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2635QM CPU @ 2.00GHz (linux reports as 8 cores, so probably dual quad-cores)
    2x500GB drives (not in a RAID)
    4GB RAM
    dual ancient 20" ViewSonic VP201mb flat-panels (1xDVI over Thunderbolt, 1xDVI via HDMI)
    dell keyboard & Logitech trackball
    Arch Linux (Linux 3.6.6) and Mac OS 10.7 dual-boot with rEFIt. I've been too lazy to BootCamp it and triple-boot Win7, but I could...

    Work Laptop:
    Dell Latitude E6400
    Intel Core2 Duo P8600 @2.4GHz (2 cores)
    80GB drive
    2GB RAM
    Arch Linux (Linux 3.6.6)

    I also have an old Dell XPS M1210 lappy with Win7 sitting on my desk. Not sure what to do with it yet.
    Then there's the machines in the server room, but I think that would be O/T here.

    Home Desktop:
    ancient Dell Optiplex GX620
    Pentium 4 3.2GHz with HT (so linux reports as dual-core), SpeedStep is off
    80GB drive
    1GB RAM
    ancient 17" Hyundai LCD
    Sun Type 6 USB keyboard and Logitech trackball (I worked at Sun for 5 years, so the keyboard has some sentimental value)
    Linux Mint Debian Edition (Linux 3.2.0)

    Home Laptop (which is really a netbook):
    Asus Aspire One AO722
    AMD Fusion C50 dual-core 1GHz
    500GB drive
    4GB RAM
    11.6" widescreen
    Linux Mint Debian Edition (Linux 3.2.0)

    There's also my wife's MacBook Pro, but it is as it came. Nothing fun on that machine.

    I like your setups, they all seem like they're great for their purposes. And I'm almost positive the mac mini only has one processor; i7's can't run in dual configurations, only Xeons can. It's most likely that linux is detecting the 8 threads, not the 4 cores. i7's have hyperthreading.

    I'm soon going to become the proud owner of a 2001 PIII Dell laptop

    I thought it was a one-socket, but I couldn't remember if it was HT or not... see, I was too lazy to look it up.

    The dual 20"'s are great for plastering a web browser on one and covering the other with terminal windows (or RDP sessions, depending on what is going on). And my bittorrent client of course. Must keep the Linux CDs flowing to the masses.

    All four machines are running 64-bit Linux distros, which finally realizes the dream I had back in 1998 when I started as a student sysadmin in the Sun lab of my next desktop being 64-bit like the Suns were.

    I have all the parts to watercool with 2X180mm radiators and fans, but until I have the time for some serious fabrication/modding, it's running on stock air cooling.

    work desktop, spec'd by me, built by my supplier:
    Intel E8500 dual core cpu overclocked to 3.8GHz
    Gigabyte motherboard
    4GB ram
    Antec 300 case
    WD velociraptor 300GB boot drive
    WD Black 1TB storage drive
    ATI FireGL video card
    Windows XP
    dual 22" displays

    home desktop, built by me:
    Intel Q9400 quad core cpu overclocked to 3.4GHz
    Gigabyte motherboard
    4GB ram
    Antec 300 case
    WD black 750GB boot drive
    Windows 7
    17" display

    home laptop:
    Dell Latitude E6400 15"
    Intel P9500 dual core processor
    Windows Vista
    Samsung 128GB SSD

    travel laptop
    Toshiba T135 13" laptop
    Intel dual core processor
    Windows 7
    64GB SSD

    internet/reading device:
    ipad 2

    stupid computer for testing:
    mac mini

    old,old desktop:
    I pulled an old desktop out of the clsoet. I'm not sure the exact processor but it is about 500MHz. It didn't have a hard drive so I pulled an old one out of the deks drawer and put in it. I turned it on and it booted to DOS 6.1. That hard drive had the game Descent on it and it runs great.

    my wife has an old Dell desktop that she used to use in her business but doesn't use anymore. She has a Toshiba laptop similar to mine but hers is 12" non-widescreen, barely bigger than an ipad.

    XFX N Force 680i LT board.
    Intel 3Ghz core2 something or other? Must need an upgrade!
    8 gig Corsair XMS2 memory.
    Super Flower Aurora 650w PSU.
    Windows 7 Ultimate.
    XFX GeForce 9600GT.
    Corsair H80 liquid cooling.

    My 4 year old desktop is ancient compared to what many are using... but it does everything it needs to do with power to spare.

    Asus P5Q mobo with Intel 8700 series 2.33 quad core, 8 gigs of ram, 512 video, 1 tb internal storage and a 1tb external backup...

    The Wayback machine gets used for basic tasks like e-mail and internet and is an old P3 with 1G ram, 512 video, and a 100g hard drive.

    ...

    I remember when I got a 100 meg external hard drive for my Mac Plus and when that was the shizzle.

    Heh, a year ago I would have my answer to this question memorized.

    Now that I have other priorities, I couldn't tell you a darn thing. i5? i7? I dunno. I just know it has 16GB of RAM because we convinced our buyer at work to get that much. Storage? Not enough for our department.

    My computer at home? i5 laptop. 17.3" screen, 4GB RAM. I don't even know what gen i5 it is.

    And I don't care.

    It is black, sort of rectangular, has a silver button that says DELL on it and a badge that says OPTIPLEX 360

    for my audio production work I have a circa 2004 Mac G4 dual-1GHz MDD with 1.5GB RAM, two 80GB & one 200GB internal drives plus a 1TB & a 40GB external drive, running in dual-boot mode (OSX 10.3.9 and OS9.2.2).

    for my word processing, email, 'net surfing and general office tasks I have a circa 2009 Dell laptop running Windows Vista Home Edition...no idea what any of the specs on that machine are, I'm a complete PC idiot.
