Here's another thread for sharing info about what computer/computers you use! Basically just list all the hardware your current setup has and how happy you are with it.

I currently have 1 laptop and 2 servers with hardware as follows:

Samsung NP QX411-W02UB

Processor: Intel Core i5-2450M 2.5GHz dual-core
Graphics: Intel HD3000M (I know, not a very good gfx card)
HDD: 1TB 5400rpm (I think)
RAM: 6GB DDR3
Ports: two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, HDMI, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet, Headphone, Microphone, SD Card

Current OS: 750GB for Windows 7 Home Premium, 250GB for Ubuntu 12.04, 250GB for Cross-OS files (Android Projects)

It's a moderate setup for sure but it works and its better than my old MacBook Pro! Overall I'm extremely pleased with this computer and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good general use computer.

PowerMac G4 (AGP Model)

Processor: Dual Motorola PowerPC G4 450MHz
Graphics: ATI Rage 128 Pro
HDD: 20GB
RAM: 512MB SDRAM
Ports: Too lazy to pull it out and look

Current OS: Ubuntu 10.04 Server

For being built in 1999 and still running strong I'd say this is a great computer. When it was introduced it was under export restriction by the US Dept of Defense since it was one of the most powerful consumer computers available at the time. If you can get a hold of one I'd recommend it as well.

Dell OptiPlex Workstation PC

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 (Not certain as to the specs)
Graphics: On board GFX
HDD: 40GB
RAM: 256MB SDRAM
Ports: Again too lazy to look.

Current OS: Arch Linux

This computer is a piece of crap to be honest but with Ubuntu Server it runs well for what it is (Minecraft, Plex, Network backup server). If you can get it for cheap then it does well.

Thats all I have at the moment. I am always looking for more to add to that list though :D

Nothing too special for me.

Intel Core i3-2100 clocked at stock speed of 3.1GHz
HIS Radeon 6750 with 1GB RAM
G. Skill 8GB DDR3-1333 RAM
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM SATA3 (6.0Gbps) 500 GB hard drive
Intel Z68 motherboard
LG Super DVD drive

All powered by an awesome COOLER MASTER 500w PSU tucked inside some cheap, but awesome case I bought sometime last year, and hooked up to a 22" VIZIO 1080p LED Television via HDMI of course. This thing flies. :)

So I have recently made a few changes to my setup(s), heres what I've been spending my time on :D

Samsung NP-QX411-W02UB:
Processor: Intel Core i5-2450M 2.5GHz dual-core (For some reason it says quad-core in my OS?)(Same as before)
RAM: 8GB DDR3 (Up from 6GB)
GFX: Intel HD 3000 (Same as before)

OS: Arch Linux (The Ultimate Linux OS for do-it-yourselfers)

How I feel about Arch: So far this has been the most exciting Linux setup experience I've ever had. The install process is a royal pain and I do not recommend it for the novice linux user. Once the installer is finished you are left with a barebones linux install, what that means is no desktop environment. Its all command line from the start. After about a week of tweaking it I finally have a somewhat usable system and the feeling I get from doing it myself is very rewarding. If you are interested in building your own distro from scratch I would definately recommend ArchLinux.

Just thought I'd share this with everyone since I feel it's definately something every linux nerd should try. If you decide to give it a whirl then PM me and let me know. I'd love to get an Android dev on arch group going so we can help the arch community as well.

EDIT:: I still have Windows 7 on a separate partition for Office and stuff, but I have ditched ubuntu as it doesn't "do it" for me anymore.

Love Arch. It's my distro of choice for a couple of reasons (here's two main ones): a rolling release so I don't have to reinstall the OS every year or so. Completely minimal install, you work from the ground up and only install what you need, which teaches you a lot.

So far it's been an awesome adventure. I really like pacman. Its probably my favorite feature so far. and I have learned a lot about linux by just using arch. Glad to see another arch fan here.

Arch sounds interesting... I like the idea of having nearly nothing to start with. Might have to look into it. :)
