    My dream desktop is a different matter, but of what's currently available, I'm typying on my "Dream Notebook" right now--17" MBP with 7200RPM drive and 2GB RAM.

    The only thing I'm missing is a SATA card for the expresscard slot, which I'm going to buy when money isn't so tight.

    Not that I wouldn't rather have a Merom, but it's not out yet, so I'm not speccing fantasy.

    23" iMac, matte black, Conroe or Merom, whichever will remain as quiet and unobtrusive as my current iMac, top-shelf graphics card, two FW800 slots, an eSATA slot, and a card reader for Compact Flash (only CF - SD/xd/etc. users can bite it).

    My dream Mac right now is really not too far off my iMac. I'd like quad-core or dual dual-core CPUs, an extra hard drive (for video scratch) and that's about the only thing I'd change. A 23" iMac would be cool I guess, but I'm perfectly happy with my 20" screen.

    iMac 23"
    Top of the line Conroe (not the Extreme though, the normal version)
    4 GB of ram
    750 GB HDD
    Firewire 800
    512 MB VRam
    More USB port

    My dream machine would be capable of love.

    Also, it should have at least 2GB of RAM.

    Mac Mini Maxi

    Think of it as a Mac Pro Mini! Or rather a mid budget Mac tower. The minis are nice and all but I do like to have a bit more options besides a pint sized computer and a girly AIO :p

    Would really appreciate an iMac that could knock up a decent cheese & ham toastie and a nice cup of tea.

    Or have I missed the point?

    A MacBook Pro with integrated 3G Broadband (EV-DO for the states, HSDPA for Europe) would have me swiping my credit card faster than you can say Steve Jobs.

    I guess all that could trump that would be a top-spec Woodcrest powered Mac Pro with noodles of RAM.
