We all love our Macs, that's a given. So here is a thread to go ahead and show what else you have or use.

What else do you guys have?

I'll start with my 2 Pcs, the first of which is really the more interesting one.





My Alienware Area-51 M7700 (D9T)
3.4ghz Desktop Pentium 4 CPU with hyper-threading, 3gb ram, 500gb Scorpio black sata hdd (i was amazed i could use a sata hdd connector for a newer alienware for this and its raid connector inside) Ati Radeon X800 Pro GPU. This laptop cost around $5000 back in 2005 when it was new! Back when Alienware was not owned by dell, a real Alienware.
Also out of any laptop, this thing has THE BEST internal speakers ive ever heard. Has a 4.1 speaker system in it with a subwoofer that actually makes an audible difference!
It weighs nearly 20 pounds too!

This is a laptop I took a gamble on and bought "non-working" because the seller didnt have a power cord or any hard drives with it.
I ordered a power cord and a sata hdd cable, stuck in a sata hdd I had laying around it actually worked great!

I primarily use this for windows 95/98/XP games. Its wonderful for all the older games.

My other PC is my little Dell Optiplex 760 I use for my HTPC:

Small, cheap ($50 on ebay if you hunt right) and has a 2.93ghz Core 2 Duo CPU in it.
I also have a front-end setup on it with a bunch of rom libraries on it for NES,SNES, Sega genesis, and many other full library collections of roms.

It's changed since. I now have an Apple Wireless keyboard and am using an old Vizio 22-inch RAZR LED LCD 1080p television set. Too lazy to take new pics; maybe later?

My current specifications aren't magnificent by any means. It is a custom-built machine that has the following:

AMD Athlon II X3 445 Processor - 3.10 GHz
ASRock M3A770DE AM3 Motherboard
Kingston HyperX DDR3 1333 4Gb RAM
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500Gb
Galaxy GTX 460 768Mb Nvidia Graphics Card
Rosewill Green 630W Power Supply Unit

@ranviper,

Sweet setup!

@macalla,

What one is that? Sweet stuff!

Here's mine. Nothing spectacular but it gets the job done. Really looking into getting a Surface Pro 3 for my Windows machine.

Gorgeous. Any regrets? love/hate it? Looking at getting a pro 3
Thanks.
No regrets, I love it! I got the Pro 2 because it has the EMR screen which you can use a S-pen on. I use this tablet to take handwritten notes in class, at meetings etc, with OneNote. The Samsung S-pen experience beats the capacitive pen input by a long shot. The touch screen deactivates when it senses the S-Pen near the screen so you can rest your palm on the glass while writing.

Then I take the tablet home, dock it and transcribe my notes with the full desktop set up as seen. Runs the full word/excel/powerpoint suite.

You get the full windows desktop experience and portable tablet in one device.
