The machine my BF hand-built for me for my 21st birthday - it's getting old and clunky now (I'll be 27 in September), despite his efforts to upgrade it now and then, so I'll have to replace it soon.

(I've held off this long for sentimental reasons.)

ETA I have a tiny Sony Viao for taking to lectures and things with me. I love it, it's very light and super portable. The downside is that because it's small it's screen is also tiny, so it's not really useful for much other than typing, even though it's got a powerful chip.

I'm on a Mac PowerBook G4 laptop which I love, my husband has a Dell laptop, plus his work HP laptop, and we have a hardly used desktop of some sort, plus various other machines that do.... stuff. My hubby is a geek, what can I say!

Oh and we have some sort of fast internet....

Home built desktop machine because nothing was "good enough" for me at the time.

I've had it three years and the biggest upgrade I need to do is add RAM. I'm not a gamer, like theimp98, but I'm kind of a control freak. Intel is the devil and the only AMD machines being built by computer companies were more $$ than I wanted to pay.

I am going to talk to my hubby-to-be and see what we can afford to replace in my machine, just to make it last another three years without me throwing it out the window.

As for Internet, Cable all the way.

Last August I bought a Compaq Presario SR1020T which lots of adds to it!!
I too am on dial up as the only alternative is cable but since we don't have cable (or DISH) tv service its the only service in this semi-rural area.

My computer is a Compaq Desk Top with Dial-up. At the present time, this computer is packed away waiting for me to move.
The computer I am using now is a Dell Dimension Desk Top. I don't know about the internet.
I plan on upgrading my internet after I move. To which ever one is the next step up from Dial-up.

We have a brand-new Dell XPS600 PC, which I absolutely love. I appreciate that Dell makes computers for morons (I'm reasonably knowledgeable about computers, but my boyfriend -- whose computer it is -- is soooo not technologically inclined ; ours was pretty much plug-and-play, with all the bits and pieces included (including a very pretty 19" LCD monitor!). I could gush about this baby for days on end ...

I also have an ancient IBM ThinkPad 1200 laptop that I bought for university and for writing. The CD-ROM refuses to believe it has a disk in it, but I don't need it in order to use the computer (we game on the desktop and I don't use my laptop to listen to music). However, I do need power, and the adaptor is starting to die. I've tried hunting down a new one, but I think I may be out of luck. It will be a sad day when my laptop no longer works ...

Edited to add: We have highspeed Internet, but only on the desktop; the laptop would cry if I made it connect to the Internet.

As for the computer I use at work, if I had a sledgehammer with me, it would be a pile of smashed shiny bits. I type too quickly for it to keep up, and I can no longer shut it down at night -- there's a good chance it will never start again. Will it be replaced with something better? I sincerely doubt it. I am, after all, just a temp. But you know that episode of The Simpsons where Homer tries to build a BBQ (and ends up turning it into modern art and becoming, briefly, a famous artist)? The scene where he screams and charges at the BBQ -- that's me trying to make my work computer "go."

Rob builds our computers, because that's his hobby. Currently I'm running an AMD 2600+, 1.92 Gh processor with 512 Mb of RAM. I may add some more RAM at some point, but more important would be a larger hard drive, and a flat panel monitor (I've still got the old clunk 17"). Internet is ADSL.

Rob's computer is much the same, except he sprang for a 19" LCD a few months ago.
