    Self build from 2008 - upgraded to a Phenom II x4 from an old Athlon x2. 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD + 500GB HDD, 780G graphics in a old Antec case. Love it, still plenty fast enough for what I need.

    Mine is a Precision T3400, 3gig dualcore with 4gb ram and an additional hard disk for VMs, apart from that it's the same beast as the first batch of Dells we had here. Given thought to upgrading to a T3500 (second wave of stations here), which would give me a Xeon..or a T1650 which would give me 8 cores, 16gb ram and the SSD, but..to be fair, I haven't killed the T34 yet. Even pegged at max RAM and max CPU for hours at a time and mercilessly thrashed for 4 years, it's yet to miss a beat.

    I'm happy with it - same spec, same build image as the current student one. I test them on myself first, heh.

    Core i7-4770K, 16GB RAM, 256GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD, Nvidia GT 610 quad display graphics card.

    Self build about 2 months ago.

    Reason I have such a powerful machine - I use it heavily for running virtual machines, programming and video encoding. I had an i7 920 (my technician now has it) before that and it just wasn't up to the jobs I was asking it to do!

    We have self-build i5-2400 with 8GB RAM, 128GB Samsung 830 SSDs and extra hard drives - as others say, virtual machines and video editing. I'm also of the opinion that our computers need to be quick because people are often waiting on them/us to do something for them; the quicker the machine, the less time they're stood about eating our biscuits. I think the GPU is an nVidia 210, whatever was cheapest to let me hang two monitors off it.

    We were on left-over scraps before that, random Core2 HPs and RMs.

    I've got a load of HP Z600 & Z800 Xeon workstations at the moment. They're proving really popular as NM workstations. And with two 55xx series Xeon Quad Cores, upto 48GB RAM and an SSD I can see why!

    I snaffled the highest spec machine in the school when I rolled out Win 7 (elitism etc, I know)

    Core 2 Duo, 3 GB RAM and 74GB HDD

    Will soon be left behind though when I roll out the new laptops to teachers. I want them to have the newest machines as that hopefully reduces the chances of failures in classrooms (other than that our machines are all approaching 5 years old). If my machine goes down, I will probably find a way to get by, but classroom staff wouldn't.
