    I have a toshiba athlon x2 and an unbranded heap of crap too.

    I am winging for an Apple (but want one myself so might just bite the bullet) and I also want to build a mini-pc with an ITX board with touch screen but again...that may be a home project...

    I'm shocked people are working on their servers! Surely you can cobble some old bits together and build some kind of monster?!?

    It's not a question of cobbling together a monster - more that there is nowhere to put it

    Shove it in the rack and KVM it? I've got 7 servers and 2 workstations all in the space of a standard 42u (ish) rack...

    You must have a desk, though right?

    Both of us here don't get provided with a laptop, we have 1 that the techie uses but only because we managed to keep it a secret!

    I've gone through about 6 laptops in the past year, as each time I aquire one from somewhere, within a fortnight someone else's breaks and needs to be replaced, and guess what? mine is usually the only "spare" one going

    I've given up on having a laptop now, I'll stick to my desktop
    and I've always got my own personal eeePC (XP Pro) and HP iPaq to take with me on my travels

    Don't forget your brand new desktop!

    Core 2 Duo
    2GB RAM
    300GB HDD
    19" Widescreen

    I am still sitting here with a 2.4 GHz Intel Something, 256 MB RAM and 2x 40GB Hard drives, and mine does the most work!!

    I just replaced mine and my senior tech's laptop (Toshiba SP A100 - C2D 2GHz, 2gb of Ram, x1600gc) with the Acer 6920g. Nice laptop (we got it cheaper from our suppliers), the only gripe I have with it is the keyboard, it isn't as nice as the Tosh's. Had to wipe the OS to put Vista Enterprise 64-bit edition on so that I can use all 4gb of ram. It runs VM's sweetly...

    Replaced the acer aspire with a HP nx7400 (2GB RAM, 120GB HD, Core2 Duo) about 8 months ago, when we got a new head he said to me get a brilliant laptop for yourself and i'll have your old one. Now my old one is sat on my shelf after it has mysteriously got a big crack down the screen, but the head didn't drop it (or so he told me).......

    I always make sure our Senior Management have decent kit, it makes it easier to justify equipment for ICT support.

    I have a 17" Dell Precision M90 notebook with Core 2 Duo, Nvidia Quadro graphics, 2gb memory and a 100gb 7200 rpm HDD with a docking station and a 20" external TFT screen. The school got it 'free' from a supplier when we bought 80 DELL laptops from them and I claimed it

    Wow! I cant get over how many people here have work laptops. I make do with any that I commandeer from around the place but they are usually taken back in short order.

    Have got a decent spec desktop (unbranded) but it tends to slow with my daily applications, thats and it hates any kind of scanning equipment

    I did have an old lappy from years ago for switches as it was the only one with a serial port. Unfortunatly somewhere along the line of the build project (or this phase of it) it got damaged and so is now spare parts. Ah well, I can dream of a laptop someday
