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...

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

We have Fujitsu Seimans T4210 upgraded to core duo 2ghz and 120gb hard disk with 4gb ram on docking station love this bit of kit had it 2 years and still does everything we need.
