    No idea. It’s just some big black boxy thing with no logo or anything on it. Runs Windows XP, I mostly use Excel 2003.

    Sadly, an HP running Windows XP. Sort of the Trash80 of today.

  3. Jar Says:

    We use Lenovos with XP, nothing fancy.

    I’m using a quad-core Mac Pro running Snow Leopard with a 30″ Apple Cinema display and a crappy 17″ Dell display as a second monitor.

  5. Bruce Says:

    Work in an income tax office, running Dell and generic P4s with 32 bit Vista or Win7, no XP.

    I work in publishing, so it’s Macs for us. I use a Mac Mini with a way-the-hell-outdated version of OSX (10.3? 10.4? I dunno. I’m more of a Windows guy).

    Also, I miss the days when a woman could wear a tribble on her head without fear of criticism or reprisal.

    When I was a kid, I used to love the Radio Shack catalogs. I used to read them over, and over, and over. Wanting pretty much everything…

    I work at an engineering office. We have Dell models ranging from GX-280’s up to GX-780’s. The older models are finally supposed to be replaced this year.

    since i work @ home, the kind of computer i’m using is self-built. it’s an athlon x2 4800+ with 4gig of ram, radeon 6670, bit over 1terabyte of storage, standard dvd writer and standard black box for casing. nothing fancy, but enough for me to play games and work in the same device.
