Just wondering.... What kind of computer is everyone here using?

my computer:
HP Pavilion a6750f (tweaked)

- Changed to full tower case (more space, better air flow)
- Upgraded ALL fans (better air / cooling)
- Upgraded Power Supply
- Removed 15 in 1 card reader
- Removed internal USB wireless adaptor
- Added ASUS PCE-N13 wireless card
- Added 1 TB Hard Drive (which replaced the dead 750 GB)
- Added 80GB Hard Drive (for backups)
- Upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium 64 to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 and Ubuntu / Debian
- Upgraded to GeForce GT430 1 GB Graphics Card (was on-board ATI 3200HD)
- Added Vizio 32" HDTV w/full 1080-HD (VOJ320F1A) (Video and Sound HDMI)

Planed tweaks:
- Replace hard drive with solid state drive
-Upgrade RAM from 8GB PC6400 to max 16GB PC6400
-Upgrade CPU from AMD Phenom 4X 9650 to AMD Phenom II 4x 965 Black Edition
-Upgrade Power Supply (again)

MUCH later tweaks / Unsure tweaks:
- Add Blu-ray-RW

An HP PC from Wal-Mart. Nuff said.

I added some kind of graphics card and upgraded the ram but that's about it.

Too lazy to look up specs.

Coolermaster HAF X tower (I think), with 3 ish fans
Coolermaster Hybrid Pro 850W PSU (I mostly go this one for the fan control, after installing it my computer have barely made a noise)
Asus P67 Sabretoothe motherboard (with "thermal armor")
Intel i7 2600k I think
nVidia GTX 560 (one of the rebranded ones, can't remember which one)
8GB RAM (2x 4GB Corsair Vengance)
3 HDD (500GB, 1TB and 1 120 SSD)
I have one external wireless dongle, I think it is a rebranded Ralink chip, made by Jensen Scandinavia. I got it from my ISP once, never saw a need to replace it. I also have an external 2 TB disk, which I mostly bought because my dad was getting one and it was very cheap. I really don't have any need for it ATM, but you never know when the need arises. I have bought the parts on and off for the past year or two, quite pleased with the result. Entire thing is running Windows 7 64 bit, I don't remember which edition, but one of the top tier ones. I used to run Xubuntu on it, and all the hardware worked pretty good on it, but then I started gaming on my computer, and I never booted in to Linux after that, so I just scrapped it all together.

I have the beast connected throuhg HDMI to my 40 inch LED TV, sound through some Logitech PC speakers, which are insanely good. I also have Logitech MX5500 wireless keyboard and mouse, which I highly recommend, if only for the mouse (MX Revolution). I have two Revolutions, and the oldest one is between 3 - 5 years (or maybe more), the newest one is less than a year, and the only difference between the two is the fact that one is bluetooth and the other is not. Unfortunately it is a strict right handed mouse, but you can use your left hand for it as well, but it is not as comfortable then (I can use both hands on the mouse).

Send me your computers, immediately.
lol, I know how you feel. My current build originated as a stock HP PC, then I slowly, but surely built on top of that. I never spent that much at once, think the biggest single expenses was the tower and the mobo / CPU upgrade kit.
