    Mine is a used P3 that cost $100. It's got a decent video card, 512mg of RAM and a 10 gig hard drive. It does the job.

    I'm on a Pentium G5 Mac all day at work, then I go home to my G3 or my wife's Comcrap and cry. It makes the vein in my kneck stand out.

    An IT guy came and worked on the G5 the other day and remote linked it to windows, ran seamless in a shell. Me want.

    I have a Mac and a custom built PC. Bought the mac after the custom built PC had hardware/software incompatibilities and was able to do what I needed to do straight out of the box with the mac. I love my mac!

    I run a $60 Ex-Government Dell, Core 2 duo 2Ghz with 4GB ram, 1TB HD, running Windows 10.
    My phone has more power than it!

    I only use it to surf the net, do the RRB thing and run Paint.Net to design bikes, anything more would be a waste of money for me... Maybe slightly better graphics would be good to speed up the design process...
