I use my PC that I need to upgrade badly. The thing still has PCI slots and only PCI slots. I could build my own rig for about $700 plus shipping, the only problem being that I need $800 :cry:

Laptop or predominantly desktop, with the latter running a nice raid setup and a version of XP that has been purged of most undesirables including IE and windows media player.

With your hands?! I guess I've been doing this all wrong, laying my lappy on the floor and using my toes.

I've tried using my mind a few times, but kept getting 404s due to falling asleep. ~_~

Access MT rarely on other things because my lappy is like a six pound tumor that I love.

Well usually, I call a committee of my most trusted subordinates together in a soundproof, windowless room. Then we discuss the matter at hand, every member speaking their opinion in turn, followed by a rigorous discussion of said opinion. Once we have have each finished our respective turn, if we have decided in favor of posting, we suggest people to add to the committee to decide what to post. Then once we have a sufficient roster, we cast preliminary votes. These votes are kept completely secret and are set aside in heavily locked and guarded(guards must have a full backround check and are ordered to use deadly force if needed)room until we can vote on a neutral party to count the tallies. This neutral party, composed of no less than 3 and no more than 5 people with a minimum of 10 years of experience counts the votes, and writes a formal report detailing the results of the preliminary vote. We then take a 5 minute recess, following a thorough discussion of the preliminary committee members, etc etc.

Gee, now I can’t make a crack about being a self perpetuating entity that exists within the internet. Way to take away all my fun Wingnut.

I use my PC. Not the best computer hooked into the series of tubes but it serves me well for the time being. If only my DSL would stop dieing on me once every week I’d be able to do a heck of a lot more online.

I was going to say something funnyish, but since Wingnut red lighted it, I guess I have to admit that desktop at home, laptop when I travel (i.e. when at my mom's house, 'coz the comp there was the one they designed the original wheel on), and, my other desktop when at work. It is a great recreational tool when you're suffering through PowerPoint poisoning. Yes I said it. I dare the tech support people to come and get me for wasting valuable (nay, priceless) company time!

I, like most of the other people here, make about 99.999867% of my posts from my home computer, the exact same five-year-old Dell I used on the old boards.

For all of maybe three posts, I've used the computers at school. 8)

I would usually post from my home computer... but that thing is a freakin' dinosaur (It still uses windows 98 :x ). So I usually post using the shiny new Macs and PCs at my school library.

My home PC, which incidentally (weather it's unfortunate or not is debatable), has more money invested in the audio aspect of it, then the entire rest of the system combined...

I use WinXP SP1, and my browser is Opera.

As I said before, it's usually my home PC, but some of my posts come from my school library PCs. This post right now is an example ;)

Our primar desktop is dead but that is 3 years older than my laptop, which also lacks several virii (dumb brother). In short I post from my laptop, at school or at home.
