Another Apple guy here. Bought my iMac almost 2 years ago and it has been the best computer I have ever owned, hands down. Just got an iPhone 4s now that they are available thru Sprint.

Thanks for the nostalgia Donutz! I see your Trash-80 and raise you a TI-99/4A with a 16-bit processor clocking at an astonishing 3MHz, with 256 bytes of "scratchpad" RAM, 16K of video RAM, and 40x24 character screen res.

Okay, that was only a few fewer years ago...

I have mostly low-end machines now, after many years of being closer to the other end of the spectrum. I'm a software developer and get most of my fix at work, so about all I do at home is surf the web which doesn't take much compared to what I needed in the old days for video editing and ray-tracing. Although since getting my GoPro last year, I will definitely be spending a bit more on my next upgrade.

Current home computers:
HP Desktop: Pentium E2220 (dual-core, 2.4GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
Compaq Laptop: Pentium T3400 (dual-core, 2.1GHz), 2GB RAM, 250GB HD, Windows Vista Home Basic
Power Mac G4 (my garage computer): PowerPC (500MHz), 256MB RAM, 30GB HD, Xubuntu Linux 10.04

Work:
HP Z400 Workstation: Xeon W3550 (quad-core, 3.0GHz), 8GB RAM, 160GB HD, Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit, dual displays (23-inch and 19-inch)

I feel so old reading all this..... I remember the first computer I ever used didn't even have a hard drive, used a 6inch floppy to boot....it was this: http://www.obsoletecomputermuseum.org/oliv_m24/ Olivette, with green monochrome screen, then windows 95 came out, got a 286 with a 20meg hard drive and 16colour monitor Also had a Texas Instruments that you plugged into the TV and used a cassette player to load battleships, took about 5 mins to load the program.....analog baby! Oh, lets not forget the Commodore 64.
Now I'm rocking a 2 year old HP Compaq Presario with 2Ghz processor and 160gig hard drive, or something like that.....screen blacks out every now and then....but otherwise it does it's job.
