An cheap but capable laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad Edge e520)

Intel Core i5-2450M
4GB RAM
500GB HDD
AMD Radeon HD 6630M (1GB VRAM)
1366x768 15.6'' Display

However, it runs Linux with a very lightweight set of software, so it can easily compete with more powerful machines running Windows/OSX. Smiley

That can be arranged. I'll just go grab my two old desktop towers and create a seat from which to code!

From the last time this was asked, I haven't upgraded much other than the OS is now Windows 8.1 x64 and I added a 120GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD.

I'm actually thinking of upgrading my graphics card to the GTX 770, but I'm trying to limit my spending! Cheesy

I code on IntelliJ IDEA for Java, Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 for C#, and Sublime2 for C++.

Here's an updated picture btw:

That desktop... it has too many shortcuts on it for me! I love mine almost spotless with a folder here or there and the trash bin! Anymore than that and I go on a cleaning spree and delete all of it!

FX 6300
XFX R7850
600W Corsair PSU
2x4 gigs of DDR3 RAM
Can't remember the motherboard... oh well
1 TB hard drive

21 inch 1920x1080 monitor
20.5 inch monitor that supports some odd resolution... I keep it at 1280x1024 because that monitor runs off my integrated graphics...

I also am learning Python on my RaspberryPi, so I guess that counts too!

Eclipse for Java, visual studio for any C* library, and notepad++ for HTML/CSS.

Your desktop sounds like it has too many shortcuts for me.

I keep my desktop 100% clean from anything. It makes me look more professional. (and I like my wallpaper Smiley)

My wallpaper is just a screenshot from one of my games... I really have to change it, although it tiles quite nicely (it's a tile based game) Wink

The three folders on my desktop are really driving me crazy, but I'm trying to get over my weird obsession for cleaning it off!

Yep, no icons on the desktop screen is fun.  I run Fedora (Linux), and for every new version there are always beautiful wallpapers (this is Gnome Shell with the latest wallpaper), so I always use their wallpapers and have disabled ever putting anything on the desktop.  Because I use Gnome Shell, I can get to everything that I would have on the desktop just by opening up the Activities menu, so it works well.  Being able to disable putting anything on the desktop completely ties into why I love Linux; it lets me do almost whatever I want.  It's not a great example of complete control, but still, I love complete control.

In terms of specs, my old answer applies except for that I switched to Fedora as my OS and video games never distract me anymore.  In most cases it is programming distracting me from work that I actually need to get done.  For example, right now (this is not programming, but I still count it among the bunch).  I am pretty sure that this laptop will last a really long time, considering that right now I have my email client (Evolution), chat client (Empathy), browser (Firefox), internet radio streamer (Rhythmbox), file browser (Nautilus), Emacs, and PDF viewer (Evince) open and the CPU usage is about 2--5%.  I am glad.  I also have an old 2005 computer that I am looking to set up for cross-compiling Windows binaries for C, among other compilations.  It is running Crunchbang right now.  In terms of what I use now, I have started to use Emacs for everything.  In my case, everything is typically C, Ruby, Python, Java, and C#.  I typically have the left half of my screen showing Emacs, and the right half of my screen showing Terminator.  I then usually split Terminator horizontally so that I have two terminals; the top half I usually use for running what I am working on, and the bottom half I use for calling git and any other Shell commands that I may need.  This is an example of what I mean, with me working on a Rails website.  Excuse the ugly code; others wrote the majority of the code, as I started working on that website a year after it was written.  At the time that it was written, those who wrote it did not have good code style.  They do now, though, but the ugly code remains.  I really love Emacs because it is so configurable.  I used to use Sublime Text, but it wasn't free software so I decided to find free software that could compete.  Emacs does, once you install packages that do what you want.

Those desktop shortcuts are just all my Steam games......as a reminder of how I really need to start playing them. I buy buy buy without playing any of them.

Yeah, I almost posted something along the lines of "These kinds of threads are so cute!" but decided against it (at least, at the time).

As for me, I code on an Apple IIe.  Getting Java to run on it has been incredibly difficult.

There are just too many opportunities for ranting and comic relief, I'm afraid.  Those of you who like to start these kinds of threads really should understand this by now.

This kind of thread is very useful for the following reasons:
  • Some housebreakers can make their spottings
  • Those who have no big d*** can compensate their frustration(s) especially if they have no big car
  • They are happy to show that they have some money to spend in computer hardware

Ok, so "no big d***", a little car and a poor Athlon 3800+ on Windows 7... hum... I hate my life  Grin
Seriously, all I also really need, is a computer where I can type, compile and run programs.
However, sometimes and for many other reasons, I just would like more comfort...
