Post your dream computer here

Here is mine:

OS: Fedora Core or OpenSUSE OR Ubuntu
Window Manager: Beryl and Blackbox
Desktop Environments: Blackbox, and GNOME
Compatibility layer: CrossOver Linux and/or Wine + Wine-Doors (an addon to Wine that is ,I think a fork or a similarity to WineTools but better and less dangerous to Wine)

Hardware:

Can;t decide yet but it will have lots of expensive and lavish hardware.
Plus a floppy drive

It will be a Desktop computer with a PCI wireless card or a USB wireless device
Plus CD-RW,DVD-RW,Blu-Ray (read and write), HD-DVD (read and write) combo drives (if possible to have 1 or 2, 1 for CD and DVD and the other for HD-DVD or Blu-Ray or just 1 combo drive.

64-bit

I would probably have to have a 2nd machine because not too many programs work with XP x64. The problem is that is the only way to max out the RAM to 16Gb . WinXP32 cannot handle it. If I won the lottery though I might be able to afford another machine though.

BTW Current Retail price for that beauty was only $15,900!

Scan and email.

I was thinking of just scanning and emailing them my cash. I think it might work. I have a pretty good scanner. Of course with a machine like that I might be able to print my own money with it. Wink

Yep

I'd say around 8TB in just hard-disks and 2TB in network storage.
I need a lot of space for the things I want to do (various projects, homework archives, website designs, custom Linux distros).

Argh,

my apple.com session has timed out, basically it was a fully specified Mac Pro with an XSevre and 32gb of ram backing it up, oh and 10.5 TB of hard drive space! As for being a Mac person, I'd tri-boot it, Ubuntu Vista and OSX

Yours

LOL

I'd probably Quad-boot it: Ubuntu, XP, Vista and OSX.
Even better, deca-boot it: Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Red Hat, Debian, Gentoo, XP, Vista, OSX Panther and OSX Tiger. Biggrin

Dream computer

until just yesterday, my dream PC was the 17" Macbook Pro. But after talking with a few people who "really know macs", I found out that Autocad does not work well with a Mac, say via Parallels or Boot Camp. So I guess I'll have to start looking around, maybe a Dell.

Goin that way...

I hate M$ and all that they do,I declare windows and its 400,000 viruses malware. The only reason I use windows is because Im a gamer and its not possible to run my games on Ubuntu (Not even thru wine, I think) But if i could use my games on Ubuntu (BattleField 2142, Halo) consider my hard-drive formatted. I have tried dual boot, but i am having extreme trouble.

Hewlett Packerd Vectra vlI8 mt with a pentium III @ 450 mhz, (hoping to get a quad core xenon), an unfortunate 385 megs ram, (hoping to boost it to 1 gigabyte), two HDD's, one 6.06 gigs, other is 40, gigs, (hoping to get a 400 gig) one cd drive (currently inoperational), one touch keyboard, ethernet, (hoping to get wireless). i am hoping for a lot of stuff for the ghettoest comp on the face of the earth. i gat an hdd cable from a 2003 pavillion as well as a floppy drive from the same comp, my case light is a little tri led closet light stuck tot eh bottom of the case, the case side no longer stayes attached. i consider myself a computer miricalworker. my other ainchent piece is a pb-55 otherwise known as a packerd bell pack-mate x-20 from 1989 running win 3.0, i have kept it running for 12 years of its 18 year life.

OMG.

My next computer, will probally be an HP, with dual boot Windows XP/Perhaps Vista, and Ubuntu 6.06/7.04. A Dual Core Porcessor. Some kinda great grahics. Built in webcam. (Maybe) DVD and CD Burn, all I need really. Like, so many gigs of RAM. 500/600 gigs or HD should be fine. It would be a laptop as well. And some other fun stuff. That's not my DREAM computer, just the one I wanna be able to afford.

I would go with:

I would go with:

-15" Screen laptop (I love mobility)
-Intel Core Duo 2 Mobile processor
-Highest speeds I can get
-Best Radeon vid card I can get
-best etc. etc. etc.
-Oh, and Win XP Pro or Vista Ultimate (I despise all other operating systems :wink:)

Not really a dream computer, I would probably go with a high-end desktop somewhere around $16 grand.

I'd say I'd replace my good old CF-72 (p3-650 256meg ram) with this:
