What computer do you use?

Forgive me if there's another similar topic that died long ago, but I thought it'd be interesting to see what computer other forum users are using. I guess I'll start...

My main computer is a Lenovo ThinkPad W541. 2.8GHz Intel Core i7, 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, dedicated NVIDIA "Quadro" graphics and Windows 10 Professional.

Another computer I have with me is a 2006-ish IBM ThinkPad T42. 1.8 GHz Intel Pentium M "Dothan", 512MB RAM, 25GB hard drive running Windows 7 Ultimate. (Yes, Windows 7 on 512MB RAM!)

Other computers I own: early 2014 MacBook Air, late 2014 MacMini, Dell Inspiron 620, Asus Essentio Series, early-mid 2000's HP Pavilion, ThinkPad T420*, Acer AspireOne Netbook**
*resting in peace.
**missing in action... have been unable to locate since we moved houses back in 2017.

Old stuff, but mostly functional for most of my needs -- still photo editing, writing and web stuff.

Both are 2012 models:
  • Acer mini-tower, good AMD quad core CPU but rock bottom mobo graphics and topped out at 8 GB RAM. It's fine for my still photography editing in Lightroom, no need for better graphics, although more RAM would help a little. But I can't stream HD movies or edit videos without better graphics. It's still on Windows 7. I should have taken advantage of the free Windows 10 update when it was available a couple of years ago.
  • Lenovo laptop with decent AMD dual core GPU, not bad for a bargain priced laptop. The GPU will stream movies and handle modest video editing. I updated it from Windows 7 to 10 two or three years ago. Win10 is just different, not better. This machine could benefit from more RAM but mostly could use an SSD.

I don't see myself getting a "better" PC anytime soon. I might get a newer laptop that's better able to handle video editing, but that's about all. I use my phones and tablets more often now for most chores.

For work, a Thinkpad X1 Carbon. Mostly use it to RDP into Azure VMs.

Home, an Acer something. Doesn't get that much use.

Apple. All Apple. Been that way since 1985. Mac Pros, iMacs, MacBooks, iPods, iPads, iPhones. We don't just drink the kool-aid, we bathe in it. We also own a bit of Apple stock. To say it's been a great investment would be an understatement. We have been very, very fortunate.

I converted my Asus Essentio series desktop to a "server" of sorts, running Linux Mint. If someone is wanting to get into the world of Linux, I highly recommend trying either Mint or Ubuntu.

All Mac here too. I have a 2010 MacBook Pro, 17 inches, upgraded with a terabyte SSD hard drive. I am retired but still do a lot of editing for other attorneys so I have it stuffed with word processors. Nisus Writer, Word, Pages, WordPerfect (running on Win 10 on Parallels).

But most of my day to day stuff (like right now) is on an iPad.

We also bought Apple stock years ago at a single digit price. :-)

This past year I put together my own tower and it's definitely a bit overkill for my uses. I think my next build is going to be something more portable and affordable.

My desktop system is one I built using a SandyBridge i7-2700k overclocked to 4.7GHZ. 16GB RAM, an SSD, a couple spindle drives, and a GTX1070 graphics card. The i7-2700k is pretty old, but surprisingly good at hanging in there as a decent CPU, seven years later.

My work-provided laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad x1 Carbon 6th Gen, with an 8th Gen i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, and an SSD.
My personal laptop is the same exact model. I liked it enough that I bought one for myself.

My old laptop that's been granted to the kids is an HP Core2 Duo.

My tinkering equipment includes a few Raspberry Pi 3B+'s, and some Arduino boards.

My work laptop is really just a development environment and a portal into the tens of thousands of production VMs my code actually runs on.

Does it still output this thin fuzzy stuff on it's case that requires daily maintenance?

windoze at work out of necessity (best part: Visual Studio IDE for C++; worst part: Windoze), but at home all linux all the time.

Family 'desktop' is an Intel NUC. So small,it sits on top of its own external optical drive, and has a smaller footprint. 128 GB SSD on a tiny form-factor chip, decent processor (intel something 4 cores), decent RAM (4GB? 8GB? I forget). It runs like a champ. Then again, 90% of its use is just youtube, and 99% of its use is browsers (the rest I code a bit of perl, python, C++ for fun)

My laptop I recently picked up off CL. It's a hp something with a 4-core i5. It also has some ram and a spinning hard drive (500gb?). It has no (working) battery, and no panel to enclose the guts on the bottom. While I'm 'working' on 3D printing a replacement panel, the exposed guts have had no issues (if anything, better ventilation). It's got a nice wide screen and a full keyboard (including number pad). It's ok to lug the weight around to not feel cramped. Some day I'll get a battery and not also lug around the cable. (This one actually has W10 on it, it came that way, but I immediately dual-booted linux onto it and never use the windoze)

Two kids at home have laptops. One is a Lenovo IdeaPad 110s(?), absolute piece of crap when we bought it as a Windows 10 machine. Comes with 32GB storage and 2GB RAM, both this new tech that is absolutely not upgradeable. Windoze was screaming for updates and couldn't execute them because no room on the drive. So I wiped that (with extreme prejudice) and put linux on it, now it's pretty happy. Very underpowered still, but if you don't open too many browser tabs at once, it's fine. Very light weight and slim, great battery life. Easy to carry to school, easy to plug in 2nd HDMI monitor and USB mouse/keyboard on the desk at home.

The other (lower priority) kid has what we call the "craptop". No battery, busted wifi card, 9 rows of dead pixels. But with a usb wifi card and an external monitor, it's not a bad stationary machine. Fine for writing homework assignments.

Those NUC's are tiny. A couple years ago when I was involved with a local nonprofit who is trying to get a community computer lab off the ground, I ran a fundraiser to purchase a new computer for them. (Was hoping to buy more, but the fundraiser didn't go as planned. But one is better than none.) The new computer was a Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny. Those things really are fairly small - it took a fraction of the space the huge Dell Optiplex it replaced consumed. Dell and HP have computers in similar form factors, but I'm a Lenovo (Think series stuff) guy.

Speaking of your son's Lenovo IdeaPad, I'm sorry to hear about the issues. I'm not a huge fan of how computer manufacturers are transitioning to "non-upgradable" machines. That is one of the reasons I'm not a huge fan of new (since 2014) Mac machines - you better plan for the future and buy the most future-proof machine you can, because there is no upgrading them. Unfortunately, those machines are also the most expensive.

I've lately been torn between Mac or PC, probably more so than in the past. I love my ThinkPads and like Windows 10 (although it has its rough edges), but I'm entering an industry that is dominated by Macs. I use both on a daily basis (as previously mentioned, I use a ThinkPad W541 at home for personal uses [like this] and a late 2013 iMac at work) and enjoy working with both. I've used Adobe's Creative Cloud suite (I use a lot of InDesign and Photoshop, with some Premiere, Illustrator, Audition and Dreamweaver mixed in) on both and haven't ran into any snags. When my W541 is deemed obsolete, I'm not sure if I'm going to switch back to using a Mac primarily, or just buy another ThinkPad.

Hopefully, it's a good while before I have to make that call. 2018 was a horrible year for me with computers. My ThinkPad T420 died back in March 2018 due to complications after I disassembled it to clean the heat sink fan and reapply new thermal paste to the CPU and GPU. Then I replaced it with a T450 that lasted three months or so before the screen decided to die on me, so I waited another month and half to get my current W541. All three of those machines were refurbished models (which I highly recommend to anyone in the market for a new computer. You can find some REALLY good deals, at least on PCs.)

I used to be a huge fan of Macs, then I switched back to using Windows primarily. Now that I'm using Macs primarily at work and for classes, and it dominates the field I'm entering, it makes me wonder if I should switch back to maintain consistency.

Try Linux some time. There's no good reason, IMO, for most people to run Windows any more, except for Photoshop and Adobe software, and a few specialized programs, and many of these can be emulated in Linux using WINE. I like how an given Linux OS installation won't self-destruct after a year or two, as Windows is seemingly designed to do. This seems to be a way to trick people into needlessly upgrading their computer hardware every year or two (and sell another copy of Windows).

All my computers, new and old run Linux; Two on Ubuntu, One on Centos, One on Lubuntu, and the PIs on either Raspbian, Retroarch, or Mate.

Our servers at work are mostly Centos with a few Fedora.

I haven't run Windows except within a VM since 2010. I hear it is getting better, but I'm not ready to forgive past misdeeds yet.

I actually have a server running Linux Mint, that I occasionally log on to use for other purposes. I've tried running some programs in WINE with mixed results. One of those was an older copy of Dreamweaver than ran fine in Windows 7 and 10, but would crash every time in Mint using WINE.

I'd still rather have a Mac or Windows for my main "daily driver" because I do a lot of work using Adobe Software. While Linux (especially common distros like Mint and Ubuntu) isn't too complex, I still like the ease of use that Windows and Mac offer. I also like how it's guaranteed that your program will run (and be properly supported) using a Mac or Windows, while emulation using WINE can be a toss-up. Granted, I don't hate Linux and Google's ChromeOS - I just don't think it suits my needs as well.

My biggest problem down the road is going to be deciding whether to switch back to Mac or buy another PC.

While I'm not computer illiterate, I'm also not a computer scientist who can remember every UNIX (or Linux) command. I guess another reason I'm not a huge fan of the idea of using a Linux box as my main computer is, at least with the version of Mint I'm running, there is a lot of settings that can be configured only from the command line. Don't get me wrong, I like running some software from the command line, especially when it's in my free time. It reminds me of what Microsoft Windows was like back in the 1990s, before it broke free away from its MS-DOS roots. But when I need to sit down to do some work, I just want to turn the computer on and get right to work.
