I think this is sort of a dumb thread, but decided to play anyway.

I have a Dell Inspiron 7720 w/Intel i7-3630Q @ 2.40GHz & 8gb RAM, that I bought refurbished one year ago that has seen many hours of use every day with zero problems so far.

Runs AmigaForever quite well, but have not tried to run AROS on it yet.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

I use a Toshiba A200-1TW laptop with Windows 7, but installing the right drivers was takes a lot of effort. I maybe try to upgrade with Windows 8.1. This laptop also has a HD-DVD drive in it.


My other laptop is a Clevo W110ER from BTO and installing Windows 7 and Windows 8 works without difficulties. This is my portable gaming rig.

I'm kind of freak - 3 laptops on my desk but the lowest on the stack just gathering dust; perhaps should give it to my wife. And the 4th is packed to get binned as the screen doesn't work.

Dell Vostro 3300, 13.3" "Workshop" pc. 64Bit
Intel Core i3 370M 2.4Ghz (expandable to I5 430M)
3 GB ram (expandable to 8)
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics
320 GB hdd

I bought mine in 2010 and used it as a school computer. used it on my workbench.
It is probably somewhat filled with metal filings from my time at the gunsmithing school. Still runs like a charm. A bit weak battery capacity.
It is not in daily use, as i prefer stationary computers. But there has never been a single tick about it.
Have been considering using linux, but it still runs on the same W7 install. and it runs well.

It does not have fantastic graphics capabilities. with the intel built-in graphics. but it plays older games at an ok framerate. world of tanks goes at 3-5 FPS...

a link to a review of the newer version of the computer.
And the speakers are HORRIBLE.... I use the music angel for sound.

I am very happy and pleased with the computer. and will be sad the day it dies.

I'm all for IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T or W series machines (or X if you want smaller sizes). The company I work for has used nothing but Thinkpads since pre 2000.
