I like computers that have a quad-core intel i7 processor with AMD Radeon HD 6970M graphics processor with 1GB of GDDR5 memory (video card). A 1TB harddrive. And 16 GB of RAM. Kind of like the mac computers, don't make much noise and don't over heat. What kind of hardware do you like?

Wut? Do you mean, what's our dream computer? Or, what's our current computer specs? Or, what's our favorite piece of hardware?

A good PC isn't the best one you can buy, but in fact it is the one that fills your needs.

If you are talking about hardware(not necessarily a computer), I think I like ENC28J60 controller connected thru the SPI interface to a PIC from 18F, 24F, 32F series(I am an Microchip PIC fan not an Atmel AVR).

Why I chose a ENC28J60 its because it gives you the possibility to make a pocket size Server(it supports 10BASE-T).

Price != Quality. Computers #1.

Currently, mine is the Raspberry Pi. <3

Lol. Don't get so attracted to your fans and keyboards. Soon those will be obsolete.

There will always be a keyboard and a fan, it'll just be in a different form.
