    Just curious.
    Also want to determine whose computer is the most beastly.
    Mine are:
    Intel celeron 420 1.6GHz
    3GB DDR3 RAM
    148GB HD
    GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR2 graphics card
    and a bunch of dust covering it all.

    Must admit, not the most capable machine, but gets its job done for now.

    Holy crap!! Is all that in one computer?? Your processor has a lot of words after it lol.
    Man, that thing can power a space shuttle. Did you build it yourself?

    Well the Synology NAS and Mac Mini sit next to my monitor, otherwise, yeah, it's all in one box.

    Yep, built it myself. Pics of the build: http://forum.corsair.com/forums/album.php?u=15

    Looks complicated. Does it take long to get the whole 'building a computer' thing down? I'd like to do so in the future. I mean, I know pretty much all the parts, but as of now, putting it all together seems like a nightmare.

    Compatibility issues aside, not too long. There's tons of videos / tutorials online nowadays that can teach you the basics. If you decide to build one yourself, it's a good idea to have a friend help you that's done it before. Do a lot of research beforehand, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

    You're big on lenovos huh? Nonetheless, that's a really nice machine. Is it a single core? My friend had a single core 3.5GHz processor, and he used it as a hand-warmer, it was so hot. In fact, I think he said it melted the bottom of his laptop.
