I do everything on this little thing:

  • Dell XPS 17 – June 2011
  • Intel® Core™ i7-2720QM CPU @ 2.20GHz
  • 8GB ram
  • 2×750GB drives
  • GeForce GT 555M (which I cannot actually use due to Linux + Optimus compatibility issues, so I’m running on onboard intel graphics, woo)
  • Linux Mint
  • All files stored locally on a QNAP NAS

edit: oh poo, hate getting the top post.

    Thanks. It actually fits 512GB, but I am more than happy with 92. It is a professional VFX/3D/CGI workstation, so not your usual PC.

    Just invested in a computer I have nicknamed “The Beast”:

    • Intel i7 3770K CPU
    • Intel Extreme Mobo
    • 32 GB RAM DDR3 1600
    • Quadro 2000 Graphic Card
    • COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler
    • 2.5 TB HDD (7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s)
    • Blu-Ray burner

    Quite the contrast with my old dual core laptop! :bigsmile:
