    I have an iMac mid 2007 with an Intel core2duo 2GHz processor.
    For years I've used only Apple OSes, but now I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 64bit, since the last two Apple OSes (Lion & Mountain Lion) are too much expensive in terms of hardware requirements.

    Mac Mini base model is only 599USD and will perform well enough for most all users. It has a Core i5 CPU at 2.5GHz, 4GB of RAM, 500GB HDD and uses the Intel HD4000 iGPU. Not bad at all and can be upgraded to a SSD very easily. My Wife has the Airbook with a 1.7GHz i5 CPU and with the 128GB SSD (flash drive) its very quick and runs photoshop and Lightroom with ease. So I dont think the cost is to high. IMHO.. Compared to a Ubuntu system that I would build, practically use the same hardware and very close to the same cost. But Mac Mini is such a nice package. Now I dont use the Apple displays, very tempted to and may get one when Thunderbolt Display gets upgraded to USB 3.0. But point is I use Asus LCD with my Mini and its does just fine. So I just dont understand how OSX is supposed to cost more hardware wise.

    you're right, Apple mini is a very useful PC and really cheap considering its performances, but... why should I spend any money, when my old iMac works perfectly with Ubuntu?

    For word processing, Internet browsing, email, all the routine stuff, I have a 2002 eMachines desktop with a Celeron(d) 2.66 GHz processor and 80gb internal memory, with a Seagate 500gb external drive to store most files in. It originally ran Windows XP SP3, and until recently ran quite well, until compatibility issues and system crashes/slowdowns led me to install Ubuntu.

    I anticipate using this machine for at least two or more years, as I have not yet found an application that won't run on it.

    HP p6000 series
    AMD Athlon X 2 2.5 Ghz
    8 GB PC2-6400 DDR2 RAM
    nVidia GeForce 9100s
    750 GB HD 7200 RPM
    Generic USB Wireless N dongle (I think Ralink RT3070 chipset)
    Logitech MX3200 Keyboard/Mouse (Wireless)
    Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 64 bit (runs flawlessly despite the Vista hate)
    Dell 19" Widescreen/Gateway 17" dual Monitor setup

    Thinking of installing 12.04 LTS 64 bit on this
    Run various Linux distros off USB stick

    Eventually, I may upgrade chip to AMD Phenom X 4,increase RAM to 16 GB, and install SSD, but for now, it runs very fast and don't feel the need to do so.

    My current lappy is in my signature, works a dream with kubuntu 12.04.1 amd64. Previously i used an HP g56-127nr, it worked a dream too, but maybe i over used its weak CPU, it died, and thus the upgrade.
