    Default What desktop or laptop do you have?

    Hi everyone! I made the poll broad based on OS, then post below to specify what kind of desktop or laptop do you have. I did this because if some of you are like me, I just couldn't stand pat with one OS.

    I'll start. I have a...

    Dell XPS 400 (Windows)
    Acer C710 Chromebook (Chrome)
    MacBook Pro 15" (Mac of course , mid-2012)--work device

    2012 13" MBP i7
    2010 Mac Mini

    Those are mine, I'd list my wife's but I don't touch them, lol...going this weekend to take a look at the new MBP's, and the wife just packed up her iMac and is selling it to one of her co-workers with the idea of possibly ordering a Mac Pro (though that price tag scares the sh*t out of me, lol).

    I have a Dell Dimensions desktop that I picked up 4 years ago at Staples for $499. No problems at all with it so far. However, with my kids always using it for school work and games I'm looking at purchasing a new MBP for myself. I "might" allow my husband to use it too once in a while, lol.

    I appreciate all the responses so far. It's interesting that some of you have dual-booted your devices. I've considered putting in Linux (Crouton) into my Chromebook, which if I do that, then I cover just about all the desktop OS bases. Keep your responses coming!

    Dell Inspiron N4110 running Windows 7 Ultimate. Downgraded from Windows 8 because I got tired of the childish UI and lack of WiFi control settings. Installed a beautiful backlit keyboard on it last month works like a charm

    I used to run crouton on my Samsung 3 chromebook but I found that I didn't boot into it that often. I've been contemplating a Mac Mini but it is about $300 more expensive than my preference (a $300 laptop running Debian).

    Right now I only own a Samsung 3 Chromebook.
