Currently using an HP Compaq nw8440 - Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2Ghz/4Gb.
It's a lovely bit of kit; lightweight and very responsive, even with
several IDEs and VMs running.  It's a little noisier due to the heat
being produced (the fan kicks in a lot) but I can live with that.
Comes with a 256Mb FireGL card - no complaints here.
