OSNews, Generic OSes At the end of the year, mainly to shamelessly fill slow news around the holidays, OSNews usually asks the readers to share with all the other readers something about their computer setup. Since OSNews can be quite diverse when it comes to computing environments, these threads can often be quite interesting. This year, please chime in with the setup you use to read OSNews - computer, OS, software and maybe even provide screenshots or photos of your proud workspace. Has it changed a lot this year? Maybe switched browser, maybe switched OS even? Let everybody know!

Laptop: HP EliteBook 8530w (I don't believe in netbooks)
Intel CoreDuo T9400 @ 2.53 GHz
4 GiB RAM
250 GB Hitachi HDD @ 7200 rpm; getting full
nVidia Quadro FX 770M
DVD-writer (didn't see the need for Blue-Ray)
64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate; did an upgrade from Vista; it used to be pretty unstable until HP released the Win 7 drivers.
I use it for work, browsing and the occasional Monkey Island episode.
Total Commander, Slick Edit 2008, various versions of Visual Studio, Wireshark + a lot of crap from work.
Thinking of turning on hard disk encryption ;)

Occasionally I find myself without the laptop and needing to do some browsing/email/IM; fortunately, I always carry my HTC Touch Pro 2 with me.
