My regular laptop is an IBM T42p (StinkPad). It does pretty well - we're about to get T60's with CoreDuo's and the bad-ass graphics card as the T42/T43 have end-of-life'd.
I run XP primarily, but have played with Novell's SLED 10 on a T43. Still not quite 100% ready for prime time, but the XGL stuff is pretty bad ass. The T60 is supposed to include ThinkVantage tools for SLED as well, which should help a lot with wireless, etc.
My home has a little Compaq ProLiant with a Pentium-3 and some SCSI disk - it runs OpenSuse 10 and does all of my internet-based stuff (web server, firewall, routing, NTOP, etc).
I'm fascinated with the prospect of the "Myth" project - if anyone has successfully, recently built a system for use with KnoppMyth using HDTV equipment, I'd love to hear about it. I don't mind building equpiment at all, as I've been doing it for about 20 years now.
Quick geek trivia question - in the early 1990's, Compaq ProLiant servers with 486 processors silkscreened with a tennis racquet logo on each motheboard - what words were printed by the racquet?
