I'm curious as to what system people are using these days. I know everyone isn't very tech savvy so write whatever you want! Tell everyone about your pride and joy, your baby, the computer!

Here are my specs:
MODEL: HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC 15.6"
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (Service Pack 1)
PROCESSOR: AMD A8-3500M APU
GRAPHICS: Radeon HD 6620G 1.5 GHz
MEMORY: 8GB RAM
HARD DRIVE: 640GB HDD
OPTICAL DRIVE: DVD+RW/CD+RW
OTHER FEATURES: Beats Audio, HP TrueVision HD webcam, digital media card reader, and fingerprint reader
I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

Seriously, spend money on the cheapest pre-built desktop PC you can find and it'll be so much better than what you currently have.

It's actually the other way around.
Everything feels (and is) way and way faster on an SSD, than on an HDD.
People tend to call it 'bad', just because of its price, which is the only downside.

Mmm. We had a discussion about the two in class a few weeks back. A few of the guys were saying that they'd be more reliable than a hard disk drive since they're not magnetic and don't have as many moving parts, decreasing the likeliness of them failing. But then, by the books, my lecturer was saying that solid state drives are technically inferior, in terms of read/write speed anyway I think. But then, everything has its advantages and disadvantages I guess. I have yet to see a SSD in person, though.

I think this is a good article of the comparison between the two. Currently the only real disadvantage that SSD has over HDD is cost per storage space (basically, cost).
