I been looking for a new computer system and was wondering what everyone was using. I'm looking for something that I can use for a business computer utilizing different software apps and possibly to run some websites here and there.

I know some of you work from home and have some pretty crazy setups, so let's see them and elaborate a little on what your using and for what.

I'm currently on an HP i7 laptop, fully stock setup. I love it. Nothing has problems running EXCEPT when I'm editing big video files in Sony Vegas Pro.

I am also interested in seeing other video editor's setups. I assume it would be all macs?

Home-built desktop, NZXT phantom case w/ more fans than I can count, Nvidia GTX570 + 9800GT, 8 TB of storage, bluray burner/reader/etc., 16 GB ram, 2x ASUS LED LCD 23" monitors, Mionix Naos 5000 mouse.

Macbook Pro 13"

Cheap Ikea desks + chair (gotta save somewhere so I can keep pouring money into cars/gadgets...)

Forget the model of the speakers, but they're Creative Audio branded. They're really nice, and look awesome.

Plus, it's all networked to my TV+Boxee and serves as a media server for my collection of movies/tv shows/etc.

Legit, I really need to switch to a desktop setup, I just don't have the funds with the whole school thing...Although I did just buy a 42 inch plasma for my dorm room...but that was necessary.
