Dell P4/2.8 GHz
This is my work machine. Actually, JCI's work machine that I'm using for web development.
Normally, I wouldn't have gotten an LCD monitor, but the way Dell priced it, it was only about $100 more than a 21" monitor, which would have had a similar viewing size. If we could have gotten the machine without a monitor I think I could have saved $300-400. But my dad really likes his LCD panel so he was willing for the company to spend the money for me. I think his problem with the monitor prior to his flat panel was that his office is lit by fluorescent lights.
The Windows task monitor says that this machine has two CPUs. But that's not what we ordered. And opening it up, it sure looks to me like there's only one. So I suspect Intel's "hyperthreading technology" might be very similar to two CPUs in one package. That sounds like something Intel's marketing staff would come up with.
Dell P3/1 GHz
Not much else special about this system, right now. It's basically my development machine and game machine. I'm trying to keep it as free of extraneous software as possible, to keep it stable. Yes, I know everyone complains about Win ME. But it hasn't appeared to be a problem, so far.
This is my workhorse machine, running email check program, Trillian, UPS software, Palm, etc.
Running Homeseer X-10 and webcam software. 07/MAR/04 - This machine isn't on much, anymore. Another of the hard disks has become flakey. Also, it's just very, very noisy. So now I only fire it up to run the scanner.

4 gig HD
Not currently running. Replaced the firewall with a Belkin 802.11g firewall/wireless. Tried to install Fedora Core 3, but it's not enough machine for that.
Not currently running. Need to set it up to run SETI@Home and drive X-10 software to turn a single lamp on and off. Just to be silly.
|386SX||Mostly-dead machine. Just sits onna shelf. Someday I may try to resurrect it and find something for it to do.|
