    Mine is black, which is my favorite color.  My mouse is a black Microsoft Intellipoint optical wireless mouse with click-less scroll wheel.  It also has two thumb buttons, and a good reception range.  I like to watch movies and stuff from my bed, which is about 8 feet from my receiver.  My monitor is a black Dell 1024x768 flatpanel LCD monitor, with a small set of speakers mounted underneath.  I love this because it provides a secondary volume control I can change even inside a game with no lag whatsoever :).  My black keyboard came with the computer, and is okay for everything but Frets on Fire.  Read why here: http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,64315.15.html.  My black tower is sitting on a shelf above my monitor.  I also wear black shirts, have a black IPod, and love Black Sabbath ;D.

        My Vista sticker is wearing off...
        Its silver underneath. The CoreDuo sticker is hanging in there fine...


        One of my teachers just got a new Dell OptiPlex with a ~2GHz (Somewhere around there, I dont remember the exact number) AMD X2, and 4GB of RAM from the ESD.
        Thats one fancy computer for school... from the ESD. Very fast.

            My main laptop is an off the shelf mid range (mainly black) Toshiba. It works just fine as is but i might upgrade a little later.

            I have two others (packed up at the moment) one is an absolutely knackered laptop, which was free, poor specs but works fine with Linux.

            I'm also building a desktop for free, it was a challenge from a friend. I've collected some of the stuff i need i'm just on a hunt for  working motherboard.

                Please, can we keep the replies on topic, i.e. about the colour of your computer?
                I just remembered I have two beige boxes here too, and one that's soon to be built into a wooden case.

                Will do.
                It'll be in a kind of enclosure under my desk, but also on a sort of drawer so it can slide out, otherwise the components wouldn't be accessible.
                What I'll actually do is start a work log thread so people can follow it if they want to.
