What are your current computer's specs?

Tonight I purchased a new computer to replace my slowly dying 9 year old desktop and I find myself curious to see what the rest of you are using to get to the BBS.

My current (old) PC:

P4 2.4 GHz processor
1.8 GB PC 2700 DDR Ram
150 GB hard drive
256 meg ATI Radeon AGP graphics card
52x CDRW drive
28x CD-rom drive

My new PC:

I7 2.0 GHz processor
6 GB DDR3 Ram
750 GB hard drive
Blue-ray player and super-multi-DVD burner
2 USB 2.0 ports
2 USB 3.0 ports
HDMI port
17.3" 1600x900 HD display

As this is my first laptop, I was also wondering:

Should I buy a travel case for it?
Is there anything I should be leery of/careful with?
As it is a desktop replacement, should I look into getting a docking station for it? If so, how much do these run?
Should I get a cooling pad for it?

Also, what type of PCs/Macs do you currently use and what are the specs?
