I own a self-built gaming PC and a 2015 Retina MacBook Pro. I got the gaming PC for, well, gaming! However two years later and 95% of my game time is now just Hearthstone, so I'm in the process of selling it and downsizing from a desk full of tech to a more simple setup of a laptop and headphone system. I chose a Mac because they're simply the laptops I enjoy using most.
Brands? Apple and N/A, I guess.
Intel Core i5-4670 (3.4Ghz)
4GB RAM (one 4GB module died and I haven't needed to replace it)
Nvidia GTX 660
180GB SSD + 1TB HDD
Intel Core i5-5287U (2.9Ghz)
Preferred OS? OS X, easily.
Tweaks? None really, my daily usage tasks has gotten pretty pedestrian in recent years, and I've only had the Mac for a two days so haven't had an opportunity to get it properly set up exactly how I'd like yet.

Intel Core i7-4510U (2.6Ghz)
Nvidia GTX 850m 4GB DDR
1TB HDD + 2TB External HDD
Minuit changes in system settings for maximum performance and GUI changes to showcase my gaming community xD

I have two that I use regularly;
Apple (13" Macbook Air)
1.6Ghz Dual Core intel i5
I use this daily, mostly for development work.
HP (Pavilion 11 x2)
64Gb fPCIe-based flash memory
1.6Ghz Intel Celeron Processor
I use this for networking when playing with Cisco lab, or when working in a cabinet as it's light and portable.
