Hi fellow Statalisters -

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions or guidelines for what
would be the ideal type of machine to build for intensive STATA-use.

In particular, if you wanted to be able to run saturated regression
models on large (several gigabyte) data sets in STATA, what would the
ideal set up be? This is a computer that will be used exclusively for
data-intensive tasks and mostly with STATA.

The only requirement is that it has to be built on a windows x86
operating system. What type of hardware makes for the speediest STATA
experience: harddrive type, RAM type, number of processors, etc. ?

Thanks in advance,
Dana
