There are two Escalades, the Tahoe/Suburban one and the Avalanch one. The Avalanche is the same frame and body just with the rear chopped off. All the GMT 800/900 share the same basic design, the frame is three sections, the front for 2wd/4x4, then the middle depending on length and the read depending on SUV or truck.

I call mine a desktop, if I was a 1337 h4XX0r I'd call it a workstation.

Though it's just commodity desktop class hardware, I tend to refer to my system as a 'Workstation'. Not because of any "l33t h4XX0r" pretence, but simply because that is the role it performs (i.e. it's not doing the job of a 'Server', so it's a Workstation)

Of course, then you have the hardware classes of 'Laptop', 'Desktop', 'Workstation', which is harder to tie down. Like most folks whose system still lives in a rectangular box, mine is actually under the desk, so Desktop really isn't an accurate description anyway. Very few system units sit underneath the monitor on the desktop any more. But then, most people don't put a laptop on their lap either.

I believe I have a Desktop. It's an intel core i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz

However, back in the heydays of SUN workstations with RISC CPUs, I did always wanted one but it was out of my reach, money wise.
