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.
