Ooh, my machine is SO much faster than yours... Oh, wait, that might be a bit of a problem...

That is often the case, the developers and support get high end machines and the users get stuck on low-end stuff.

The worst is when the developers use their development machine (fastest money can buy/the company can afford, to keep the compile times as short as possible) for testing. The software runs fine on the dev kit, but crawls like man who has been in the desert with no water for a week on the users' machines.

We always kept a PC with the minimum spec around for testing.
