I think there are enough 3D printers, laser cutters, soldering irons, and test equipment that I wouldn't hesitate to call it a legitimate hacker space. 

It all depends on what you're doing, of course, but my main computer is a core2 Duo 1.6 GHz. Other than skeinforge I'm happy with the performance. Even with skeinforge, it takes ages to print so it isn't that bad. 

Thanks,
