comment Why don't all companies buy developers the best hardware?
You're not asking the right question. There are limitless things a business can spend money on. The decision process isn't "Will buying new computers help?", it's "Would spending $100k on hardware help more than spending $100k on X?" Where X could be furniture, office space, hiring, raises, IT etc... Having a better parking space can save you 10mins a day as well.

IT here on loan from Serverfault. 10mins is inexcusable, but unfortunately common. When I start at a new shop I spend the first few weeks turning off all the crap that someone thought would be a good idea to run on startup. Antispyware scan -> Antivirus scan -> 100s of nested GPOs. My new Win 7 desktops boot so fast I had to tune the switches because they were booting faster than the NICs could auto-negotiate. Hell I can reimage a station in less than 10minutes.

comment Software Engineer VS “Harder” Jobs
Don't argue. Just agree. "Yeah it's waaayyy easy, and you should see what they pay me! I don't know why you would drive a truck for a living?"
