  1. Three laptops, two desktops, one tablet.
     
  2. Even though I'm in IT, I only have 1 computer at home for the whole family.

    I find that a high percentage of the IT folks I work with do very little with computers outside of work... so I don't think it's that unusual Guest.

    Lets see...

    I have over 10 working computers in my house, running a variety of operating systems, my main box is a quad core AMD Rig...

    1. AMD Phenom x4 desktop, custom build, main box
    2. 3 AMD Athlon x2 rigs, custom builds, Web server/file storage, Linux
    3. Various Intel Macs, hate on it
    4. Various G4, G5 Macs, hate on it some more
    5. 2 AMD Laptops

    I have over 20 TB of storage between my servers and main desktop, lots more including the other rigs...
     
  8. Alienware M11x portable gaming laptop

    Asus G70 gaming laptop, CPU upgrade, ram upgrade, Bluray, GPU overclock, Bigfoot Killa, 256 SSD

    Gateway NV52 everyday laptop

    Custom I7 920, 6GB ram, two 256 SSD raid 0, 1TB WD, SLI EVGA 460 FTW, EVGA 450 FTW Phyx

    Custom Q9650, 4GB ram, 512GB Momentus XT, EVGA 295 Co-Op FTW

    Custom Q9550, 4GB ram, 150GB Rator, EVGA 260 core 216 FTW

    Custom E8400, 4GB ram, 320GB WD, EVGA 260 core 216 FTW

    The Alienware is for gaming on the go, the Asus is for gaming on my porch or for Serato when I DJ (soon going to buy a 17" Macbook Pro for Serato), the Gateway is the knock around laptop that my wife usually uses, the I7 is my main gaming machine I built, the Q9650 is my back up to my main machine that I built, the Q9550 I built for my son but I also use from time to time, the E8400 I built for my daughter that my wife uses from time to time that I also built.
