Two towers, main pc in my media room (the only hard-wired system) and the other is connected to the large screen LCD tv in the living room using two wireless adapters for dual band router. Two laptops, one stays in the kitchen the other I use as my mobile. Will be making the final upgrades to my main computer and will use the spare parts to build a tower for the LCD tv in the bedroom.
I currently own 20 - but only have 10 actually in use. At my peak I had 21 machines - that was 5 years ago this April. I had to leave 8 of those 21 machines when we moved because the wife said I was out of control and needed to downsize. I'm including my laptops in all of this, of course.
Are we talking about working comps? I've got 7 working computers in the house, 5 of which are mine. I've probably got enough parts to slap another two together though.....
-Amd 550 BE gaming rig- gaming/programming on 4 screens
-Core 2 Quad 8400 spare gaming rig- my brother uses this guy for gaming
-Alienware m11x that dell just repaired (bad hinges= new lcd)- school/gaming/programming
-Core 2 duo 6650 spare- I use this for fixing other comps because it always works.
-Pentium 4 3.0Ghz server- used for backups and streaming tv shows around the house
I own 9 mid tower PCs. They all work but I only have two plugged in at any one time. I rotate through them periodically to keep them updated. My wife has one mid tower which is also hooked up. The first two are old Dells. The rest I built myself.
Four. A laptop for roaming. A mac mini for most web-based useage. An older XP Pro tower to run stuff that doesn't run on any newer OS (smoothly anyway). And a slightly older Linux box running a file storage/backup/media server duty. Also, one more laptop for the kids homework, and another desktop for the wife's work. So for the household, six, but only four that I use myself.
Never really thought of this! I have my main tower, a smaller one that I rarely use downstairs. A touch PC, a Mac Air, and an "Entertainment" laptop, along with a Netbook. Have a Motorola XOOM. Does that one count? And I have three or four in the garage, but I don't have them fired up anymore.
Let me think.. mmm... 10.
1) Pentium MMX, 200MHz (Firewall/router)
2) AMD K6-II ~380some MHZ
3) 1GHz HP machine, I've forgotten which kind of processor it has, it also is currently using my PCI Voodoo 3 video card.
4) Athlon XP 2600+ desktop
5) Second Athlon XP 2600+ Desktop
6) Athlon XP 2000+ Server
7) Athlon XP 1800+ machine
8) e-machines with an 850 MHz celeron-D
9) Compaq laptop with a turion 64 and 1GB of ram.
10) And last but not least, my "beastly" desktop. AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition, GeForce GT 440, dual widescreen LCDs, yada yada, everything every other nerd here has. And a couple gigs of storage.
I have my main workstation (appropriately named TS-One) running on a Core i7 870. I have a MacBook Pro that is a few years old but still my go-to laptop and a third machine (home server) managing lighting, music and some other stuff.
Embarrassingly, even my wife is sporting a newer laptop than me these days (which I bought for her birthday). Other PCs that I don't use have been given away over the years, most recently a Dell XPS laptop to my dad and Sony 10" ultraportable to my mother in law.
I have 6 working machines in my house but only 4 of them are set up. There are 2 laptops 2 towers that aren't set up but still work well, a Mac Mini that I found in the garbage, and my lovely desktop, my pride and joy(even though I know it's not the greatest).
Phenom 2 X3 720 be @ 3.9ghz
Zalman 9700 LED
MSI 880G motherboard
Gigabyte GTX 460 1GB OC'd to 920/1940/1950
23" 1080p ViewSonic
700 Watt PSU
150GB WD Raptor
And a basic DVDRW drive
Order of CPU's I've owned is:
Via motherboard with integrated 800mhz CPU
Athlon XP, don't remember the model
754 Sempron 2800+
AM2 Athlon X2 4200+
AM2 Athlon X2 BE (5000+?)
And my Current 720 BE
Those are only my desktops, I haven't the faintest clue what the laptops or the mac mini have, just that they're intel.
1x desktop - main use.
1x laptop - not really used much after finishing university. Sometimes use for android hacking, sometimes with HDMI to TV.
1x semi-disassembled server - old dell P4 3.0GHz. Used at one stage as a file server at uni.
