Weekend Open Forum: How many computers do you own?



Even though I'm in IT, I only have 1 computer at home for the whole family.


TS Special Forces
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.


I have

Games PC (2500k, Z68, 2 x 4600GTX etc)
Media PC (Win Media Edition 2005)
Netbook (XP)
Server (Linux)
(plus media NAS drives)

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...

Gateway NV52 everyday laptop

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.

I have 4 desktops (2 Dell and 2 HP) and 3 laptops (2 HP and one Lenovo ThinkPad). 1 is for home use, one is for work, one is for secret reasons, and the last is my home server. 1 laptop is my main one, one is for home use and the ThinkPad is for business.
