Including Laptops and Desktops, how many computers do you have?

11-03-2008, 08:35 PM
Assembled and running, or does this include current projects?

11-03-2008, 09:26 PM
Lots. Probably somewhere around 20 at this point.

11-04-2008, 12:15 AM
Running, or can be up and running in minutes....

I have 10

11-04-2008, 12:16 AM
3xNES, File Server, laptop and my wife's computer.

11-04-2008, 12:19 AM
I currently have three. Two desktops that are mine and the wife's laptop. I have 2 more but one needs a psu I think and I'm not sure why the other won't work yet.

Three: my desktop, the wife's new laptop and an ancient TI laptop running Windows 3.1. (It's so old it proudly announces on the case that it's in color.)

going to be having 2 really soon

Building one. Have two more. Laptop on the way.
That above average for the average computer user but to you guys here, its way below.

11-04-2008, 07:36 PM
Mac Mini, Laptop, Desktop, File Server, plus 4 more run, but are currently awaiting a purpose. Oh and 9 more in various stages of disrepair/disassembly.

11-04-2008, 11:15 PM
Main box, backup machine (P4), Mum's computer, Mac-In-The-Box, sometimes-working DEC dual-P2 server, firewall-in-progress (PPro, should be done tomorrow), Gateway P2-400 (presently jobless), Athlon system (1 GHz just lost its motherboard; got a few Athlon XP systems, all dysfunctional, that I can/should consolidate into one in under half an hour). I've also got another Athlon that's a hard drive short of running (is that nine?)

Eight or nine, then, four of which get used regularly.

EDIT: Oh, I didn't count my Compaq laptop (which worked until the internal power board died) or the Dell laptop I may/may not be acquiring shortly. (Don't want to jinx myself there.)

EDIT II: Speaking of Athlon systems... this is post #462! Hah!

Oh, I wonder if the PS or XBox can be considered a PC?

11-08-2008, 10:47 AM
^ I would say no to the 360. But yes to the ps3.

11-08-2008, 02:57 PM
...but at the same time, an original Xbox is basically a 733 Celeron with a GeForce3, while a PS2 is a completely different architecture.

I'd say it's all or nothing in terms of consoles.

Well I have my primary laptop and media rig which i use everyday. About 5 old school Macintosh machines that I don't ever use but would work if i set them up. Several laptops and numerous other systems that might work might not (I am guessing 4+ i could plug in and use). So yea who really knows but it sure is a lot.

+7 category for me. Can't be bothered to count them though tbh. It just changes too often it seems. :rolleyes:

One XP system, one Vista system, one system running Windows 7 beta and 4 others running various *nix distros. And one Acer Altos PIII server that's giving me some serious ****fits due to the fact that I'm having some BIOS issues that I will hopefully get resolved this weekend.

So that makes 8 physical computers. The Vista machine has VMWare on it as well, and I imagine that I probably could get three virtual machines up and running on it. Considering that it is a laptop, I'm betting that overall productivity would tank faster than the stock market on it.

Edit: In order to add more fuel to the console/PC debate, I am going to add my PS2 to the list as well, since it is running Linux.

two desktops and two lappies!

I have a PS/2. But it gives some error at startup. It's some picture that is red. I think it has one of these over it http://z.about.com/d/diyfashion/1/0/Q/6/-/-/NoSign.JPG
