3 desktops and 2 laptops.

Although 2 of the desktops I run VMware on and have multiple OS instances (Windows and Linux) on them.

Just 1, a desktop. I feel so left behind the times! Although, lately I have been considering another machine just to accomodate my music....125GB and counting.

Whoops... I forgot, we also have a MAC, so that makes 8.

Maybe I'll turn the MAC and see what's up with it.

Better still...get an internal drive (lots on sale) and put it in an enclosure (for under $20).

Just my trusty laptop (which is starting to become not so trusty).

My roommate has a desktop, two laptops and a server.

Two at the moment. As many as five at a time in the past.

No, it's a cheapie refurbished iBook for the kids to abuse, so they'll stay off of my PowerBook G4. :D

I'm waiting on the second generation of Intel Mac notebooks, since the first generation has a nasty side effect of scalding laps when it's used in them for extended periods of time.

Two Macs. I have an old G3 that's just used for checking email and sometimes web browsing, and I recently purchased one of the new Intel Macs. I don't own a PC and probably never will. I am pretty close to purchasing a laptop to take with me on the road, but I haven't bought it yet.

I actually bought a MacBook which suffered from the Random Shutdown Syndrome which Apple only recently acknowledged. Sent it in...came back fixed. No problem since.

BTW that next gen of notebooks just came out.

3 desk tops
1 lap top sometimes (TC's work one)

After Christmas there will be one more desk top but won't be hooked up to the internet. Getting my old one fixed just for TG's PC games.
