How many computers have you got?

Hello guys,

For me I have 2. My PC which has Windows 7 HP and Windows XP Professional its mostly used for interent and games etc.

Also I have a laptop with Vista which is used for backup, so I can still check my email if my main PC has problems or busy doing something.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Had 5 up until a few weeks ago. Broke my own rule and tried to update my BIOS. DISASTER.

Saved the memory, CPU, hard drives, optical drives and cables. Rest was scrapped out.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and numerous virtual machines

I personally have three on my desk all controlled by Mouse without borders. I use one of my machines to chat with my wife on and off during the day since I have a bad heart she keeps an eye on me. My other two machines I run email and weather information on one and play music on the other whilst fooling around with virtual machines of various OS, surf the web, edit photos, music files and so on. We have 2 computers that are DVR's and we watch HD terrestrial TV, Netflix, Hulu, DVD's and other material streamed on the TV. My wife has her own machine (Lord help me if it does not work) and a netbook we use when we are out of town or when I am really ill and have to sit on the couch. I also have 2 machines in a state of suspended animation. One is an old PIII 800 Mhz Gateway with XP pro and the other is newer, a 1.9GHZ Athlon. Going to make one of the two when I get around to it. I have a legal copy of most Windows OS from 3.11 onwards. The exception is Windows ME which I never used.
Computers are a big part of my life, I like fooling around with them and I always have a back up it it all goes sour.

Windows i7 920

Windows 8 Pro x64

Due to functionality, I do consider the following to be computers, especially the second one.

Samsung Infuse SGH-I997 (fully rooted):
  • CyanogenMod 10 / Android 4.1.1 (Linux kernel version 2.6.35)
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 1.2 GHz ARMv7l CPU (single-core)
  • 16 GB eMMC storage memory

ASUS Transformer Prime (TF-201):
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 1.4 GHz nVidia Tegra 3 (quad-core, plus 1 power saving core)
  • CyanogenMod 10 / Android 4.1.1 (Linux kernel version 3.1.10)
  • 32 GB eMMC storage memory

I also have a minimal install of Ubuntu that I can access through a terminal emulator app on the Infuse and the Transformer. I do at some point plan on updating the Linux kernel on my phone.

As for Windows-based machines...

  • ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 (X58 chipset, LGA 1366)
  • 12 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
  • Intel Core i7 920 (overclocked to ~3.6 GHz)

  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 1 GB GDDR3
  • 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA II HDD

I've included a picture of the Compaq in the early stages of building my grid charger.

Recently bought a Fujitsu LifeBook to replace the Compaq as I can't get any kind of Wireless to work with Win 98SE. Don't really use it for anything at the moment so I didn't include it in my count.

Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit

My working machines are a Win7 Lenovo Notebook and an XP Acer (aka POS) desktop. These are the only two I counted in the survey.

I still have the remains of a cannibalized Asus netbook that I'm going to take to CA to dispose of the next time I go there since I paid an $8 recycling fee when I bought the notebook there (yeah, I know, I'm a cheap old bi...broad; ornery, too).

Post edit: I forgot to mention I still have my old Commodore C64c system that was still working when I got my first PC.

I'm currently modding a case (Antec Two Hundred) for my next desktop. I've added some cable management holes, changed up some fan mountings to add filters and seal air leaks, and sealed up some other air leaks (even if I can't achieve positive air pressure, sealing air leaks will at least reduce the amount of dust that gets past the filters). All that's left to do is to seal the holes left from punching the case to make the straps that secure the narrow end of PCI slot covers, after which I can paint the darn thing, then install the PSU and the PSU cables I custom made, a 3.5" hot swap bay (it already has a 2.5" swap bay), and an el cheapo optical drive I got to help me make the PSU cables and to use to install Win7 (I'll replace it with a BD burner once everything is up and running). It will have an SSD boot drive and room for 6 data HDDs (I'll have only two data drives at first and add more as I need them). I'll also add an internal card reader once the system is up and running. I'll buy the CPU and cooler, RAM, and MOBO for the initial build sometime after the first of the year.

I also have a JetBook Lite e-book reader which is a computer of sorts.
