    This poor guy has only one Lappi right now, a Lenovo G430, 3GB RAM, Intel C2D T6400-2Ghz, 2MB cache happily running Mint 9 with triple boot Windows 7 (a price to pay for having a windoz-head gf) and Salix 13.1 .

    I, myself, have two--one desktop and one laptop. Both for different uses and are used pretty equally, so don't even think it's wrong/no point in owning 2 computers!

    I have 3 at the moment. And to think that less than 2 years ago I had none.

    My Desktop is an eMachine ET1161-07; 2.1 Ghz dual core CPU, 3 Gbs RAM running Vista. Which will soon be dual booting with Ubuntu 10.4.

    A Sony Vaio PCG-FXA63 laptop; 1.4 Ghz Pentium 4 CPU, 512 Mbs RAM running Xubuntu 10.10. It was dumping XP and installing Linux that made me appreciate Linux. What a difference in prefomance! It was that project that gave me a whole new hobby. Rescuing elderly computers and making them purr again. The latest venture is a:

    Compaq Presario 1255; 300 or so Mhz CPU, 90 Mbs RAM with Damn Small Linux. It is this latest effort that sent me here.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Counting my wife - at least 10 if you include our smart phones, but not including our Palm Pilots. Ok including those and my backup smart phone (Nexus One), 13...

    Let's see.

    1 Sony Vaio
    1 Toshiba Netbook
    2 Apple Mac Pro's
    1 Dell Laptop (used to have 2, but gave one to the grandson)
    1 Custom Intel workstation
    1 old Dell workstation (still works - runs Gentoo Linux)
    1 old Gateway workstation (still works - runs realtime QNX)
    1 Apple iPhone 3gs
    2 Google Nexus Ones
    2 Palm Pilot TX's

    If you add up the bits and pieces and spare parts - maybe a couple more?
    Of course this doesn't count the Linux-powered routers (2) and the Linux-powered network storage arrays (2).

    Now, someone should do a poll about how much disc space (the final frontier) we have!

    Feel free to tell us about them below.
    Hey Ozar, new model smart phones (especially Android ones) should count! Heck, I have more processing capacity, RAM, networking, and storage on my Nexus One that on my two old computers combined!
