I currently own two and will probably be getting a third here shortly. I love my Powerbook so much and it basically convinced me to buy a PowerMac. I absolutely love both of my machines, each serves it's purpose quite well and I'm very happy I made the switch.

Let's see, I use the iMac and the PB everyday, Mini's been donated to Mom. I also have a G4 PM under the desk (linux project) and a 1st Gen G4 PB. These are the working machines, also have a Mac Plus, IIci, and a Power Computing clone- these have been retired to the garage, waiting for a revival. Next purchase, G5 Quad- slated for Feb. next year.

I only have one mac that is technically all mine, my 12" PowerBook Rev D. We have two other iMacs and a PowerMac at my parents house, and I have used all of those machines, but they are family computers.

Shouldn't the poll choices include either 1 and 2 and not 1-2? Most people have one or more, the question becomes, does the person only have one or two?

I think that would be a better polling option.

For me personally 2 ibooks, in the house it jumps to an imac g3 and emac. Include the almost fiancée plus our kids, add a g5 iMac and mac mini. One big happy family ! :D

iMac for hardcore posting and iBook for posting on the road.

Is there a better possible set up? Rhetorical question. Only mad people may answer rhetorical questions.



Ahem. Yes, a Power Mac and PowerBook could potentially be better...

I have 23 Macs, iBook G4 1Ghz, 2 PowerMac G4 400 Mhz, iMac grape 333, original bondi iMac, my compact Macs: Mac SE, Mac Plus, Mac 512k, and 2 Mac Classics, then I have a bunch of older Macs that are just part of my collection, I don't use them. And I have an Apple IIE. I know, its sad, but who cares?

I answered 3 that are "mine" which are the ones in my sig. If I count the wife and kids then it would be 6 Macs (and yeah I paid for them all - so it depends on the definition of "do you have")

Two macs here: iMac (Rev B) and 15" PB (Rev E). I think that I'll be adding a Power Mac and ACD to the stable..... I'm waiting for the new Nikon D200 to arrive, am eager to see how Aperture works in real life, and then will probably go ahead and get the PM for digital imaging while I continue to use the iMac for email, web surfing, forums, etc. The PB is great for using around the house and outside on the deck as well as for travel. The iMac was my first venture into the World of Apple and Mac and now I'm hooked!

Also have several Windoze machines: 1 elderly WIN 95 laptop (no longer used, just need to clear some image files from it); 1 not-quite-as-elderly WIN 98SE desktop (still works but I don't use. Again, I need to clear some files out of it before discarding); 1 WIN 98SE laptop of the same vintage (on loan to a friend); 1 WIN XP Pro desktop; 1 WIN XP Pro laptop; 1 XP Home desktop (was my late mother's; now it's about to be given to a friend). The goal is to clear the files out of those old machines and get rid of them altogether, maybe keep one WIN XP Pro machine around for those rare times when I might need to do something in Windoze.

i don't have enough. :(

I have an 8500 collecting dust under my desk, along with a couple of external HD's and external CD-R's. Make me an offer that's worth the effort of packing & shipping them (less if you come to NJ to pick it up!).

I'll even toss in a genuine 1995 vintage Apple 1705 Multiple Scan monitor. It still displays images...sorta: the RGB guns just went out of allignment this past weekend. :(

The Apple ][ isn't a mac :p

I only counted 3 macs in the poll. Also have some old mac in a box with somewhere between 512k and 2MB of RAM. As well as dad's working iMac G4 at work.

PowerMac G4 400-something MHz.

Almost exclusively used by my mother. Also used for folding (slooooooowly) and data storage (but not alot, since it's only a 80GB drive).
Bought it used off an online action.

PowerBook G4 12" 1.33GHz

Currently not used, since the boot volume is broken and I haven't tried to salvage the data on it yet. It's been turned off for a while now.
Have seen much use. Bought it new from the online Apple Store.

I've got two – a Rev A Dual 2GHz G5/1.5GB RAM/160GB Hard Drive/Bluetooth Power Mac, plus a 12" 500MHz G3/384MB RAM/15GB Hard Drive iBook for when I'm out and about, or lolling on the sofa. :)

currently, just the ibook in my sig.

But I have owned:
imac DV SE 400 mhz
ibook 12" 600 mhz
ibook 14" 900 mhz
powerbook 12" 1 Ghz
powermac g5 1.8 Ghz

And adding my immediate family:
LC III 25 Mhz
powermac G3 266 Mhz
emac 1 Ghz
imac G4 700 Mhz
ibook 14" 1.33 Ghz

I upgrade often, but the only time I've had more than one computer for more than a day or two was the past 3 months, when i had this ibook and the G5 (which I just sold). The way I see it, the most I'm ever going to use at one time is one desktop and one laptop, and for a "consumer" level user like me, even that is pushing it. So why not sell the old systems while they're still worth something?
