    I do not know if this the right place to put this poll. But if it is not, please relocate it to another part of the forum.

    I am interested to know : How many Apple Mac computers do you have at home ?

    My family and I, we have 2 : 1 MacBook (my wife) and 1 iMac (mine).

    We have 6 in the house (recently had 7). In use: my new (refurb) iMac, my iBook, my son's iMac. Sometimes used: my old iMac, which is the only one which works with my old scanner. No longer used: my ancient beloved Duo, and my even more beloved Pismo. Just got rid of: an ancient Performa.

    If you count Newtons...

    A couple of years ago I had 15-16 Macs plus 6 Newtons at home.

    Now I have 11 (including 4 Newtons).

    Um, let's see: there is my iMac & PowerBook (see sig) + my old G4 Cube, my girlfriends 12" iBook G4 plus a couple older machines I got for free for my collection: a orange clamshell 300 mhz G3 iBook, a 450 mhz G4 graphite Tower, a 300 mhz G3 b/w Tower, which all still work, and 2 broken G3 iMacs which will be aquariums in the future, whenever I have time, so probably, never.

    That sums up to 9.

    Depends on the meaning of "home" as I have graduated college and moved out:

    My dad has kicking around (off the top of my head)
    1 Powerbook 170
    -- 1 intermediate Powerbook I can't remember --
    1 Powerbook G3
    1 Powerbook G4
    1 Macbook Air

    My sister and mom have:
    1 5G iPod each
    ---
    Presently, I live with my girlfriend.

    We have:
    1 Macbook Core Duo each
    1 1G iPod Nano for her
    1 4G iPod Classic for me

    Some explanations

    What I mean by "home : A place where you and/or your family lives, cook and sleep (and more :)). If you work at home, then it is still home. If you spend most of your time at your office desk outside of your home, then it is a work place (even if you eat and sleep there :rolleyes:).

    iPhone and iPod Touch could be seen as a Mac computer (especially when it integrates a OS). But they are not (at least for the sake of this thread). A iPhone is a mobile phone and iPod Touch a portable music player (of course those 2 devices can do more).

    By Mac computers, I mean : MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini, and all the oldies of the past.

    It fluctuates quite a bit as I buy and sell like a crazy man.

    I said 3 in the poll because I'm only including the ones that are still supported according to Mactracker.
    http://mactracker.dreamhosters.com/

    Coincidently these three are the only ones i still use: Power Mac, iMac, and iBook. I'll be upgrading by October, approximately.

    TiBook G4:
    1 GHZ, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HD, Mac OS X Tiger

    iMac G3:
    333 MHZ, 64 MB RAM, 6 GB HD, Mac OS 9.2.2

    iMac G5:
    2.1 GHZ, 1.5 GB RAM, 500 GB HD, Mac OS X Tiger

    MacBook Pro:
    2.4 GHZ, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB HD, Mac OS X Leopard

    Mac Clone:
    Overclocked 467 MHZ PowerPC, 192 MB RAM, 8 GB HD, Mac OS 7.6

    The TiBook is used for documents on the couch, the iMac G3 is used for classic Mac OS games, the iMac G5 is used for storing and editing music and videos, the MacBook Pro is for gaming, internet browsing, and basically everything, and the Mac Clone is just there for backing up the iMac G3, and has a bunch of really old games on it.

    Even though the Mac Clone's specs look better then the iMac G3, it is a lot slower then it because the PowerPC chip isn't a true G3. Plus, the processor is having troubles with heat since it's been overclocked up to 667 MHZ from about 2000 to about 2004 then the computer started smoking so I downclocked it to 467 MHZ. The original speed was 210 MHZ.
