    The iMac is my backup computer kept in Maine for vacation times like this.

    The iBook goes almost whever I go, even to class.

    The Cube stays at home, resting from the heavy usage I put AltiVec through. It's my main computer.

    Currently two, it was three until early this year (sold one to help get the Harley). I have the 800MHz TiBook and my own creation (game pc). The TiBook gets used each and every day, where the game pc can sit unused (and powered off) for weeks on end...

    I have the two listed in my profile plus one older dell laptop (thats my dads) I don't buy any, but I am the owner of the older iMac. I am the main user of both the Macs though.

    1. 48K sinclair spectrum + old school 80s tape recorder built like a tank and loads of games (currently in the loft)

    2. Atari STE with 2.5Mb, Stereo Master Audio Cart and loads of games (boxed up in a cupboard)

    3. Powermac G3 Desktop, 300Mhz, 192Mb RAM, 6mb VRAM, 6Gb & 60Gb HDs, an external Yamaha CDRW, Audiomedia III card and a nice speedy cable connection.

    I wish I had a shiney new G4 to go with that lot but sadly i'm stuck in the 90's technology wise till at least spring of next year for financial reasons. Plus, imagine the macs we'll see by March '03.

    Between my wife and I, six, I think. However, I've got enough bits and pieces lying around that I could probably put another couple together if I had processors (for various reasons I have three perfectly good Athlon motherboards sitting in a closet).

    No, make that seven - there's an ancient IBM of some sort at the back of a cupboard. No, eight, my wife may have a really really old Compaq luggable in her parents' attic.

    The "real" machines are:

    My dual 1GHz PowerMac G4 -

    My pride and joy. Bought this February on the condition that I don't buy another computer of any description until late 2003 at earliest. I figure Apple should have something really nice out by then.

    My wife's 667MHz PowerBook Ti -

    My wife's pride and joy. I bought it for her as a surprise in January. It took over my mind and made me buy a PowerMac the next month. I got her it because she likes to surf in the livingroom and was getting weary of...

    Our Toshiba Satellite (400MHz Celeron) -

    Replaced an even older laptop stolen in a burglary. Runs W2K. Takes over ten minutes to boot. Now exists primarily to look bulky and cheap next to the PowerBook.

    My big, noisy Athlon box -

    My main machine before I got the PowerMac. Final config was an XP 1800 with a gig of memory and a GeForce 3 video card, all in a huge Lian-Li aluminum case. Makes more noise than your typical jet airliner due to four case fans and an 80mm CPU fan. Overheats. Used to get upgraded on a monthly basis, prompting Terminal Upgrade Fatigue and the purchase of the PowerMac.

    My wife's 500MHz PIII machine -

    Replaced a 200MHz Pentium machine (inherited from me) that got stolen in a burglary. Only ever switched on if she wants to use PCAnywhere to connect to her desktop at work.

    My 500MHz K6-2 machine -

    Originally built as a cheap firewall, these days it runs essential stuff like DHCP, DNS and mail as well as anything else I'm playing with, like Apache and databases. Currently runs Debian with a 2.4 kernel.

    That's too bad. Although, look at it on the bright side. What can a quick and precise criminal do with a slow and buggy peecee? :rolleyes:

    That's a horse load of computers you got there. What comes after the PowerMac and who's gonna be jealous first? :p
