6 or more

I dont want to vote, show me the results!
I was just curious how many computers you have in your homes. I currently have 5. But when my daughter is home it bumps up to 6 and if you count the PSP and blackberry that has web access it goes up to 8. Of course, I mean PCs that are actually being used and not pieces of junk laying around for parts. (I include Mac's as PCs for this poll, so please don't start up that old debate).

In total, I'd say around 7 built mid/full towers, also about 4-6 more not yet built pcs for storage, servers, networking, etc.

At home, I have my new pc, my old pc in the corner, did have a laptop but I lent it to my sister, and my flat mate has a laptop. Also one of my old pc's is still at my mum's place on solitaire duty.

At work I have a P4 2.8 for my main dev machine, another pc running host for my fpga board, and a funky texas instruments OMAP 2420 with an 'Imagination Technologies PowerVR MBX 3D Graphics Accelerator' for also for driver development (Shameless Plug for my company since I'm using their pc to write this!! tis a nifty lil' chip!). Our new one is even better, how would you like a mobile phone, with 3d chip, with a unified vertex/pixel shader engine capable of all the nifty shader effects, defered shading, paralax mapping etc, how about generating geometry on the fly in the shader, simply from throwing it a texture, uber sweet!! I think only the most recent geforce's (series 7) can do that!

Out of all of them, my PC is the best, with a 3Ghz processor, 512mb RAM, 120Gb HDD and a 256mb ATI Radeon X800.

I would think so, but there are Mac people out there that do not think so.

Well a Mac is a computer and it is personal (yours), so it should be the same.

The only difference between the two is the software and some bits of hardware, thats it.

I have seven Macs and one PC in operation. I also have two older Macs waiting for my brother when he gets out of the NAVY then they are his.
