    When anyone says they get an error for anything in general, I tell them to try it on another computer.

    However, so many respond saying that's the only computer they have. How many computers do you have access to in your house?

    Between laptops and desktops for my family, I'm in the 6 to 8 range in my house. I've got 3 personally: 1 laptop for travel, 1 mac for working outside (has an awesome battery) and 1 desktop for regular work.

    How many computers do you guys have access to?

    A desktop and a laptop at the moment. Thinking about getting a new desktop soon and I'll just put my current one in the corner running bots probably.

    1 desktop and that is it. I do however have access to 3 more desktops, enough components to build 5 additional desktops, ~4 servers. Also have access to around 12 24"+ screens.

    3 - a macbook pro that I use 90% of the time, along with parallels for running windows tasks if need be. A windows desktop with plenty of power that runs all the time to run bots, download torrents and act as a media server for the rest of the house. And an older mac desktop (g5) for...well, I don't really know whats its for, I should probably just unplug it.

    I have a few other old desktops laying around that I sometimes plugin and fire up for a minute or two until I remember why they were retired in the first place, and my wife has a laptop, but I don't touch that one unless it's to fix whatever she screwed up.

    Can't keep count, damn things breed like rabbits between the laptops, tablets and desktops. I got two more on the way with five that I use regularly including a 13 year old box running Ubuntu.
