    Well I have four different computers in my household. I've got an iMac desktop, a MacBook pro, an HP envy ultra book and a Sony Vaio laptop. What computer or computers do you own?

    I'm currently borrowing a family member's laptop because my (old) desktop computer crashed a month or two ago. Other than that my sister has a laptop and my brother has a tablet, while I'm getting a laptop for myself soon. I'm not sure about the others, but this one is an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC.

    My main box is a custom built desktop (Intel i7 970 Processor 3.20GHz, 6GB RAM, Win 7 64-bit). The notebook is an older MacBook running Mac OS X with Parallels installed so I can use both Mac and Win32 apps. I also have a Nexus Tablet and an old Netbook, but rarely use either.

    My wife is running an antique WindowsXP notebook which is going to be replaced very soon.

    I have an old I-Mac G3 that I have kept and it sits in a corner. I think the look of it is interesting but I don't have plans to use it again. Both the keyboard and mouse
    will work on the G5 Mac that I am using now. I am a Mac guy. Started with the
    Classic II. Had this G5 for a few years now. Pretty happy with it. So I have two computers,
    and both are Macs.

    I have a 7-year old system that's been used, thoroughly. I've used it for 3d graphics, animation, and programming. I know I've got my money's worth. The next computer will be a beast. I want to be the slowest component.

    I won't throw this one away, though. I always keep the previous computer I had for emergencies. It always comes in handy to have that backup system.

    I have four laptops, two smartphones, and a tablet in my household to use. I usually use on my Dell Inspiron laptop as my main computer for business and personal use. My Android phone I use when I am traveling because of it being so portable.

    I have two desktops and two laptop computers, and they are all apple brand. I mostly use my laptops for school and traveling and I think they run really well.

    I only have one computer and that is a desktop. Its kinda old already and I am planning to upgrade into the latest versions of computers or plan to buy a new one. I am still thinking of that but if I will buy a new PC, it will cost me a lot since I wanted to have a very good performing PC. I might rather build my own PC so in that case, I can be able to choose the best components of my PC. Is that a good idea?

    I have two computers I use right now, one a gaming computer and another one downstairs to do work on/mess up. I love using the gaming computer, though, as it is so good! :).

    I currently own two computers. The one that I'm using right now is a desktop that I built four months ago and cost $1200. It has some pretty higher end hardware, and can take any game that I throw at it. (Crysis 3 runs wonderfully) My other computer is a laptop that I got for Christmas in '09. It was my primary computer up until January.

    I really like my set up, I have an ibuypower desktop and right next to it I've got my HP laptop. I frequently use it to play games (on the desktop) while watching movies or TV on the laptop.

    Right now, I have two laptops. They are both made by Lenovo. One of them is a Thinkpad, while the other is an Ideapad. I prefer the Thinkpad more than the Ideapad, because it runs much more smoothly. I also have an Apple iPad that I bring on-the-go. It's portable and fun!

    We have two desktop computers. Over the years I have had a couple laptops but I just have no luck with them, they tend to break on me. I have a Dell desktop upstairs, and there is an old HP desktop downstairs.

    We have a desktop that no one uses anymore and two laptops that we use everyday. One is a HP and the other is a Gateway. The Gateway is my personal computer and anyone who wants to use it have to have my permission to do so.

    Two Toshiba Satellite laptops, one is 6 years old and the another one I bought it 2 months ago because the old one is already acting up a little. I also have an old desktop PC, but never use i anymore, it's too old and slow... I have it since 2006!!!!

    I mostly use my laptop but I have three computers if you count a tablet. All of them are Acer's. I don't know why but ever since I got my Acer tablet I feel in love with this company and purchase pretty much everything from them now. They create great quality electronics at an affordable price.

    I built my desktop about a year ago to replace my dying laptop. I'm running an i5 overclocked to 4.2 GHz and a Radeon 7850 (no OC yet) to satisfy my gaming drive.
