I have quite a few computers:

- My laptop - Celeron M 1.4GHz, 768mb RAM, 40gb hd, running Windows XP Home
- My work laptop - Pentium M 1.8GHz, 1gb RAM, 60gb hd, running Windows XP Pro
- Devel/file server - AMD Athlon 2500+ 1.8GHz, 512mb ram, 80gb hd, running Linux From Scratch
- Celeron 400, 192mb RAM, 4gb hard drive, running Xubuntu 7.10
- Pentium-MMX 200, 64mb RAM, 2gb hard drive, running Windows Me

That's all the working hardware I currently have. I lack the storage and the funds to really hoard a lot of computer crap. The Celeron and the Pentium will be used to test a server automation framework I've been working on.

How about everyone else?

As of right now I have an Core Duo 2.8G SLI rig that I run games on (XP)

A P3-3.2 running Linux (Ubuntu) that I have for programming and fiddling with computers.

I have a laptop running Ubuntu that I take to uni for lecture notes and using at uni. All uni machines run Vista, so to avoid using that I take my lappy. An asus.

I have an old p-120 running DOS that I use to play UFO: Enemy Unknown on.

and another laptop running WinXP that I just don't use any more since getting the newer laptop. Just sold this one, but it is still officially mine till I get the money and make delivery on Sunday.
