Erm....7? Summer before college I worked and saved to buy a desktop PC, used that for years then sold it, then my grandpa and some friends and relatives just gave me a whole bunch of crappy older computers one by one that I would use, fix up, then sell for $50 until I had $200 to buy an old laptop from a friend (it was fine, it just had viruses so I reinstalled everything), then I sold that for only $25 less than what I paid for it 2 years earlier, and got my current laptop. My original desktop and my current laptop are the only computers that I bought new.

All still in use except the Dell laptop which has a busted fan.

6 or 7.
Define 'computer'. I've had a few internal and external harddrive replacements, a few tower rebuilds, a few monitor replacements, a few laptops, a fair few parts replacements and OS upgrades, etc.

The good old standard HP desktop (1 GB RAM / nVIDIA 6600GT) and more recently, a nice HP laptop (512 MB RAM / shitty mobile GFX card) for school since Xmas.

Four. When I first registered, I had an HP desktop from 1999. I got a Toshiba laptop for school that I started using over the desktop, so I ended up giving the desktop to my brother. Then, after my mom had bugged my enough about how much better Macs were over PCs, I got a Powerbook in 2005. I held on to the Toshiba for awhile, but eventually sold that to my brother. And I bought a new Macbook earlier this year. I didn't need it, the Powerbook is still in great shape and it is the one I carry around to class, while the Macbook pretty much stays on my desk.

i think four, technically. the first two were my parents' computers. the second two were mine, though.

i got an hp in 2001 and then upgraded to a mac in 2005.

1, although I did add a new hard drive a few years ago so it could handle the large WAV. files I have.

Plus the one at work, that I'm currently on.
