How many computers have you owned while an interferencer?

How many computers have you gone through since you joined this community? I've been through:

A crappy old HP in 2000-2001.

A crappy gateway from 2001-2003.

A refurbished compaq laptop from 2003-2005.

A less crappy HP from 2005-2007, which nonetheless decided to have a faulty motheboard.

Now I'm on another laptop, an hp this time, in hopes of having mobility during grad school.

A lot of machines have seen me through this site.

I personally don't own any computer, but my mom has had the same 2 computers the whole time...I think (and I just use one of hers)

I'm on the same one I bought in 2003... a Dell Dimension desktop. Upgraded to a flat screen monitor last year.

hmm. I remember sharing a very old and crappy computer with my then-roommate back in 2000 when I joined. Then I was living in Switzerland and there was another crappy slow computer that we all shared. I had the honor of accessing this site using DrTeeth's computer (hey, for being old, it's not half bad!) Then about a billion or so net cafe comps all over Europe whilst backpacking... Then a friend loaned me his laptop while I was in the States for a few months before Peace Corps. In Africa, I used the PC office comps to get online when I could. Now, I have an IBM Thinkpad through my job and that's what I use at home. Whew. Man, thinking about those old computers and the horrible dial-up connections brings back memories. lol.

I'm on my second right now, though I just got a third. I currently alternate between the two as needs dictate.

I'm going to have to think about this. Wow, if not, then I guess i've done a pretty good job of living in the internet age without spending any of my own money, huh?

Only one, which I've had since 2002. The one I had before that lasted me through all four years of college and the first semester of grad school. I'm ready for a new one, but it's not financially possible for me right now.

I also have an old laptop, but I use that only to do work and don't even have it set up to be internet capable.
