Help Settle a Debate at My House

I've posted a poll at the top of my blog. Damon and I are having an ongoing debate on the virtues of having multiple laptops, but we can't seem to agree so I thought I'd ask the internets. How many of you have more than one computer/laptop in your home? Please answer in the poll. Thanks!

We have a laptop and a desktop computer. The Laptop is mine and the desktop computer is for John and Gavin to share. With how much time I spend online John knows better then to make us share.

We have three desktops and a laptop. This is for two adults, a 6yo and a 3yo.

We have a laptop and a desktop. But I would like one more laptop.

For my current living situation - me (in college), my brother (in high school), and my parents - there are 2 desktop computers, and 2 laptops (sometimes 3 since my dad brings one from work too).

When I live with my boyfriend, there will be 2 laptops.

I remember sharing the one desktop computer with my brother when I was younger - and it wasn't always pretty.

We were a one PC family until about three weeks ago and I couldn't take our PC anymore. It's been giving us some problems so we bought a laptop. It's MINE. I don't share very well except to watch movies in bed. Last night I caught Tony looking at horrible things after I fell asleep in bed. Can you imagine? eBay Motors and Harleys. I had expressly forbidden both of those things on MY laptop. I told him I'd rather he look at naked women. Ha!

He doesn't really use the internet much here at home since he has it at work, but we're still thinking of getting him his own. When I was growing up we had one TV in the house, but all four of us each had our own computers. I think they're really personal.

We have a computer and a laptop. The laptop is mainly used if one of us is on the home computer and the other wants to browse, but we really only use it for Mike when he goes on deployments.

We have 2 desktops. Although one isn't hooked up currently, it is for the kids to play games on we just need to find a desk for it. I would love to have a laptop but it may be a while.

Currently have just a desktop, but I am lusting after a notebook (actually, a Macbook) for Christmas as my husband spends all bloodly weekend with streaming-video NHL games on the desktop and works on his work notebook. I need one of my own if I'm to check my email on the weekend ...

We are a house with me, a mom working on her master's degree, a husband who is a computer geek, has his own business and works a full-time job, and a son and daughter who are both in college. We have 3 desktops and 2 laptops. One desktop and 1 notebook are at college with our children but they come home to visit during vacations. All the computers we have are used constantly. ;>)

Thanks everyone! It was so fun reading your comments. Heather, you crack me up!

Adding in late, we have two non-working desktops, and one laptop (mine for "business" ;) ) Husband has one for work that he often brings home, and the kids are now having to "earn" computer time with four extraordinarily nice, sticker meriting overtures before I let 'em back on mine! ;) (From now on, 4 really nice moments = 15 minutes of computer time. OR they can save 5 and get an hour of TV OR 8 for a dollar, but money seems low on the totem pole for them right now!) Fun poll!

We have two laptops and three desktops. It's a bit excessive, I know. lol
