    Re: Soooo ... how many computers do you have?

    What is a "computer"?

    • 2 chromebook devices - screen included; 0 powered
    • 2 raspberry pi devices - mainly for kodi connected to projector or monitor, but just swap a microSD to change everything. 2 powered
    • 5 normal "computers"; 5 powered
    • 2 normal laptops - screen included. 2 powered
    • 1 specialized AMD computer as a router (pfSense), but it could run Ubuntu 64-bit server. No video on it. Console only. 1 powered.


    Have a 4-port KVM connected to the main systems in the office, which goes to 1 monitor, 1 keyboard and 1 mouse. 2nd monitor is directly connected to my main desktop. Generally, use ssh to control these systems, so the KVM isn't that important post-install.

    Did not include small biz or consumer network equipment like APs, wifi-extenders, powerline-ethernet, switches or wifi-routers that aren't modified to be general use computing devices.

    Did not include the "retired" MB+CPU+RAM computers laying around with or w/o a case; 2 C2D, 1 Core-i7, 1 AMD-E350, 1 Via C7. I've been reusing the same cases since the 1990s when ATX became a standard. Why spend $1 for a new case when the old ones have more room and work perfectly fine? Planning to retire a Core-i5 desktop from 2010 as soon as I move the last VM off it. That i5 is my last power hog - over 75W. Unplugging the i7 4 months ago has saved about $8/month in electricity, which is fairly cheap here already. The remaining "desktop" CPUs are 65W or less.

    What is a computer?

    Lots of other "computing" devices here - wifi-storage, android stuff, routers running more general Linux stuff and a raspberry-pi Zero.

    Just one laptop; the Asus E203M.
    It's a cheap laptop, small, works... surprisingly well?

    My wife uses a 2015 MacBook Pro though, so there's 2 laptops in the house.

    Re: Soooo ... how many computers do you have?

    I have many, but only use two of them regularly.
    Dell XPS desktop running Ubuntu 18.04
    Asus laptop running Debian 10, Kali, and Ubuntu 18.04

    Not in use,
    Asus Netbook will be put back in service once I finish testing all of the software needed within the above Asus.
    2 RaspberryPi #2 and #3. One had Kodi, but the addon I was using stopped working as intended and the other was set up to run as a Motion server.
    I have a box full of old laptops that I recently sent of to be recycled after removing and wiping the drives.
    I also have a rack full of Cisco gear I had put together while working on Cisco certifications.

    The wife and kid have their own inventory of gaming and programming systems. The kid has been using Linux since she was four and had picked up a few programming languages before finishing elementary school, though she has no plans to get into it as a profession.

    Hey gazalis!
    Well nothing good really
    I mostly just use 3 of them, but it's kinda fun to experiment with different hardware!
