I have 19 desktops and 2 laptops. No servers. Just Linux and
Windows desktop environment. I bought a bunch of stuff from the scrap yard at e-Scrap price. $0.25/pound and frankenstiened them together to make some pretty good stuff. I started with 39 computers and parted out a bunch. I hit up some computer thrift stores for parts. Mostly hard drives because I they were institutional and business machines with hard drives pulled. All and all I'm into the lot of this stuff for about $500 for everying less the laptops that I paid way to much for I bought those new. Once I figured out how easy computers were to work on I'm just going to build all of my own now.

I only use about three systems on a daily basis. I really enjoy troubleshooting hardware for the problem solving aspect of it.

Also on a happy note. Happy 10th Ozzu.

It was from some gaming rig build site. It also had liquid cooling and some SSDs. It was quite silly.


Was it maybe alienware? We had a custom build from them about 4 or 5 years ago and the total (with taxes and a $100 backpack for it) came to right at $2K. The kid loved it, but it was over priced if you ask even him.

We have 4 laptops and a desktop

If you talk about connected to my network

2 laptops
1 iPod
1 Galaxy tablet
2 Galaxy S2 phones
1 printer
1 Samsung Smart TV
1 Kindle Fire
1 Wii
2 Samsung Smart Blu-Ray players

Everything wireless except one of the Blu-Ray players. Needless to say I recently had to upgrade my router. If I had it my way and the budget to do so, there would be a lot more.

8 servers
4 desktops
6 laptops
1 netbook
1 Sun Ultra (am I dating myself?)
1 SAN

I am in the process of convincing my wife to allow me, and work to send me a p6 frame running AIX 7. I told her I would reduce the server count to 2. :) We're getting rid of our p6's in favor of p7 frames.

I should be able to carve it out into 10 or 12 LPARs.
