    We have a desktop that makes me want to hurt someone whenever I'm forced to get on it. I've never seen anything move that slowly. Then I have my laptop, which is my baby.

    I have 2. One is a clunky Windows 98 desktop(updated to XP), the other is a new Alienware M11x, with Windows 7. My parents cheaped out with the first one and I bought the second.

    My PC is pretty outdated, and seems to be riddled with glitches, probably due to dodgy downloads.
    My laptop is pretty good, but it's been running rather slow lately. That's more or less my brother's problem now, though, as he tends to use it much more often than I do, ever since I got my netbook.

    I can't believe some people have 5-6 PC's O_O I got two laptops. A dell and Toshiba... My Dell is terrible.. mainly because it is sooooo old. My toshiba is good... I want a desktop though so I can do more things. *sigh* oh well. Can't have everything :p I just have to get all my stuff off me old lappy. Also, I have Age of Empires III downloaded on that, EVERY SINGLE ONE!!! Like all the Age of Empires III's and it was a new disc so I can't download it on my new one and it was $80 -_- So when I get my desktop I am soooo making sure it lasts YEARS so I can play heaps of games lol

    Our iMac from early 2008 (february) still manages all of my games. The ones now are even more powerful.

    I have had fewer problems with an iMac 2 bought in 1999 than any Windows machine I've ever used in two years. (all my friends' with windows plus our windows machine have all had many problems in under 2 years).

    The only problem I've had with our iMac from '08 was that somebody jammed two CDs in at the same time (no technical fault).

    Basically, non-mac machines have the most problems in my experience.

    We have 4 in the house (2 laptops, 2 desk-tops), but only because we don't get rid of the old ones. The kids use the older ones for their stuff and for watching movies on since we don't have TV.

    I counted a tablet, but I fall in the same range whether that counts or not. What do you guys think. I assume smartphones don't count, but now that I think about it, they run the same software in most cases, especially if you consider a chromebook a 'laptop.'

    So, how does this work. PC or Mac - Yes, Laptop -YEs, Chromebook/Netbook - ?, SMartphone running windows/android/iOS - ?

    Inquiring minds want to know... they need to know.
