Challenger 1P Superboard II (try finding that!)
Vic 20
C 64 (eventually bodgied with old pet 1001 drives to become a BBS)
SX - 64 (to replace the C64)
Amiga 500
IBM PS2 50 (the 'joys' of a new job after the Army)
Amiga 2000 (because work sucks)
---- Moved to the US and left all computers home in Australia.
Various PC's built from scratch - mostly running linux.

Mac PowerPC - for work - Avid Media Composer.
Souped up PC - for work - because Avid decided to go PC
Mac Pro - because work decided Final Cut was a better deal than Avid

And back to a PC again, because I told work to shove it.

I have a few PC's nothing knock-over because I don't really need it - a 2.3g dual core with a terrabyte of drive space for doing video work, a couple of older ones, one for linux and tooling around and another to run a minimum spec X Amiga (used to run AMithlon, but what's the point?) - and a rebuilt Amiga 2000.

So I guess I'm Mac, PC, and Linux.

The very one! Bought in kit form and put together by my Dad and my brother as a 'father son project' - then traded to me for a squash racket

I had it around the time the TRS 80 started being sold (in fact I used a TRS 80 monitor with it). Was a cool little bit of kit for its time, you could program in machine code with its built in monitor, and 4 of its 255 (unchangeable) character set were devoted to making a lil USS enterprise

I've also ranked them in order of preference.

I'm hoping for a new PC over the coming weeks and maybe, just maybe another new Amiga 1200 before Christmas.

That's the ranking in the brackets, not the quantity. If I could afford 14 sony vaio laptops I'd be extremely happy. Even my pockets aren't that deep!!

Some interesting lists there!

Kinda knew I should have exposed myself to more as I was growing up... dammit.

At least we can all be proud of growing up with one of the best communities around at the time... the Amiga will always be a nostalgic part of my childhood.

Oh God, let me see if I can get this in the right purchase order:

Computers and Consoles:

ZX81
Vectrex
Atari 2600
Amstrad CPC 464
ZX Spectrum 48K
Amiga 500
Gameboy
SNES
PS1
333MHz PC (Running Win 95)
Nintendo 64
533MHz PC (Ran Win 98, Win 2000, then Redhat Linux)
PS2
1.6GHz PC (Dual boot Win 2000 and Debian)
Nintendo Gamecube
G4 Mac mini
GP2X
Wii
2.6GHz Core 2 Duo PC (Dual boot Win XP and Debian)
ASUS Eee 701 (Running Win XP, but I'm trying to find a Linux distro that 100% works on it and isn't Ubuntu.)
Amiga 1200 + KS3.1 + HD + Blizzard 1230 (Running OS 3.1)
Nintendo DS
PS3
1.6 GHz Atom based server. (Runs Debian and serves up files.)
Commodore 64
Amiga 600 + KS3.1 + 4GB Compact Flash card

I think that's it...

EDIT: Oh, I forgot to mention that I still own all of these apart from the ZX81, the Vectrex, and the 333MHz PC. The Spectrum only partially works, but I live in hope of fixing it.

EDIT2: Added GP2X

Whew this is going to be a toughie. Lets see..

Atari 7800
Amstrad CPC 464
Atari ST
Amiga 500
Gameboy
Megadrive
IBM 386
Amiga 500+
IBM 486
Playstation
Amiga 600
Nintendo 64
Amiga 1200


Then started moving on to bigger & better PC's... I don't have any of the atari's left, but the amstrad is in my loft and the amiga 1200 is still on my desk The 500 is snug in my cupboard. I think part of getting the 1200 was having to sell the 600, I do miss it.

Hmmm, lets keep this simple:

BBC B - repo'd by father's work
ZX81 - bit of a downgrade, that
BBC B, again - because I was an ungrateful little bugger
Acorn A3000 - since um, altered*
RiscPC - had for years, now gone to a good home
.
.
.
Original PSX - bought by wife
Various x86 Boxes - mostly uber gaming rigs
-Starting to go 'retro'-
Another RiscPC - Black 'n White model
Last full-on x86 system - almost unused
x86 A3000*
Another RiscPC - Uber, Kinetic, Viewfinder, bla, bla...
Amiga A1200 - tasteful red snakeskin 'n gold, I kid you not!
Another A1200 - Uber '060 with lots of extras, still adding to it
CD 32 - with a shed load of original games
Zonbu Mini - for playing, still not sure what
Acorn A3000 - The most upgraded A3000 ever..?
2x Oric Atmos - brand new cases, for x86 projects
Acorn A3020 - since gone to a good home
BBC Master - thanks TC!
Mac Classic SE - gutted for another x86 project
Cobalt Qube - 'sgot to be retro
HP TC 1100 - main computer these days
Yet another A3000 - as a test bed for hacks
Yet another RiscPC - another test bed for hacks
Cobalt Qube - now really seriously modified...
Dell SX280 - surprisingly good little computer...

...roughly in order, some have since moved on.
There's also a bunch of laptops 'n stuff that's not worth mentioning.
