Nowadays I'm a PC guy, never liked the Macs too much. Now they are PCs with (much) better design, and in the past... well... IMO the Amiga trounced everything else
- Spectrum 48k
- Sega Megadrive
- PC AMD 386 40Mhz (I wanted an Amiga so badly, but I couldn't trick my parents )
- PC Pentium 100 MHz + GUS
- PC Pentium II 350 MHz
- PS One
- PC Athlon 1200 MHz
- PC Pentium 4 3GHz
- PS 2
- Sony PSP
- Some laptop from work
- PC QuadCore 2,4GHz
- Amiga 1200 + Blizzard 1260 (better late than never)
- PS 3

1983 - Timex Computer 2068 (with Spectrum emulator cartridge)

1989 - Amiga 500 (with 512KB expansion)

* 1994 - Amiga CD32
* 1996 - Amiga 4000 (desktop version, Micronik towerized, Warp Engine, Retina BLT Z3, SCSI-II harddrive and x2 caddy CD-ROM) (leaked battery killed it)
* 1999 - Self-built PC (AMD K6-2 550Mhz, Matrox G400 MAX, translucid blue case, worst new aquisition EVER)
* 2000 - Apple iBook G3 12' laptop (great little machine, had a 12Kg block fall on it's LCD/keyboard while open, the LCD is shattered but the machine still works perfectly with an external display)
* 2001 - Apple PowerMac G4 Dual 867MHz, GeForce Titanium 4800 (my first really powerful computer!)
* 2004 - Apple PowerBook G4 Titanium (667MHz, DVI)
* 2008 - Apple MacPro Quad Xeon 2GHz (powerful, silent, stylish, expandable, very near perfection)

* 2009 - Spectrum +2 A (boxed from eBay in great condition)
* 2009 - Spectrum +2 B (boxed from eBay in great condition)
Yes, yes, I'm a Mac guy. The first PC I bought for my personal uses was quite a traumatic experience... I'm a software developer, and Windows (2000 at the time) was a horrible knightmare, the Matrox was great but drivers for Win2K were lousy, the soundcard uninstalled itself, etc. My Amiga 4000, wich the PC supposedly substituted, always felt superior in usability. Only in raw processing power the PC showed an enormous advantage, and so I've never really stopped using my Amiga 4000 until I got my first Mac.
MacOS X felt much more advanced than Windows, it's Unix underpinnings were great for Amiga geeks, I finally had tools to substitute ImageFX and Cinema4D (that I could actually use), and I fell in love with MacOS X (to this day). I would never lock myself inside Windows-only software development (and good thing I didn't ), and Xcode has been a great IDE to work with, in Java, C++ and ObjectiveC. On the Mac I have all the cross-platform, open-source development tools I need. I've done a few things on Visual Studio (VB and C++), a couple of proxies and a distributed 3D environment, and believe me, you feel pretty much locked in . I'm a happy camper on the Mac and Java!
Today, I'm searching for my old computers (that I always sold to fund the next one). I've just got a "new" A1200 (oh, the feeling of getting an Amiga!!) and a couple of Spectrums. If someone knows where I can get a Timex Computer 2068 (yes, the Portuguese version), I'm very interested!
These old systems will be used to build a small technology teaching center. The idea is to have kids of all ages programming on all sorts of hardware, like Spectrums, Amigas, Macs, Windows, Linux, Solaris, mobile phones, iPhones, microcontrollers, etc.
Now that Hyperion has all the rights to AmigaOS, I'm dreaming of using an Amiga machine in my embedded projects! If someone has good web links on Amiga Development, please don't be shy!

I know one thing; people have far too much money on this forum. If you totalled up all the machines bought just off people on this forum.... well I wouldn't like to guess how much was spent! A lot.

The amiga was probably the longest "serving" out of my history looking back. In terms of ownership from "new" with exceptions for my retro collection the family tree is as follows, oldest to newest:
ZX Spectrum 48k (technically my mums!)
Sega Game Gear
Sega MegaDrive/Sega MegaCD
Olivetti Pentium 75Mhz
IBM Desktop 233Mhz
AMD Athlon custom desktop 1GHz
AMD Athlon XP 2000
HP Pavilion Athlon64
Then I have a loft full of collected stuff Sega Master Systems, Commodore 128, C64, Commodore Plus/4, Neo Geo Pockets, Gameboy and GBAs, Neo Geo AES, SNESs and NESs other spectrums and playstation 1s and a 2.

I hate potatos and shirts
[poll whore mode on]
OK, where is the poll?[/poll whore mode off]
Let's see... Forgive me if my memory is not as good as my über-freaked A1200 (asterisk is systems I have today, not the same units I had back in the day):
-Atari 2600 (the only one I consider for that brand!)*
-ZX81 clone (NEZ8000, just 1kb RAM)
-Sega Master System*
-boring XT & 286
-386sx (work! not used to play games)
-486 (diddle, but gaming a bit)
-lots of Pentium machines, from MMX to P4
Now I'm on a time of the life that I grab what really makes me happy: Amiga computers! So now it's time to:
A500 (x4), two for spares...
A600 (never had one myself before, lovely WHDLoad machine!)
A1200 (x2), one vanilla, one loaded (day to day user computer)
A2000 (x2) one is my pride and joy! Other is spare parts.
A4000D (awaiting restoring, motherboard destroyed before reach my hands)
AROS "live" under XP/Amithlon dual boot P4 computer (count as Amiga?)
Some time in the future I'll grab A1k, A3k & 4kT to settle my hunger for Amiga computers. Nah!

So yeah, I guess you could say I'm a PC. I guess you can blame it on Commodore's shitty marketing.

OK, in the thought of the original post (and because I'm lazy), I'll list the systems I got to use as computers (not gaming consoles and not retro).
IBM XT (Eventually with a 386 inboard, still had the SX)
Amiga 500 (eventually got a dataflyer HD for it)
Amiga 1200 (with HD, no extra RAM or CPU accels)
(sadly) 486 (for Foxbase mostly)
IDT Winchip 180 (almost like a 200Mhz chip running at 150Mhz :-)
AMD 1.8Ghz (with 512M, eventually upgraded to NVidia and 1G)
Installed Linux on the 1.8Ghz machine, still my main machine. After all these years.
Now, I have lots of other computers/systems, but that's my progression...
(Not that it was all progress...)
The move to intel (specifically the Winchip) machine wasn't all bad. It got me work, and it's still running... Yep, it plays about 80 Arcade games in my Arcade cabinet.

Looking back on my list I forgot some things!
I re-got another A8 setup, this time an 800XL with a 1050 drive, so i can add that...
Also forgot a system I love but gets a lot of flack: the Virtual Boy~!
Teleroboxer was pretty badass you must admit
