    It depends on what you count as computers.

    Smartphones are practically computers, and tablets and hybrids (such as Surface Pro) rival the computing power of many desktops.

    The lines have blurred in the past few years.

    If you are just counting desktops (the most traditional of computers), I have two--one running Windows 10 and another one running Linux Mint. I also have a Samsung netbook that runs Linux.

    My wife has two laptops, and my eight-year-old son has a desktop that runs Windows 10.

    Good points ,
    MS Surface pro is a PC just in a hybrid form factor by every definition incliuding running x 86 code. Outside of a conventional PC form factor you can add in PC ,Android and Apple tablets ,modern smartphones ,moderm game consoles including the X box one running Windows 10 now and the PS4 running 2 modified 4 core AMD x86 APUs and ARM CPU inside and the PS3 and orig X box , or maybe X86 or Android wearables, maybe smart watches ?

    Maybe smart TV s and media players ,networked media players and networkwed AVR's ( probably a big stretch)

    Our vehicles are dependent on central processing units and aux moduals to run the petrol engines or elecric traction motors and operate the ABS brakes and sometimes stability control , driver assists , collision avoidance and comuterized infotainment ,climate and control systems .

    So going all in and not counting the media players or AVR or TV's I'm at 5 PC's in the traditional sense
    ( four desktops and an Elite book ) a PS3 , 2 computerized motor vehicles , 3 Smartphones so maybe 10 all in all not counting all the separate computerized moduales in the vehicles outside or the main engine contol /powertrain moduales or the digital home security /camera system . ofc the heat light and power utility owns the utility smart meters .

    How did we survive with vacuume tubes , maybe 3 - 5 TV channels OTA TV and maybe 25 on cable .
    Analog 525 ( usually 350 +line ) B/W TV sometimes clear sometimes snowy sometimes nothing and 19-21-24" CRT B/W and dodgy ( Never The Same Color Twice ) color TV !

    , radio phonographs ,Telex ,telegraph,typewriters , Ditto copiers ,telefax ,photocopiers ,print media ,books and and Rotary dial phones and elecric and wind up watches and clocks and electro mechanical devices ,appliances ,HVAC , vacuume tube radios,phonos and TV's ,punchcards ,10 keys , typewritwers and vehicles that could be repaired !

    Two laptops and two desktop PC's running Windows 10. One laptop for me and one for my wife. Also a desktop PC for me for gaming and a spare desktop PC used as a Media PC. I also have two Raspberry Pi computers, one running Raspbian and the other Openelect. Ones for tinkering with electronics, the other a Media Center. I'm retired and have simple needs.

    What's a computer? Surely tablets and smartphones should be counted. TVs, cars, coffee makers; we are swimming in computers. And they all have problems. Just this morning my stupid coffee maker decided not to turn itself on as scheduled, very annoying.
