Let me see:
1. Workstation I use now - Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6500 2.93 GHz, 4GB RAM. I have different OSes on this one (Win, Mac, Linux). 2. Retro machine 1 - Intel Pentium I 133 Mhz, 16MB RAM. Windows 95. 3. Retro machine 2 - AMD Duron 650 Mhz, 256MB RAM. Different OSes. 4. Retro machine 3 - AMD Duron 700 Mhz, 768MB RAM. Also different. Currently has some NT5 and Windows 2000 RTM. 5. Some laptop with broken screen - Intel Celeron 2.10 GHz, 256MB RAM. Windows XP and Nexus Project. 6. Some motherboard without a case - Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.50 GHz, NO RAM. Windows Vista. 7. Shared workstation (like a media center) - Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.50 GHz, 2GB RAM. Windows 7. 8. Some other laptop - Intel Celeron M 380 1.60 GHz, 512MB RAM. Windows Longhorn 3718 (still working; have it like for 2 years). 9. Server - Intel Atom N270 1.60 GHz, 1GB RAM. Windows Server 2003.
That's all I have at the moment. Everything is working, but planning to get a new workstation maybe after a year.

So... I skip retro-computers.
1. Pentium III based computer without case, to quickly test hardware. Substantially is an old HP or at least its guts 2. Cyrix 486 SX25 to run very ancient software (at the moment it has only MS-DOS 6.00 installed) 3. Compaq LTE 5400 a Pentium MMX based computer with a couple of HD, perfect to run WfW 3.11 4. A couple of Mystic (Apple G4) to run System 9 5. A Toshiba M60 heavy and slow computer, it runs several Linux distro (mostly Fedora in the last months) 6. The HP 8710w the heavy duty (read work) computer 7. A netbook from Samsung (don'r remember the code), Windows 7 Starter ed. 8. The mainboard of a Compaq notebook without screen (Xubuntu)
Obviously it run them one at time... I should search for a recent Apple, maybe a G5 to run OS-X.

Here is a new list, which is rapidly getting smaller.
Dell Poweredge 1750. Dual 2.4 GHz Xeons, 1 gig ram. I haven't touched it in god knows how long but it's the 1st server I ever got.
Dell Poweredge 1850. Dual 2.8 GHz 64-bit Xeons, 4 gigs ram, dual 74 gig 15k U320 hard drives. Was minecraft server and now is just a play around as it's the only server with EM64T I own.
Dell Poweredge 2650. Dual 3.2 GHz Xeons, 2 gigs ram, dual 36 gig 15k U320 hard drives. This is a new project as I've found instructions on how to get this thing to quiet down, something I'll try some day when I get some money, oh, and it was also shown in the new Mission Impossible.
Intel SRSH4. Quad 2.5 GHz Xeons, 6 gigs ram, 5x 74 gig 10k U320 hard drives, nVidia GeForce FX5500, dual DVD burners, firewire, Sound Blaster Audigy Value ($5 clearance item). This one here is my video editing system as it does a great job at processor rendering, and it has storage. The downside is noise, but meh, you get used to it after a while.
Dell XPS410. 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo, 3 gigs ram, 750 GB 7.2k hard drive, PNY XLR8 9800+, WinTV HVR-1800 TV tuner, Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS, Dual DVD burners. This here is my main desktop, as it has power (lacks in processing sometimes) but the graphics are great for the games I play, it's dead silent and is white, not beige or black.
Dell Latitude D820. 2 GHz Core 2 Duo Mobile (T7200), 4 gigs ram, 160 GB 5.4k drive, Intel GMA950 (YUCK!),DVD DL\Lightscribe burner (hack job, but works ), Wireless B\G (typical), 3G CDMA Modem, Xubuntu 11.10 and Windows XP Pro SP3. This here is my laptop, and it's been beat darn near to death and still runs. I do want a newer one eventually but finding one with the WWAN and Wifi is a pain, found out that a Thinkpad T61p supports those and it supports 800 FSB C2D processors.
Power Mac G5 2.0 DP. Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5, 2 gigs ram, 80 gig 7.2k hard drive, Radeon 9600 Pro (stock), Plextor PXA-712 DVD Burner, Airport Extreme, 17" Studio Display (older ADC model), OS 10.5.8. This here is my mac if I need a mac as it's the newest mac I own.
eMac G4/1 GHz. 1 GHz PowerPC G4, 1 gig ram, 60 gig hard drive, whatever the graphics are on it, Combo drive, OS 10.5.8. I used this every day for a while with a USB Wireless N dongle, but the USB adapter died and I stopped using it in favor of my then newly aquired laptop. I haven't touched it in so long I should probably get rid of it.
iMac G3/400. 400 MHz PowerPC G3, 512 MB ram, 20 gig hard drive, stock (ATI?) graphics, CD-ROM, OS 10.2.8. This is so damn slow I don't really use it, and as I haven't touched it in over a year it probably can go also.
ATT PC-6300. 8 MHz Intel(and AMD) 8086 with Intel 8087 Math co-processor, 640 KB ram, Dual 360 KB floppies, stock video, MS-DOS 3.30 off a floppy. I have 2 of these I got for free, with 2 monitors and 2 keyboards. Only one monitor works but the rest works, and they are awesome. Currently trying to get a hard drive in at least one, as floppies are a pain.
Compaq Prolinea 4/33. 33 MHz i486 DX, 8 MB ram (won't post with any more), 1.5 GB Maxtor hard drive, Tseng ET4000 graphics, Sound Blaster AWE32, EN2000 network adapter, MS-DOS 6.22/Windows 3.1. Currently working at getting OS/2 on this.
Mactel XB 203/MT. 200 MHz PowerPC 603e, 32 MB ram, 20 gig hard drive, TwinTurbo 128 video card, USB 1.1, Firewire, 10/100 ethernet, Mac OS 9.1. This is my favorite mac ever, even though it's a clone. It has 6 PCI slots, 2 hard drive bays, SCSI and IDE onboard, and is easy to work on. It runs great for the age and the motherboard is marked "Copyright 1996 Apple Computer Inc".
Supermac C500e\180. 180 MHz PowerPC 603e, 16 MB ram, 1.2 GB hard drive, ATI XClaim VR128, Mac OS 8.6. This here was used forever as my media center because of the TV tuner, then I got one for my desktop and have since used this less and less. Mac OS 8 looks funny when connected to a 1600x1200 monitor lol.
Performa 6115 CD. err...I don't know the specs of this. I haven't really used this one as I need an adapter for a VGA monitor (DB15 to VGA?).
Oh, and lets not forget the server. 2.33 GHz C2D, 2 gigs ram, 2x 120 GB hard drives, 1x 160 GB and 1x 300 GB. GeForce 6800 GS, Dual gigabit ethernet, Windows XP Pro SP3. This is a Minecraft/file server. I would run Server 2003 except I don't have a retail key (only the Dell OEM disk which won't work on an HP, although I'm sure I can make it work), and 2008+Minecraft=fail.

I have quite a large number of systems, but they're all compressed within the same room, so it doesn't take up so much space as all that.
Over the years, I have collected many interesting systems, including (since September 2010) a heavily upgraded IBM PC (yes, the original IBM PC), though I had to replace the power supply, since the old one stopped working after attempting to power it on (there was a pop and a slight smokey smell; apparently, one of the capacitors blew.
I also have other such vintage systems, including an Atari 2600/VCS (Video Computer System; one of the first video game consoles, released in around 1977 or 1978), several Commodore 64 units, and our old Apple IIc (still have to find the power supply, or perhaps a new one, and a new monitor to use it with), among other such systems.
