Desktop. Laptop for emergencies and when I travel.

One desktop + one laptop (but I haven't touched my laptop for some time: hope it still works...)

I have3 fully functioning PCs, but I only work on one of them at a time. One of them is my main PC for work purposes and the other two are backup. One of them is currently acting as a radio so that I can listen to the BBC. I also have one laptop for when I'm travelling or have to work away from home. My house was burgled at the end of last year and they stole my two previous laptops, both of which were in working order, but left the old desktops behind.

My desktop is the one thet I use the most. I use my laptop when I'm away or to listen to music or whenever I need more screens. I even use my mobile to chek emails and documents. I also use the mobile to tell clients that I'm away and that will send a proper reply as soon as I get to my office in a few hours.

... depending on how "work" is defined in this context.
I only translate on my laptop - I have a Freelance version of Trados, so I can only use it on this one laptop, but I mostly use my phone to answer e-mails that require word answers and not also attachments or anything similar. So I guess if work is only understood in the context of translating, then one; if we're also talking about everything else that comes with the job, then two!
