without even


Explanation:
Alone, this phrase means \"without even\"

A more colloquial way to translate the phrase is:

\"even if you don\'t own a single piece of hardware.\"

without [...] even one


Explanation:
Let us analyse the sentence in a correct way by cutting it down in sets of words that belong together as far as meaning is concerned :

"ohne zu haben" = "without having"
"nur ein Stück (Hardware)" = "even one piece of hardware"

Hence: "ohne nur ein Stück Hardware zu haben" = "without having even one piece of hardware"
