14. Precisely why I bought a new laptop for myself...
as a backup for my work one (which I disabled for a few hours a few weeks ago, after spilling water on it...), since I telecommute most of the time. My home computer is like 10 times slower for work than either of the laptops, so I feel a lot better knowing that I have a backup now that's better than what it's backing up.

Anyway, good luck to you... it sucks realizing how tied one can be to a computer sometimes :)
