Do you keep a backup computer ?

I received my first computer as a gift over 15 years ago, if experience has thought me anything is that keeping a spare around(with a spare hdd backup as well) is not only a good idea, but necessary.

So these days i keep at least two computers at home, a laptop and a desktop. If one fails, i can use the other and maybe fix the damaged one as well, while also retaining my data, by using 2.5 inch drives than can be swapped easily. A external 2.5 inch powered hdd case is also handy to have.

Storage wise, I always try to have multiple drives, one holding the OS and others for photos and other files. If one fails, not all my data is lost.

How many computers do you keep and why? Also, how many drives(hdd/ssd etc)?
