Do you have too many "gadgets"?

I've been feeling a little guilty lately for wanting a Chromebook when I've already got a desktop, netbook, and an "emergency" laptop. And then there's the other gadgets I have! Kindle, iPod touch, iPhone, Nintendo DS...it's almost gotten to the point where I feel like I have too many gadgets.

I don't, yet, but I do enjoy gadgets! I had a smartphone, but unfortunately it didn't like me. I'm not really sure what went wrong with it, but it decided to quit working.

Actually I've found it hard to find gadgets I want lately. The Chromebook is my first this year. I already have:
- big HP laptop (3 years old)
- HTC Desire smartphone (1 year old, still going strong)
- HTPC (built it myself about 4 years ago, recent minor upgrade to handle HD)

There isn't a lot else I need. I use the laptop at home and on the road, and the Chromebook will take its place on the road but not at home (yet*). I might replace the laptop with a desktop machine in due course.

*I need extended displays, Skype and GotoMeeting to work before I can use a ChromeBook for all of my work. These are all limitations that could be solved in time.

Mc, I do not think there is any such thing as too many gadgets! I like to think positively about things like this. Think about it this way, you have hands on experience with enough gadgets to call yourself "Cutting Edge", you should be happy!

Is it even possible to have too many gadgets?

Seriously though the whole convergence thing (i.e., one or two gadgets does it all) never really seemed to work for me. Ergo, multiple gadgets. At least that's my excuse...
