Default What system do you own the most units of?

This may be a silly question, but out of all your game systems (PC not included), which one do you own the most working units of (with controllers and hookups and everything)?

My answer:
SEGA Genesis

I have four units of the system (three Model 1s, one Model 2 which is technically my Grandma's). Each one works perfectly (except for the Model 2 which makes weird buzzing noises every time I pop a cleaned cartridge into it), has all their hookups intact, and has 2 controllers each. One of the Model 1s does not have a "PRODUCED BY OR UNDER LICENSE FROM SEGA ENTERPRISES LTD." screen at startup, indicating that it's one of the very first Genesis units ever made. I have roughly 15 or 20 games for the Genesis, and growing...

From pre-PC days I still own a C64, but I have no intention ever getting any gaming-platform, nor "alternative platforms" (like Macintosh).

I own two ZX Spectrum+ personal computers: one fully operational and one completely dismantled that acts as a parts source. But I'd be happier if they were 48s with their awesome rubber keys.

Any of them, since I have one of each LOL. Not many people have several units of the same system.

I have an Atari 2600 and a Sega Master System. Of course I don't keep the original packaging of either, and I think at least one of the controllers of the SMS was destroyed (by my sister). But in compensation Odin bestowed upon me the Sega Control Stick and the Light Phaser:

The blasted cat chewed the stick's cable in two but I was able to repair it back then.

I never use them, they're gathering dust in my junk room, it's more convenient to use emulators in my PC, even with the systems and games that I own.

I own only one version of each console I ever had... For the good reason that I don't smoke and like to be very careful with what I own. Never needed to replace anything.

However, I have a Playstation 1 and an Xbox... And my GF does too. So I guess those two would be the winner in this strange contest.
