My primary computer is my laptop, which has one 128 GB SSD and one 1 TB hard drive. I voted for "4 or 5" partitions, but I think my vote might actually skew the results a little since if I was running Windows, which I assume most of the other voters are, I would have voted for "2 or 3" partitions. I now have 4 partitions on my SSD, the first is /boot, the second is swap, the third is /, and the fourth is /home. This is a fairly normal partition layout for a Linux system (although more and more often people are dropping the separate /boot partition). I have no partitions on my hard disk; the whole disk is formatted as BTRFS. However in the spirit of this poll I think that counts as my fifth partition.
I have games installed on three partitions. Xonotic is installed on my root partition along with my operating system and most of the other programs I have installed, including some large proprietary software like MATLAB. Steam, Team Fortress II, Half-Life II, and Minecraft are installed in my home folder. My remaining Steam games, such as Portal, are installed on my larger hard disk because I don't play them as often and space on my SSD is limited. If I had a larger SSD, all of my games would be installed on it rather than split like they are now. I don't typically spend much time gaming - and therefore don't have a huge number of games - so even a 256 GB SSD would give me enough space to have everything installed on it, leaving my hard drive exclusively for my documents, pictures, videos, and other data.

In my laptop I have:
2 Toshiba SSD's, 64GB, in RAID0, one partition
1TB Hitachi HDD, three partitions (600GB general, 200GB photos, 131GB experimentation).
In my desktop:
2 x 640GB Samsung HDD's
2 x 1TB Western Digital HDD's
All split into way too many partitions, unfortunately.

Internal hard drive is something like 750 GB.
1 SWAP partition of 4 GB
1 System partition formatted in EXT4 that takes up the rest of the space
I also have an external hard drive that's 2 TB in size, and it's all one EXT4 partition. I use it as my "Storage" drive.

My main desktop isn't that crazy. It has a 512GB SSD and a 1TB HDD for storage.
I just gave away an assorted mix of 7 HDDs and SSDs to free up some space in the place.
That being said, the network itself in my house has a fair bit more storage on it, but I have been paring it down compared to previous years.

1 x 240Gb SSD - OS, select multiplayer games, applications
1 x 750Gb 5400rpm HDD - downloads, singleplayer games and the odd MP game I don't play very often
1 x 1Tb External - music library, films, TV and a few singeplayer games.
I need to get some more storage because not only am I starting to run out, but the 750gb will be turning 7 years old this year and is starting to get a bit temperamental

I own an SSD but it's just sat in a box somewhere, I still prefer normal hard disk drives for everyday use.
I simply own an iMac which has a 500GB drive and a Windows 8 laptop which has a 1TB drive.
I don't bother with external drives as I don't keep anything that can't be retrieved online somewhere really.
