Lima's studio is a mini Mac museum. He has 35 Macs -- from the Lisa to the Cube -- on display in the front foyer. He constructed the studio's reception desk from a stack of 15 working Mac Classics.

"My clients love it," he said. "Everyone in this industry -- art directors, designers -- use Macs. They come to the studio and spend half an hour looking at my collection. They say, 'Look at this, I had one of these.'"

Lima's photography studio runs on Macs. He has nine state-of-the-art Macs -- three PowerBooks, four Power Mac G4 workstations, a couple of iMacs and an eMac, used mainly for scanning and digitally manipulating images.

A Mac controls the studio's unique lighting system -- a custom setup resembling a theater's lighting rig. Lima furnished an entertainment lounge next to the studio with a couple of plump sofas, a big-screen TV and an iMac-driven sound system.

"I am a Mac freak," Lima said. "Every time I buy a new Mac system, I just could not sell the old one, so I start collecting them. It took me five or six years, and I'm still going." (http://www.wired.com/news/mac/0,2125,56247,00.html)

Nice collection, nice display - its almost something you'd expect to see in Cupertino. I wonder if Jobs has ever stopped by...

I consider my self as a very practical person and I wouldn't bother having a collection of macs, they worth the money.

I don't think the receptionist is the same as the girl on the poster.

I think it would be more impressive if all the machines were actually on - he could have done that for the photoshoot, at least.
