I'm going to be collecting some more Macs for my own small mac museum. The room I'm going to display them in is lit by fluorescent lights. I'm wondering if these lights will cause the Macs to yellow even faster.


This is what I have so far in case you're wondering.
Mac Plus
Performa 600
Performa 5260
Beige G3
B&W G3
iMac G3 with working iSub

I dont remember, but I know that any kind of glass cleaner will yellow the case.

i know that a combination of heat and UV will make them yellow (more-so heat then anything else)

here is a article on case yellowing

if that was the case my Beige G3 AIO would be yellow cause it was from a school and they use florescent lights, but dont have any case yellowing
