I have been trying to find the information about the processor number that is used on people who are above 500 posts. I know it stands for Motorola processors used on Macs, but what is the number of posts needed for the next processor number, a list would be nice.
I just hit 68000, a nice round number;)

Yeah, but it fails to say how many posts you need to be a PPC970 :p

Because they think that a 6502 is a Mac processor :p , when Macs didn't exist at the end of the 1970s -- it's a Apple ][ processor. ;)

Yes, Macmaniac...

Apple really did build a computer without a GUI, schocking as the though of a CLI is.

Of course we'd probably kill the poor guy if we talk about the world before MTV and cable television.

Ok I'm sorry I was born in 86', when I said I wanted Mac processor names, I did not mean Just the Macintosh line, I meant from the Apple I onward, I know that there were Apple computers before the Macintosh line, I was just quickly asking a question without thinking, thanks for correcting me:D
