What Macs did Steve Jobs Own?

Title says all. But I really wonder if he had the fastest mac or a mac that suited his needs.

In his book there was a nice picture of him in his home office, he had a 30" cinema display if I remember correctly. Other than that I really do not know. Would be interesting to know though.

Ahh here it is, you can see a Mac Pro beside his legs.

Notice the keyboard on the desk: it's the old white-key-on-clear-plastic model from the G5 days.

I wonder if he switched to mostly using an iPad during his final year.

That keyboard was still shipping with Intel macs for months.

I wonder how it made him feel if/when his computers gave him issues. Maybe he went to work and tracked down the people responsible and admonished them.

Steve's computer photo

That looks exactly like my PowerPC G5 I'm currently using until the 27" iMac is available next month.
