I know the one. Wasn't the portrait display rather rare?

Quad G5?

There are plenty of them on ebay.. or if you prefer a mac dealer, try Powermaxx.com They sell plenty of G5 Quads.. just be sure you get the SINGLE PUMP as this is the most reliable over the dual pump.

Black MacBook. Something about that thing just looked so cool. Hope we see anodized aluminum MacBooks in the future.

I'd love a G4 cube (that doesn't have cracks in the plastic). Those things were beautiful.

I'm in my early twenties, so perhaps still a child in the eyes of many Apple lifers here, but I've actually never owned a PC in my entire life. I grew up with Mac Classic, flying toasters, Escape Velocity, and Exile.

I've personally always wanted to own an iMac G4. In fact, for my first computer, I had planned to buy a used one, but ended up saving up for a PowerBook G4 (that I recently rediscovered and got back into working shape). I also really wanted a Power Mac G5 back in the day and a PMG4 MDD.

Right now, I'm tempted to pick up a Pismo, mainly to mod the hell out of it and upgrade it to no end.

iMac G4 easily. I see them on eBay quite a bit but I can't justify spending $200 on something I won't use much.

Dude, try ebay then.. Just be sure its the SINGLE pump.. I mean, not knocking the dual pump, just that it had problems where as the single pump was much more stable.

I have seen G5 Quads go for 200-350 depending on ram size, hard drive size and either having the Nvidia Geforce 6600 256MB or the Nvidia 7800GT 256MB. The best card for the G5 Quad and I have one is the Nvidia Geforce 7800GTX 512MB.

I just bought one on eBay. I was hoping for a 17" 1.25 GHz model but I bought a 15" 800 Mhz one for $69.48 after shipping (it was priced higher but they accepted my offer). It's funny how excited I am over a 2003 computer but I've always loved their look. It's gonna be a great machine to play with.

- Power Macintosh G5 Quad (Liquid Cooled)
- Macintosh Colour Classic
- Macintosh (128k, First Gen)
- Twentieth Anniversary Mac
- Any Prototype System
I am pleased to say that some of these can be considered finished. Within the last 18 months, I added the following to the collection:

- A Macintosh Colour Classic, needed major body work that has since been completed
- An iMac G3 333MHz Strawberry, while it isn't a Bondi Blue, it's in pristine condition inside and out
- A Macintosh 512Ke, the second I've acquired, and while it's not a 128k, it shares the same case and is in pristine condition inside and out
- An iBook G4 12-inch, not a G3, but in very good condition

I'd also likely strike the 17-inch iMac G4 from the list because while I still want one, I've spent some time cleaning up my 15-inch model and added a set of Apple Speakers (the clear orb style) to it.

Of course, the Tangerine iBook, Twentieth Anniversary Mac and a Prototype are still on my list. As is the Liquid Cooled G5, but for a different reason now. Since I've improved on my skills in automotive repair, changed out a couple of water pumps and some radiators on a couple of cars, I'd now like to take on the challenge of rebuilding a potentially leaky G5 cooling system.

I would be very content if I had those machines.
Four years later, and I still have none of these.
