I would LOVE to have an LCII again (that was my first mac) - I had used the family Macintosh before and loved that chunky keyboard, but the LCII was all mine. Had me a colour monitor and 40MB Hard disk with I think 4MB Ram!

One day I'd like to have another in working condition, just for the memories of those years.


/sigh smiles to herself of happy and sad times past.....

Kinda modern, but any of the aluminum Mac Pros. I would love to sit there and drool at the minute details in those things.

Sure pick up an old power mac g5 for a good price on eBay! Great fun toys and they'll add an amazing degree of style to your collection

Acutally no, but my friend has one. Doesn't have the box, but has the audio tapes, stickers, and manuals for it. Cool little toy, but I don't have any special draw to it. I had a 512k and still have a Plus, so thats still some pretty early stuff. Since I posted that, I attained the G5 Quad and the dual 1.42 G4

Nice those are a museum gem, 128k won't run virtually anything though. And the 400k drive is a pain, coupled with the awful MFS file system...
I have the 512Ke, 512k with the plus rom basically. Runs system 6!

I wish I had the quad. I have one nearly as good though, a late 2005 2.0 dual core power mac g5. Bottleneck on that is easily the rubbish 6600le. Wish cards like the 7800 would sell for sensible prices :/

I was able to get a X1900 for mine pretty cheap as I recall. Over time I was able to get it to 12GB of RAM and 1.5TB of HDD space. It's been a really reliable box for the last 3 years, so it remains my primary system.

I sold my G5 when I moved here because of space issues and I have to admit I miss the thing.

Think there'll always be a part of me that wants a bright purple or orange G3 iBook. Those eBay auctions are tempting.

i still have the two imacs that i bought in 2002. a g3 and a g4. but i've added to my fold. in the last 5 months i've added two g4 1.25ghz imacs, a 2.13ghz macbook and a 1.33ghz ibook. i can honestly say that i've got all the macs i've ever truly wanted. in the last couple of years i've gotten rid of a 466mhz clamshell and two dual usb ibooks. i just didn't use them anymore. it's amazing just how cheap these things are these days.

I keep lusting over the colourful G3 iBooks, but every time I look at them on eBay, I start wondering what the hell would I do with one Have been trying to declutter my home, so can't bring myself to get one just to look at it.

I've wanted to get my hands on an iMac G4 and a 15" PowerBook G4. No particular reason, just like the look of them. A local electronics shop had a PowerBook G4 15" for $150, maxed out. If I had the money I would've bought it.
