He probably only had the latest stuff. Steve was never sentimental. I seem to recall reading that when he returned to Apple back in '96/'97 he ordered them to "get rid of all this ****" (non-current products) from Apple's HQ.

My guess is that at any time, he had whatever model that he wanted to use. If he wanted an Air, that's what he used. It's not as if he couldn't just ring IT to get him whatever he wanted right away.

And even if he didn't, he could have just bought it. He had the money after all. I'm sure he had a bunch of computers that he collected over the years.

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.
