I know the unibody MBPs look like an oversized MacBook.

Just bought a couple of my wants in the last few weeks:

A PowerBook G4 12, a Clamshell iBook Tangerine and a Flower iMac

Would be nice to get a last edition Clamshell though.

I am quite lucky to have most of my wants, including a TAM (upgraded to a G3 500 and a spare TAM for parts) and an G4 Cube also upgraded to 1.8 G4.

I love the 20" G4 iMac. That was a high point in Apple design. I would also love to have a Cube. I would like to set it on the table next to my Mini.

Looks like you and I could have been looking at the same things on ebay! I havepicked up...

indigo clamshell and a ruby imac g3 for myself, and...

blueberry clamshell and blueberry imac DV G3 for my girlfriend!

I do fancy a tangerine ibook though. Could you let me know who you bought yours from on ebay (perhaps link to the won page?)?

I think some don't understand the concept of "No Macs they still sell".

Of course everyone wants a tricked out Mac Pro.

I agree,howevever on the point of those 'tricked out mac pro's',asan owner of one, i'd have to say that its by far not my favourite mac i own.

For me its a tool, its value for me is placed on how much work i can get done on it. My clamshell ibook or 12" powerbook by contrast are no longer particularly useful, (although i still use both of them!), but they also have something else which stops me from even getting rid of them!

I have a few of the Macs that are listed.

Maybe I should consider selling one or more.

Anyhow, if I lived in a place where I had the space, I would have every Mac, Newtons, etc., that Apple made on display.

Clamshell iBook, I'd take it in pretty much any colour.

Used one for a year when I was 11 and thought it was the most beautiful computer I'd ever seen/used. I loved that thing so much. It's the reason I eventually bought an iBook

I've always wanted the early macs that I either hated or got me into the whole 'scene'. So that would be a G3 iMac, G4 iMac, 12" iBook, maybe an eMac.

But I'd never pay through the nose for something that isn't that productive anymore.

Using your criteria excluding presently available products, I've owned at one time or another almost all of the Macs that I've wanted to own.

A noticeable exception was a G4 iMac, which I'm still tempted to pick up just because it looks cool.

Never owned an SE either, but had two Mac Plus(s).

The Original Mac was tempting but it was under spec in storage and ram.

Now I just need money to buy one

iMac G5 - The first Mac I ever loved.
Cube - It would go great above my mini.

I already own a iMac G4, and that was on the top of my list.

I may get rid of my 128k (see thread I just started) which I purchased new in 1984. Model M001. I turned it on after it was in storage for a few years and got the dreaded "sad face". Also have imagewriter, books, cords, disks, programmers switch.
