PowerMac G5, 1st gen - 2.0Ghz DP
C2D 24" iMac (work)

I hate you guys for being like 'Oh I have only a few but here it is' then you list like 50 Macs....haha.

I have a MacBook CE 2.0GHz, and an iPod Touch 1G 8GB.

Thats it

But I'm only 15 so I guess I have an excuse.

That's a Lear/Siegler ADM-3 data terminal, circa 1977 ish (I don't remember exactly). I'm not even sure it could do 19200 baud, I think max was 9600. (see my earlier post).

I have a small collection, albeit too big to post

Go to web.me.com/macabbott
I think I'm at 263.

Wow, you are trying to cover every exact model eh?

I'm only collecting what I like as the more "interesting" macs, so I'm skipping lots of the performa/quadra/etc generation stuff...

I must say that is quite a collection. I read up on what you did with the iMacs for the daycares. I agree that they are the perfect computers for early childhood kids to grow on. When the local school here made the switch from iMac G3's to newer Dell computers most of the iMacs where auctioned off or thrown away. I got one of them, but my Mom (who is an early childhood teacher) as well as a 5th grade teacher saved most of them from the computer lab and used them as simple educational computers. Now my Mom's kids still play on them with old educational games for OS9, they really are great for that use.

Great job on the collections guys, keep them coming.

Blimey, and I thought my collection was big! Look at that, nearly one of every model ever made. You've even got a IIfx (care to part with the ROM from it? )

I've got a Power Mac 6500/250 (with the optional zip drive ), an iPod Nano 3G, and a MacBook 13" (Mid 2007). I'm about to invest in either an iPod touch or iPhone (not sure which yet), a Macintosh SE, a Power Mac G4 Quicksilver, and a Power Macintosh 7300/200.
