    G'day folks,
    Just a couple of questions... feel free to reply. I'm just asking out of pure interest.
    1. What was your first mac?
    2. What's the oldest computer you still have in your possession?

    My first mac was an SE, second was an LC II, and now a blueberry iBook.
    I have a LC 580 in my possession, running Mac OS 7.5. How fun!

    Should be interesting!!!
    Tim.

    Me?

    My first mac was an Apple IIgs, and it is the oldest mac I have at the moment.
    I have a pretty big collection of macs, starting with the IIgs, to the IIsi, to the Mac Classics, a few 6116CDs, a few 7100s n' 7200s, a powerbook g3 (older than wallstreet), few original iMacs, few rev. models, couple G4s, and a Powerbook G3 500 Pismo.

    The first Mac I owned was a Mac II. This ties with the oldest mac I have owned, a Mac SE (still have that one) both are the same age (1987), but the SE sure seemed older. The oldest computer I still have is a Sinclair ZX80. 1K RAM, 2K ROM. Oldest semi-useful computer I still have is a Compaq Portable II. 286, 2meg RAM, 10meg HDD. I also have an IBM XT-286, which was apparently not a big seller. It has a 286 processor (which is 16-bit) but has only 8-bit ISA expansion. It was after the XT, but before the AT (which sported 16-bit ISA expansion)

    Ummm. My first mac was my dual 533...but I used to use the old Apple IIe labe back in elementary school. Then was the powermac lab in HS, then the G4 lab in college. I got my mac a year ago.

    I'm spoiled by the speed, but it wasn't cheap.

    My first mac was an SE, 20 meg HD, 4MB ram, floppy drive. it was a blast. :p

    got an LCII after that, it's pretty horrible, but slap a zip drive on it and it's workable. Then an iMac. i have a mac plus and a IIgs in storage, both operate...

    My first Mac was a power computer clone (powercenter pro 210). I then got a G4 500MHz (agp graphics). I have also had a series of Powerbooks, starting with the Lombard, then the Pismo, then the rev. a TiBook and now the rev c TiBook. Each one has been the fastest processor at the time, so that I would be able to get more use out of it. I have sold each of the previous systems in order to get the next newer one. With that being the case, I have only one Mac, the rev. c TiBook. :D

    My first Mac (also my very first computer) was a Macintosh Classic II. After that, I got a Macintosh LC-475 now running OS 8.1. The LC is at home collecting dust but it'll be a while before I get rid of it. I currently own a G3 PowerBook and will hopefully purchase a TiBook this summer.

    I was quite late in joining the Mac community.
    My first mac was a PowerMac G4 400Mhz, 512Mb, 20Gb, DVD, 0S 9.
    I don't tend to keep hold of old kit, so the oldest machine I have at the moment is a PIII600Mhz, 448Mb RAM, 60Gb that I use as my file server running Win2K Server.

    My first mac wasn't a mac, but a Power Computing Power Tower Pro, I bought it in 95 or 96 and I still have it, so that would be answers to both questions.
