    Inspired by the Greatest Apple Product thread:

    Here's how it works: I post all of the products in this category, you vote for the worst. The loser gets eliminated at the end of (about) a two day period. We do this until we are left with the best product, which may go into some finalist type of thing; I haven't decided. So let's begin!

    Apple I
    Apple II
    Apple II+
    Apple IIc
    Apple IIc+
    Apple IIe
    Apple IIgs
    Apple III
    Lisa

    My vote: Apple III.

    Edit: removed contender (Lisa II/Mac XL) that never actually got shipped, and added a variation on the Apple IIc, the IIc+. It should not affect the voting, as no one has voted for either.

    I'm not sure if this was satire or not, but if you want people to vote, shouldn't you make it a poll??

    if it were...I'm not sure he could "eliminate" one of the choices once it's been voted upon...

    my vote: Apple I :p

    re: poll

    Yeah, I could do a poll, but only for a few of the categories, since you can't have a poll larger than 10 choices, IIRC. If it's wanted, I'll put in a poll for the categories that I can, or when the number of items in the category gets small enough.

    poll

    due to popular demand, and that no one is posting in it's current form, I'll restart this with a poll tonight. It looks like Lisa is getting kicked off.

    Apple III would have to leave the nest for me.

    My all-time favorite is the Apple IIc.
    Remember Karateka, and sammy lighfoot?
    Or the summer and winter Olympics (although I've played those on the Apple II as well) the Apple IIc was really ahead, fast, easy, not that bad looking either, a lot of specs ehead of it's time, heck, some brand new peecee still use some of that stuff that was already in the IIc.
    (If you don't believe me check how a non-usb mouse and keyboard are hooked up to a peecee!)

    The first computer voted out of the tribe...

    The Apple III, with 3 votes. Next was the Lisa with 2 and last was the Apple I with 1. Starting a new thread with a poll for part 2. Voting is closed for this thread.
