    Does anywhere no where I can buy a original macintosh ( yes I know i'm a geek:rolleyes:) The reason why i want the original macintosh or a couple years after the original macintosh is because I am a huge fan of apple in general. I would also like to show it to my friends.

    Thanks,

    The original Mac might be hard to come buy. You can start with maybe a Mac Classic? Get one with an internal HD so you can load the system and a bunch of old games/software?

    Geek? Hardly, maybe a Mac Addict? I would hardly call this guy a geek:

    I noticed that there are a lot of original Macs on ebay right now. So, now is a good time to buy. You can probaly pick up one for MAYBE $70.

    One
    two
    three





    I assume you aren't including 512k macs? they are originals, just with more RAM.

    Besides, how much do you consider to be "a lot"?

    I'd say that depends on rarity value.

    3 Mac Pros?? Not a lot.

    3 Original Macs....quite a lot given how many are probably in circulation.

    They're not considered the originals. They don't have the same value as the 128ks.

    I'd say more than 6 is a lot. But there aren't even three, since there only two are 128ks.

    Just about 5 years ago, there used to be tons and tons of older hardware. Typing "Quadra" would give several pages of results. Now it's only 14. Sad.
