    They are good fun to get, and are free at stores. I have a modest collection, iMac G5, iBook G4, iPod 5G, iPod Nano, Applecare, etc.

    I have a few Newton ones. I also have one for the Pismo (or Lombard, I forget) and the white iBook when it first came out. I used to love those small credit-card sized pamphlets.

    used to collect them

    I worked at CompUSA for 5 years and made it a point to get my hands on all the extra pamplets and posters we had in the store the entire time. I have small foldout cards for the original iMac through early generation G5 towers and flatscreen iMac's. I also have an original iMac flavor poster and a fabric banner for the first white ibook. Unfortunetly never got the huge rigid think different posters (4 by 8 feet) because the Apple tech would always take them home first!

    I have quite a few IMO. Would pick up any new ones whenever I venture into an Apple store.

    Also, saldly yes, quite a few! Have a look half way down the page.

    They used to do those lovely little 'Take One' product leaflets, I used to take more then one!

    Just been in to the two stores in Florida and only one leaflet available, same in both stores (ProCare leaflet), cost cutting no doubt.

    VERY nice collection, mine is mostly more common computers, with a few bits of paraphenalia. (Including an Adjustable Keyboard, complete with original price tag.)

    I'm very disappointed that my PowerCD died after only about a year of use, so I threw it away! Oh, the humanities, looking back on it. (I wasn't a collector yet, it was brand new.) And I'd love to get a nice TAM, too. Do you have OS X running on it?

    Thanks for the comments guys, the TAM runs 9.2.1 as the forums warn against installing OSX as it can cause serious problems.

    The machine has been upgraded to a G3 500mhz with 128mb Ram (max) and has a 10/100 card in so happily sits on my DSL network, I do have Wireless Card for it but have been too lazy to install it!

    I used to collect them in the days of the Tangerine iBook and Graphite PowerMac. I still have my old ones, but I don't have any new ones.

    I must be honest, I did, until I seems I had most likly over 10,000 of them, so I sold them all and got me $156.50 on eBay (They were from 1978-2003)... But oh well.
