    Favourite = Cube. I reckon they could get a Core Duo in that little bugger if they tried. BRING BACK THE CUBE!!!!

    Least Favourite = tray loading iMac G3. Sure it's an icon but the slot loaders were sooo much better.

    I forgot about the Apple ///

    Still would go with the Color Classic but the Apple /// would not be far behind.

    Favorite: Pismo

    Least favorite: 12" PowerBook G4 (interesting to me that mwpeters8182 listed it as the favorite...the screen is no better than a 12" iBook and it's overpriced IMO...iBook is 90% of the speed at 2/3 the cost.)

    *Bonus favorite vintage Mac: PowerMac 5500. All-in-one, integrated TV tuner...I still have one for watching cable TV while surfing the web or playing WoW!.

    *Bonus least-favorite vintage Mac: LC III - I used to own two, down to one with 20MB of RAM and a 160MB hard drive. Dunno what people saw in these other than low price. System 7.5 is slow as crap.

    macOSX-tastic are you including the B&W G3 in that? I thought it was a great machine, not far behind the Pismo.

    I bought the 12" PB when there was more of a gap between the two. For the last year of so, it's been a terrible deal, I agree. I needed the ability to run it closed with an external monitor, which I wouldn't do with the hack (overheating issues), and needed the extra 32 MB of video RAM.

    Favorite: Pismo

    Least: Any gray box from the 90s (even if I loved both my Performa 630 and PM 7500 at the time, those machines (and every other Performa, Quadra, PowerMac (until the B&W), etc. were butt ugly...)
