    I want some pictures of some PPC / 86k Macs. Pre Macintosh stuff is allowed too!

    Here is my PowerBook and broken iBook. My PowerBook is shown on it's desk. I need a new monitor as my PowerBook supports 30 inchers!

    The iBook will cut on and boot off an external HD but it randomly locks up. (not anymore it only runs the fan)

    I am 14.

    One. :p Is that 128/512k/Plus mounted on your door?

    EDIT: Also, my camera battery is charging right now, I'll get some pictures in a few minutes. (ALL my Macs are 68k/PCC except my mini.)

    What model is your PB? Mine is the 1.67 GHz with 1280*854 screen and was the first with the scrolling trackpad and sudden motion sensor.

    And has anybody had an external hard drive lock up?

    How many apple power adapters have you had fail for white iBooks /G4 PBs I gave up on apple power adapters after having 2 fail. luckly my PB came with a 3RD party one. I only have one between the PowerBook and the iBook

    It is a 128k, perfect condition, still works fine, sitting sideways on a dusty shelf in my closet.

    ALL my Macs period are PPC.

    EDIT:

    It was the 1.67 lo-res version, but with 128MB VRAM BTO.

    does it have a 100 GB 5400 RPM HD and 2 GB ram because if it has this it is identical to mine!

    I need at least 1 intel even a Hackintosh or a mini though. I do not have a single intel Mac. My newest is my PB.

    Actually, yes.

    It's long gone though, sold it about ten months ago.

    Just build a $300 Hackintosh. It's basically a 20" iMac minus the Apple and the screen.

    My 12" 800 MHz iBook G3, which is covered under a pile of crap, because well, it is crap. Worked well for a few months, then started having every issue that line is known for.

    My Macinosh Classic. The keyboard I had for it broke, and there's a floppy disk stuck in the Superdrive. But other then that, it works great.

    And finally, my clamshell 300 Mhz Blueberry iBook G3. I just have it because it's the coolest laptop design in history.:p

    And there you have it, my collection of Macs. :)

    If my Mac collection was, say, Chuck Norris, your collection would be dead from a roundhouse kick to the face in .0023 seconds.

    My parents weren't happy with my hobby. In fact, I'm not allowed to buy any more computers. :( Otherwise, we'd have us a little contest going on here. :p

    And I am basically all PPC anyway. My mini is dead basically, it only turns on sometimes and it's missing its optical drive, hard drive and pretty much everything else, so I don't count it as a computer. ;) My iBook G4 is me "flagship" macine. (Though I am looking for an eMac for a new desktop Mac.)

    PowerPC Macs were the best. This thread brought good old memories. :)

    Thank you! :)

    Used to have this 512k with a Hyperdrive 20MB HDD. It was really something.

    Pity I sold it to someone as part of a trade. It fetched $400 on eBay. :mad:
