    good suggestion

    i have a 300 mhz ibook, the original blueberry one with the 3 GB hard drive

    my mac before that was a powermac clone with a 604e processor running at 185 mhz

    the mac before that was a performa with a 601 running at 60 mhz

    the mac before that was a performa-600 with a 33 mhz 040

    the two machines before that were apple IIe's

    and i have a non-working quadra just waiting for a new lithium battery but i wouldn't know what to do with such an old machine at this point plus i would need to find a monitor and i'm not sure if the remaining monitor with my performa-600 would do the job

    btw...cs lewis is cool...did you see that movie with anthony hopkins as cs lewis with deborah winger?

    I have a PowerBook G4 500 for personal & freelance use...

    A PowerMac G4 400 for work...

    in the signature...

    There is my breakdown.

    My first Mac was a Mac Plus. Man, I was in elementary school and all over MacAttack and Superpaint. Made little games and movies with Hypercard and liked Beyond Dark Castle when my dad upgraded to the SE. Didnt see a Mac until I got to college. Thats when I bought the G3 266. Mmm hmm. Fun fun. Had a 400 mhz G3 powerbook, but dumped that to get the TiBook.

    Use the TiBook now and run my entire business from it. The iMac is for the others who come in and out of the shop, also plays MP3s and DVDs while I am working. The 266 is in the print shop for research and running File Maker. Has RCA in and out which comes in handy from time to time.

    The iPod is awesome. Airport2 is tight.


    Oh man. I sound like I am bragging. Sorry.

    i think it is kind of a cool idea and it's safe since we don't all live on the same street

    signature is better

    this way if someone has a hardware or software issue, others can see what machine they are referring to

    suggestion to team: macrumors

    Maybe it would be nice to have the signature line down a couple point sizes, I thin having your hardware listed is tight, but it is making the pages super long. 10px os something would do.

    signature is better, but...

    In some cases where the user has multiple computers, it can possibly become a bit unclear, don't u think?
