    7 Macs?! Wow, that's a lot.

    I suppose your next computer will probably be a MacBook Pro?

    Really? Well I suppose it's a pretty good value with a 24" screen and all.

    I don't really need a MBP, my G4 PB will do me for a few more years. But my G4 Quicksilver is beginning to show it's age...

    I'm on my first Mac, a rev D 12" powerbook without superdrive. It's 18 months old now, but still does everything i need flawlessly. To keep it up with the times i have added Tiger, 1GB of ram and have supplemented it with an external hard drive.

    I'm hoping this thing will see me through Uni :) (4 years to go!)

    Just for the record, there is no such thing as an iBook G5, the last ones were G4.

    I currently have a MacBook and PowerBook, although the PowerBook is going to be sold soon (after I run a few tests to compare speeds)

    15" Powerbook, love it. When I get back to the US and it's time to buy a new desktop, I'll likely be getting a new iMac.

    My problem is that I hold on to my Macs a bit too long. Then, when I see how much I can get for them (only a few hundred dollars), I decide that it's too much of schlep to sell them, and keep them "just in case". So, while apart from my 24" iMac (which should be arriving today), and my 2 yr old 12" Powerbook, I have no other Macs younger than 5yrs, I have these collecting dust in one location or another:

    Mac Plus (w/ 20MB SCSI HD!)
    Some sort of LC
    Powerbook 1400c
    Bondi iMac 233Mhz G3
    iBook SE G3 - 466Mhz

    Recently I sold my Power Mac Dual G5 to get a MacBook Pro. I chucked the MacBook Pro on eBay at the start of this week though when I went to a store and played around with the new Core 2 Duo iMac, I really had to have 1! So in the house at the moment we current have my computer an iMac 20" C2D and my GFs iMac G5.

    2 PPC iMacs (a G4 and a G3), and a G5 PowerMac for me. Not looking to go Intel for a little while yet.

    I snuggle in bed with my PowerBook. It's a 12-incher.

    MacBook
    iBook G4
    PowerBook G3 (Pismo)
    Power Mac 7500 (with G3 upgrade)
    Performa 630

    The MacBook is the only I use on a day to day basis. The iBook is my backup, but with only 256 MB RAM it makes Tiger a bit funky. We have to defect Pismos, but there should be enough parts to make one functioning. The 7500 and Performa should work, but I haven't fired them up in a long, long time...
