    Cube 0.5GHz: My main machine, and also the fastest of all my machines. It's my current desktop.

    iBook (Graphite) Firewire: My only portable. Sometimes used to show off at classmates, other times, used for actuall classwork.

    iMac 233: Runs OS 9, used rarely, if at all, for the internet, runs smoothly with minimal usage.

    I've got a 17" PowerBook, which gets used for audio with Logic and ProTools etc, video with FCP3 and After FX, and DVD authoring with DVDSP, it also runs all the Uni admin stuff, we hold a FM pro database for all the students, and all the course documentation.

    I also have an eMac 700, which is a general home machine as well as doubling for the PBook, and a TiBook 400 which is my old Uni machine which I forgot to give back.

    my desktop is a quicksilver 867. it's used for everything, mostly final cut pro and after effects and some photoshop stuff.

    my portable is a 15" 1ghz tibook. i use it mainly for writing and editing, and when the animal club has a show, i run our AV cues from backstage (tibook attatched to wireless svhs/audio sender)

    i've also got a broken bondi blue imac; not sure what rev. it's a refurb project i've had on the backburner for over six months now.

    on the horizon is a new G5 for me, and i'm buying my parents a FP imac (so when i move to chicago this fall, we can use ichat AV to keep my mom's seperation anxiety in check ;)).

    I just bought an SE/30 last week (I had to leave my old one in the US). I already have 8x16MB ram, a 12GB HD and an asante ethernet card that I'll put in there... ;)

    I'll use it for:
    - network fileserver
    - low end wordprocessing and spreadsheeding
    - showing off :D

    I'm also thinking about buying a Powerbook 2400 that has a G3-upgrade... might be a nice OS9 machine and highly portable... the guy wants a pretty high price for that so I might let it pass... (even though I want it really bad :( )

    I use my mac for most of my stuff, except gaming (got a pc for that). It's an G4 466 and after the latest reinstall of jaguar it got most of the speed back and can last one extra year.
