    Personally I've had an LC III, an 800 MHz iBook, and my current 1.25 GHz G4 tower. My brother owns a Performa 5260, and used to have a Colour Classic. He also had a Classic II on 'permanent loan' which he gave back when he got the Colour Classic.

    iBook G4 (800)
    3x Performa 5400 (160)
    PowerMac 6500 (300)
    2x Classic II (0.5?) ;)

    The iBook is really the only usable one at the moment though. I really should get rid of the others, they collect far too much dust which is hell for allergy sufferers (me :( ).

    I've gone through a fair amount of Macs (most of which still probably work) in my time, but currently I have an SE, a Quadra 660AV, a PowerTower Pro 250 (I know, not an Apple, but in my opinion Power Computing made much better Macs than Apple did at the time), a Lime iMac 266 sans CD drive that I got for $5 a month ago, and a Powerbook 400 that had the screen ripped off. The screen is still being used to keep all 8 megs of VRAM in one place. I'm probably going to use my tax returns to grab a Mac Mini or an iBook on the cheap and join all of you in the modern Macintosh world.

    I had the original 17" powerbook with 1GB of Ram, but my house got robbed back in Sept. and so with the insurance money I got the 12" 1.33GHz Combodrive Powerbook with 768MB of RAM, and a 20" iMac G5 with 2GB of RAM.

    When I first came to Japan in 2000, all I had was my old P100 Toshiba laptop. :eek:

    For a desktop I started with just my TiBook hooked up to an old 17" CRT, an Apple Studio monitor I think. After that I got the G4 PM, then the G5. My boss actually gave me the B&W free :D I would sell the B&W but these days in Japan they're dirt cheap so it's not really worth it.

    The Xserve I got used for $1,000 so I jumped at the opportunity. It sits in a closet now doing nothing :rolleyes:

    Most people call me rich, but almost nothing in my collection was bought new. It looks like I spent a fortune, but I really haven't. ;) Shh, don't tell anyone though.

    I'd like to add a Cube, and maybe a Duo 2300 (the only PPC Duo.) Also, I have no iMacs :(

    What does that mean ?

    G4 flat panel iMac- It's old, and obsolete, but it still gets used everyday. Perfect IM, email, word processor, iPhoto stuff machine for the family. Sits right in the living room like a decoration and still draws plenty of "ooh's" and "ahhh's" from visitors. My favorite mac design w/out a doubt.


    1.25 GHZ eMac.- Big, clunky, heavy, and perfect for me. This is my main computer and it's a work horse. I hide it in the corner of my office and work it to death. Never complains. Old faithful.

    iBook G3- ehhh, what can I say. Apple threw in a clunker with this one. I use it everyday, but there's nothing on this computer that isn't on the eMac as well. Can't take any chances with this one. It's a problem waiting to happen, and I know it, but I still like it- in spite of the constant problems, and the 1 1/2 hr. battery life. I guess OS X really is that good.;-)
