    I know this has been discussed before but just for the new members. Also, I want to see how things work for people. This is mine:

    PowerMac 1.8 SP G5 (Original) + Apple Wireless Keyboard & Mouse + Airport Extreme + Bluetooth + 768mb RAM + Beefy 2.1 Creative Speakers -> OS X

    iBook 366 SE + 320mb RAM + Airport Card -> OS X

    iMac 233mhz Rev. B + 288mb RAM + USB Belkin Wireless Dongle + Standard Apple Keyboard & Mouse -> OS 9

    Edit: I have an iPod mini too! 4GB

    Airport Extreme Base Station + HP Printer Attached

    2mbit ADSL Broadband Connection.

    Things I would change: I want to get rid of the iMac, but it's not really worth selling on ebay. I love my iBook, it was my first Mac. But at the moment in a VERY long time I really am happy with my main Mac (the G5). Want to get rid of old iMac and replace with a newer iMac (the fanless variety about 500mhz). Also I really need a decent laptop. My poor iBook has lost its way. :D

    My workstation

    Apple II+ 128 k ram. printer card with IBM thermal inkjet printer. Hayes 1200 baud modem. Green scale monitor. Two 5 1/2 floppy drives. Baby screams. Oh wait this isn't 1982.

    currently using dual 1.25 g4 with all the bells and whistles. What sucks is that Apple II+ was more expensive than my current setup. Whats funny is that the computer will still boot. But I seem to have forgoten most of the basic commands to make it do something.

    I'm using a 12" 1.33 GHz Superdrive PowerBook G4 here. It's my first Mac, as well as my first laptop. I sold my old PC (Athlon 2000+, 512 RAM, 300 GB HDD, etc) to my brother, and now have a VIA 800 MHz Mini-ITX machine that I use on the rare occasion that I need some Windows software, as well as to play around with Linux.

    I expect that my next computer will be either an iMac G5, or possibly a PowerMac, depending on how much money I have when I finally decide to get a new desktop. For reference, the first computer I ever used extensively was a Compaq 8086 machine. First Mac I used regularly was a Mac II (still have both machines, both still work just great, still use the Mac II for games occasionally).
