    Hi,
    Yeah I know this has been done before, but we have many new members now who may have a collection of MACS and other APPLE hardware. (Members who have done this before feel free to join in) So to get us started here's my collection from oldest to newest:

    The original Macintosh! :D :D (it's my dad's)
    A Macintosh LC (just LC with its monitor)
    A Performa 6400/200 (with apple 15" multiscan AV monitor)
    A PowerMac 9500/120 (see the computer in my profile, it's been upgraded alot)
    An iMac DV 400 Grape
    An iBook dual USB rev.A 500mhz
    And last, but not least an iMac 800mhz 15" with superdrive (my dad loves this thing) :rolleyes:

    Oh yes and other apple accessories are:
    an old apple ribbon style printer that is with the macintosh
    an old apple deskwriter (or something like that) with the LC
    I think we have an old stylewriter 1000 here someware :confused:
    a apple stylewriter 2500 color
    the apple monitors mentioned above

    Yesterday on the Antique road Show somebody brought an original Mac. It belonged to Steve Wozniak, and it was given to somebody as a gift, then sold at a garage sale. Woz had written an inscription on the back, and signatured it.

    They said it was worth $15,000 - $20,000. :eek:

    Impressive

    I'm really impressed. How did you end up with one of those?


    from http://www.normalkid.com/collector/seahorse.html

    Overall, an excellent and unique Newton. Unfortunately, the Seahorse was canceled right before the launch. Digital Ocean soon folded. As a result, none were sold, and only 40+ production units are in existance.


    Quite a rare one there.

    Still have all my mac's, just gave a few to some friends and family so they can enjoy the mac platform :D

    - IIx @16MHz (upgraded the ram and hd and still running on the internet, is quite slow, but is used by my grandmother (76 years and her first pc!)

    - Performa 5200 @ 75MHz (used by a friend to check mail at his shop)

    - Powermac 7100 @ 66 MHz (used as a router for our office/home network)

    - Powermac 7200 @ 90 Mhz (not used (yet))

    - Powermac 4400 @ 200 Mhz (used as backup)

    - Powermac 6500 @ 300 Mhz (used by my sister to do everything)

    - Powerbook G3 @ 250 Mhz (for on the road)

    - Powermac G4 2x @ 450 Mhz (main work computer)

    - iMac Flat Screen @ 800 Mhz (home computer)

    - iPod 10 GB (for music :D and data)

    So, that's it, as you see, all of them are still used! Those mac's just keep going on! :D
    And I hope that my next mac will be the G5!

    Re: Impressive

    Duke, you realize you just quoted me from my site (normalkid)... right?

    I was big into the Newton collecting... and ran across a guy who had most of the stock after Digital Ocean closed shop. I traded a Newton 2100 for it. (which cost me $500 at the time)

    Ha, I had absolutely no idea. Very cool.

    What's the going price for one of those puppies today?

    Re: Here goes

    Yeah...A cube would be sooo sweet with a 1gig cpu upgrade :D. Along with the other stuff that you have...

    PS: If you're planning on getting the Sonnet one they say you can only go up to 800mhz with the cube...I believe with PowerLogix you can go the full 1ghz!:D
