    My iBook G4 / 800 MHz is my first Apple, but I've used them before, so... :D

    - Apple II's in elem. school (played the old school Castle Wolfenstein ;) and a couple of other stupid edutainment games) Also played extensively with my best friend's Franklin-branded Apple II clone. His parents got him Gauntlet cuz it was a multiplayer game so they figured he would socialize more :) and we did a lot of programming for fun.
    - Apple IIgs in junior high school (played more stupid games, including Ultima I/II yay!, argued with CS teacher about needing to learn Appleworks when I knew how to do the same stuff on my Amiga)
    - Original Mac -- only used occasionally.
    - Mac IICI - my undergraduate student newspaper had two of these running PageMaker and MS Word 5.1 much later than reasonable...like in the Performa era. :( I used those soooo much. Hated the drunk mac boot icon soooo much. :)
    - Performa-ish Mac (something with an 030 or 040) - we used these for part of freshman computing, just for MS apps
    - big gap
    - iBook G4, iPod, AEBS...lovin' it.

    Is there a site where you can get a list of all of Apple's computers, with photos to accompany the list? There's two brands I can't remember the name of.

    started with a 7600
    then got a used 5300 powerbook
    then a clamshell ibook 300
    next got a g4 733 (superdrive / digital audio)
    fianly got given a imac rev A

    the ibook / imac / g4 are used every day the 5300 will still work but battery life not good now.

    if i ve got the money this year i will upgrade the ibook to a new 12" ibook or powerbook. & hopefully the g4 to a g5 in about a year.

    before the macs i used atari st had about 4 of them.

    That apple-history site is very cool inded.

    My first encounter with a work computer was a mac. I learned to type on a 1989 MAC portable my dad got for the office. I remember how impressive it was that it was a computer-to-go. This thing weight a ton and it came along with a huge case wich looked like you wanted to go on holiday for a week.

    Then I got my dads old mac it was a 1992 PowerbookDuoDock. I still have that one. :D It is just so nice to look at. I will have to build a Mac shrine for my old machines. Mac has always had the best concepts, this one was defenitely ubercool.

    Then my first bought computer just for myself was at the tender age of 20 years and it was a G3 Powermac 400 mhz with the 12 gig drive, and 640 RAM wich I still use today.

    I was never really into computers untill I could use them artistically. I got the G3 for my design studies, it helped me a lot :p

    But now its time for a change. I already ordered my 2,5 G5 with 1,5 gig of ram. IIIIIIhaaa :D

    i had never used a mac before (apart from in the apple store for about 5 mins) in that time i found the os so easy to use i knew i had to get one. (it was either apple or a vaio - i made the right decision)

    Those things were cool! My friends dad had one of those while working for Motorola. He let me play with it every once in a while. I thought it was a great idea being able to have a desktop and then whenever you wanted a laptop, just pull it out of the machine. Cool stuff :cool:
    And congrats on the new machine :D
