    It's funny how almost everything changed after the original iMac...

    Odd to think how, one day, all the latest stuff will also look antiquated.

    Is there a reason why the 2nd generation ipod would be left out?

    Then why is it referred to as the second generation ipod? were there any other differences besides a larger hard-drive?

    Are we looking at the same picture? It goes 2001 iPod 1st Gen, then later in the series, its goes 2003 iPod 3rd Gen. The 2nd Gen iPod had the touch-wheel and a cover for the firewire ports, but design wise, looks exactly the same.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane, BV.

    I still want an eMate, although I'm not sure why :)

    The prettiest Mac would have to be the Mac mini. The perfect, no frills no muss, supercomputer.

    Where are the rest of the monitors?

    Where are the rest of the monitors?

    And the printers, although as Apple don't do do them anymore.

    Unfortunately, this presentation is missing many Mac forms. For example, the original Mac. Nope, the Classic, while similar, looks very different.

    Otherwise it's not a bad display.

    Nice reminder of all the old stuff I used to have. But I'm dismayed by the omission of the venerable IIfx! I know it's form factor evolution, and the form was the same as the II, but internally it was a fairly significant improvement.

    How old are you people? :)

    My experience with Macs started with the PowerMac G4s.

    I can see the original Mac (1984), also I believe the first Mac II (ans IIx) shared the same 6 slots case as the Mac IIfx, but I'm not sure.

    I suddenly realized the the LC/Perfrma/Quadra 630 (and perf/pm 6200/6300) case is missing

    It was power at the time, and it stayed a great machine for a pretty long time as well.

    Anyone still have any of these old Macs around that they use? I'd be interested to hear about the oldest regularly used Mac here in the forum.

    Can anyone confirm that the second "1990 Macintosh Classic" is in fact a Mac IIsi??? Our family owned one of those. Sweet machines back then. Although expensive as hell (more than $4000 with monitor).

    Everymac.com has a more complete list, although the images aren't anywhere near as nice.

    Good find.

    It was intentional. :)

    Just thought it was eye-catching & appropriate...

    Years of reading US copies of Cosmo when I was a kid has indelibly emblazoned slogans like that into my brain... :eek:
