This Poll's topic : Macs of the '90s

Well, heres the seventh poll. As I explained in the first poll I will do a series of these polls and eventually post a final poll with the highest ranking item in each category. This poll should be interesting. I'm curious which of these machines will win.

I can tell you right now what gets my vote for the worst Apple Product ever made:

The Twentieth Aniv. Mac

If you had ten thousand dollars you would be somewhat happy to get one.

Worst code names: Spartacus, Smoke and Mirrors

Small display window, 12.1"

Maybe it looks cool for its design, but it looks more like a desktop version of the Macintosh Portable!

I would vote for basically everything else.

Anytime is a great time for iPod.

It was like a predecessor to the cube in terms of style over success. Looked great, but needed some refinement.

It sure had style though.

I love the Colo(u)r Classic, I have mine running OSX, its probably the only mac to have a whole club dedicated to it :)

But then again, I love the 20th Century mac, I just wish I had one :)

I concur with those who chose the TAM... I think it showed the world that like a car, a computer could be luxurious too (italian leather palmrests... enough said).. I don't think comparing it to the cube is fair, because the cube was aimed at a larger market, whereas this was kind of a fundraiser project for Apple, to sell to their biggest fans...

that said i really friggin' want one. i've got RJ convinced we need one, so now it's just a matter of raising $1,500 :)

TAM, Apple's initial foray into the LCD all in one computer was so cool at the time. It was just too expensive. Its nice to see that they've managed to reincarnate it with the new G4 iMac.

x100 Macs.

I hated nearly all of the Macs from the era of 6100, 7100, 8100, and 9100s. I think that era was one of the worst points in Apples history.

I voted for the Quadra because it was the pinnicle of Mac-ness for so long. It was the cock of the walk. Just the other day, I was talking about my Mac to a co-worker and he ended up asking me if I had a Quadra. I had to inform him that Macs have been upgraded to G4s and G3s. He still thought that Quadras were the top. For a long time they were.
