I searched on the forum for this and didn't dig it up, so I figured I start this thread... How did YOU get into collecting PowerPC Macs (and 68k macs if anyone collects those as well) and why do you do so? I figured that this would be an interesting topic to ask you guys and for everyone to share their responses. I'll start by telling my story... In the past November, I was at computer club at my school. The guy in charge, the tech coordinator who I have became good friends with, asked us if anyone wanted a free Mac desktop that was old. I immediately said that I would take it. He told me about it, and I discovered this whole world of PowerPC Macs. This certain Mac, my second mac and first PowerPC mac, was a Dual 1.3GHz PowerMac G5 from Early 05. In my anticipation, I made a thread on here, being that I was a member but never really used it, and it sparked a lot of attention (in the top 10 most replied to threads on this forum!). A few weeks later, I finally got it and had some issues with it, so i got some help from members on here. That is really the point in which I wanted to get more older macs because I realized they would be worth something in the future. After that, I picked up a Power Macintosh 6100/66 and a eMac within a week of each other. The 6100/66 became the oldest computer I owned at the time and it was awesome using it. After those two, I was satisfied for about a month. I came upon a good price for a iBook G4 from LowEndMac, so I bought that. I absolutely love that computer (which I'm using right now to type this), being that it is much less distracting in school than my iPad. Then I noticed a pristine 512ke on eBay for $100. I went and bought it for $120 since it came with some stuff that wasn't originally listed. That became that oldest computer I owned and will likely stay like that unless I get an Apple II at some point. Recently, I tried to get 9 PowerMac G4s for free from my school. However, as of right now, that deal has fallen through thanks to NJ owning them. Luckily, the owner was a collector as well and wanted to get rid of some of his least used Macs. Thus, he gave me a PowerBook G3 Wallstreet, Power Macintosh 7300, Power Macintosh 8500, PowerMac G4 MDD, a more powerful eMac, LaserWriter printer, and a Performa 6360. Thus, that brought my total amount of computers to 16, 11 of which are Macs, and 10 of which are PowerPC. Of course, I'll be getting many more, free or not. I'm extremely grateful for you guys for really getting me into this and helping me with any issues I encounter. The users here are some of the nicest people I've ever spoken to. I'm also grateful to my tech coordinator for really getting me started with the G5, and the retired teacher that gave me the other stuff. That is my story, sorry if I rambled on a little too much, but maybe someone will have the patience to read it all. I'm very interested to hear other's stories as well.
