My computer collection (mostly for Macs) 73 total computers!

If you can wait another month I can get away with it. Let me know!


They're not going anywhere that soon... so we can probably make that happen. They've sat here for 9 years... so another month ain't gonna matter.

Really? I'd pay for shipping if iamMacPerson doesn't want it, I really want one.


I couldn't do just shipping on it... but I'd be fair. It is somewhat in rough shape and has some case cracks. Runs fine though. It's the only one I've ever seen or found in the "wild".

Sent you a PM. Or it didn't send.

Is that the same as a Wallstreet? I've got one of those I need to get rid of too...

No the Kanga predates the Wallstreet, in fact the PDQ is the Wallstreet II.

The Kanga looks more like the PowerBook 3400.


Kanga on the right, Bronze Keyboard on the left.

Haven't found one yet! :) If I ever do and it's at a good price I'd love one. Same with a G3 Kanga.

I am lucky to have a PowerBook 3400/240 and Kanga in my collection. When I got my Kanga it had a 12x CDROM module so I have been on the lookout for the proper 20X CDROM which I finally got from an eBay auction this year... Parts for the Kanga is very rare and difficult to find, let alone a complete functional laptop. Good luck on your search for a Kanga...

Hard to believe this computer retailed for $5,699 when it was being sold...

Add me to the list of people looking for a Kanga also.

I'm working a deal for an AIO("Molar Mac") G3.

These two computers will complete my collection of G3-powered Macs.

I envy your Kanga! If I ever find one, that and my Cube will be the absolute last machine to go if I need to sell my collection. I'm actually getting to that point that I'm sliming down what I have now and making room for more Macs that I'd like to have. Right now though, I'm on an iPod buying kick. In the last month I have ordered three 3rd Gens. :p

Well, this is sad and slightly depressing.

My signature line is my current "collection." I once had a pretty good collection going and then I moved and got rid of everything and then reacquired some again and then sold those as well!

What I have now in my house (but shared by everyone in my family) is:

1. PowerMac G5 Quad
2. Late 2009 iMac 21.5" 3.06GHz C2D 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD
3. iPhone 4S
4. iPhone 3GS 32GB
5. iPhone 3GS 16GB
6. iPad mini 2
7. iPad 1 32GB WiFi/Cell
8. iPad 1 16GB WiFI/Cell
9. iPod video 5G 32GB clickwheel (2004)
10. iPod video 5G 32GB clickwheel (2004)
11. Dell AIO ( my wife's work machine) Pentium, Windows 8, 4 GB RAM.
