Was a Apple SE. I still have the little guy.

How about everyone else? What was your first Mac?

Mac SE-30 - loved that machine - I turned it into a fishtank after the screen went dead a few years ago.

Same here..

Got it free in 1999 from a customer that was going to "throw it away"

It came with a Macintosh Carrying bag, software, Keyboard, and Mouse. Still have it, and it works awesome to this day!!

Same here. I absolutely LOVED that machine, more than any other computer I ever had. There was just something about it that I loved.

I used to take it everywhere with me. On trips, on the train, on the subway, to work. It lost 3 feet, gained multiple scratches, the lid warped and so did the body but I still love it. It's now with my dad (retired.) :D

The first computer my family bought was a Mac Plus, it was soo sweet, my dad still has it up on their attic.

The first to be exclusively mine was a performa (630 I think), but that didn't leave any big impression on me... it was kind of ugly and I didn't have much use for it back then...

After not using a computers for a few years, only a bit of pc's, I got a 12" iBook 3 years ago and was immediately a born again Mac-user!

...and he lived happily ever after.

First and so far only Mac is a 14" G4 iBook 933MHz, 640mb ram, 40 gig HD.

Hoping to add a G5 something-or-other to the family soon, but I have to worry about mortgage and food first.

My first mac was an SE (unless you want to count the Apple II clones...had a Franklin Ace something-or-other). Sadly, neither one is with us any longer. :(

I have managed to keep all of my old powerbooks up and running, though (a 5300 and a 'wallstreet' model). Still a lot of fun to goof around on! :D

My first was actually a clone-a Umax c500 desktop I bought in '97. It was quirky, but got the job done. I actually cried when I boxed it up to send to my cousin in design school-it changed my life. It was my first computer!

Original iMac 233 Bondi blue - which for me was more of a green but I loved her. She's still going strong out in Turkey.
