I have about half that many computers. But I have somewhere around 10 apple printers that all work, i lend them to family. I have a Newton MP500 that I am trying to fix, but I think its toast.
Im just too lazy to list my stuff. Oh yea, and I have a ton of those old "think different" posters with Edison and all of the other "thinkers"

Well a couple of them anyway.
That's pretty neat, but you need to find CRTs for all of them and bask in the radioactive glow in your room.

Dang, you're 18 and been collecting for 4 years? When do you find the time for drugs, fighting, crime and sex like I had during my formative years?

Yes they all work

They all work except the 1400 and the powermac 5200 has a dead PSU.. and the LC 630's are both missing the PSU's because I sold them. :)

Bah!

Epoxy. A shotgun. Tequila.

That stack of beige crap would come apart nicely with a few hand grenades...........

Saving, of course the 1st edition toasters if you have any. They have a Woz signature in the inside of the case moulded into the plastic.:rolleyes:

Time for eBay!

My 8500 got stolen when my moving van 'disappeared' late last year.

I now have a new QS which eBay paid for (cost me $120 out of pocket). Here's how:
By a machine that is really a deal (like a 7500 512/2x9gb, with 15" Multiscan, keyboard & mouse for $120 shipped). Buy another machine, which takes parts from your first. Fill the second machine with all but your minimum parts necessary to boot your first. Write a really good listing on eBay, and start it between 6-8PST.

Sell your first machine for what your first and second machine cost combined.

Repeat.

I've had 25 Macs this year, and now am happily typing from a QS! ..all for $120 & some time.

I used to think having a bunch of older machines would be great, but collecting anything requires space, and frankly, I can't justify using any of my space to shelve an LC (this is very expensive for us San Franciscans).

If I were digitalrampage, I'd keep the 1984 machines, and those that are in ACTIVE use, eBay the rest, and buy a QS. That way my best machine wouldn't be a 7200!
