    Two years before I joined here. :D

    Only Mac I owned then, 15.1" PowerBook G4/400mhz, 512mb ram, 60GB HD (specs as it was then).

    This Mac died twice and is now in pieces in my garage except for the screen which is currently attached to my son's Titanium DVI.

    This guy still works but I don't hook him up to much anymore. Easier to just run Basilisk II on my Mac mini. He stays on my desk though!

    Oh how I remember the days at work when someone with a 21" CRT monitor left the company and everyone jumped on it before they were out the door. Now you can't give them away (and 21" is considered too small)!

    How true, in fact my local e-recycler takes electronics for free but charges for CRT based items. As Bob Dylan said, "Your old road is rapidly agin" ... "For the times they are a-changin".

    I have a Performa 550 that I like. Its falling apart, but the history of the machine is incredible. It had the same owner from childhood to business owner.

    Those CRTs (iMacs and displays) are somehow interesting to look at but on the other hand they are mekonl.jpg a burden...

    Here's images taken in 2008 from a Moto RAZR I had at the time showing my old Mac collection. :)

    iMac G3, Apple IIc, Mac mini, Macintosh Classic

    iBook G3 Clamshell, 12" iBook G3 Snow, 12" iBook G4

    I've also had another iMac G3 since then, and I have a 12" PowerBook G4 as well.

    Several months ago, I was desperately hunting for "The" Apple 21" CRT(the counterpart to the one pictured above). I actually was offered several for free "if you come and get it." Most 21" CRTs are heavy, but at 77lbs the Apple one is among the heaviest plus is very "slippery."

    Ultimately, I found one on Craigslist at a graphics design firm about 20 minutes away. They had an Apple "Collection" up for $1500, but I spotted the CRT and shot them a $50 offer for it. I ended up walking away with the display along with an acrylic studio, a Yikes!, a Sawtooth, a dual 1.25 MDD, and a big pile of software for $150. I was happy :)

    I really wanted a "blueberry" 21" but given how hard they are to find these days, I was more than happy to get a graphite(as far as I know they're identical save for the plastic color). I do have the 17" in both blueberry and graphite.
