    So I've have 3 more Macs on the way to being added to my collection of now 28 Macs and 41 computers all together :D . First new mac is a 24in iMac Acrylic with a Core 2 Duo. It has a dead GPU sadly, but a friend of mine is trying to get me a new GPU for it. The computer should be in my possession within the next week or two.
    Second new Mac is a Core Duo Mac Mini. I'll be putting a Core 2 Duo in as well as 2GB of RAM. The computer will be here tomorrow, but the PSU will be here in the next few weeks.
    Lastly, the third new mac is a PowerBook G4 15in DLSD! I've been wanting a new 15in PowerBook ever since I fried my 1.25GHz 15in a few months ago, and there's no better 15in PowerBook than the DLSD! That should be coming within the next 2 weeks.
    Also, on a side note, finally got a working (and correct) battery for my ThinkPad T61. These next few weeks are going to be really fun with all these new toys :) . As always, when I get them I'll be sure to post lots of pictures.

    I love my 12in 1.5GHz. Perfect for portability and great for when I need to quickly look something up or want to use a computer in bed. Best of luck to you with yours!

    Got the Mac Mini today! It had s 1.86GHz Core Duo, 60GB HDD, 512MB of RAM, and a combo drive. I spent a hour getting some upgrades in, so now it has a 2.00GHz Core 2 Duo T7200, 80GB HDD, 2GB of RAM (hopefully 3 in the future), but kept the combo drive since I'm out of spare SuperDrives. Overall, it's in nice condition, but the inside was one giant block of dust, so that took awhile to clean out. I can't wait to get the PSU and try it out and see how well it performs!

    Here are some pics;

    Yeah it was pretty awful, but it's all cleaned now. I did indeed get good deals on all 3!

    The white acrylic iMacs do look great. I've got a bunch of them running as "RDP-clients" in my office.
    I'm pretty happy about replacing the old equipment from 2003 with those machines.
    You can get decent machines for a good price 'cause they are limited to Lion, since the EFI-boot-ROM is limited to 32bit. What a shame...
    Anyway - beside their job as "RDP-Clients" they serve as separate network for backups and web-lookups and the children have a lot of fun with PhotoBooth.
