What does the "macrumors 6502" under my name mean?

I see quite a few others with the same, some with 6502a.

Thanks
 

Peace

The 6502 was never used in a Mac. The original Mac had a Motorola 68000 CPU.

The lowly 6502 was used in the Apple I and II and Commodore PET (my first PC).
The Apple I and II were Apple products.

Developer Steve Wozniak
Type Personal computer
Release date April 11, 1976
Introductory price $ 666.66
Discontinued September 30, 1977
CPU MOS 6502 @ 1 MHz
Memory 4 KB standard
expandable to 8 KB or 48 KB using expansion cards
Graphics 40×24 characters, hardware-implemented scrolling
Successor Apple II

When I said "Mac". That is what I was referring to.

And that is what the naming convention on MacRumors refers to also.

Well well well. Once you start doing more and more posts in areas of interest you will love this site and spend alot of time on it!
And after that, you will walk away slowly, with single returns. Or stay away a week and eat all the spinach left and then return under a new pseudonym and amass 1.5 times more posts.

It's clearly your post count.
If you're serious, you kind of missed all of the preceding posts on this thread. OP has, at this moment, 393 posts.

If you're not serious, some indication that you are joking (e.g. :rolleyes:, or;), or something of the kind) are useful as it is sometimes hard to tell with written communication.:)
