7 Macs?! Wow, that's a lot.

I suppose your next computer will probably be a MacBook Pro?

Really? Well I suppose it's a pretty good value with a 24" screen and all.
I don't really need a MBP, my G4 PB will do me for a few more years. But my G4 Quicksilver is beginning to show it's age...

I'm on my first Mac, a rev D 12" powerbook without superdrive. It's 18 months old now, but still does everything i need flawlessly. To keep it up with the times i have added Tiger, 1GB of ram and have supplemented it with an external hard drive.

I'm hoping this thing will see me through Uni :) (4 years to go!)

I currently have a MacBook and PowerBook, although the PowerBook is going to be sold soon (after I run a few tests to compare speeds)

My problem is that I hold on to my Macs a bit too long. Then, when I see how much I can get for them (only a few hundred dollars), I decide that it's too much of schlep to sell them, and keep them "just in case". So, while apart from my 24" iMac (which should be arriving today), and my 2 yr old 12" Powerbook, I have no other Macs younger than 5yrs, I have these collecting dust in one location or another:

Mac Plus (w/ 20MB SCSI HD!)
Some sort of LC
Powerbook 1400c
Bondi iMac 233Mhz G3
iBook SE G3 - 466Mhz

Recently I sold my Power Mac Dual G5 to get a MacBook Pro. I chucked the MacBook Pro on eBay at the start of this week though when I went to a store and played around with the new Core 2 Duo iMac, I really had to have 1! So in the house at the moment we current have my computer an iMac 20" C2D and my GFs iMac G5.

iBook G4
PowerBook G3 (Pismo)
Power Mac 7500 (with G3 upgrade)
Performa 630

The MacBook is the only I use on a day to day basis. The iBook is my backup, but with only 256 MB RAM it makes Tiger a bit funky. We have to defect Pismos, but there should be enough parts to make one functioning. The 7500 and Performa should work, but I haven't fired them up in a long, long time...
