Just wondering what sort of Mac is used by most Mac users...
well....I have a Tower G4/533 MHZ and an iMac 800
the first one runs on OS 9 only and the iMac of course on OS X and classic.
Power Mac for work and the iMac more for pleasure
I've got my Cube (G4 450, 80 gb hd, 1.5 gb ram, Radeon) with a 15'Apple Studio Display, and I love it. It's a great machine, but it's getting a little long in the tooth. Instead of junking it or trading it in, though, I think I'm going to take a ride on the upgrade train. I already upgraded the RAM and the HD (replaced it with the stock 20), but I think a GeForce3 is in order (for QE), as is a G4 500 DP upgrade from Sonnett. I think that'll give the old girl a few more years. Just can't bear the thought of losing her quite yet. She's my first PowerMac, you know.
I have a g4 imac, combo drive with 512 ram with OS 10.1.5
and a g3 imac, 400mhz, 320 ram with 10.1.2 (not connected to the net)
I used my g3 imac a mp3 player
LC II - maxed out with 10MB RAM
iMac 233 Bondi. Still hanging in there for all things www.
Powerbook Pismo 500. Great machine which I hope will get a bit of kick from Jaguar... Maybe save me a hardware upgrade for another 6 months or a year... We'll see.
The funny thing is that a teenage nephew of mine came around the other week and thought the LC was coolest and newest. He couldn't believe that a computer so slim and minimal was almost as old as he was.
PowerMac DP 800 with 80 gig drive and 512 MB mem.
Along with a Mac Classic, 2x Mac SE, Mac IIfx, Mac IIsi, LC III, Performa 450, Performa 5300, Quadra 800, PowerMac 8200, and a Duo 230 with dock.
As per the spec in my signature...
I have a rev a Tibook 500 with 768MB RAM, and a puny little 20GB hard drive.
Hey, mmmdreg, maybe you should have added a G4 Cube in your list...wsteineker is not alone!

30GB Hard Drive
Extras: Original 15 inch graphite translucent Apple LCD Monitor
Non-Apple accessories: Epson 880, Lacie CD-RW
iBook Firewire (Graphite)
128MB RAM (Maybe...)
10GB Hard Drive
Non-Apple accessories: None
iMac Bondi Blue

4GB Hard Drive (I should realy update this!)
Extras: Apple Pro Keyboard, Apple Pro Mouse
Non-Apple accessories: Epson 740i
Fear the King.
YES!!! Thank you King Cobra! I knew I wasn't the only Cube owner out there. Everyone thinks I'm crazy for having one when I could have gotten a used tower for the same price, but I just LOVE it. I guess you have to own one to know what I mean...
I run a...
Rev A TiBok 500, with 512 ram, 20Gb HD and a Maxtor 80Gb firewire drive, pro-mouse, pro-keyboard, wacom tab, sony LCD display for dual monitors, soundsticks and isub, epson printer.
Runs OSX natively now..... I made the switch at the weekend after having OSX as my occasional OS, because I've just got PS 7, Illustrator 10, FCP 3, AE 5.5, Flash MX, GoLive 6, Indesign 2, Office X, Dreamweaver MX and MAYA.... so I decided that as I can get the majority of the software I use, now runs in OSX that I'd make the jump...... I'm just waiting for Director to really make the transaction complete!!
This is all due to be upgraded around about Jan to feb 03, I have $10k budget so hopefully MWSF 03 will be releasing some 'Pukka' machines......
Now where's ensign...... his collection is like huge!!!
I have a rev. c TiBook 800MHz with 768MB of RAM... I have kept the stock 40GB drive inside of it, at least until my new 60GB arrives. I will decide once the new 60GB arrives if I keep the 40GB inside or not. Right now, it looks like I will keep the 40 inside and make the 60 an external. Either way, I will have a total of 170GB attachable to the TiBook.
Not too shabby.
My machine is pretty stocked right now. IMO
768 Megs ram
40gig HD, 20Gig HD IDE drives
9.1 gig UW SCSI drive
Adaptec 2940UW SCSI card
Radeon 32MB ddr (soon to be GeForce4)
Digidesign AudioMedia III Digital Audio Card
CDRW (soon to be superdrive)
10.1.4 (soon to be 10.2, I have a friend...)
I plan on having this machine last me another 2 years or so. I'm going to try and make my drives all scsi, but that requires money that I don't have.
My main machine is my Rev. A TiBook 500...I still love it even thought the video sucks when compared to newer versions...
I have a G4 400 PowerMac at work...a bit slow yes...but it is AGP and does the job quite well enough...
I also have an old Motorola Starmax 4000 somewhere around here....it's got a 200 mhz 604e processor if I'm not mistaken....pretty useless....
The video card may suck when compared to newer versions (shame i can't play RTCW ), but it still has a bit of life in it. I've just spent most of the past weekend getting fragged in Q3A over the university LAN with a bunch of friends. The frame rates are perfectly respectable.
I still want a rev. c model though
733 Quicksilver, Lime 333 iMac, PowerPC 6320CD, Mac LCII, and Apple IIc

no kidding....I figure that by the time I'm in the market for a new machine...we may possibly be seeing them come with 128 MB VRAM...
I'd be hella happy to know I held out...he he he
I've got a few macs...
G3 iMac (Snow)
G3 iMac (Graphite)
Starmax 3000/200 with a G3 proccessor in it.
Macintosh Quadra 800
Power Macintosh 6100/60
Power Macintosh G4 Titanium PowerBook
and a Embedded Linux System on a G4 in my Lexus.
Here are mine.
iMac 600 SE Flower Power.
1 Gig of Ram
40 Gig Hard Drive
External 60 Gig
iBook 600 Combo Drive
384 MB Ram
20 Gig Hard Drive
Epson Stylus C60, Lexmark Z45, Cannon Scanner. Linksys Router.
All in all it is a nice little network. I connect my iMac to my Home Theater for 700 watts of MP3's heaven though.
No kidding I'd be pretty darn pleased with a portable with 128 MB VRAM!!!
How long do you think it might be before we start seeing that sort of power on a portable mac? I doubt i'd be able to hold out as long as it's likely to take unfortunately... perhaps when (if) the tibooks (or powerbook G5 by then?) have a geforce 4go in them.... *drool*
britboy, need a towel?
I am pretty sure that somebody will be buying a PBG5 well after the PowerMacs are updated to G5. I wonder who wants a G5 that bad...
Fear the King.
Again, another poll with missing options.
I have a PowerMac, TiPB and a PowerComputing Power Tower. I mostly use the Macs and I'm giving the clone to my parents, since they don't have a computer and they'll only be using it for internet and email, it should do them fine. Eventually they'll want to upgrade, I'm sure and I'll be able to steer them to a new iMac or iBook.
Okay, may as well throw in my load too...
PowerMac G3 Tower
iMac (bondi rev.B)
iBook (clamshell tangerine)
Newton MessagePad 130
Newton MessagePad 2100
Okay, so the Newtons aren't Macs... blah blah blah!
Dear God man, we have to get you out of the house more often Seriously that is quite a collection. Do they all run? How do you delegate time to the systems. For Example. If I stll had my old blueberry iBook, I would probably do more on that than any of my other Macs. I loved that toliet seat looking, 50 pound, purse....he,he...
