It's funny how almost everything changed after the original iMac...

Odd to think how, one day, all the latest stuff will also look antiquated.

Then why is it referred to as the second generation ipod? were there any other differences besides a larger hard-drive?

Are we looking at the same picture? It goes 2001 iPod 1st Gen, then later in the series, its goes 2003 iPod 3rd Gen. The 2nd Gen iPod had the touch-wheel and a cover for the firewire ports, but design wise, looks exactly the same.

The prettiest Mac would have to be the Mac mini. The perfect, no frills no muss, supercomputer.

Nice reminder of all the old stuff I used to have. But I'm dismayed by the omission of the venerable IIfx! I know it's form factor evolution, and the form was the same as the II, but internally it was a fairly significant improvement.

I can see the original Mac (1984), also I believe the first Mac II (ans IIx) shared the same 6 slots case as the Mac IIfx, but I'm not sure.

I loved my IIfx! Man I thought that was POWER at the time. :D
It was power at the time, and it stayed a great machine for a pretty long time as well.

Anyone still have any of these old Macs around that they use? I'd be interested to hear about the oldest regularly used Mac here in the forum.

Can anyone confirm that the second "1990 Macintosh Classic" is in fact a Mac IIsi??? Our family owned one of those. Sweet machines back then. Although expensive as hell (more than $4000 with monitor).

Everymac.com has a more complete list, although the images aren't anywhere near as nice.

Good find.
