Before my macbook, my only Mac (in the whole family) is a original Clamshell 300mhz iBook from 2000 with 5 gigs of hard disk, airport card and 300ish megs of ram. Recently my dad (who bought it, hated OS9 and has felt like a sucker since) asked me to put OSX on there for him to use. It now run Panther well...honestly its only problem is the 800x600 screen. Hope it gets him to get a newer Mac.

First Mac was a Mac Plus :happymac: with 4MB of RAM :king: and a floppy drive that did not like to work

My next working mac was a PowerMac 8500 -- that computer was great up until the processor died on it
----My neighbors also gave me an Apple ][GS which refused to run


Also had a Performa (was either a 630 or 640) which ran pretty well

Got a PowerMac G4 a few years after they came out

Also bought a G3 Blue and White tower to toy around with

;)

Got a Performa 5200CD lying around; I'd mess around with it, but I don't have a keyboard that I can use to turn it on...

I have a black and white Mac Classic in my basement. I had a Starmax 603e clone, but I tossed it. I think there's an Apple IIe down there somewhere. I have the receipt for it ($3000).

I have an iBook Clamshell of 1999 with 6GB hard drive and 320 MB of main memory. I want to sell it to my sister and buy a new macbook in about 3 weeks.
Oh, I've also an old Macintosh Quadra 840AV, but I haven't a video adaptor.

I really like the look of the clamshell ibook. If your sister doesn't want it, I might be interested :happymac:

The only Mac that I have. Its an iBook G3 500MHZ, 256MB, 10GB, Combo Drive. Its my second Apple computer, but the first Apple computer ive had that runs OSX. It currently has OSX 10.3.9. Before it, I had an iBook G4, 933MHZ, 640MB, 40GB, Combo Drive. I traded some PC for it, the iBook had a bad hard drive. So took it home, took a 40gig I had laying around, and put it in there. Solved, it worked, but no OSX, and no money. So I put Linux on it. Then the combo drive ate a CD, reset the PRAM to get it out, and messed up the operating system. Then realized the combo drived was done. Since I really got it for free, I traded it for the iBook G3. The guy says the G4 has more issues than the combo drive, but he is looking foward to fixing it, and I am happy I now have a Mac to play with.

A couple years ago, I got rid of my IBM XT that my uncle gave to me.

Now i'm deciding... I can save up money and buy a used Powerbook G4, at least 1GHZ. Or I can save up money and buy a cheaper widescreen laptop and throw OSX86 on it. It would just have to be something thats fully compatable and would do everything that OSX on the Powerbook can do(photoshop, garageband, that kind of {censored}).

Hey de-rail, do you still have the Mac Plus? Id like a nice Micro ITX project for OSX86. :)

oh geez, i used to have an old Performa 6200CD running a PowerPC 603e@75 Mhz, 8 MB of RAM, 1 MB of VRAM, 1GB HD, 8X CD-ROM, 15in CRT. All I got running on was System 7.5.5. on its final days after it kept giving me that stupid Logic Board crash and the Bomb. (does anybody remember the bomb). I should have grabbed one of those processor upgrade boards (if i could find one), maxed out the ram and made it a server but its probably being used for scraped parts now. Should have saved the cds though. Now where is that old copy of system 7.5.3....

I have a Color Classic and a G3 333 iMac running OS X 10.2.8 and OS 9.2.2.

I'm frustrated right now though - the mac won't boot from CD-Rs (no problem reading them in OS X) so I can't install Panther. I need to find some original Panther CDs.

Hee hee. I had a Macintosh SE/30 for two weeks. The motherboard on it failed and I had to send it to the dumpster. I did salvage any of the guts of the computer such as the puny 40 MB harddisk.
