Sounds like an Apple Museum...what is the price for a one-day ticket?


Hehe. I don't like to throw stuff out. I don't have any G5 machines though. Anyone care to donate one? :(

I grew up using an Apple IIe. Good memories.

In the early 90's I bought an LC secondhand... not the best introduction to the Macintosh, but at least I learned a lot. The day I upgraded from 2 mb to 4 mb of ram..... oh man that was the day. I was finally able to play Civilization on the whole screen!!

Ive got quite a few,
2 Powerbook 1400's, one a 133 doesnt boot, the other a 166 does boot
A Lombard G3 Powerbook - needs a new battery, but otherwise ok
A Beige G3 - works, but sitting in a box not being used
A Blue and White G3 overclocked to 400mhz.
A Graphite Sawtooth G4 - Flashed nvidia card for QE/CI and a quicksilver 933mhz Cpu, running at 700mhz. Had to break off an ide chain for that. but totally worth it!
And my hackintosh..

I used to have an LC3 and a all in one of some sort i think it was an lc575 but i cant recall, i was only young!

I still have my old Powerbook 3400c 180MHz (upgraded to 48MB of ram, and 4GB hard drive) in perfect working order! Unbelievable how long these machines last...

Currently I have my 2nd Mac computer I ever owned, a Macbook 2GHz :D

If I where you I'd get one asap as they'll soon be collectors items. Then your collection is complete :-)


I used to have these apple systems:

Mac 9600 (Mach5)
Beige G3

Non-apple systems nowadays (still) in my possesion

Sinclair ZX spectrum 48K (Z80)
Oric Atmos 48K (6502)
Tanburry Newbrain (Z80)
Sinclair QL (with various extra bits like diskinterface etc...) (68008)
Acorn Archimedes 410 (upgraded with ARM3, VIDC enhancer etc...)(ARM3 now)
Acorn Risc PC 700 (upgraded to StrongARM Risc PC; still in use) (Twin CPU system very advanced at its release in 1994. StrongARM 110 + IBM/Cyrix 5x86 PC cpu, I sold the 5x86-2nd processor later because I'd gotten that Duron PC)
Compaq Deskpro2000 (I think it has AMDK6)
Psion Series 5 8MB (ARM7100)
ECS I-buddy 901, notebook-like desktop PC (the one with Celeron 1GHz; my mom uses this ATM)
Homebuild PC P4 3GHz s478 (win xp machine)
Homebuild PC P4 3GHz s775 (OSX86 machine)

I occasionally collect 80's systems when I have some cash to spare.

I used to have these systems as well

Homebuild PC PII 400MHz (used to be my Linux Suse 6-server, router) replaced with small ADSL-router.
Homebuild AMD XP2400 system s-A
Homebuild AMD Duron system (cpu got replaced with Thunderbird 1200)
several homebuild 386SX, 486SX, 486DX-33 systems (I avoided PC's throughout the 90's until I got that AMD duron system)

Acorn Archimedes A305 (the original Arthur machine, I later replaced the Arthur ROMS with RISC OS 2, ARM2 12MHz)
Acorn A3010 (Amiga 500 look-a-like Acorn system, ARM250)
Acorn A4000 (A3010/3020 in desktop case, ARM250 cpu)
Acorn A5000 (Acorn's topmodel before Risc PC release, ARM3 25MHz Later models contained ARM3 33MHz)
Acorn Risc PC 600 MK1 (ARM610) (Early models had RISC OS on disk instead of in ROM; 8-bit audio user upgradable to 16-bit, MK2 models had OS in ROMs and 16-bit audio standard)

Commodore 64 (6510)
Amiga 500 (68000, replaced with 68010)
Amiga 2000 (upgraded to Amiga 2500 model with 68030 cpu, twin SCSI HDD etc...)
Amiga 600 (68000)

Atari 130XE (6502)
Atari PC4 (80286 AT clone from Atari, it was one o/t fastest 286 at 16MHz while most where 12MHz)

Sinclair ZX81 (Z80)

Psion II LZ (Hitachi HD6303X)
Psion Series 5MX (ARM7100 33MHz, my dad got this for his birthday from me)

Oric 1 16K (6502)

HP Jornada 568 (StrongARM-1110 the model right before XScale got release. The last HP model safter that they took over Compaq and ditched Jornada models over Ipaq) (My stepsister uses this now with GPS-antenna)

Asus 620 BT (Xscale PXA255) Used this as my main GPS system until I threw it out the window (display was broken afterwards :) )


To Bart... and your wife thinks YOU have a problem? Sure.

I probably have forgotten one or two systems but this the majority of them.

Regards.

And seeing as people around here are so interested in Rhapsody, here are a couple screen shots of my 8600...

WOW

That's all I can say...

A few years ago I used to have an old Quadra 605, running System 7.something, but somehow it accidentally got donated to charity when I was cleaning old stuff (Got put in the wrong box...) I wish I still had it...

Now I've got my MacBook, and my PC, and I'm very interested in Classic and A/UX emulation, so I use SheepShaver and Basilisk II and Mini vMac. I haven't had any luck with A/UX yet though... I may want to try it in SheepShaver (does it run on PPC?) I already tried the other two.

I've got an iMac 333, which is currently trashed (Bad Linux bootloader accident), which I haven't gotten to fix, my Powerbook G4 (final edition - the better screened model).

PS - This thread has officially made me go to my iMac and get to work on it xD!

Got an old Macintosh SE. I fire it up just about weekly. Still works like a champ.

My dad paid about 5 GRAND for it when I was a kid. It's got (count 'em) TWO floppy drives and (...gasp...) FOUR MEGAbytes of RAM. Back in the day when the most hardcore guys had, maybe, a meg and a half.

Can't stand that it's worth not much more than nostalgia almost 20 years later...so he won't let me turn hus $5000 super-machine into an aquarium :D

And a Performa 476. Got 12 megs this one.

Oh yeah. Got a Lombard Powerbook, too. But it's running Tiger...like a dream!

My first Mac (and first computer!) was a LC with a 16Mhz '020, 2MB of memory and a 40MB disk. Good times on that with classic games. Looking back, that was all I really needed for typing papers and whatnot.
Next Mac was a 6360 with a 160mhz 603, 16MB (later upgraded to 32MB) and a 1.2GB hard drive. Originally running 7.6.1, later 9.1 (slooooow)
After that was the UMAX c600, 240mhz 603, 48MB and a 6.4GB disk running 8.1 and later 9.1. That was a fun machine, right now I'm working on rigging a new heatsink for the CPU so I can install 8.6. I'd like to get more memory for it at some point too, at least to upgrade to 64. Preferably 128 or max it out at 144!
My favourite Mac is my Powerbook 3400c. 240mhz 603, 144(!)MB memory and a 3GB disk. I still use it occasionally to play old games. Running 9.2.2 now, but I might install 8.6 when I have a chance to backup my stuff.
Some of my best memories of Macs are playing Warcraft 2 on the 6360- I made tons of maps and campaigns back in the day. I moved to Starcraft with the c600, I still have some of my scenarios somewhere. The 3400c came with Photoshop 2.5 installed by the previous owner so I had a good time honing my artistic skills.
I also have Rev. A iMac guts, but that hardly counts- no skins or monitor and the CD-ROM's dead so I can't install anything. Other than that it works fine, as soon as I find a working optical drive it's getting 8.6 or 9.2.
