I voted 6-8

Apple Mac 512k-given to me by my uncle, havent really used it that much.

Apple IIgs-not really a Mac but I ran System 6 on it

Apple Mac Performa 638-actually a pretty nice system, I ran all the way up to OS 8.1 on it, ocassionally still used it. Its only fault was that its 68040 lacked an FPU.

Apple Mac Performa 6220-Pretty slow system, but I love the sound this sound this thing makes when I turn it on. My favorite tone by far. A friend gave me this system, and I am using it as a server running 0S 9.1 surprisingly, although it is very very slow.

iMac DV SE 400- A Great machine, a fanstastic system, I use it daily, running OS X. I will delete OS 9 off this system very soon.

iBook 500 Dual USB CD-RW- Another fantastic system, This machine is great. I use it all the time. Running OS X.

iMac G4 800mhz Superdrive- By Far the best thing I have ever owned. Their are not enough words to describe how great this system is. This Machine is the best thing to come from Apple ever. Utterly Fantastic. Running OS X.


Macintosh SE 30 (in 1991)
LC 475 (in 1994)
Performa 6200 (in 1997)

Macintosh Plus (Still have, still works)
Mac Classic (Sold)
Mac Classic (We had two)
Mac Performa 250 (Still have, still works like a trooper)
Mac LC (Still have, needs a working monitor)
PowerBook 100 (Sold)
PowerBook 140 (Still have, don't use much)
PowerMacintosh 5500 (briefly)

[Large gap in time here, I know but my dad was using the PowerBook 190 until last year, when his school bought him a clamshell iBook]

Clamshell iBook (Dad's current laptop)
iMac G3 350 (Dad's current computer)
iMac G3 350 (My current server/Mum's computer)
PowerBook G3 Wallstreet (broken screen now, since my brother stepped on it :mad:)
PowerBook G4 Aluminium (My current machine)

The thing I always found most impressive was how much use my dad was able to squeeze out of a PowerBook 140. It's so amazingly old nowadays, yet he was using it as his primary machine, quite happily, until he got the Clamshell and iMac. Sometimes it's just fun to plug the machines in and see the old things whirring away.

The Performa 250 was my brother's when I had the LC (both were colour, both had HDDs. The Performa had a smaller screen, and could render far more colours, but otherwise, quite similar). I remember at the age of 7 networking the two. That's just incredible to me.


My then girlfriend and now wife got me hooked on Macs. I couldn't even find the power switch on her IIvi but overnight became a computer geek. But the poll said how many have I owned so here go:

6400/180 Performa (added hard drive where zip went)
G3/350 (overclocked, extra hard drive, zip and 17" studio display)
G4 Quicksilver 733, now 933 Apple processor, Radeon 9000 128Mb, 1.12 GB RAM, 2x120GB 7200rpm plus external 160GB, LG GSA-4163B burner, zip, cooling mods, 17" digital LCD...

Apple, I've got the cash and want a G5, update the Powermacs already!!!!!! :)

Quadra 630
Power Tower 180 clone
Sawtooth 400Mhz, my current machine.

Next will be a G5 tower of some sort, depending on what Apple makes in the next 3 months.


Mac of the SubGenius! :-)
In order of acquisition...

Apple IIc - First Apple ever. Used to practice BASIC programming when I was a kid in the 80s. :p
Performa 6220CD - First Power Mac, but a disappointment of a machine. :(
Quadra 650 - Great 68K Mac I acquired for free 2 yrs ago. Currently hosting my homepage with MacHTTP.
Performa 6300 - Given to me from a friend. Seems as though this was a Performa 631CD with a 6300 logic board (case still has 631CD name, but Sys Profiler said 6300). Talk about luck! Given to a friend to tinker with.
StarMax 4000 MT - Cool PPC Mac clone tower from Motorola. Running Debian "sarge." Traded a PC for this one.
PowerBook Duo 230 - Neat little 68030 notebook I just got from a friend who was going to send it to the dumpster after getting a PowerBook G4. Still deciding whether to keep it. :p

Hopefully I can add one more when I have enough cash. And this will be a new one. :p


I, personally, have had 22, but that does NOT include the computers my parents had when i was too young to buy one myself. it also does not include the PCs i have had.


* Graphite iBook SE G3@366MHz
* 12" PowerBook G4@867MHz
* 15" PowerBook G4@1.33GHz

And some older machines: a Macintosh Classic and an LC II (with an a4 screen).

Since my first post in this thread, I've also had an iBook 12" G3/800 (now my gf's), the PowerBook 15" G4/1.33 and the iBook 12" G4/1.2. Which'd put me into the >15 category now. But I can't change my answer from 10-15 to that, of course. ;)
