New poll: Which is your favorite Mac?
Authored by: wozjob on May 05, '12 07:14:20PM

Has to be my trusty Quicksilver 2002 (933 G4).
Though it's more than 10yrs. old it still runs like a champ. The original HD crashed at 9 yrs. I had to re-install my Adobe apps on the new HD which required booting into OS9 so that I could install the original apps (ai 4.0 & ps 3.5) and then run through the subsequent upgrades to get to OSX. Around 6/11 it was giving me fits, boot chime no video, then no boot chime - nothing. I tried everything I could including a new battery but she wouldn't go. I was planning on buying a new imac anyway so I bought a new mid 2011 21.5' 2.5 imac. I cloned the HD w/10.5 over to a partition on the new machine so I could still use ai 10 & ps CS via Rosetta. A couple weeks later I figured what the heck lets see if she'll boot up. Hazah it lives!! I put the old "crashed" original HD back in on whim and although it made a lot of racket I could read & write to it. I love that machine!!!!
