6 machines, all alive
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 14, '03 01:48:02PM

My machine-park is all up and running on Mac OS X. A
Cube, PowerMac G3 350, iBook rev A, iBook Keylime, iBook
500 CD and my PowerBook G4. Rob says; (quote) "what a
bunch of wackos mac users are, imagine any p.c. user
owning NINE machines!" you should know that rob has
himself a small machine-park too!

Well, I don't consider one desktop and two laptops a machine park ;-), but it does seem that the Mac users I know, in general, "collect" more machines than do my Windows-using friends. It's just something about the hardware; I'd still love to add a 10th Anniversary Mac and a Cube to my house. I have no practical use for either, but they're both very cool looking pieces of hardware.

Hehehe; We've got over 30 Macs and about a dozen PC's (and 4
Newtons) in various states of operation, dating back to a true
beige 512K model.

We get them from customers when they upgrade. Some of them
are only good for parts, but most still run if the PRAM batteries
are replaced.

Currently 6 of the Macs and 3 of the PC's, plus 1 Newton and 1
Handspring Visor, are in active use.

Only 2 Macs, but...
Authored by: RideMan on Apr 23, '03 12:07:53AM

Dual G4 Mac, plus an LC-III sitting under the desk running Localtalk Bridge. That's it for the Macintoshes. But the rest of the computer collection includes...

  • My Apple IIgs which was my primary computer until very recently
  • An enhanced Apple //e with a flaky hard drive controller
  • An older Apple ][e set up to control a toy Ferris wheel
  • Another IIgs that I am hoping to use as a terminal for the G4
  • An Apple Lisa 2/5 that hit the "Y2K" problem in 1997

I think there is another Apple ][ around here someplace not accounted for in this list...the Amiga is pretty much dismantled at this point.
