    A few Macs, over a quarter century... My wife's Macs aren't "mine" so they aren't listed, but her list is pretty comparable (except for the secondary machines which are shared).

    Main machines:

    1981-1985 Apple ][+ Stolen.

    1984-1985 128k Macintosh Stolen.
    (...a long technological gap...)
    1993-1995 PowerBook 180c "Paabu-chan" Died, gave guts to a friend.

    1995-1997 PowerBook 550c "Gogo-chan" Upgraded CPU to Power PC, gave away to a friend.

    1997- . . . . Power Mac 9600/300 "Sunadori" Donated to my wife's office, where it still (2007) runs ancient peripherals.

    1999-2003 Power Mac G4 "Bol'janon" Sold to a used computer dealer.

    2003-2006 iMac G4/800 17-Inch (Flat Panel) "Namegon" Gave to my wife, later sold.

    2005- . . . . Power Mac G5 dual 2.7GHz "Kurita-kun" Still in service.

    Secondary machines:

    2000- . . . . iBook SE (Graphite) "Satsuki" Still sitting on a shelf somewhere "just in case" we need OS 9...

    2002- . . . . iBook "White Doll" Gave to relatives in Tokyo so we can iChat. Still in service with them.

    2003- . . . . PowerBook G4 12" "Psyga" Still in service.

    Non-computer machines:

    1996- ???? Newton MessagePad 130 Bought used from a friend. (...but where did it go? Did I give it away?)

    1997-1997 Newton MessagePad 2000 Gave to a friend in the US.

    1997-1998 Newton MessagePad 2100 Sold to a friend in New Zealand.

    Hey, that's a lotta Apple stuff! Are we making Steve happy or what?

    For me and family:

    1989: IIci--used for about 10 years and then gave away to a friend. If it had a CD drive we would probably have kept using it...

    1992 or there-about: second-hand SE, I think. we used that for a few years and then sold it again

    ....Too many years of winblows....

    2003: 12" PB G4-using it right now. Awesome machine, I really love it for the size and weight. Had all specs maxed when I purchased and since then upgraded to Dual-layer 8x DVD burner, etc. and 80 GB Harddrive. It's still going strong, although in the last year I've been starting to feel the processor under-power blues as some apps and stuff can't run on it, so prob. in a bit I'll get another one (maybe the "super-Mobile" that's coming soon) The size and form factor still get impressed comments even now...

    2005: Brother buys 17" G4 PB. He was the one that got us to switch to Win in the first place--major Mac victory...

    2006: Bought my mom a 17" C2Duo iMac (I use it a lot myself, too... ahem ). This is another home-run from Apple. The form factor and design are awesome, and the total silence of the computer is nothing short of completely amazing...

    Next: Trying to converty my dad's main computer over from a Dell--the Dell is still fairly new so it might be a few years yet, but w/ him getting hooked on the iMac, it shouldn't be too difficult

    The recent long lists make this list look rather inadequate, but here goes:


    - Mac Classic II 16Mhz 680?0 (1993-1994) - sold

    - LC 630 + 14inch screen 40Mhz 68030 (1994-1996) - now with my grandmother

    [96-99 - Hiatus for clone - see below]

    - Blueberry iBook 300MHz G3 (1999?-2001) - now with my mother, but screen has gone completely red!

    - Titanium PowerBook 400MHz G4 (2001-2005) - got dropped and replaced on insurance by my wife's below

    - Aluminium PowerBook 15-inch 1.25GHz G4 (2004- ) - my main machine

    - Aluminium PowerBook 12-inch 1.5Ghz G4 (2005- ) - my wife's machine (but borrowed for trips away)


    - BBC Micro B 128k (1981- ) - my parents still have this but haven't turned it on in at least 12 years!

    Non-Apple Mac clone:

    - Umax Apus 2000 160Mhz PPC (1996-1999?) - was given to small company I am director of and cremated when office burnt down in Edinburgh Cowgate fire in 2003(?)

    Non-Mac Apple stuff:

    - Stylewriter II (1993-?) - gave to my mother before it died

    - Airport Base station (original flying saucer) - died

    - Airport Express x 2 - still use

    My alternate route to being a Mac User (and developer)

    Atari 1040ST (±1986)

    Original NeXT Cube (1990, dropped this one for the next item)

    NeXT Cube 33MHz with Dimension (1994, currently mothballed)

    Mac G4 QuickSIlver 867MHz (2001, dropped this one for the next item)

    Mac G4 Cube 500Mhz (2003, because it is 100% silent and the QS was more windtunnel-like)

    PowerBook G4 Alu (2004, I traded this one in for the next one)

    iBook G3 (the PowerBook has current leakage issues when connected to a nongrounded main)

    iBook G4 (2005, this was an Apple-provided replacement for the G3 which had technical troubles)

    MacBook Core Duo (2006, replacement for the iBook)

    Intel Mac (developer kit)

    Intel iMac (trade in for developer kit, I have given this one away to a family member who is now slowly migrating from Win to Mac)

    Current: Waiting for Leopard to mothball the Cube and start running my OS X Server on new Intel hardware.

    So, I've been using NEXTSTEP since 1990 until today ;-)

    1987 Mac SE20 - Not sure if it still works but i still have it, I gave it to my mom years ago then it made its way out to the garage.

    2004 iMac blueberry G3 333MHz 160mb memory 6GB HD - Saved it from certain doom, A friend of mine tried to throw it in a dumpster because the CD Rom didn't work & it had no working keyboard.

    2005 ipod Nano 4GB Black- My early xmas gift to me & it still works like a champ.

    2006 MacBook Pro 17" 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo 120 GB HD _ My current machine but got it a week before the Core Duo 2 came out, the salesman didn't tell me about that. Anyway, I got sick of Wind D'Ohs! issues & with the launch of upcoming Vista I did want to take the risk.

    1995: PowerBook 160: Ran Word 5.1, one of the best versions, ever.

    1997: PowerBook 3400c: 200 MHz, 33.3 modem, and thousands of colors!

    1999: Lombard, 333 MHz: Possibly my favorite laptop.

    2001: Titanium, 400 MHz: Not much of jump up, IMO, but nice screen.

    2004: PB 12", 1.33 GHz, very nice improvement over the Ti, solid feeling.

    2006: MacBook 2.0 GHz, One of Apple's best?
