I remember Mac Addict coming out in the UK.
Despite it being much more expensive that magazines like Mac World, I did enjoy it's rebellious nature when they printed articles like how to Hack your Mac. Something Apple would never agree to.
They showed you how to pull off a jumper block on a G3 and boost it's speed considerably by reconfiguring the pins.
How to swap jumpers on a board to fit a desktop mac motherboard into a tower.
Yes a great magazine and you didn't have to go and buy expensive CPU upgrade boards.
In your introduction of new users, you queried Rob's favourite Mac being a PowerMac3,3 and that'd be the G4 Gigabit
I'm more partial to the the 3,5 QuickSilver 2x1Ghz myself, but the Gigabit is a nice machine.
