1993, it was my mothers former LC. She got a new Performa 475, and I took over the LC. Heaven! :) But I had of course been wanting my own mac since 1984.
How many Macs do you own?
15. Mac Plus (an upgraded 512ke), Mac SE, Portable, 2 Mac II's, Mac IIci, Powerbook 540, Powerbook 1400c, iBook G3 300 Mhz, iMac DV 400Mhz, PowerMac G4, PowerMac G4 Cube, Mac Mini C2D, MacBook Pro 15" Alu, MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (+Newton 120, iPod, iPod nano, iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4 & iPad)
What's your favorite Mac of all time?
How did you hear about RetroMacCast?
I found it on iTunes searching for "Mac" in the podcast dir.
Well, you have to be careful with this collection thing. One moment you have just a few, the next it's got all out of hand!
Luckily, the lack of room will make me become very picky what I get next.... hmmmm more laptops :-)
Your profile says you have a Plus, but you're not certain. If it is a Plus it usually has that stamped on the front. Even without Plus written on it, it is possible it is an older Mac that was upgraded to a Plus I guess.
Yeah, I found some decent deals on Ebay, and from a gut locally who sold his entire collection to me for $35 (that included 6 working computers and lots of peripherals). I haven't gotten a "new" Mac since last spring, and I've had some of them die on me, and sold a few others, but still have most of them.
Thank you for the very kind comment. I hope I did the group justice. I think we all feel about our Macs the same way, and keep them useful as much as possible.
I see you have a Newton, do you use it? If so, what system do you run it on?
I've never tried to use a Newton with a machine older than a Performa. I did see a website someone here has, and he has his Newton connected to his SE. And, his SE connected to his home network. If I can remember who it is, I'll send you his name and you can connect. If, you haven't already found him that is.
Here is the link about the networked SE, and the Newton. The members name is James Wages and he has a blog on the 'Blogs' page called the "The SE that does it all." Also this is the link to an interview he did about his Network.
I hope this helps, please let me know how it goes.
