About My Interest In Retro Macs
The father of my best friend in 5th grade got an early Mac. At that point I drank the Cool Aid and wanted to be part of the club of Mac owners. I settled for substitutes for many years but finally was able to make the dream a reality as an adult.
For space reasons I'm actually not much of a Mac collector. In the past ten years I've had Mac IIci and Apple IIgs systems as collectables but needed to part with them. For regular use, I've progress through Quadra 800, PowerMac 6100, Performa 6400, PowerBook G3 Series, and iBook G3 (dual USB). I currently use a PowerBook G4, which I guess is getting close to retro status.
Related to Mac, I own a NeXTstation Color Turbo system which I really need to turn on and make sure it's still working. Coveted but with no chance of purchasing due to insanely expense when I was in college, I picked it up for around $100 a few years ago.
I'm currently thinking about picking up an older PowerBook to pair with my QuickTake 100 but haven't decided which single PowerBook would be best.
Most of my hobby energies go towards comics, anime and sci-fi topics.
