My history with Macs and Apple

My first experience with an Apple computer was back in 3rd grade, about 1980 or so. Our school got a few Apple II's and the "privileged" kids got to stay after school and use them for learning and play. I was one of these, and was instantly hooked. My parents soon bought me an Apple IIc so I could learn and play at home as well (this was about 1984 or so I believe). Throughout elementary and junior high school, we used Apple II's (first II+'s, then later IIe's) in the classroom.

In high school I had my first exposure to Macintosh, when our lab got a few Macs (mostly 512's and Pluses) and a LaserWriter, all hooked together using AppleTalk. This was in 1986.

It wasn't until I went off to college, in 1990, that I got my very own Mac, a Mac Classic, purchased at the college bookstore using my student discount.

This Mac served me well for a few years, until I eventually replaced it with a Mac IIsi I bought "new in box" from a second-hand source. This was about 1992 or 1993.

Today I have two Macs that I use daily: a MacBook Pro 15" (2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo Penryn) which is my "daily use" machine, and a 1.42 GHz PowerPC Mac mini acting as my server for email, web, file sharing, and iTunes.
