"Clearout time. Is anyone interested in some 7220s? They don't boot up due to dead batteries. They take 4.5v batteries, not the 3.6v kind."

"Any Sydney-siders want a Green jellybean iMac (no HD, CD doesn't work), a working Performa 580CD, or a Personal LaserWriter? All free to anyone who wants them. Pick up only in Crows Nest/Wollstonecraft - if no bites by 25 March, I'll be…"

What's your favorite Mac of all time?
Canberra, Australia
I first started using a Mac in 1986 when the company I started working for had two Plus's and two SE's (with 20MB hard drives!) networked using something called TOPS and connected to a ... (wait for it) laser printer. I learnt how to use the Macs never having used any sort of computer before and became the office guru. I bought a Mac IIsi when they came out, and followed this with a variety of work loaned Macs up till a Quadra 840AV. Then there was the dark period. I started working for a company that was exclusively Windows and this was the around the time that Apple seemed to have completely lost its way. I bought a PC for home and gave away all my Mac gear - Apple scanners, Quicktake cameras, the IIsi, etc. but I kept my Newton MessagePad 120 and 2100 :) I passed up OS X intro for XP and it wasn't until I needed a laptop that I thought about getting a Mac again - the iBook with 10.3 turned me back around and was shortly followed by a Mac mini, then an intel iMac which is my main computer today.

Welcome JonG! So are you going to hunt down those old models you used to own?

You must be kidding about 30" displays and Mac Pros -- it will be many years before I would consider them cheap. I'm surprised what G5s like mine still get three years later. Too bad for us collectors that Macs keep their value for such a long time.

I like the "Macintosh Heaven" banner and logo.
