Old At Heart: The Love of Vintage Macs

Bearing an obsession for Macs is hardly abnormal or uncommon these days. Let's face it. Steve Jobs can see into your dreams and extract a product that will ultimately be your missing piece. It is only natural that you reunite yourself with said piece, and so on... thereby increasing Apple’s market share.
