IIsi in a Bag

Ever since learning about A/UX, I have wanted a computer that I could run it on. However, I tend to collect powerbooks and consumer macintoshes, so none of the computers in my collection met the requirements. I had to go out and get one of the more professional models. I find A/UX to be quite fascinating and would love the experience of using it.

QuickTake photos

Part of my Vintage Apple/Mac collection is a QuickTake 100 digital camera. I got this camera back in 2004 when I purchased a vintage Duo 280c and 230.
