I'm in Northwestern Florida. I have over 150 Macs and the highlight is my original Macintosh.

I live in Macon, GA. I have six Macs... a Plus, iMac G3, 2 PowerMac G4's, a Mac Mini and a MacBook. AlthoughI love my G4's my iMac is my's the first Mac I ever really used.

I live in New Smyrna Beach, Florida which is on the east coast about 130 miles south of the Georgia border. NSB's claim to fame is that we are the shark bite capital of the world, which doesn't keep me from calling the ocean my second home one bit.
I think the count is up to at least 30 Macs. My most used Mac is my iMac Core Duo, but I think my favorite is my iMac G5. I use most of them pretty regularly. All of the desktops except for one Cube are fully connected to their own displays, power, internet, keyboards and mice so they're ready to go.

Hi y'all! (appropriate greeting for this group, eh?)

I'm in Charlotte, NC. I'm an Apple / Mac tech from the 1980's-90's. No longer certified in Apple, now employed as a network engineer.

Working at a dealership, I was able to play with almost all the Apple/Mac products during that time. Started with an Apple II in college, then purchased a SE/30 through work (took forever to pay for!), the only older Mac I still have. My day-to-day machines are a MacBook, iPhone and a Mac Pro.

I used to own a G4 Cube, but had a love/hate relationship with it trying to use it as my main computer. Great design, great concept... but high maintenance as it got older . But, I wish I'd kept it around as a collectible.

My favorite products were: SE/30, IIFX, '02 QuickSilver, '05 PowerMac Dual G5 (just sold for the Mac Pro)... and my new Mac Pro .

The worse? The original Mac Portable... OMG, I could take those apart in my sleep! I think every one we sold came back for system board replacements. By the end of their run, I think I do a sysboard replacement in under 20 minutes!

Looking forward to chatting with all of you. I've posted some photos of some older Apple items you may enjoy looking at.

Heather, you have an awesome collection. It was nice seeing the Flower Power iMacs. I hadn't seen one in a while. What would you say is your "rarest" Mac?
Comment by Alan on July 13, 2008 at 6:37pm
And James... ZOMG dude, what can I say?! 150 Macs... you've got it bad (he-he!)

Sounds like your fav is the original Mac... what would you say is your rarest? Which one was the hardest to obtain? I'm sure you have a story for almost every one, eh?

I got me another one! It is almost a hackintosh, but it is an iMac G3 DV+ (Summer 2001)(500Mhz), but it is in a Blueberry case. this is my second G3 to come. The first one was death by shipping, but this one came a week later, and it works beautifully. This makes 4 1/4 Macs (I still have the shell to the dead iMac)

I live in Houston, Texas, but go to university in Montana. My favorite mac is probably my Bondi iMac G3, but I like them all.

Little Rock, AR is where i live.

So who here lives the furthest from an Apple Store? There seems to be a dearth of Apple Store in the South. Our closest one is Atlanta which is about a six hour drive.
