Where great old Macs live again!

Was too lazy to take out the APN, but here is my TOP 3 (TAM + Cube + 20" SunFlower) surrounded by a few other Apple stuff.
Pic was taken with iSight from my MacBook Pro

Awesome looking TAM! Mine shows some wear, and sadly has the "Hum" that plagued soe TAMs. I love the type of Cinema displays like the one next to your G4 Cube! I have the 22" version hooked up to my Aluminum iMac running it in extended desktop mode. I also have a 15" Studio Display that looks like the Cinema, and I'm saving it to display with a G4 Cube one day! The G4 iMacs look cool!! Have you seen the commercial for them where a guy walks infront of a department store window, and there's a G4 iMac in the display. As the guy makes funny faces, the iMac mimics him. Finally the man sticks his tongue out, and the iMac ejects the disc tray in the bottom!! It's so cute!! :-) :-)

It's shame for the "Hum". Mine is like new, and doesn't have the problem, though.

However, I bought another base unit - just in case.

Sometimes you can can grab one for cheap on eBay. Here take a look at this one for $75

I know the commercial you are talking about. It is cute indeed. The sunflower is really a design masterpiece. Probably the reason why you can just stare at it while it's not running.

1) I bought mine for 400€, but it's in mint condition with boxes, etc.

Didn't mind the price at all because it's my all time favorite.

 

2) I'm using a Formac Studio to watch TV.

 

3) I got about 50 Mac around the appartment (not even a house). Can only fit them in stacks, but they all work!

Behind the transparent stool, there is a stack of 6 LC.
Sometimes I take one Retro Mac out for a ride, but unfortunately can't have them all out at once (I wish but wife would kill me or worse throw them out the window).

I will do some better pics of the whole museum soon, but some are already in my photos folder.

 

4) I found the iMac commercial Franklin was talking about.
