Over time, I've probably owned another 20 or so, including some 68K Macs, two Blueberry iBooks, two PowerMac G4s, three Bondi Blue iMacs, a Graphite iMac, and a Tandy 1000 POS. These have all since been sold, traded, or (in the case of the Tandy) chucked.

Last year I parted out about 15 different computers (mostly PCs and 5x00 all-in-ones) 'cause I just didn't have the space anymore.

Too Many 'Puters

Over the years, I've had way too many machines. We'll go with everything since 1993 (everything's kinda fuzzy before then)

Amiga 500
Mac Plus (bought with SE, Classic, and Lisa at Salvation Army in '95 for $60 total)
Mac SE
Mac Classic
Apple Lisa
custom desktop pc - amd 5x86 133mhz (technically a 486, but 5x86 sounded more like a pentium)
Macintosh IIcx (had it for a month before trading it on the next great thing)
PowerBook 180 (the machine the started my PowerBook voyage)
Duo 230 (with full and floppy dock - kinda neat)
IIsi (bought with the Duo 230 in VA while moving to FL)
Quadra 610 (bought to run OS Dirol
Power Mac 7200/90
Power Mac 6100/60 (3x - bought and resold within 4-6 weeks)
PowerBook 180c (not as good as the greyscale 180)
PowerBook 1400c/166 (got as a high school graduation gift in 2000)
Umax S900L w/ G3 card (quite possibly one of the best Macs ever!)
iMac 233 (bondi - this unit has been all over the USA - different family members have had it from time to time - my younger sister has it atm)
custom PC - AMD Athlon 750mhz (ran 2k Pro on it, ended up selling it for more than I paid for it six months later)
iBook (Dual USB) 500 mhz (my first brand new mac)
PowerBook G4 12" 867 mhz (my second brand new mac)
Power Mac G3 Beige - 233 upgraded to 350 with rage 128 video card - snappy
iBook G4 1.0 ghz 12" (had it for two weeks before reselling)
iBook G4 1.2 ghz 12" (had it for a few months before I outgrew the screen)
iMac DV 400 (summer 2000) - (used it for a few months, just retired it, sending it to my younger sister to replace the bondi)
Power Mac G3 Blue & White 350 - this was my server at home, retired it and sold it
PowerBook G4 15" 1.5 ghz - my current PB. I'll probably go for a 17" of the intel variety when it's time to upgrade (probably in 07/08)
Dell Optiplex PII 266 - sitting waiting for me to play with it

my fiancee's computers
iMac DV - got it for her as a gift last christmas - her first mac
iBook - can't remember which one - she uses it and loves it
eMachines tower - it sits and collects dust since she got the iBook

various Dell Optiplexes (AOL)
various HP/Compaq boxes (Verizon)

Too Damn Many ! That's for su

Too Damn Many ! That's for sure.....

But only 2 Windoze machines. One eMachine when they first came out and a Packard bell PMMX I have now I got at a garage sale a while back for $10.00

I've had about 50 or so Macs and Clones. I've managed to thin the herd down to about 15 Macs and about 10 clones. Of those I actually use my G4 PB, G3 Clamshell and my G3 PowerTower Pro. The GF uses my Smurf 450MHz G3 so I guess it's not really mine anymore......

And 3 Macs enroute too....
Another Smurf G3, A 1400c w/G3 and a 6360 I plan on putting a 275MHz 6500 board into.
