    Power Macintosh 8600/300

    A lot of people love the 8600. I am not one of them. I like the tower case design and stuff, but it seems every 8600 I have ever touched was either super finicky or just plain flaky. The 8500 on the other hand has been nothing but rock stable for me. I have owned about 5 of them in the past...

    PB 1400/166: Cranky

    Interestingly enough I pulled my 1400/133cs out of the closet today and it refused to power on. I left it plugged in for 15 minutes and still nothing. Then I hit the little reset button on the back. Booted right up. Still. I think I am going to sell it. Or trade. There is just something about...

    A Pile Of iBooks

    If you get one of the G3 iBooks working, I'd buy it. As long as it doesn't suffer from the GPU problem. Drop me a PM. I miss my old 12" iBook.

    Power Mac 8500/120 and other goodies

    The 8500 is my all time favorite Macintosh tower computer, followed closely by the Beige G3 tower. Sadly my 8500 died a few years back. What I wouldn't give to acquire another one. There's just somethng about the design of the tower, it's aesthetics and its hardware that just calls to me...

    Nice 520c

    I had a PB520c many years ago. It was an OK laptop. Not my daily driver but something to tinker with none the less. IIRC, I sold it on e-bay to another Mac collector. Considering I hardly used (much preferred my PB5300) it wasn't all that big of a loss. Have fun with your little PB though. :)

    Pismo 900Mhz G3 upgrade - so it DID work!

    If it were me I would run it at 700MHz and move on with my life. Hope it works out for you.

    Great Week for Conquests

    Gratz on the cube and the 800MHz G4. I'd like to find something like that for my BeigeG3.

    Stellar specimen of a TiBook! [PICS]

    Nice score. Treat it with respect and it should serve you well. I myself owned 3 Ti's throughout my life and I loved them to death. 2 of them died a painful death from broken hinges and mutliated LVDS cables. The other sampled my iced tea and while it was delicious, it never powered on again...

    I have a burning desire. A *NEED*

    Use it as a NAS and Firewall running some form of *NIX. Move on with your life. Problem. Solved.

    Thoughts on Dual 2.7 G5

    If it were me, I would buy the G5 for $250 no questions asked. I bought a 1.8GHz G5 a few years ago and I loved the machine to death. I sold it to a friend of mine whose financial situation is poor and was still using his Amiga 4000 as his main computer. He loves it and of course is very happy...

    WGS 9150

    Forget the 9150. Did you guys see this?!?. Man I learned to program on those! Clunky as hell, but still very cool. The fact that you not only own one of them, but also have the requisite boxes and RAM upgrades for it grant you +50 internets. I remember reading over various computer mags back...

    Q800 and mystery Nubus cards

    Grats on the score. I know some people hate but I love that case style and design. For whatever reason, it just appeals to me on a very basic level.

    Nimitz Class KBD & more . . .

    Old keyboards FTW! That clicky beast looks downright awesome. May it serve you well.

    Apple Powerbook 1400c

    Grats on the 1400c. They are good machines. TBH though, I never was impressed by them. I love PowerPC laptops and one of my all time favorites has to be my 5300c. Sure it's slow, but it lets me write, play a few vintage games and it never sees the internet. I consider this a huge bonus because...

    Macintosh Computers, Software and Accessories. Oh my!

    Do not say bad things about the 8500. I know the case can be a pain to work with, but it is still one of my all time favourite Macs. The 6x AV machine is pure win though. I have wanted one of those for many years. Yes I know they are underpowered a bit and the 8500 or 7600 is a clear step up...

    A Mystery Box.

    The box contains a box, with another box, and another box, and another one and another and so on. Inside is a tiny cat.

    Been a while. PM 6500/225!!!

    Very nice score. I have a 6500/300 myself and it is a wonderful system. Mine has 128MB of RAM a 120GB HD (man what a pain to replace the hard disks in those systems) and a 16MB Rage128 card. Runs like a dream. I am currently running 8.1 on mine with no complaints. I've always like the tower...

    Not a mac, but still a killer machine

    Thinkpads, whether IBM or Lenovo are designed and built far better than most of their competitors. Lenovo added the roll cage which really helps things out. TBH the only main issue is with the T4x series and the GPU coming loose requiring a motherboard swap or reballing service. That being said...

    Not a mac, but still a killer machine

    I recently traded my Thinkpad X41T Tablet PC for this Thinkpad T43. Specs: 2.0GHz Pentium M 1GB DDR RAM <- Now 1.5GB and I am going to order another stick of 1GB to replace that 512 6-Cell battery 14.1" XGA LCD soon to be replaced with a 14.1" SXGA+ LCD Intel 2200BG Wifi 30GB HD soon...

    dual 500MHz G4

    I hate to come across as harsh but the OP did state that: also followed up with: So if we understand that he requires Office 2008 and if we understand that said software requires the following: * Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (500 MHz or faster) processor * Mac OS X version 10.4.9 or...
