Once, I just had one eMac.

Then... I accidentally fed it after midnight. Oops. When eMacs grow up they take so much room.

Of course, they were cute as babies...

But then they grow old... they turn beige and creaky, and are stacked away unwanted...

Hey all those iPods and iBooks gave me an idea:

An iPod that slides into the side of your iBook and becomes your hard drive. When you're finished computing, you slide it out and bop away on the headphones. No need to sync with iTunes becuase you're only using one drive. Would be slower than a regular HDD, but that's the price you pay for portability. Take the iPod to work, slide it into the side of your flat-panel iMac G5, continue working. Come end of the day, slide it out, take it home. It's a big circle of life thing. Or you can use a regular HDD in the same 'pod' slot.

Patent pending :)

After they grow old, you can put macs to many uses.

that is BRILLIANT

I take it you or you're company had recently replaced all their old macs with new ones... and gotten some free ipod?

Too bad the ibooks are g3, would have been way more impressive if they were g4s.

Cool. What are you going to do with them. I might be interested in a powerbook.

You would have to ring Apple to see if danamania is an approved Apple Registered Breeder
