    I've got a range of vintage Apple hardware and software (i mentioned this as my collection is broader than just Macs, including a few Newtons, Apple e-mates, and a couple old Apple ]['s of various models) - out of interest i was going to see if other vintage computer collectors find that you get the same response from people that i get - people see the pile of stuff i've got laying round the house, or it comes up in discussion, and it's often "why are you collecting obsolete junk"?

    Yeah, my friends think I am crazy for collecting old macs and apple stuff! I wish I had more though, I tried to get an Lc 3 as i need a power supply for my Lc 475, but as usual someone bid on it about .5 of a second before the end! I am sick of it, it's so hard just to buy on eBay! This is my 5th time.

    Eeek! Here's my collection as it currently stands. Can upload a few photos later if anyones interested however it's not all in one place. It's scattered geographically (lol) and not all in 'photogenic' condition... Lots of stuff is yet to be tested or not working condition although lots of stuff is in really good working condition too. For example, most of the iPods need batteries and I expect a lot of hard drives would be failed by not but all this stuff is pretty vintage/retro now and definitely showing age cosmetically and functionally.

    I can personally vouch for macman142's INSANE Mac collection!
    I've got to get around to cataloguing my collection - well over 100 Macs at last count...

    I'll upload a couple of photos this afternoon. Like I said, it's pretty hard to photograph as very few are on display and they're just scattered. Not quite "hoarder - buried alive" style thank goodness.

    Hahaha actually I think it'd be really cool to have a museum type setup. However, I have a feeling I wouldn't get many visitors!

    Actually, I've got a small handful of pics on my MobileMe gallery while it still exists... HERE for anyone interested

    Other collectors must commence photo uploads now too though... I don't want to be the only one!

    Ooh, got to add my collection here sometime soon... after my visit to Wagga Wagga in June it may just approach the size of macmans'...

    I'm still in the process of cataloguing it. I have no idea how many I have.

    Do you mean going to Wagga Wagga to that massive collection of vintage macs that Jsarchibald won?
    I wish I could go, from the picture there are so many Macs there that I would love to take

    Neoxide, are you actually heading to Wagga this year? When I was there, Howard was saying he had plans for it to be all gone (removed by recyclers) however I suspect that would be even harder for him to actually go ahead with than giving the machines away would have been in the first place.

    There was so much there I didn't look through, although that being said there was plenty of equipment that needed a lot of work to bring back to life.

    Howard seemed fine with getting rid of all the Apple equipment there, it was a chapter in his career/life that he had passed however I think deep down it would have been very very difficult.

    Having moved house recently, we've been slowly clearing out some stuff we've had in storage - among which I've discovered the old laptop I used in high-school/early uni years - a PowerBook 1400cs. Aside from a dead battery, I'm amazed at how well it runs! Here's a pic of it starting up with some X-Files themed splashscreen I had installed... (look at all those extensions loading!)

    That is a pretty cool theme!
    I also have a 1400cs and they are a fantastic machine except for the screen!
    I have been doing a few essay on mine and enjoying the lovely keyboard. My MacBooks keys seem so light and seem to have no feedback compared to the lovely 1400cs keyboard!

    Default Apple IIc

    Here is a photo of my pride and joy being signed by Woz.

    I've had my IIc since new (1984) and it's complete with all the manuals in mint condition (the user manual is also signed by Woz) and software. Also have the orginal packaging and box.

    My wife thinks I care more about the IIc than I care about her, hmm.. tough call.
