Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

Well if a unit is rare and historically important then i got no problem with high prices. But for the Apple II i think one should take into account that Over 6 million units were sold (if you count all Variations like II Plus, IIC and so on). So even if 90% of these went to the trash (unlikely) that...

Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

Well the iMac G3 is only worth fixing if you seriously plan to use it. Personally i really still like the old G3/G4 12 inch iBooks. Back in the days they were really neat laptops - rather small and light, pretty nice screen, a lovely design (I do like simple designs!) and halfway durable (Not really...

Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

Hmmmm, if they start making weird noises then that's usually the beginning of the end... :oops: Never had an imac, but i had some ibook G3 and G4. At least these used rather inexpensive 2,5" IDE drives that were rather cheap to replace. Ah the horror of re-installing an old Mac OSX from 4 CD-RO...

Let's build the perfect palmtop with todays tech...

This is a thought I've had since ages. If we were to built the perfect palmtop with todays tech - how would we design it, what features would it have and how would we do it? There is no answer. Well not a single one since every person got a different oppinion and different preferences. So let's sum ...

Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

you can use literally ANY IDE drive You do have a point seeing how old IDE drives for some reason are extremely expensive. Despite being 30+ years old :!: Yeah -especially some smaller and really old ones like in the range between 40 and 200 MB can be ridiculously expensive because they are so rare...

Re: Your favorite vintage non-palmtop computer?

Well to me the biggest advantage is that you can use literally ANY IDE drive. And no more puzzling with the few obscure types or variables that are normally "supported" on older machines. Also makes it easy to prepare an HDD with an operating system from another computer. In the long run -...
