Hi Terry, I found your site after seeing a classic Mac on an online auction and decided to search for one for sale - preferably an SE/30. My history with Apple goes back to 1996 when I started to work for a company called Campus Computers in Auckland as a computer technician. One of my first jobs was to diagnose a seemingly dead Macintosh II. There was a really funky smell coming from it when I tried to boot, so I asked the customer and she said her cat sleeps on top of it and had probably pee-ed on it!!!
I have been working with Mac OS since the early days of System 7 right up to Mountain Lion - I find that the Mac makes sense to me, I get lost and frustrated with anything else, and I am bringing up the next generation (my kids) to be Mac people too.
I am no longer a full time tech but I still tinker and support some locals in my area and plan to one day have a proper Man Cave with all manner of working Macs to show off and play with.

Hi Beags and welcome to the Forums.

You'll find a few Apple (and even Apple Mac) enthusiasts here. I certainly enjoy my Mac SE/30 but I have to admit it's more the baby macs that do it for me rather than later ones. Those early Macs are iconic symbols of the late 1980s. :)

Cool! Another Machead! I've got a few Mac Pluses and an SE which I've had to do a lot of work to. They are outside my 8-bit collection, but old Macs are very cool.

Hi Beags, I'm into my Apple Mac's as well. I'm more early ninety's and up Mac's, I have a few various models and a reasonable collection of Software and books. I spend most my time playing around with Commodore Amiga's but I have my Mac's there to play around with when I get too frustrated with the Amiga stuff and want something that just works.
Amiga 4000T's,4000's, 3000's, 2000's, 1200's,1000's, 600's, 500's, CDTV and CD32's
