First Mac and those that came after it

With the Macintosh’s 25th birthday coming up, everyone has been reminiscing about their first Macs.

My very first Mac was an original Mac 128, purchased in Feb. 1984. I’ve owned many others over the years:

  • Mac Plus
  • Mac SE/30
  • Macintosh IIsi
  • PowerBook 100
  • Duo 270c (with the mini dock only)
  • Mactell XB (Tanzania-based clone)
  • Blue & White G3/350
  • iBook G3/466 SE (Graphite Clamshell with firewire)
  • White iBook G3/500 (Dual USB)
  • PowerMac G4/500 (upgraded to 1 GHz G4; this is the oldest Mac I still own)
  • Original 12″ PowerBook G4/867
  • 15″ PowerBook G4 1 GHz
  • Mac Mini G4/1.42 GHz (currently in use as a DVR)
  • iMac Core Duo 1.8 GHz (first Intel Mac; replacement for ADP development system)
  • Original 15″ MacBook Pro Core Duo (2.0 GHz)
  • MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo (Santa Rosa), 2.4 GHz
  • 13″ Aluminum MacBook 2.4 GHz (my current main computer)

  1. Awesome list! What program are you running on your Mac-mini as a DVR?

  2. I use Elgato’s EyeTV with an EyeTV Hybrid, which replaces my Firewire EyeTV 200 that died recently after a power outage.
