The SuperDrive was the 1.4MB floppy drive. 800KB was the model in the 512KE, the Plus, and the basic SE, as well as Mac IIs without the drive upgrade.

It was the Powermac G4 that first sparked my interest in Apple and it's the reason why I collect computers today!

Nice. Did you actually buy them new when they were current and took much care to preserve them? Or were you lucky to get the machines in pristine condition?

Mine were all bought used, starting a few years ago. I recently added a Power Macintosh G4 Yikes! board to the collection and was hoping to get it installed in one of my Sawtooth based "barebones", but the backplate can no longer be easily removed on the G4 (AGP) cases, so I'll either have to remove it the hard way or have to wait for a G4 (PCI) case or just "upgrade" my G3.

I wasn't lucky enough to have the pleasure of using one of these machines when they were current! These were my "Dream Machines" when I was younger!

Besides my 486 which I've had since new (my first computer), the G4's were the first "vintage" machines that I collected.

In order to get the spotless example's I've got, I had to buy multiple machines and combine the parts to constitute cosmetically perfect machines. That was a rather expencive and time consuming task, but it taught me allot about the processes involved in restoring vintage machines and now I'm addicted! :mrgreen:

Some of the donor machines were bought locally and some from the US. I very quickly found that there are loads of these machines around, but its hard to get one thats in good shape, so I had to choose my donor machines carefully!

As soon as I had finished with the G4's my eyes very quickly turned to SGI, as I had also seen an O2 and I thought that it looked interesting and that got me into collecting SGI machines.

You tend to learn a great deal about machines when you literally have to build them up from carefully selected parts, and I find it to be a very enjoyable learning experience!
