Frank, you might find the info at this link interesting as I was one of the first to buy a MAC and use it as a design and illustration tool:

Here is the famous retort to Apple regarding the MAC's typographic capabilities:

Frank - I'm like you in that I have at least 10 old Macs going back to the Mac Classic along with a 8086, 286, 386, 486, etc. My favorite is my 3 Amiga computers (500, 1200, Video Toaster). And then there is the Commodore 64 and a Commodore 64sx Portable! I have lots of other stuff my wife wishes I'd get rid up but it it too much fun firing up these old systems to remember what it was like in the "old days". Remember the Zip 100 that bankrupt Syquest!!
