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!!
