Whats Your Favorite Classic Mac? As in classic I mean before the G4 processor. Mine happens to be the '84 128k Macintosh.

For me, I love the Power Macintosh 9500. You can run Leopard on it, and it was one of the first Macs that could boot camp into Windows!

My favorite classic Mac would either be the iMac G4 (I know, it's not before the G4, but it's still pretty old), the iMac G3 (preferably Orange or Red), OR the Macintosh 128K. It was by far the best looking Mac (teehee), but on a more serious note, provided a ground for the future generation of Mac's to come.

BTW- If you are interested in reading more about the original Mac and how it came to be, check out the book "The Revolution in the Valley". Here is the link.

Only one I have ever owned was the Performa 630 CD. Loved it. I had upgraded it to Mac OS 8.0. I had purchased 9.0, but I couldn't stand it, not sure why. And then OSX came along and I absolutely hated that.

It would have to be the 128K and the 512K macs there. I wish I had the floppy disks for them so I could boot them up over here it would still be neat to set them up with an external hard drive and run like just a word processor on them. The key boards were not bad on them. They made that kind of clicking sound when you typed on them. Something very similar to like the keyboard sound from the IBM 5100 keyboards.

After working on a Macintosh II, I was hooked. RamDoubler fooled the computer into thinking it had up to 4 times it's actual memory. RAM Disk let you create a RAM Disk to run programs from. The Motorola Processor was cutting edge. When IBM & Motorola collaborated in creating the PowerPC RISC processor those higher end Macintosh PowerPCs & PowerBooks were my favorite. When I worked for Kinko's, that's what was used for the most part =0p...

One of the Macs that help make Apple what they are now.
