Listener Rick’s Setup

Written by: MacCast

Categories: Feedback

MacCast listener Rick sent in a photo of his Mac set up and said this:

…I noticed your page has photos that listeners have sent of their systems – well, I took a pic of my oldest Mac (a now non-workin Mac SE/30 that I bought for £20 from my Math tutor’s son who had it via University in Australia of all places and they had it from a University in California) and my iMac G4.

That’s not the whole retro collection, there’s a Mac Colour Classic that I bought in a charity shop for £12, ‘cus they couldn’t work out that you had to turn it on via the keyboard. I also have a few older PowerMacs (6100, 7100, G3 Platinum, G3 Blue). I don’t have room for all these Macs – but I keep collecting them!
