    Back in the days that floppy discs were just that.

    No wonder I've never heard of them they were based in Oakland, how much of that stock do you reckon ever made it out?
  • LanceVance
    I'll take 2!! I would want one with the optional 256k RAM though.

    Yet another waste of Cyberspace (see what I did there? Funnier than half the shit on this site)

    How about the Apple Lisa - $9,995 on release, equivalent to $23,380 in today's money. But back then, even mactards weren't so gullible and eager to hand over megabucks just for a "oh look, it's so shiny!" toy computer.

    you laugh now, but in 20 years there'll be another website (or the equivalent) publishing photo's of our current PC adverts & Laughing at them (maybe even advert of the Jesus Phone!!!!!)

    I had a Mac+ at Uni. Great portable computer - it had a handle in the top! I think that cost just under £3000 with it's ImageWriter printer. I upgraded it with a 30MB hard drive, which cost £400. The hard drive was the size of two bricks. I added the ultimate upgrade as well - the Mac Puke sound....which played every time you ejected the floppy. Neat eh????

    Just to add....Macs aren't virus-proof either.....we had Macintosh viruses back in 1989! I don't think they'd even invented them for Windows back then!
  • Darren
    Macs aren't immune, but there are only 4 known viruses for the MAC, and 2 of them are MICROSOFT related!! the Melissa virus which was mac office 2001 and the mac.simpson virus which mass mailed, but ended up sending you to a simpson online list... hardly a threat the other 2 are from TIGER OS X days...
  • Darren
    I think there are only 4... Im sure someone is going to prove me wrong... some PRO PC user or something... and please dont let this get into a MAC VS PC argument.
  • Wibble
    Don't you remember nVir A, nVir B and nVir C? That's three for a start.... (ok, they're from when Macs weren't just shiny things for people with too much money...they were dull things for people with too much money!)
  • Darren
    @wibble. exactly... not active, i wonder how many viruses there are for a PC?
  • James
    @Darren. I wonder how many PC users there are?
