Blueberry iMac DV. I loved that thing, until the video board went kaput.
Being in debt and celebrating a lower deficit is like being on a diet and celebrating the fact you gained two pounds this week instead of five.

Ditto that. Made me fall in love with Apple all over again, but damn was it lacking any kick in its step. Glad to be on the IntelBooks now.

Nope. The only thing I heard was the sound of my own sobbing.

Oh I had exactly the same! Though I've no idea whether it was a rev. A or rev. B model...

Graphite iMac. It was cool.

It's kind of crazy that our phones are now more powerful than it was.

January 2001 would have been right when I got the original Powerbook G4. But I may have still been rocking my crappy ass 6500.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

Graphite iMac DV 400. I had it in my bedroom at the time, so I LOVED the fact that it was fanless. I think I had just replaced my Rev. A Bondi iMac. Good times!

I'm pretty sure Sek and I joined at around the same time. I remember doing the motherboard swap to get the voodoo2 and mezzanine slot from the earlier rev A imac, with the faster rev D imac processor. I was the first, I think... I even had someone from "imac2day" trying to send me a digital camera to document my mods. Weird.

A home-brew PC. Was doing the music stuff on hardware.
Decided it was time to go back to Mac. Glad I did.

Own rig was a Roland MC with a few ADATs, sound generation and outboard by the usual suspects (Roland, Yam, Lexi, Focusrite, TC, Drawmer)*. But obviously in the big boys' rooms there's stuff like Radar and good old 2" available.

(* I have a theory about the law of diminishing returns as applied to studio work, thus don't bother with the stuff Gearslutz rant about... but that's a different thread)

I was gonna say "Don't you miss the RADAR?", but I figured that nobody in their right mind would switch from a RADAR to a PC/Mac-based studio…

Then again, would you be in music if you were in your right mind?

Heh. Of course not.

Give me hardware any day of the week. But "progress" seems to have dictated that it's the way of the dodo. I'm still using hardware sound generation, outboard and mixing, obviously, but the DAW is reasonably acceptable for my current needs. Mostly.

My first homebrew PC; An Antec skyscraper case (pretty sure it's still available), AMD Duron 800MHz, 256MBs of RAM, 40GB HD, GeForce 2MX 32MB, Windows 98...

Funnily enough I'm fairly sure I would not have ever gone Mac had I installed Windows XP on that machine. Windows 98's constant freak outs were what started me looking elsewhere.
