The mac I used to have before that, a PowerMac model from 96, or some such, is still working, show me a windows made computer that is still running strong after 11 years of use, and absolutely no tinkering with the hardware.
Just wanting to say that I truly apreciate the hardware and software for the mac, far more than for windows.
There were standard built PCs at my elementary school that still run. You know the green screen IBMs? That was a long time ago too.
