In 1996 I purchased my first system based around and Apple Performa 6500 and two AppleVision AV monitors (picture right).
Since then I have owned various Apple computers including the first generation of PowerMac G4, a PowerBook G3, a 15" PowerBook G4, a 12" PowerBook G4, a 13" MacBook and now have 15" MacBook Pro (through work) and a 27" iMac.
