This topic may well have been posted before (and I have looked) but I'm not sure what keywords might have been used so ...

What's your Mac history? Please include Macs or Apples (as some knew them) that you used in your job or at school/college/university.

My first Apple experience was with the IIgs in 1987, then:
1990 - 1992 Apple IIe, Apple SE, Classic
1993 - 1995 Apple IIsi, LC 475
1996 PowerMac 6200
1998 PowerMac G3/300 Beige
2005 PowerMac G4 eMac 1.25
2006 PowerMac G3/350 blue-white (my No 2 backup & traveling computer)

Sometime when I was about 11 or 12 - Apple Classic IIe
Fall 2005 - 15" G4 TiBook; 667mhz DVI
Summer 2006 - G4 PowerMac "Sawtooth" 400mhz
Spring 2007 - 14" iBook G4; 1.42ghz
Summer 2008 - 15" G4 PowerBook; 1.33ghz

I'm pretty sure the timings might be off.. But those are all the Mac's I've ever owned.

My dad brought one home from work when I must have been 5 ish... so that was 1993. It had a printer, which was about the most exciting thing I'd ever seen at the time.

Then... nothing til new year 2006 when I worked in an internet cafe running 12 original iMacs, a PC and an iBook, which lead me to my late 2006 MacBook.

Early-mid 90s - No idea what Mac, but back in elementary school I remember seeing the old Mac logo and playing games like Oregon Trail and some Frogger-type game.

1996-2000 - I remember the blue iMacs were so new back then and each student was given an old floppy to store projects.

2006 - Bought my sister a MacBook for X-Mas. I've used it sparingly singce.

8/17/08 - Bought my own MBP. w00t!

In 1990, I was using a mac at the local library... an SE30.... word 4.0, and At Ease....

I was using word to create documents, and saving to a floppy disk.

My first mac was a color classic... then a performa 550, performa 6320, imac 333 blueberry, G4 tower... and my current imac.

Sometime in 1998: My aunt gave me my cousin's old LCII. Even back then, I liked Macs better than Windows.
