I still have my first Mac+. And my IIci. They still boot too (the + reqires a floppy to boot, no HD). We dismantled the 9500 a while back; don't want to think about how much we paid for that one....

The + even has a "carrying case" to make it portable.

i have an apple ][ with 5.25" floppies and it all still works just fine. :P as they say "elephant disks never forget". some of those floppies are about to hit 40!

few dec vt100 terminals in the basement too somewhere.

was once offered a pdp-11 if i felt like hauling it off. passed on that one.
