Tamara Keel first became insanely jealous of Macs back in 1985 when a classmate got a Macintosh and she was still toiling away writing papers on a Coleco Adam. She logged as much time on Macs belonging to friends as she could until 1994, when she bought her first very own Macintosh: a used SE/30.
By 1997, she had added a IIsi and an LC II, and when Low End Mac debuted the same year, she was squarely in the target demographic. Four years later, a Key Lime iBook became her trusty mobile machine, and she was hooked for good. She now lives in Indianapolis with four cats, twenty-something vintage Macs, and the world's most longsuffering roommate.
Low End Mac pays it's writers a modest fee. If you've found Tamara's advice and commentary helpful, you can make a personal donation to him via PayPal using this button:
