Collection Spotlight

Leo LeBron was born and raised in Michigan. He grew up on PCs at home and Macs at school. He says, "I remember using the old compact Macs all the way up to the 5th grade. Then, in 1998, my school got dozens of shiny new Bondi Blue iMacs. Those were an exciting experience - and made me regret going home every day to my father's old 486.

"When I was in the 10th grade, I became facinated by the Apple IIes my biology teacher's used as classroom machines. This was back in 2003/04. I was interested in both what the machines could do and that they still worked in the early part of the 21st century, over a decade after the newest ones were sold.

"He then offered me my first Mac, a Macintosh Plus, and from there I have amassed a collection of over two dozen Macs - and growing.

"In this column, I'll dig through my collection of low end Macs and give my take on each one, as well as write about what I have them doing today and crazy things I've done to them in the past. That includes everything from turning them into dedicated gaming servers to running Linux as a primary OS.

"Stick around, it is going to be one interesting ride for both of us."
