Do you need old system software disks to boot your vintage Mac?

It's fun to look back at old Apple emails. Check them out.

I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

My Ever-Growing Apple Collection

I’ve been on a pretty hefty buying spree the past 2 months. I’ve made a ton of vintage Apple purchases. It’s funny though, the more things I check off my “want list” the more I seem to add to it.

With the latest addition of my Macintosh Portable, I found myself reorganizing a few things to get it to fit. I was left wondering where the next machine will go. I have my eye out for a G4 Cube, a Lisa, and a Twentieth Anniversary Mac. I have no idea where I’d put them if I got one. I might have to consolidate or take down some of the empty boxes and move stuff to shelves. I can’t add any more shelves since I used up all the wall space on posters. The empty space above the Newtons is already reserved for 2 new 24 x 36 posters I scored. I still have to pick up some frames for them.

Anyway, here’s a few updated pictures of the collection:
