30 years of Apples in 2 minutes

Gary Katz sent us this video that he did of his Apple Computer collection. One system morphs into another, starting with the Apple II. Not every system is here, but most of them are. Seeing the eMate (remember that?) reminded me I want to do a casemod of some modern hardware inside that case. The eMate was a flop, but the case was really cool (tres Batman).

    It was literally Batman — they used an eMate for Batgirl’s computer in Batman & Robin circa 1997. I have one in my basement somewhere.

    They may not be part of your collection but you are missing several:

    The Apple IIc – The first Portable Apple
    The Apple IIGS
    The Mac Color Classic – The first small format color Mac
    The Mac LC-520 – The first “All-in-one” Mac
    The Mac 6400

    and maybe others…
