    [closed] Weekly Photo Contest: Your first Mac photos!-caldwell-baby-mac.jpg

    Apple has been around for awhile (that's really not breaking news) and over the years, the Mac has evolved in so many ways. From newer designs to faster hard drives and upgrades, to modern, eye-catching color schemes and products, the Mac continues to make leaps and bounds in more ways that one!

    The Macintosh Plus debuted in 1986, and three years later the Macintosh Portable hit the market at a super light 16 pounds. If you were alive in the 1990s, then you probably lusted after the iBook G3 or the first iMac because of its bright and colorful design and incredibly futuristic feel, or maybe you picked up the Power Macintosh G4 Cube at the dawn of the millennium 2000.

    Regardless of whichever model of Mac was the first to touch your heart, there's a probable chance that you snapped a photo of you and your tech, or at least took a photo to show off to others. I mean, this was an Apple computer, after all... Not just any ol' rinky-dink thing...

    That's why we've decided to kick of the first of many photo contests by asking you to show us your first Mac photos! Maybe you have a snapshot of yourself at college with your iBook, or maybe there's a shot (like Serenity has!) of you as a little tot at your family's Mac!

    I'm going to go back even further than the Mac...all the way to the Apple II. Here is me in 1980 and 2011. I believe in the first image I was using our letter quality printer (that I borrowed from work) to cheat on my homework for typing class. Nobody really had printers at home, so if I turned in my printed homework, the teacher assumed I had typed it on our typewriter. Anyway...I got an A in the class, and actually learned to type a few years later.

    I even have an original Apple ][ Plus computer signed by Steve Wozniak.
