13 Apple IIGS

IIGS came after the original Mac; it was just a failure, and the Mac wasn't. Plus, before Mac, there was Lisa. Still awesome. - kfcnyancat

The true forerunner to the Macintosh. The Mac and it's OS took a lot of their components from the IIGS which used a mouse and a user interface that was similar to the Mac's, except the IIGS's GUI was in color. The IIGS was the reason it took Apple 10 years to kill off the Apple II line of computers.

14 Power Mac G4 Cube

One of the most stylish and innovative computers ever. The only things that would give a hint there was a computer around are the monitors and keyboards attached to it. Otherwise, it looked like a piece of the decorations in the room.

Submitted this item and the Q840AV, the Powerbooks 540c, 190cs, G4, PowerMac G4, IIfx, and the IIGS items. Some of the Macs and PCs I still have and use.

PS The Q840AV really was the fastest computer on earth in it's day - even at 40MHz. There was a PBS special in which a 90 MHz Pentium was pitted against a 6MHz PowerMac to see which computer could process spreadsheet data and 4 graphs the fastest. Excel was also native on the PC and emulated on the Mac - further slowing down the supposedly slower Mac (6O vs 90MHz). By the time the PC was just finishing it's first graphical rendition of the data, the Mac was finishing it's 4th! Hence, the Mac was 4 times faster than the PC even when emulating the Excel Spreadsheet. An Intel Rep ran the PC ...more

15 PowerBook G3
16 Apple II
17 Power Macintosh
18 Power Mac G4 with Mirrored Drive Doors

Best Pre-Intel Mac tower computer. This machine is the most beautifully designed computer of all time and very functionally capable with few and far between issues.

19 PowerBook 540c

Best Pre-PowerMac Laptop, period

20 Powerbook 190cs

Second best Pre-PowerMac Laptop, period

21 Quadra 840 AV

Best Pre-PowerMac/Pentium computer period. When the PowerMacs and Pentiums came out, there was one computer the Mac and PC Gurus would not test against. The Q840AV. Instead, they tested against the Q660AV because they were faster, but the Q840AV blew the new Macs and PCs doors off. They couldn't sell the new computers if people new there was a current computer that was better all the way around than their expensive new computers.

22 Macintosh IIfx

The IIfx was the first truely full color (millions of colors), and fastest processor of it's day hands down. The only drawback was it's hefty price. It took several years for the PC to catch up. The only faster computer was another Mac introduced a couple years later - the Q840AV. First computer called super.

23 Apple Lisa

You forgot this old old computer. The Lisa was a breakthrough in computers, and helped pave the path to the brilliant Macs we see today. It had a top notch system back in its day, though I'm not much for the chunky old casing. Lisa is the most unknown of every Apple product. - Cutiegirl123
