I appreciate the fact the Buck Rogers won't do domestic swill with twist offs.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

It says it's a Performa 5440... so no. Although the remote control implies it has the TV Tuner card.

The Macintosh TV was an older 68k model, based off a Performa 540 or something, and it said "Macintosh TV" on the front.

Actually, I think the first few Intel Mac generations still had that magic to them, but Apple doesn't care about Macs anymore.

I still love my Amiga 1000 more than any computer or woman I've ever had. Long after I threw it down the garbage disposal because I just didn't have time for that anymore.

Mac-wise, I still wish I could go back to Snow Leopard and run all the current guff.

I believe that the iMac pro is supercool, but ridiculously overpriced. And I don't think I want an all in one anymore.

It was an act of detachment. I'm sure I could have gotten money for it...the original case with all the designers signatures and pet paw print molded into the inside.
