I've had Apple systems for over 10 years now, all received second-hand. I've broken each one down, rebuilt them, and upgraded them with some of the better components I could find.
From playing Diablo on a ancient 66MHz PowerPC 7100 system under OS 8.1 to playing World of Warcraft or Halo on a heavily upgraded G4 system under OS 10.5.4 and then a Hackintosh running 10.6.3, I've tried to get the most use out of my Macintosh systems.
