According to Wiki: “The Performa 5200 was named by LowEndMac as the worst Macintosh ever made”
That’s gotta hurt :D

Hehe, I actually bought a performa 5200 out of the local paper for £10 as a fix-it and look at a mac for the first time about a year ago. Turns out the problem look like 5 mins to fix (some silly file wrong place or something) and then for 3 months couldn’t even give it away til it went in the skip :P That thing had a mighty ass external CD drive ;)

I actually had a Performa 5200CD I paid real money for. It cost me over $3000 CDN back in about 1995 or so. Not really that bad, but it did have a logic board replaced under warranty.

Things are never so bad that they can’t get worse. Somehow, that’s not a reassuring thought.

A Lucky Charm?

A “pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, green clovers, and new blue diamonds” era piece of cereal?

Found in a 35 year-old sofa in the basement?

I suppose my first computer would work, too, if I could be bothered.

Sinclair ZX81, anyone? Crashed more times than the Starbug from Red Dwarf, including once or twice against the wall. Low mileage though.
Michel, you don’t do much with computers, right?

Commodore 64 anyone?
64kbytes of godly memory.
Still working like a charm over here, too bad it has no networking and keeps yelling press play on tape at me.

I loved/hated tape drives. I had an old Acorn Electron (remember them – a poor man’s BBC computer?) and if you so much as sneezed, coughed or moved from your spot while the game was loading….
I remember once having to wait half an hour to play Yie Ar Kung Fu. Gotta love Chuckie Egg tho


There is no spoon.
