I guess I meet your loyalty "requirements" then:     ;)

1984 while stationed in Germany:
Apple IIc
Apple Scribe Printer
Disk IIc

After return from Germany.
Apple 3.5" drive update for Apple IIc
Apple Link - Personal Edition

Sometime between 1988 and 1991:
ColorMonitor IIc

Macintosh LC
StyleWriter Printer

Macintosh Quadra 605
Newton MP 110

iMac G3

iMac G4 (800 MHz, w/ SuperDrive

iMac G5 ALS

iPhone 4GB

iPhone 8 GB
Newton MP 2100

iPhone 3GS


Except for the Quadra 605, the ColorMonitor IIc, the Scribe & 
StyleWriter printers, and the Newton MP 110, I still have all of the 
above, plus an Apple IIgs CPU I picked up somewhere. The 4 GB iPhone is 
in the process of being sold, however.
