In Pictures: Six of the rarest Macs

Many Macs are uncommon or hard to find today, but for the sake of brevity (and for fear of the dreaded TL;DR), I’ve decided to examine six of the rarest among them.

Power Macintosh G3 All-in-One (1998)

There’s an old saying that goes, “A camel is a horse designed by committee.” Similarly, the Power Mac G3 All-in-One (AIO) was an iMac designed by committee of horses.

One could say that the AIO’s convoluted form—which seems to follow the “tacked on” approach—represented all that was wrong with Apple’s hardware design process before Jobs took over for the second time. Even if we don't know the exact details, its design tells a story, and the story isn’t a pretty one.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
