My first introduction to the Apple universe was with the Performa 475. Since then I have used numerous models include a Power Computing clone (a Power 100 tower).
Working as a technician at CompUSA, the manager asked me if I would be interested in taking the Apple Certification tests. In 2005, I was certified for desktops, portables, and software.
I was away from Macs for a while but now I am currently running a 13" MacBook Pro 2020.
