i have been a user of Apple computers for more than 10 years. Judging from
my knowledge of
Apple and Macintosh computers, i would say that your folks' Apple computer is
not worth
anything to you... not for work at least. Depending on the exact model ( you
didn't say if it was a
Plus, a Classic, and SE, an Apple 2E, an FX or....?), it could be much like
going back to work on
an XT or some other such ancient IBM/compatible machine.

Apple makes an *excellent* computer, which can compete head-to-head with the
latest PCs, but
Apples changes just like IBM/compatibles, and in order to satisfy you after
your "Pentium
experience" you will need an Apple with at least a 68030 or 68040 processor,
or a PowerPC
(the lastest Apple processor used by Apple).

Just for your info, i use a Mac Quadra 610, with a 68040 processor, and my
tech-writer friend
who uses a Pentium says my system does things much more quickly than his.
