It may look funny, but the Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet G85 combines an inkjet printer, scanner and fax machine in one unit. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

IBM had, of course, one of the most impressive displays at MacWorld: this Plexiglass disc filled with a wafer of PowerPC chips. The PowerPC 750, by the way, is the "real" name for what Apple calls the PowerPC G3. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

If it didn't have the most blinky lights at the show, it was at least in the running: the MicroNet Genesis is a RAID storage unit of enormous capacity and flexibility. If you need 1,700 billion bytes of error-correcting storage, and you have a fat checking account, this will do nicely. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

Marathon sells metal brackets that replace the plastic handles on G3 and G4 towers, allowing them to be mounted in standard LAN racks. This particular stack of five G4 Macs, complete with a liquid crystal display, attracted lots of attention from networking personnel. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

You've no doubt seen the Power Mac G4 commercial that features tanks. This iMac is ready for a tank commercial, too. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

The MicroNet SANcube offers up to 270 billion bytes of storage in an attractive box that can be hooked up, via FireWire, to four Macs. The unit sitting on top is a separate tape backup unit. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

Mounted on its stand, the OnStream Echo30 is a 30 gigabyte ADR tape drive that connects to a Macintosh via FireWire. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

As Robin Williams (a Peachpit author) mentions in her introduction to the latest Little Mac Book, the Mac is no longer quite so little, nor quite so simple. Peachpit's booth was always packed with people checking out the latest books on hardware and software. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

RoboLab offers students an opportunity to learn about electricity and programming with a variety of Lego-based kits that can be controlled by a Macintosh. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)

NetStation, a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet hub with built-in, self-coiling Ethernet cables, allows almost anyone to set up a small network with little to no advanced preparation. (Photo by Lawrence I. Charters)
