    iMac G5

    G5 iMac has been rescued from being recycled.  turns on, gives me the gray apple screen but just a constant spinning gear.   sounds like corrupt data/failing drive? pulled the drive out and realized I don't have an SATA to USB adaptor any more (well just have one for 2.5" drives).   next trick...

    non-apple conquest. Laserjet

    Have not found anyone to buy the old HP at work(last day at my current job today) so its going to come home with me,  kids print enough stuff to be worthwhile if just for the extra toner cartridge, one cartridge will last me years. The score is an HP Laserjet 8000DN B&W tabloid laser...

    SE and SE/30 electrolytic caps list.

    I got a partial list of the caps on my analog board, just missing one axial that's upside down so I can't read it and I can only read the two big main ones in the power supply. Does anyone have a comprehensive list? Want to order them so I can start recapping since they're both date coded...

    Not a mac... but will be?

    Ended up with a pair of Lenovo thinkcenter (M57p) towers that were being discarded from a local store of a national pizza chain... and it does smell like pizza when they've been on for a while. |) Also included two touchscreen monitors, that's kind of fun. Thus far I screwed up the BIOS...

    Now I'm on the fence Plus vs SE/30

    no I'm not going to have two... but I keep heming and hawing about snagging that SE/30 from my boss some how. (I used it today, made me think...) so I have a plus and finally have a good working keyboard. The plus is in VERY nice shape. clean case with only very light yellowing(100% even...

    iBook G4 OS 10.4 or 10.5?

    got G4 iBook for the kiddo, it's a 933 and has OS 10.4 on it. works fine. just wondering if there is a speed hit if I were to upgrade to 10.5 and if so how big a hit? since 10.5 has better parental controls and runs a newer version of iTunes (don't know how much of an issue that'll be, but...

    EDU software for a plus... what'll run?

    As the title says. I have permission from the wifey to set up a plus for my son to use on a desk *in the house!* 8-o The plus has 4MB RAM but I want to keep it limited to just programs that will operate off a floppy(don't have an external HDD, also want to keep the clutter down) Son is a...

    is it still a conquest if it was from a family member? Uncle upgraded to an intel mini a few years back and had his old G4 mini laying around still. optical drive didn't work, took it to the apple store and the repair cost wasn't worth it(he was already complaining about how slow it was) So...

    Thinking I should forget the 180 and get a 150

    Making my own thread here... those the only limitations? only have 4MB in the 180 and those modules are not all that common either, and currently no HDD either. want one for occasional use of old 68k software I still have... Most of which is from the days I owned a Plus and later a PB...

    Finally got my macbook. conquestish since it was $100 and in amazing condition and works perfectly. early 2007 so it's *just* meets the 10.7 cutoff, once I upgrade it to 2GB of RAM. downside to low use, battery has only 19 cycles, but it is completely dead :( was going to use this for...
