FREE Boxed Mac 128K!

Yesterday I saw an ad on CL for a free 128k, I immediately emailed the seller and asked to setup a time. When I got to his house he threw in an extra keyboard, mouse, floppy drive (Harvard stamped) and a bunch of other software. The 128k was upgraded to a 512k, and he even included the screw removal tool and the original 128k motherboard. The box is missing a few inserts but can't complain! All for FREE!

Very nice. The floppies can be a pain to tear down and clean up. Takes a bit of patience. But, I did the one on my Mac 512K a few years ago. Works like new now, so it's definitely worth the effort.

Envy you!  You guys are so lucky, but a few weeks ago bought Amiga 1200 for decent price. Quite blind purchase, because I only saw a few pictures. 

Came with GVP 030/40 card, bunch of extra mice, heavy duty PSU and some guide books - that seller didnt mention.

The 128k is a tad bit yellow. Ill try to retr0brite it. I thought the external floppy drive was very cool  :cool:

Very nice conquest!

It's amazing the stuff you can find that originally came from colleges/universities.  Things just get tucked away in a corner and completely forgotten about, and then fall out of inventory (or were never inventoried in the first place).

The box has a Dartmouth college sticker on it and the floppy seems to be from Harvard. The floppy had a $35 price tag stuck on it, so I imagine it was purchased later on.

When I took apart the drive in my Plus, I discovered the best lubricant was a bicycle chain always wet oil. I did it years ago now and it still works fine.
