    2. Mac II, Quadra & Centris

      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • 30 years ago: Valentine's Card printed on Mac/ImageWriter II: "You cheap, lazy bastard! Couldn't be bothered to get me a real card?!"   Now: Valentine's Card printer on Mac/ImageWriter II: "Oh my god! A vintage Valentine's day card! I love it!!"   **Results may vary based on loved one, love of computers, vintage hardware, and nature of your relationship with loved one and/or vintage hardware. No warranties given or implied.
    • They are called nylon snap rivets.  Google that term, and you'll find a ton of different sizes.  I can't remember the exact size the compact Macs use.
    • I picked up this SE about 2 months ago now. Really good condition, works a treat. Even came with an external hard drive. I picked it up locally, came in it's original box even. Well one of the things I really wanted to be able to do with it was to be able to print the cards and banners I used to make when I was a kid. So I found an Image Writer II on eBay for a song and a dance, and it too came in it's original box! I dare say it's in even better condition than the computer. Got the ribbon and paper and the first thing I printed in PrintShop was a valentine's card for my girlfriend.    
    • SOLVED! Embarrassing, but this was just a software issue. I was using System software 4, and 128k Macs can only handle up to System software 3.2. My dumb mistake. Works great now.
