    The Sound of the SE's Hard Drive

    Ahh... The bliss of using a Plus, just the very faint electrical buzz of the CRT.

    So I am not crazy.

    I'll have to take pictures of mine sometime.

    So I am not crazy.

    I have a boxed shrinkwrapped one, It's called the Envisio NDA030, it's a little video-out upgrade made for the powerbook 140 and 170, that plugs into the memory socket, it provides a ram upgrade for the powerbook and the video out. http://calbears.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0NEW/is_1992_Jan_22/ai_11872921

    I'll be using my se/30 to get on the net, the powerbook 100 or Portable for a laptop, the mac plus for some stuff, and the IIfx for non internet work(if i can't find a nubus rj45 ethernet card by then).

    Then why join the the MLA? The forum was meant for the preservation of classic macs, IE: ones that don't run OS X.

    SE/30... best Mac ever?

    Ethernet cards are pretty common, and work much better than a SCSI ethernet solution you'd have to use on the classic II.

    Mac II Shortage?

    I run 7.6.1 on my IIfx, and I have thought about dropping a 50mhz 030 and 68882 in it and maybe overclocking to 60mhz. I'd also like to get some science equipment, some interesting cards and a bigger desk for it.

    Mac II Shortage?

    Not a lot at the moment, and I doubt whether any would be a good long term investment. There are still lots of them in the hands of Mac collectors (or just stuffed in the attic). A possible exception is the original Mac II -- 800KB floppy drive(s), original ROMs -- which has a lot of historical interest. Most Mac IIs were purchased by people who would upgrade at any cost, so original spec machines are rare. If it were boxed and complete, an original Mac II would sell for *lots*. I might even put in a bid myself. IIfxs havent dipped below $30 for a long time now, and ram for them seems to sell fast, so i assume that there's some sort of following for them.
