    Macintosh Plus... or is it?

    Thanks for all of the information, everyone. I am pretty happy with it. It's a nice machine. It will get a place of honor in my home. I usually like to keep a compact Mac or two out on my desk. Traditionally, I always have kept one of my Classic II's out. I keep them loaded up with games, but as of a few months ago, they had both succumb to leaky capacitors. I guess I have my next project.

    Macintosh Plus... or is it?

    Hey Everyone, I've been an on and off poster and a frequent lurker since 2005. I've got a bit of an odd conquest. I won an eBay auction from the local Goodwill. I am going to use the eBay images for this post. The auction was for a Macintosh Plus, as is clearly visible in this photo: But things get a bit more strange if you look at the whole setup. The model number is M0001 (which is the model number for the original Macintosh 128k) rather than the M0001A for the Macintosh Plus. The serial number comes back to the following: Your Macintosh 128 (M0001), with serial number F41542LM0001, was the 4712d manufactured during the 15th week of 1984 in Fremont, CA. The keyboard is a M0110 (the keyboard for the Macintosh 128). And the auction came with both a manual for the Macintosh Plus and the original Mac. So what do you folks think is going on here? Did somebody do some weird upgrade? Did they merge the rear of a Plus and the front of a 128? I own two actual Macintosh Pluses, and am pretty familiar with the compact macs, but I've never seen this before.

    SE/30 Revival progress

    Thank you for documenting this process so well. A great little resource. I've enjoyed reading and watching this whole accomplishment. Congratulations.

    God of Keyboards

    Congratulations. Loving that price. I am typing this reply on an original 1984 IBM Model M. In fact, we have a number of them still in use here at my school.
  5. I hardly ever find anything remotely tech related at my local Goodwill. If anything, it's old toasters and a keyboard or two. I have had better luck from locally owned thrift stores in different communities I've traveled to. My best finds come from a little thrift store outside Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Washington. Mostly military surplus, books, and mac stuff. I also have a lot of software from a corner thrift store I used to visit as a kid in Chicago.
  6. It's always great to find a Mac in that condition. Particularly with those accessories. Plus, you can't beat that price.

    My Classic II Webserver is Now Live

    Very neat little project. Something I have considered doing on one of my Classic IIs. Perhaps I will one of these days. Let us know if you ever put it back online. I'd be eager to have a look at it.

    Powerbook Duo 270c - Mac newbie, need help please :)

    Congratulations. That is a great little machine. I too have a Duo 270c. I have a setup with the Duo MiniDock. It looks something like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/53/Duominidock.jpg Occasionally, these floppy drives pop up on eBay: http://www.vectronicsappleworld.com/collection/articlepics/duo2300/snap11.jpg

    That's quite the find. Great job on the work you did, too. Where did you find such a find?

    I remember using these in school. We actually had one with this type of faceplate.

    Wow! That is very impressive. Congratulations! I can't wait to hear about the hidden treasures you find. But yeah, that beats my collection instantaneously.

    Just got a big sentimental score!

    Yes, the IIsi is also a great machine. I rescued mine from being scrapped at recycling event. It has been a great machine.

    Just got a big sentimental score!

    Exactly what I have been thinking! I do really like the small size of these machines. Easier to have them out in a small apartment.
