  1. Probably because more than one voltage is present there, my guess is that the connector is able to carry + 5volts and +12volts as well. Think i have a psu at home, can have a look at it.

    PowerBook 5300ce

    IIRC only a new casing for fragile/broken hinges. Mine was repaired, no sticker, but a white label with "AA" on it.
  4. Hi, Looking information about this card for the Apple IIe. Detected as a 80 column card and sockets are provided probably to insert some Ram chips. I have not been able to find any information online (only the Wildcard from the same company is documented),if anyone has a manual or information concerning the jumpers position, i will appreciate.

    This is the equivalent of the Kensington anchor plate.

    What are the cases made from? how are they finished?

    Cases were made of ABS, insides where black or dark grey and probably painted. The Portable for instance was painted silver/chrome plated look in the inside.

    Value of Apple IIc?

    Bought one a couple of months ago for 200 €, same specs you are describing yours (didn't get boxes with it, but sold with an Apple Joystick) mine was probably cheap, so an average price of 300 $ is correct.

    Upgrade from a 128k to a Mac Plus?

    Yes very early unit, had this small piece of metal also.
  13. I have been handed a Powerbook 170 to have a look at it. The Powerbook was not powering up and obviously the PSU connector was shorted (my replacement PSU included a LED, and this was flickering when connected) Under the Logic Board, a diode was shorted (D16) but it was impossible to find a label on it. Fortunately, Ferrix97 posted a video with this same problem, giving a valid substitute (1N4007)... the Powerbook booted right away. probably someone used a power brick with inverted polarity at some point.

    Pre-Production LC

    I have got one or two of those myself, including stickers on all Roms. Apparently pretty common, probably early models where released with the cuda switch, stickers and this big cap. Later models had lost those features, apart from that, they are just standard units.

    Quantum Prodrive possible repair

    I have removed this part from two drives to get them working again. No issue so far.
