Opinions on "companion" machine for a compact-only collection in Compact Mac Posted January 30 · Report reply 1 hour ago, Crutch said: Another option is to get a SCSI-to-Ethernet adapter like the Asante EN/SC. Then literally all the Macs you listed could connect to Ethernet/WiFI and FTP into whatever modern machine you want. They show up on eBay from time to time. Cheaper than getting an extra transitional machine.e Just to clarify, I'm not talking about getting another machine, just deciding which of my current machines would be best to keep and which I can let go. Not that any of the ones I'm considering selling off have much in terms of value. And somewhere, I think I still have an Asante LocalTalk-to-ethernet adapter, which is probably just as good an option for connecting any of the compacts.
