    Macintosh Portable

    What was its battery power like?

    Macintosh Quadra 700

    This was a good machine. I remember using Adobe Illustrator on one of these things.

    Macintosh IIx Macintosh IIfx & Macintosh IICi

    I think I first started learning computers and desktop publishing on the IIci back in... 1991.
  4. I am not. Never did such work in my life.
  5. Hey guys, it's been over four years and a lot has happened since this thread was last active. I suffered a prolonged un- / under-employment drought, and a bout with homelessness. Fortunately, things are currently looking up again (hopefully). I'm wondering: IF I decided to pursue this in the near future, would it still be possible to resurrect my ancient IIcx? I'm asking more out of curiosity right now since my "power" machines are the ones that need more immediate attention. Thanks guys for being a cool group and for entertaining my questions.
  6. Ha... alright Elfen. And thanks y'all. As a famous cybernetic organism once said, I'll be back. First.. I need to get re-employed.

    Oh and what gives with that super-modern keyboard? Never saw anything like that back then.

    Your machines look like they just came out of the box. H... how?!?

    Macintosh Portable

    Man what year was this??

    iMac G3 Blu Bondi

    Ahh... looks like my little Mothra (the name for my original iMac that I no longer have).

    PowerBook 150

    Man... love your old stuff bro. Wish I'd saved my original turquoise (bondi blue) iMac.
  12. Guys, I don't know what to say. What a wealth of responses. I'm currently unemployed, so right now that all's a luxury. But, now that I know there's a chance I can get this old dog functioning again, I will come back to address it. Thank you guys so much. I met my late wife through that machine in an old AOL IM session. I'd love to see if I have any saved chat files that are recoverable. Even if not, the box has nostalgic value for me. I love the feel of the keyboard. And, just seeing System 7 again and hearing the little monkey chime would be cool. For the record, what could be done with a machine like this? Oh... and what's 'recapping', a phrase I'm seeing constantly in these fora?
  13. I bought this machine used in the late 90s just to jump onto the internet. Cost me $200 in... 1997? Anyway, since then I bought more updated Macs and currently have a 5yo Macbook Pro. That all being said, I'd love to see if this old machine's still usable and what could be done with it. I tried starting it up once, maybe... 8 or 9 years ago? But I got no video signal. I figure either my video adaptor thingie's settings were wrong, or something's wrong with the Mac itself. I'm in the Los Angeles area. If anyone knows anyone/anything that could be a source of guidance, I'd love to know about it. Thanks.
