Hi all, new here but I am a long time vintage computer tinkerer. Have owned many classic Macs and Amiga's over the years.
I have been lucking enough to just pick up a NOS unused Macintosh LC III. It's immaculate like new, no yellowing, and no battery damage (don't worry the first thing I did was remove it.) I will of course post photos when I get round to taking some! But I was wondering if anybody can answer these questions.
Firstly, I am trying to figure out what belongs in the original box. mine has:
1 x main unit
1 x keyboard
1 x mouse
1 x microphone
1 x keyboard cable
2 x power cables
1 x VGA cable
1 x sealed bag of manuals/disks
1 x set of Mac stickers
All of the above is unused and factory tied and bagged apart from one of the two power cables. Would it have come with 2 originally? Both are UK, so it's not like a modern PC that often comes with both UK and US plugs. And also why would it have a VGA cable in the box? I think the VGA cable and one power cable do not belong with the set, but hopefully somebody can confirm. And is anything missing from the above list?
Secondly, was there supposed to be a screw holding the 'pizza box' lid on at the back of the main unit? I can see a hole for a screw but it doesn't look like there's ever been one in there, and I have looked at photos of other units on Google and can't see a screw in any photos.
Any help appreciated!
