    LC III Box Contents?

    Sorry I was referring to the common practice of overclocking the 25mhz CPUs to 33mhz.

    Interesting, I don't plan to use it but I imagine overlocking a 16mhz CPU to 33mhz wouldn't be a good idea!

    Yes I've also noticed that unused capacitors tend not to leak, lucky I guess for collectors! Here's the battery that was in it, no signs of leakage. It doesn't have a use by date but it is stamped 1993 on the back Here's a close up of the processor for you, anything interesting about it?

    Finally got time to check it properly and take some photos. There was indeed a packing list in there, it is supposed to come with 2 power cords for some reason, but no VGA cable so that doesn't belong with the set. Here's some photos, hope you enjoy

    Thanks, can't see a packing list so maybe it's missing or didn't come with the LC III (or is in the sealed bag of manuals?) yes all NOS, one of the power cables is untied but doesn't look like it's been used.

    Yes that would seem logical. I know many Macs of this era had a built in screen eg the Color Classic, so I don't know much about how they packaged desktops.

    Thanks guys. Can anybody comment on whether desktop Macs of this era (not necessarily the LC series) came with monitor power and display cables?

    LC III Box Contents?

    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!
