  1. Revenge of the Clones

    I kind of wonder what clones would lave looked like in the 68030 era. Few of the PPC era ones (except for the Radius 81/110 and that 4 CPU Daystar one) looked interesting.
  2. Any opinions on new Ebay RAM?

    I buy new RAM from ebay all the time, rarely have issues. 512MB is pretty good for OS 9 even with demanding apps. I still have 4 x 128MB Powermac DIMMs still in the shrinkwrap last time I seen a sale. Sooner or later supply will run out and then prices will rise.
  3. ProtoCache1.1 - IIsi/SE/30 PowerCache Adapter Prototype

    Which style do you recommend for a Daystar 040 and Ethernet? I think I might be down for 2 units for both my machines.
  4. ProtoCache1.1 - IIsi/SE/30 PowerCache Adapter Prototype

    Cool. How much are those adapters going to cost?
  5. CC's Latest...

    50 pin SCSI HDs that work are a prize these days. SE's with superdrives have extra space for CPU PDS board upgrades.
  6. Quadra 950 NuBus issues.

    Try it with the external terminator off. The only issue I have with a Jackhammer and a 950 was one that quit working which I think might have had the 68 pin cable pinched by the door.
  7. Does the SE/30 live up to the hype?

    The SE and SE30's are the only compacts I have. While 4MB is a bit limited on an SE it does work great for OS 6 and 7.1 and all the old programs will run. Sticking a Radius 020 accelerator inside speeds things up as well.
  8. Does the SE/30 live up to the hype?

    SCSI2SD are what $60 a pop, Ethernet is $120+, recap is $50, retrobrite no idea so I can see $300-400. I just looked on ebay and non working units can fetch $50 plus shipping.
  9. Does the SE/30 live up to the hype?

    Sure and You don't recommend a IIfx or an 840AV either I assume for the same reasons? Models are popular for a reason, people want to use them. Stock SE/30's can still be found at a reasonable price and are usable as is. Same with a SE (but I prefer the superdrive models more then the 800K ones).
  10. Does the SE/30 live up to the hype?

    Easy to expand (Ethernet anyway) and has a much higher memory ceiling.
  11. Quicksilver!

    The single CPU QS make very good OS 9 machines.
  12. Quicksilver!

    128GB is a decent amount of space for OS9/OSX10.4 apps anyway.
  13. Power Macintosh G3 Minitower Upgrades

    There are 4MB RAM upgrades for the built in video (if none are installed already). USB cards are nice to have if you want an optical mouse.
  14. Even without major upgrades they are both nice compact usable machines.
  15. IIci if you have a 68040 upgrade. I have both models and if you are going to use a video card built in video isn't that important. You can get a 68040 in a IIcx if the CPU is socketed and you have a hard to find Daystar adapter.
