    6500/275

    Got a nicely kept, 1 owner from new macintosh 6500/275 from eBay locally last weekend. The chap a graphic designer specified it well with internal zip drive, full ram, upgraded hhd, graphics tablet, tv card and a bunch of software like illustrator, photoshop etc all for £65 or approx $90 in us speak. Seems like a good all round bridge machine, even came with a bunch of cables plus keyboard and mouse. Don’t know much about the 6500?

    6500/275

    Ok so i came across this on eBay for £65 or about $90. Owned from new by seller. Well I brought it, will be collecting tomorrow. Know very little about these machines. Its really a replacement for my 6200cd bridge machine as thats painfully slow online. I use it mainly for macintoshgarden type stuff bridging my se/30 and G3 iMac as they can’t speak to each other directly. I figured 275mhz was better than 75mhz for going online, it also has an internal zip, more ram, and a bigger hhd among other things as well as a bunch of software. Anyone know anything about these things. also anyone uk based interested in my beautiful condition and fully refurbished 6200cd?

    SE/30 new ROM and other things

    I was lucky my se/30 (without knowing at the time) came with a network card, the seller didn’t know either as he sold my se/30 including card for £60. it’s worth a look there’s been some inventive ways of getting them online so have a search through the site. If you have another mac you can use apple talk to a new machine as a pass through but its very slow. Best to keep an eye out on eBay for a bargain. Here’s mine online

    SE/30 new ROM and other things

    I use 7.5.5 For networking and internet as well as later desk top publishing like photoshop 4.1 i have my Se/30 online and the networking is more advanced and it also allowed a later browser that just about works in the modern world (just)

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Watched it all. Great job it gives me the heads up before i go ahead and try it myself and what tools i may need, I’m still a bit worried as I’ve not done this before but you have to start somewhere and having 30 yr old electronics as a hobby i need to try. I have a rev 1 board from an SE I figure i try it on there then repay my original board afterwards once i get my confidence:)

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Fabulous us novices would be lost without good folks like yourself! I’ve saved it to my home screen for now as I’ll be looking to perform the surgery in 4-5 weeks time (several commitments over the next 3 weekends thanks to the wife). Luckily i paid to have the motherboard done so just the analogue board and Sony PSU like your vid which i want to do myself

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Great thank you JDW thats just what i needed. Ive only just ordered a soldering iron so a complete novice. Would you also have a component list with the values to hand as well so i know I’m ordering the right caps and diodes?

    You have a few other compacts, a plus? What do you do with those? Nice idea the scsi in the sc20 case

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Wow i like the sound of your setup I would definitely like several os’s as there’s some games I want that won’t work on 7.5.5 that i want. I’ve just brought an analogue board and power supply which I’m looking to re cap soon and change over as I’m getting a bit of screen wobble/flicker so after that i’ll look at hhd and fresh installs, also scsi2sd at the same time but both the later options may not be until next year after house move. I already have 128mb ram but no accelerator. ah well i have a few pics already

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Blimey you have your system setup sweet, I didn’t think you could even run 7.6.1 or 8.1 without accelerators and hacks. i’d like to be able to run multiple OS on mine although only considered 6.06, 7.1 & 7.5.5. how did you install all of those? how do format your hard drives into the correct sizes for each os? i have 1gb internal hd & scsi avid external 2gb hd, zip drive and have it networked to my PowerPc and g3 imac.
