    PB190, is it the worst? (Probably).

    Same for me. The only reason why i was able to afford it was from having a paper route and had been saving for a long time. Once it went on sale I jumped on it. within the first year the mouse button broke and the headphone jack snapped off. Any complaints that it was cheaply made and broke easily is probably deserved. That said i have a lot of memories of finally having my own computer and not have to worry about the rules from my dad. I could download what i wanted from BBS's and risk getting a virus if i wanted to. (and i did) much to my regret i have NO memory to what i did with that laptop. Did i sale it on ebay? traded it for something on craigslist?

    Preventive recap Mac 128k & 512k

    Sure But Apple 2’s seem to be fine where as 1990-ish macs seem to be not working. So so as an order of magnitude Newer caps (maybe it being surface mount?) seem to be far worse shape then older ones Nobody is saying anything lasts for ever still YMMV

    Preventive recap Mac 128k & 512k

    Mac 128k, 512k, plus seem to have bad joints that need re-doing. everything after the Mac SE needs new caps. But the Mac SE seems to be a nice in-between spot. Good joints and good caps. YMMV in general tho. Mac SE's seem to be great starter collection items. they tend to still work and there is a lot of them.

    performa 550

    Picked up the performa 550 EvilCapitalist linked to in the ebay thread. I live near by so i was able to pick it up without having it shipped. Works great and not too dirty. Still had HDD with games like spectre and a non-working mario teaches typing. weird ram at 5MB. 4 on board, 1 in slot. Its a cute little machine. I'm thinking about putting //e card in there.

    Broken floppy drive?

    i don't know. both sound great to me. internal might just sound different because its in a bigger enclosure? (the mac)
  10. Why not try? do a test run. also, its aif. why does it matter? you can always just manually open it in whatever program on the se/30 you are using it with anyways.

    Next up...Mac 512k

    Yeah i just fixed three drives with that same problem. All with broken teeth on that one gear. its easy to pull out the eject motor and open it up and check. Its pretty obvious if thats the problem.. Somebody on ebay sells replacement 3D printed gears. otherwise, could just need a good cleaning. Maybe both.
