I'm not sure if this is exciting to anyone else but me, but I acquired a Power Macintosh 7200/120 today! :) These machines are fairly rare in Australia :)

Specs:
Power Macintosh 7200/120 96Mb RAM 1Gb HDD Mac OS 8
Apple Color High Resolution RGB Display 640 x 480 13"

I cleaned up the file system and opened the machine up, it is very clean inside, no sign of dust at all. I bought the machine to finally solve my CF on SE/30 issue that you can read more on this thread here.

Anyway, I removed the SCSI CD-ROM and mounted the hard disk from one of my SE/30s and it worked! :) One more step towards my goal! :)
My first computer was an Apple II, I've been using Apples ever since. :) I currently own:
[*:3bt34vdv] 2 x Macintosh SE/30
[*:3bt34vdv]Power Macintosh 7200/120
[*:3bt34vdv]Apple IIc

Nice machine, plus it's got PCI slots, and that's useful. Closest thing I've got is a 7100/60. :lol:
I will continue to decipher, And make it easier for you, Behold! Let it be told, What is fiction and untrue

I will not leave you behind, With the burdens of belief, And divine misery, That means restless grief

For it is written, The times of old will come anew, And have the universe reversed to its origin, When the ancient winds blew

Nice! You don't have to remove the CD drive in order to install a second HD, there's room for it under the stock one -- usually covered by an EMI plate.

I just discovered that! Would have saved me some time if I'd read the forum before I fiddled with it! ;)

I managed to format my CF and boot up from with it! :) Success!!! :) Now on the SE/30s! :)
