I managed to get a couple of deals lately.
The first I'm not sure is a deal but it's a Macintosh Portable M5126. It needs recapping and boots to a sad Mac. I need to figure out who provides recapping service. Is there anyone in Canada? The interesting part about this one is that it has the num pad instead of the built in mouse roller ball. I thought $140 plus shipping was a little high but I figured backlit models are not as prevalent as non-backlit?
Also, there's a couple of M0001 Macintosh 128ks.
These were on eBay and were cheap. First is an M0001 that is verified to be an original board. It said "Blown CRT" so I bought a flyback transformer but haven't yet installed it. I will replace the filter cap that has smoked (as the owner mentioned) and check the solder joints first. Got this for $60 plus shipping.
Second was one I just got today. I can't confirm if it has the original 128k board but we'll soon find out. Seller claims that it bongs but no screen. Tapping the top will make the picture work for a second. Sounds like solder joints. Paid $20 plus shipping (which was $75 but I'll live with that).
You can still find deals out there.
