I was walking with the fam a few weeks ago and found a dirty LC III on the side of the road.
-Broken auto-inject floppy (despite a break down, lube, etc, repair attempt)
-160MB Hard Drive
-Came with VGA adapter screwed into the back monitor port
-32MB Ram Simm inserted
-Dirt was just that, machine wasn't banged or scuffed up so it cleaned up really nicely. Minimal yellowing
-Came with Kid Pix installed
I am having a blast and a trip down nostalgia row with this machine, because my first mac was a Perfoma 450.
So far I have:
-Replaced the floppy drive with a working unit from ebay
-Added 256k VRAM simm to max out system VRAM
-Replaced PRAM battery
Future Plans Include:
-Order external SCSI CD Rom drive
-Upgrade OS to 7.5.5
-Load up with great games and programs of the era from the Macintosh Garden
-Overclock to 33mHz
-Try to find a "period correct" monitor (using a small Samsung TV with a PC input right now, which works great but looks a little off)
Any tips or ideas for this great little pizza box mac?
