PowerBook 2400c with goodies

Recommended Posts

I bought this lot because it included very uncommon accessories: the fabled Yu-Plan keyboards. Years ago I heard tell of a green variant of this keyboard but almost never see reference to it anywhere, let alone one available for sale, even though they're US-standard layout. Mine are not green, but apparently there were at least two options available: a black version and a clear version. The computer itself is in excellent shape (and has been upgraded to a 320MHz G3 and 112MB of RAM) and has the black one installed, leaving a clear one for me to install on a different machine. 

 

Also included were two extra displays and the guts of another mostly stock 2400c/180 (no idea where the rest of it went), two floppy drives, a few non-Apple accessories, and the PowerBook 2400c Perfect Guide, a Japanese book detailing the development history of the 2400 series and cataloging all of the accessories and popular modifications available for it.

Pictures! The installed one is difficult to discern from the stock keyboard at first, but you'll quickly notice that it has two Cmd keys instead of just the one, a shorter space bar, and some of the other keys have a slightly different shape to the original keyboard. In use, the Caps Lock LED is a bright blue instead of the standard green.

 

The clear one is with its original box. I have the original box for the black one as well which currently houses the stock JIS and also a US-model keyboard.
