Torbar's Conquests

Recommended Posts

Figure doing a conquest topic seems to be a trend, so I figure I'll do one too rather than individual topics for each find.

 

A buddy of mine was looking for a compact Mac to hook up to his Emulator II synth since the software for it was only written for classic Mac OS, so in keeping an eye out I found 2 SEs on craigslist for $50 total.  No keyboard/mouse, untested, but they looked to be in decent enough shape, so we took the gamble and went halvsies on them.

Both are pretty much a base model, 1MB of RAM, 800k drive, 20?MB HD.  They belonged to a copy shop and have sat in boxes in storage for the past ~30 years

Popped them open, no leaking battery(they were the soldered on battery, idk if those are less likely to leak?), removed the batteries, and they powered on no issue for the first time in almost 3 decades.  Hard drives were dead and the floppy drives needed a good cleaning, but popped a scsi2sd in and was able to run 6.0.8 on them no issue.  Probably going to see if I have some extra RAM lying around and do an upgrade of mine to 4MB

That was you? I should have known! I’m going to check out their Classic II today. They said someone was interested in those SEs when I had inquired.

I was surprised you didn't grab them before me!

Good luck with the Classic, looks to be in decent shape from the pictures

By the time I saw the ad, they said someone was already coming to look at them. I’m just glad they went to a good home. Looking forward to seeing what becomes of them!
