Just joined this site and would like to introduce myself....
In 1993, I had bought my first computer which was a second-hand LC475, joined the internet and was hooked! Since then, it’s been Apple all the way and to tell the truth, I have never actually owned a PC!
Have been a Compact Mac collector hobbyist for over 12 years in Western Australia .....and at one stage had almost 30 units ranging from the 128k to the CC
Down to a few pieces now as coin collecting took over ...... ( I really do miss the Macintosh SE FDHD with 2 fully working floppy drives)
* 1 x Mac Plus - beige unit, cosmetically and running perfect - housed in original Apple carry case with a external floppy drive with a ACCELERATOR CARD?????!!!!!!!!!.....(that’s another story for anyone whose interested)!
* 1 x Mac Plus - platinum unit, cosmetically and running perfect - with external drive also with a rare HD40 with FULL software and manuals housed in a great carry bag.
* 1x CC…..20 years ago, A 80 year old lady was given this Color Classic as a present as new and “tried” to use it, after 2 weeks it was shoved back in its original boxes in storage complete with software and original trimmings…..I bought it 5 years later for $50……simply, a museum piece?
* 2x SE/30’s…..were going but unsure now, cosmetically perfect but need to drag them out at the very back of the shed and spend time with them……
Anyway, its a brief summary of this avid collector…..
The question……..At what point in the 1986-1990 period did Apple change from Beige to Platinum in the compact range notably Mac Plus??
Nice to be here…….
