  1. I was a die hard fan on the se/30 - perfect size and form, easy to get into and work on. Expanded mine with everything from networking to an accelerator and a graphics card, however - it lost its compact sense in a way. The CCII is a tradeoff between it's compactness and power. At this point, the CCII is just as fast and offers the exact same thing a SE/30 + 40Mhz 030 accelerator + graphics card + external screen does in less desk space, while only loosing external floppy drive support (and some minuses on ease-of-access to the floppy drive and HDD - you have to remove the analog board and sh
  2. The logic board is now fully recapped and the baby performs nicely, with the buzzing sound being gone now after the recap! Graphic performance seems to be 2X of my 40Mhz's SE/30 and wolfenstein is a ton more smoother on it than on my external graphics card for the se/30.
  3. As far as software goes, on my se/30 I daily use the following: Think-C 7 for programming Photoshop 3, design and art for my games Excel 4.0 IRCle MacSSH Netscape 2.0 (and rarely icab) Quicktime Movie player 2 with QuickTime 4 extension for listening to music and watching videos StuffIt Expander/DropStuff and DiskCopy for mounting images and extracting them (new software install). As for games, I started keeping track of games that run on a Compact Mac screen resolution. By no means complete, but it's growing nicely. Once I get my CCII
  4. 6.5" (1.97m)! We're all really tall bastards that use compact macs, aren't we?
  5. Not sure if you can fit a color classic + keyboard on that one but I'd like it as my retro Mac desk in a tiny tiny office. It even has place to put all my boxed games!
  6. Color Classic II arrived. A corner bit of plastic broke in shipping and that bit that broke off broke into a gazillion piece. Can't even puzzle it back together. Other than this, the Logic Board needs recapping and the speaker produces an extremely loud high pitch noise. I validated that it's the speaker by plugging an external one into audio out and the noise is generated on the external speaker. Floppy drive ejects and injects fine but doesn't read any floppy disk and makes a weird ticking noise. Broken corner aside it works and looks really well. It's on par my with
  7. Customs payment has been performed (I ended up paying just VAT) on it, due to Romania having a trade deal with Japan and I don't have to pay other taxes on it. Aka bring on the buyee buying spree now that I know this :D. From tracking, it seems it already reached hungary aftering visiting Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Belgium and France. Next travel it will bring it to Bucharest and my apartment. This weekend can't pass fast enough
  8. After some back and forth with buyee employs about shipping option, the package is now ready to ship via fedex with a 1 week estimation. I went for protective packaging to make sure it arrives okay and woo! Now to kill time for a week before I get it by making a list of games that run in the compact mac resolution. Cannot wait for it to get here!
  9. It's a great idea to be honest that takes advantage of the compact's form factor. However it would last less than 10 minutes in my household due to my loving cats jumping and tilting it to the ground. Still, looking forward to the next iterations, you're onto something here. I for one would buy a desk/stand/pedestal designed specifically for our beloved compacts
  10. @Nathan_A payback time here: https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/t803429738
  11. Uff, I need to spend more time on buyee then. I literary just joined for the CCII after @joshc win for a "junk" one. Hopefully I won't block your bids from now on, but seeing as I'mma upgrade form my SE/30 to a CCII, I'll probably just look for CCII accessories or LC PDS things. I'm also incredibly surprised by the things I saw casually browsing it and at what prices (even with import tax and shipping still a ton bellow ebay prices).
  12. The condition of those monitors is pretty good! Well done
  13. Haha, to be fair, up till the last hour my bid was around 100$ and it didn't seem like it was going to pass it. By pure luck I had a meeting postponed and I could follow the auction and saw the pace it was increasing at. I was playing with my snipe bid up until the last 5 minutes to stay on top of it and if the price went up higher even by a few $ it would have been just out of my budget considering transport + taxes. These buyee auctions really are something xD. Tell you what, if I ever upgrade from it I'll put you first on the list to get it. I did the same with @mg.man and a memory exp
  14. Got it, then I'mma get both of them recapped as a first priority. The PRAM battery IIRC is like a regular se/30's one and I have brand new ones prepared to replace them. The only thing left is the voltage? I wonder if I need a convertor to use Japan voltages in EU or if the CCII works at an EU voltage.
  15. Is the case more brittle than a CCI's plastics? I do hope the seller can ship it properly to the buyee warehouse. From there I can pay extra for really really good packaging and go for air mail to ensure as little time as possible in shipment. Coming from you I feel even more excited about this now :D! Edit: for the analogue board, would I need to have that one recapped too?
