  1. The TI-89 also has a 68000! Now I'm tempted to try to do more with mine besides just teach calculus with it!!
  2. Following. I have a 550 with no sound. It hasn't been re-capped though, as I just got it on Saturday.
  3. To me it makes more sense for the IIc, which also has its own bag but has a keyboard built in and can be attached to any TV. Still, if I need to go somewhere in a hurry, I can always put the LC in the bag and take it with me!!
  4. Yes, those are Mac monitors. The easy way to tell a IIGS monitor is the power light. On a Mac, it's a rectangle. On a IIGS, it's a parallelogram, with the short sides parallel to the top and bottom of the display.
  5. There exists a bag specifically for the LC and a 12" monitor. I actually have one of these--got an LCII in it some time ago.
  6. I've used three cartridges and the alcohol trick, so I'm guessing the contact may be the issue. I could always find another StyleWriter and swap some parts around to see if it would work.
  7. Sadly, no...still looking for solutions here!!
  8. Here's an idea for anyone who is good with HyperCard and MacroMind Director...how about a challenge to see who can come up with a new expansion room for Spelunx? The program was designed to be expanded, as evidenced by the builder. All copies of Spelunx came with just three rooms, but apparently there were more in the works. (There was also evidently a DOS version in the works at one time...source for that is the color Spelunx manual). I've thought about this for years, especially as an educator who sees the value behind the activities of Spelunx and would have loved to
  9. Do any of these disks contain a program called Dinosaur Days? I've been looking for that one for 25 years!!
  10. Good news for you: I did a thread on them a long time ago!! I get a feeling the board may have been replaced at some point, but still...check out the case/details here!!
  11. It looks like the case is textured. Many prototypes don't have a textured case, although there are varying cases within prototypes based on which stage they are in. Most everyone knows about the clear-case SE prototype. There exists an earlier prototype of the SE, which is beige, has no texture to its case, has no port icons (another telltale sign), has a Mac Plus brightness knob, and has a serial number indicating November 1986 as its date. (The serial sticker appears to be hand-made on a printer). I know of at least two of these still in existence (one of them is mine and is beli
  12. Having two Macs is never a bad thing. They're very comparable, as everyone has said. You may want to pick up a pair of LocalTalk or PhoneNet boxes and play around with networking them. In terms of the Plus vs SE debate, don't forget the Classic is also comparable. Its advantages are RAM expansion being easier (as long as you have the card) since no Classic board used resistors and its screen being easier to adjust without taking the case off. The ROM disk is also a nice perk. However, the Classic is notorious for capacitor problems and has design limitations based on it being the c
  13. Glad to see this happening to my old CC!!
  14. Regarding screws: I have a no-CD LC 550 which has its original packing list. 2 screws are mentioned on there, but they're practically the only part missing. I had to put two of my spares on myself since the tabs are broken. Aside from that and some yellowing though, the computer is in immaculate condition, albeit with brittle plastics...it's re-capped and I'm actually going to be selling it this week if anyone's interested...so keep your eye on the trading post!! I've had an LC since it was new and there was no screw in the box. On the topic of LC durability, the Class
