galgot's "new" stuff


Recommended Posts

Long time I didn’t add a « new » machine in this thread.

So here a nice Duo 230 I just got from BadGoldEagle (Good actually), thank you Sir, run beautifully thanks also to our distinguished Bibilit who repaired the HD.
Will change the broken lid lock with one from a 210 wreck .

Not new in the collection, but now I have it working finally cause I’ve changed the main board , is my Clamshell key Lime. So I now have four colors running :) :

Have a soft spot for Wallstreet/PDQs. that one was missing in my collection.

It’s a PowerBook G3 « Mainstreet », The cacheless 233Mhz model, with a 12.1 passive display, no S-Video out, no modem… A dog. Listed as one of 10 worst Macs ever build :p

Not so easy to find here (France), most of the Wally/PDQs I see for sale are latter or upper-level 233 w.512cache, 250, 266, 292, 300 models with active screens. Happy to have that one.
True , the case is not in the best shape, and I got it with the two hinges broken.
Replaced left one with a good one, and the right one with my experimental carbon loaded 3d printed hinge piece. So far it stays in place.

Interesting, I wonder if they compared it to the Kanga? What else was on the list besides the LC and CC? ;)

 

A Bevy-o-Beautiful 'Books on this page, congrats!

Thanks Sirs .

It compared bad with the mighty Kanga :p It scored 445 with MacBench , when the Kanga scored 747.

The second serie 233 Mhz Wally with cache did 764.

Interesting read on LEM :

http://lowendmac.com/1999/cacheless-mainstreet-powerbook-g3-233-road-apple/

And it's strange to see a Wally with that small passive screen. Same res as a Kanga at 800x600, but with a ugly passive screen, and inside a screen case much larger ... looks stupid, but worth having for a Powerbook nut like me.

 

Found that list on LEM too :

But there are other :

I have one of those. Make sure you have the floppy drive installed instead of the more useful CDROM to complete the look.
