Well it turned and I've given it a a bit of a clean and it looks a bit better. Indeed it does boot up as advertised. Has to give the mouse rollers a bit of a clean too achieve a smooth action. Quite please. Most of disks that came with it are HD with Mac OS 7 & 7.5, MS Word 6 and Excel for Mac, HyperCard, as well as some printer and Pascal disks.
Turned out the seller and his wife were looking at a house in Foxton.
