SOLVED. Pre PowerPC Desktop Modular Mac

Postby Beags on Wed Aug 29, 2018 5:47 pm

Hi Mac users and enthusiasts (and closet Mac envy-ists), I am looking for a modular pre Powermac Desktop, hopefully a Quadra or Centris. Just the computer itself as I have keyboard/mouse/display already. I am in the Manawatu/Wanganui area but happy to go a few kms extra to pickup.

I have my old LC II with the original box and packing material, though its a pretty underpowered machine.
Unfortunately it does not power up at all, I suspect the PSU is dead because everything else inside it looks clean and tidy.

Thanks for that Antz but the LCII just wouldn't cut it. Looking to setup a 68k server with AppleShare server 4 and do some way back software learning - like I should have done and taken the time for back when I started as a tech in '96!!!

Problem solved. Went and saw Antz and bought his PM6100/60 - Although its not 68k, I can work with that! Thanks Antz!

Gahhh if 6100/60 would have worked, that 7200/120 I have probably would have as well ;)
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.
