I'm really curious about these things in australia, so I'm posting to get other peoples experiences :)

So far I've seen LC pizzabox cases in the following types

The first LC - I've only seen them in the dual-floppy pizzabox case, with a groove running right across the front, and marked "Macintosh LC"

LC II, LC III and LC475 (plus the performa versions). I've seen all of these now in both the single floppy grooved look, AND in the flat-fronted fishmouth type floppy opening. It seems pretty rare to get an LCII in the new style case (as at http://www.danamania.com/temp/lc2-2.jpg ) and rare too to get an LC475 in the grooved type front (as at http://maccouncil.proboards28.com/index.cg...&num=1077925489 (http://maccouncil.proboards28.com/index.cgi?board=gallery&action=display&num=1077925489) ). I have a few LCIIIs in both styles too.

Quadra 605s - only ever seen those in the Q605 only type case, with the more bubbly front, single floppy, no groove, fishmouth look. cutest of them all IMHO :)

Now - anyone else here seen a grooved-front LC475 like the above pic in australia? or a flat-fronted LCII here? So far mine's the only one I've come across, apart from one other blurry photo googled at a US school. Anyone seen Q605s in a different style case than http://www.danamania.com/gallery/beige/aaz ?

thanks!

Hi dana,

yet to come across a 'grooved' 475 in my collection, but have seen LC I and II machines in both case formats.

On this note, I've seen one Q605 with 'curved' top mounted ventilation holes. All 475s have had 'straight' slots. Come across any like this?

Aye, all my Q605s have the curved slots at the back (with a basically flat top, like the pics). I've not seen any other models in the Q605 case though

I see ... must say, never come across (read: found) any Q605s, although a friend has one. 475s are all the go here in Victoria!

My first Mac, an LCII was a single Floppy with the line going across the front.

Haven't seen a Q605 IRL. It seems that LC475s are also all the go here in QLD. I've seen that manual inject LCII though...its cool. :)

I do believe that I have seen a 605 in the "475 style" case, the one with the single foot and the fishmouth floppy.

*(I believe that that's the first i've heard of a good way to describe that floppy slot, good job! :) )
