    Weird. Maybe it was having one of "those" days

    Do you not have an original LC in your collection? I see from your signature you have an LCII and LCIII.

    You and me both. I have a couple of LCIIs, a couple of LCIIIs, and an LC475, I'd like an original LC just to complete the collection. I guess as an "LCGuy" I really should complete the set.
    Good. Fast. Cheap. Pick two...

    You noobs! I think I have two or three LC's but doubt if any work. Don't have any LCII or LCIII etc (only other is a Performa 400, which I think is technically a rebadged LCII)??

    I thought the same as well but I am discovering that you are better off having a smaller number but better looked after collection.

    I am having fun now where everything I touch requires repair.

    I pulled this 128 out a week ago and it's taken me that long to get it up and running. Just have to find the boot disk now...

    I agree, too many Macs = too little time to spend on each one and maintain it. I can only assume those with dozens of machines have many out of action. I find stockpiling things like spare HDs, RAM, LCD, motherboards the way to go too. I recently showed leon my 128K which promptly came up with a faulty RAM chip (bit rot) in about five minutes of use. Thankfully, a donor 512K board is there ready for this sort of repair, I can use the RAM from that (detected at 1/2 the size on a 128K board).

    tim, your 128K - is your RAM socketed, and is that a ghetto 512K upgrade on the board?

    My Macintosh 128k (first version) has the exact same 512k upgrade as pictured above. Identical.

    Additionally, the more machines the harder to maintain and enjoy - certainly in my case.

    The ram is socketed so I guess it's the original board with a ram boost.

    By the way, this Mac originally came from WA so maybe had the same owner and mod?

    I have also pulled out another 128 mac with a scuzzy port on the back where the battery should be. I had a look inside and there is a Mac Rescue board sitting there.

    Who said these early Mac's weren't expandable?

    I picked up eight or so of these 128k's (with those upgrades). I kept one and sold the rest so I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of my old ones.

    Nothing! I am actually a little embarrassed because I should have cleaned off the dust before I took some iPad pictures.

    I got it about 8 years ago so quite possibly. It was sold with a 512k machine as well and I said they could keep it!

    I have the LCs, no pizza-box performas...

    I wish I had a 128k. The closest thing I've got was a 128k/original mac (it just says 'macintosh' on the back) but somebody drilled it out so they could fit a Plus board in there instead.

    I do have 3 512ks, all of which (last time I checked) work...

    What's the Mac Rescue board?

    The Mac Rescue upgrades your 128 or 512 ram and gives you a scsi port where the battery was.
