Just a bit of nostalgia. The new Mining Museum in Leadville CO has a Mac Classic on display with the back exposed - To demonstrate modern technology's dependence on mined minerals. Here it is:

Mmmmm Classic! It still looks better than most PCs today. I had one with 4 megs of RAM. I traded it for a CB Radio When I bought a PowerBook 360. I wonder if the mono video tube would be working if I had kept it.


It's bad luck to be superstitious.

Mine still works. I use it for friends who find documents on old 400K or 800K floppies that they want to recover but have nothing to read them. Love putting the old baby through her paces.

I still have one. I had Woz sign it the first time he came to MacGroup to speak.

It's one of my Museum Pieces.
