Collection growing!

Jan 032018

To start off this post, Happy New Year! 2018 will bring lots of great things, including more macs!

I recently acquired two new items for my apple collection; a Macintosh Classic from 1991 and a Macintosh Plus from 1986! I bought these items off Craigslist, and (coincidentally) picked them up at the same Starbucks location each time, even though they were separate trips.

Regarding the CL sellers, they were both not serial killers (haha, just joking), quick to respond to emails, and professional. They were both young guys like me; great to see I'm not the only young guy with an obsession for old apples!

The machines themselves were great finds! The lot and specs for each listed below:

 

1991 Macintosh Classic, picked up early december

Specs aren't really important, aside from the fully maxed out 4mb of ram.

Included the keyboard, mouse, 40mb hard drive, floppy disks, and all the cables. Everything works.

Pictures of the restoration process (still being done) can be seen on my Instagram (link at the bottom)

 

1986 Macintosh Plus, picked up a couple weeks later

Maxed out also to 4mb of ram

Included the keyboard, aftermarket mouse, Apple 20SC HD (the optional 20mb apple hard drive), an extra non functional scsi hard drive, and all the cables. Everything except for the extra drive works (I'll just replace the scsi drive soon).
