They all use 30-pin non-parity SIMMs, so in that respect they are compatible, but they are not always going to be the right capacity.

A SE can only use 256KB or 1MB SIMMs, which are not going to be as useful in a Classic II. Memory in a SE might also be too slow for a Classic II.

The Classic II and Color Classic use the same type of SIMMs (1MB or 4MB) and you can move memory between these two machines reliably.

Maximum memory for a Classic II is 2MB onboard + 2x 4MB SIMMs for 10 MB total.

These days you need to be at

These days you need to be at the MAX memroy that whatever model you have can support.


I have a Classic II that I need to figure out why it isn't working...  I just haven't had time to look at it.
