The Macintosh Portable
Took delivery of a skidload of apple stuff just before xmas as i knew i would have some time then. Fixed up the imacs and B & W's to dispose off and broke up most of the other stuff into the parts bins. Did get some nice old bits, including some machines i have not owned before like an 8550 (appleshare file server) an 8500 MP, a 5300 and two 3400 powerbooks, which should prove interesting. Also some G3 400 cpus so the beige G3 and the all in one G3 can get a speed boost. Quite liking the AIO machine.
At the bottom of the pile was a macintosh portable in pieces but once i put all the plastic parts back together it looks complete.
There are two batteries and two power supplies and even the odd HD connector along with a circuit board from a hard disk. The portable was a 16 lb machine that used a conner 40 mb hard drive. In the old drive box i found 3 conner drives of a similar type. Switching a formatted 6.02 drive onto the circuit board might do the trick.
However, I also seem to recall the machine cannot power up on AC if the battery is run down. This poses a problem. How to recharge the battery when the AC cannot power up to recharge.
Best find the service manuals first and do some research before touching this baby...
