So I posted in For Sale the other day that I had a 9600/300 and a 8600/300 for sale, but I knew very little about them. Well tonight I cracked them open and started playing with them. The 8600 booted, first try into os9.. but it wasn't the 9 I'm used to. Turns out the machine was used by a major animation company and had early sketches and other art work on it from movies that were released fairly recently. Most of the files were dated before 2001. The 9600 will not go past the "OS folder ?" thingy. Obviously the files on the 8600 need wiped before I sell it, but how much of the 8600 and 9600 can be put together? Is there any difference between the cpu in the 8600 and that in the 9600? Is the ram exchangeable? Quite a neat find, though I did feel guilty about snooping thru the harddrive.
