    I'm looking at getting an old powermac 9600 just to play around with... does anybody know how many 3.5" slots there are for HDs? I just read about them, they're so cool, 12 Ram slots, all SCSI stuff, its cool! thanks for any help and if anyone has one i might be interested in buying it

    i'd suggest a "new world" mac (imac or higher) rather than an "old world" since operating systems are easier to install and parts tend to be less expensive (ie memory, hard disk)

    I briefly looked through Apple History and haven't found much info on it although it looks like there's only one hard drive bay, sorry. :(
