    I'm trying to figure out a notebook that i remember from when i was at secondary school.

    A teacher brought his Mac notebook in, and i was wondering what it was!

    Now what i can remember...

    It had a perspex/plastic cover on the top (lid/display), with a design underneth, quite strange...

    For some reason i think it was 75Mhz, but i can't be sure and im not even sure Apple have ever made a 75Mhz Notebook.

    It would have been in 1996.


    Any thoughts/ideas?

    You may be thinking of one of the PowerBook 500 series, which were around in the mid-nineties (we had one, not sure which) - however none of them were available with 75MHz processors, they made a leap from 33MHz to 100MHz with the introduction of the PowerPC microprocessor. Hope that helped.

    There is a database application called MacTracker available to download from the internet that has a complete catalogue of all Apple computers to date, and is updated roughly every three months.

    If he used it in 1996 is no help, we would need to no when he purchased it.

    The PowerBook 1400 had removable "BookCovers" so you could customise them.
    They were made from November 96 to July 97 and started with a 117Mhz processor.

    I'm not sure about now, but 12 - 18 months ago I was looking for one to run a basic music app and they were hard to find. They went for a surprisingly good price.
