    I opened MacTracker and it says that the original release was either 87 or 89 depending on the model.

    heh. No bids on his eBay auction. Then again, he was asking $300. I've seen mint 128k's go for less than that. (Without their box.)

    I see SEs at Goodwill from time to time for $5, fully functional.

    Oh, and it has two floppy slots, so it *HAS* to be an SE, not an SE/30. The lack of an "FDHD" or "SuperDrive" label under the "Macintosh SE" label means that it has low-density (800k) floppy drives, so it's 1987-1989. Not only is he overestimating its value, he's even underestimating its age.

    Yup. Just to clarify:
    • SE, 1 800K floppy drive + HDD (several sizes, starting at 20MB)
    • SE, 2 800K floppy drives and no HDD
    • SE, 1 1440K floppy drive + HDD (several sizes, don't remember starting size), labeled with "FDHD" on the outside.

    All of these were 68000-based Macs with 8MHz CPUs.


    • SE/30 - 1 1440K floppy drive + HDD (several sizes available, don't remember starting size)

    The SE/30 had a 68030 running at 16MHz. The CPU was 32 bit, but the ROMs contained some 24 bit code, and required Connectix "Mode32" control panel to enable 32 bit mode.
