    No clue. Ebay perhaps?

    Ask around in this forum, I'm sure someone will know.

    Awesome. Exactly the same as my first-ever Mac. I wrote my college papers on that kind of computer.

    I found mine a few years ago. I was going to be cheeky and do a "case mod" with NewEgg components and make it into a stand-alone mini-ATX server. It was beyond my skills at the time...

    MacintoshGarden might be a good place to start. There are a number of Apps and Utilities along with numerous games.

    I love those old 9 inch B&W Macs. I want to get a Macintosh Classic II for my room. I will just keep it on my dresser since they are so small.

    Is it true those ones have fans? Because we have a 128k Macintosh and we can not have it on very long because it gets really really hot. So is like how long you have it on not very much of a problem? :eek:

    The Classic and Classic II both had fans, as did all the Mac SE range. The 128, 512, and Plus didn't have fans. Excessive heat can kill the 128, 512 and Plus (and usually did).

    Apple revised the powerboards in them over the years but I wouldn't run one without sufficient ventilation. If you feel heat coming out the top left that's pretty normal. If you DON'T then I'd be very worried.

    If the room temperature is low and there is nothing blocking the vents near the bottom and top then it should be ok but I'm not going to guarantee it! :eek:

    Thanks for the tip :eek:

    Does anyone know a good place to buy one of these? With the keyboard and mouse and everything?
