Hello, I am relatively new to PPC Macs and recently acquired my first one, a PowerBook 1400c/166. I'm not 100% sure of its working state just yet except that the hard drive works because I'm waiting on a charger to come in for it, but I'm looking for some more information on them since in my research there seems to be relatively little knowledge on them compared to some newer PBs. In addition, are there any good places to source parts for it? It seems like the CD drive is probably going to be impossible to come across, so I will probably wind up getting an external SCSI drive with an HDI-30 adapter. It would also be nice to do something about the enormous crack in the lid near the hinge (which also crumbles a little more every time you open and close it) but I doubt that would be fixable without another donor PB.
