    Here is my complete Macintosh 128k system

    I have collected early Macintosh systems for a long time and have a HUGH collection of software for Mac 128k, 512K, Plus, and Classic

    Also I have about 50 blank double sided diskettes that can be formatted for single sided 400k

    What would be best for them?

    Very cool Mac 512k setup! Having everything setup like that is sick! :D I have the matching audio cassette and a T-Shirt somewhere.

    LOL I found a copy of MacPlaymate in a box of disks my brother brought home form school a few years back. The image depicted on the screen is bar far the least 'naughty' image on the whole program... if you don't count the panic screen's fake Excel style spreadsheet. :p

    BTW it may be nicer to just have the 'attached' instead of showing the full-resolution image & the attached version.

    I'd be keeping the Double Sided disks to make backups of what you have. I'd also use one of the recommended programs to make disk images of them on a later Mac.

    Nice collection. I'd not seen the Trackball before. Is that a genuine Apple product?

    I especially love the matching phone on top of the Apple Modem (I'm a bit of phone collector too :eek: ). Can't quite see it but I assume that's a HD20 under the 512K ?

    And I do remember MacPlaymate. Pretty bad but I'd never seen anything like it on the Mac before or since. :cool:

    Now, do you have the genuine Apple power cords with the embossed Apple logo?

    Very nice setup - I love the old Imagewriter!

    And like MacTech68 said, I'd definitely hang on to the disks - those are getting harder and harder to find.

    Absolutely I have all the correct power cords and the carrying bag. The 128k has the original box and packing

    The trackball is a Kensington as is the cooler fan on the 512k

    All software is backed up on several hard drives

    I have some rare programs like the PEPSI bottle caps application that Andy Hertzfeld wrote as a desktop demo in 1982 and the original Alice program

    I bought large lots of software when it was available from dealers who moved on

    I have some Mac Classics also that I use to test software and store programs

    All my Macs talk except the earliest 128k that did not have the hardware

    I am pretty good at repairs too

    Cool. I'm impressed. Anybody who has a working MacClassic must be more than reasonably good with a soldering iron.

    I'd seen the ADB Kensington Trackball but not the earlier one. I'm glad that people are keen on collecting these and keeping them going. :)
