    Hello everyone,

    I just bought a Macintosh 512K for $5.
    The seller knew what it was and what some sell for, so I don't feel guilty.
    It's too late tonight to see if it works, so I can post more later.
    It's in great physical condition. It has a keyboard, but no mouse.

    He said it worked the last time he used it, but that was years ago. Even if it is dead, I'll keep it as a decoration.

    Two Questions:
    1) Where is the best place to look for a mouse for it?
    2) The battery in the back is corroded. Where can I find a replacement?

    Thanks everyone!

    Parts

    Ebay of course, Craigslist, or lemswap are all the most readily ways to get parts for older macs at this point. Good find with th 512, I got two 128's and both are upgraded to 512 but say apple an Macintosh on the back (ones Canadian). If I had an extra mouse I'd give it to you.
