So I traded for some older macs. Got a classic, works great but floppy doesn't read, an SE, works great but high pitch whines every so often, and an LC that was D E A D......dead. So I pull it open and see capacitor goo everywhere, so I get out my toothbrush and a copper wire brush and wash it in the sink then wash in the dishwasher. I let it dry for a couple of hours and woot woot success. A color classic is in my future and I can't wait.
