    Hey so I found these two at my grandparents house today. One was my family's from when I was a kid and the other belongs to my grandparents. They still have both original 15" Apple monitors from the early 90's. I was just wondering what I could/should do with these. They're both in perfect working condition

    They'll run 8.1 great. Find some old games and load em up.

    ^^^ classic Mac games FTW!

    This is also an example of a good 'in-between' Mac if you ever pick up an older machine that needs a bootable floppy to get it up and running.

    We had one of those in school at one point, I always really liked them for some reason.

    I got one for free 6-8 years ago, played around with it for a little bit. Would have been more fun if I had a bunch of old games for it.

    Unfortunately as far as classic Macs go, these are just about the worst.

    Read why here: http://lowendmac.com/tech/x200.shtml

    I have a few they're not terribly enjoyable compared to other Macs of similar vintage.

    if they are still working and maybe they do still work , then you can still put up to OS9 on them and enjoy some old Games that bring back childhood memories
