    If you look at the back of it you can plainly see the on and off switch.
    As for the internet.. I don't think so.

    Won't be able to get near OS X.

    6 or 7 might be doable.

    EDIT: Beat me to it. LOL

    My first experience on the internet was with a Mac Classic. I connected using Prodigy and Compuserve, then Netscape software. Heady days !

    I won't answer these already answered questions but pose something for thought. Getting TCP/IP onto it via anything else other than a dial-up RS-232 modem will be difficult (though technically not impossible).

    I once played around with Asante's SCSI to Ethernet adapter. A cool idea for what I recall to be an "Ethernet challenged" Mac.

    Similar devices are the Farallon EtherMac Microscsi Ethernet Adapter and Dayna SCSI Port.

    The shipping you paid was twice the value of that Mac Classic.
