    I am so happy! Today while I was at my Grandparents house I made a wonderful find!
    I found a Mac SE and a Powerbook 150 in my grandfathers study! They both work and the powerbook is like new! They have some fun old games like diamonds! They both run OS 6.0.4! Have a look!
    I apologize for the poor quality this was taken on a video camera with a still feature.

    I think I might be getting a free SE today. Can I get this thing on the net for email? browse?

    Me too!

    Today, my dad brought home a Mac Classic that has been in storage for about 4 years now! I cleaned it, and seriously, it is the best looking Classic I have ever ever seen. Has not one mis-color, or scratch/mark NOTHING!

    It was cool because it had Word, Kid Pix :D, Shadowgate, Ants, and some other really cool stuff on it. Also has a 20MB hard drive!

    I will post a picture in a while....

    Um. I know you can email with 'em, and i'm pretty sure you can browse... Probably even supports Netscape 2 (best version ever made)... I've used them on LANs before, but i think if you just pop a modem on the serial jack, toss in some drivers, it should work well...

    assuming it has a HD... if only 2 floppies, don't hold your breath...

    In respnse to theranch Central Jersey. It appears that my grandpa added a NuDesign HD to it(Below unit) It has all of its orginal floppies, and they look brand new. Only trick is to find a box. The sound still works and very well I might add. There is no Happy Computer face when you turn it on, it had the original start up with a pixelated picture of the computer and mouse.
    Here is some more eye candy!

    Not bad little computers. I actually have the same models sitting around my house along with a Mac II and a PB160. Does the powerbook have a battery? Batteries can be hard to find for these old laptops.

    My first mac was a Powerbook 150 with 16MB of ram I guess.

    I will have to check, it does have its wall plug in though. It is noisy when it starts up! Gotta love those old HardDrives!
