Hi all, I am looking to purchase an old mac that I can use for the sole purpose of writing manuscripts. My question to the group is this: how old can I go and still expect to get some practical use out of the machine? In particular I am interested to know... - at what point did Apple begin incorporating floppy drives that can be read/written on modern machines? Alternatively, is there another means of transferring files from an 80s mac to a modern computer? - I note that early versions of MacWrite were extremely limited in their capacity to work beyond 10 pages...at what point did word processors actually become capable of handing long documents? - At what point was it possible to save documents as an RTF? (software/version recommendations would be most appreciated). I have recently had my eyes on a Macintosh 128K, but have been reading that the 400KB floppy disks were a pain, that MacWrite was extremely limited (to 10 pages) by the available memory, and that converting MacWrite files to RTF is a massive undertaking...would this be a fair assessment? Based on my research, it looks to me like the Macintosh SE FDHD (with its 1.44MB disk drives, HDD and increased memory) represents the oldest (semi)practical option...has anyone had any experience with this (or older)?? Many thanks!
