Thread: So I bought a Mac

  1. #1

    Lightbulb So I bought a Mac

    Or rather a Macintosh, 1986 Macintosh SE with 1 MB of and 2 800k floppy
    drives. I bought it on ebay, and it only comes with a power cable. I think
    it uses PS/2 connectors which means I have a mouse and keyboard that
    should work. I'll have to reinstall the OS on it but thats not a huge undertaking.
    But yeah, $20, what should I do with it? :P

    or not, I'm not an established contributor yet, so no picture, lol.

    You should charge people admission to view the ancient artifact. Find some gullible souls, lure them in.

    Get some 8" disk drives, and you'll really be in heaven.

    oh god, haha. Apparently they're capable of browsing the web in some primitive form.
    I'm thinking I might actually use it as my desktop just for the lulz :P.

    A couple of years ago I read about a guy that had managed to get Apache running on a Palm III. It got slashdotted. But a cool project nonetheless. There is an idea for you.

    Interesting, while I have no reason to set up apache, that did somehow remind me that there are versions of linux built for older macs.

    NO, it uses ADB.

    My apologies, I use PC's, so I was just going off of what the ports look like.

    So, take the guts out and replace with more modern apple or PC (!) hardware and hack that mac! I saw this that might serve to inspire you!

    Could always get a basic word processor like MacWrite and use it for typing stuff. Old Apple serial printers can be had on eBay for dirt cheap as well.

    it's just gonna be to mess around with, I have no reason to get a printer for it, lol.
