Mac Plus Monitor Latest Mac Technology

By: Harry Johnson

The Apple II and IBM PC computer lines were "cloned" by other manufacturers who had reverse-engineered the minimal amount of firmware in the computers' ROM chips and subsequently legally produced computers that would run the same software.

The Mac Plus has up to 4 Megs of RAM, and an internal 800K floppy drive. Most are tan (beige), later models were "platinum" (off-white with grey keys). This one is pictured with an optional external 800K drive, the extended keyboard, and mouse. Some units with faded colors or uneven fading are offered at a discount. The 128K and 512K look very similar but have different connectors than the Plus for printer and modem; and there are variations in labeling.

Mac Plus, tan, little to slight fading, with 4 Megs RAM, 800K floppy: ask for price, state cosmetic condition, note if you want a keyboard and mouse.

Mac 512K's or 512KE's hardly ever come up in surplus so it's hard to get more.
Mac SE FDHD or SuperDrive: The SE series of Macs have up to 4MB of memory and a 9-inch diagonal black and white CRT. For years, these SE's were relatively common as surplus. Today in 2005, they are getting hard to find, and many of them have cosmetic fading (they are turning yellow). And, at 20 years or so, their original hard drives are just wearing out.

SE, 4 Megs RAM, 1-800K floppy, no kbdmouse: ask if available and state desired cosmetic condition.

SE FDHD (super drive), 4 Megs Ram, 1.4 floppy, no kbdmouse: ask if available and state cosmetic condition.

Mac SE/30 models: The Mac SE/30 is a prized "compact Mac" system, as it will support a relatively large amount of memory with eight 30-pin SIMMS. There are also a number of expansion cards for the SE/30 for Ethernet networking and for external video monitors. Some people use them as printer servers; some just enjoy upgrading and modifying them, or using them as they are.

Mac SE/30, 8 Megs RAM, HD (see below), 1.4M floppy, no kbd or mouse.

Mac Classic and Color Classic (and II) models: Classic and Classic II systems are available; some units have some color fading. Color Classics, with their color CRT's, are even harder to find.
