Ben Heck's Mac Classic teardown

I just saw this and thought I'd share. If you dont' know, Ben Heck has a youtube channel where he does a lot of electrical and hardware modding. I've seen some really cool things so check out his other videos but this one is relevant to ThinkClassic. He pulls out an old Mac Classic (with cool custom paint job) and does a tear down. He is more knowledgeable than I will ever be about electronics, but it is kinda funny to listen to some of what he says about the machine. I get the impression he is more of a PC guy but hey, enjoy!

"Lets honor Steve Jobs by tearing apart a computer he had nothing to do with"

Ben needs to do a little research.

That wasn't the only thing that made me chuckle. I especially liked how he repeatedly said "Mac classic" clearly referring to all Macs of that general design...just so happened it actually was a Classic
