Re: Cosmo's stuff

Bought extermely nice (cleaned, retrobrighted) Apple //e platinum with AE 115-220V PSU, with box. Feels and looks almost like new. I've never seen any over here, i am in a impression that it was never sold here, even friend of mine, says he've seen some (could be, few, demo units, need to get into this).

Re: Cosmo's stuff

Picked locally an Salora Manager INFO with 5.25" floppy drive.

Too bad it did not come with power supply (machine, nor the floppy drive) so currenly i'm unable to test it.

Interesting piece of hardware, 6502A etc. but very difficult to find games (all of those few made).

Trying to look parts for it wich seems to be wild goose chase.

Re: Cosmo's stuff

Bought lately:

- Apple SC 160 - external SCSI hdd (hdd removed) - these are not so common at all.

- Apple //e
non-enhanced (never seen enhanced //e here..) PAL with french keyboard, strange, it has Swe/Fin keyboard ROM & switch - with some cards, 2x SSC, 2x I/O card, 1x Duodisk controller card.

From two locations. One guy offered me few months ago the //c and i agreed to come over in June. Now he wanted to clean up his garage and wanted to get rid of lots of stuff.

Another one was also in same area (i needed to do 400km round-trip yesterday) and had worked with Apple-retail 1982-2000. He wanted also to clean his basement.

Re: Cosmo's stuff

I have a magnet just like that.  Oddly, mine began life as a pin-back badge.  I removed the pin and glued on a magnet.

I got Apple to send me the full set of Think Different posters and a bunch of fruit iMac stuff to promote my Mac classroom/lab at school.  I gave all the posters away to kids who wanted them.  Nobody wanted Miles Davis nor James Watson, so I still have those two laminated in a tube somewhere in the garage.

Re: Cosmo's stuff

Picked an Macintosh 128k motherboard in a antistatic bag yesterday. Haven't had time to test it yet.

Also got an donation of about 200 Macintosh CD's, some Apple websales disks, Microsoft Office for Mac seed disks, various installation disks from OS 9, OSX 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 etc.

And Dylan, yes the Apple //c internal power did work just fine, thank you Sir! Very kind of you.
