How to make a Performa 6200 useful

47.jpg

I wasn't willing to give up space for a mouse on the shelf, so that's a 6200 logic board suspended upside down with a mousepad on it.  Works great, and more reliable and performant than the 6200 ever was!

Haha, nice. I actually have a boxed, non-yellowed 6200. Its staying intact because I figure that there's a chance that one day it might be a collectable with all the Performas that have been destroyed.

Yup, those solder points really hold that mousepad in place!
