Macintosh Portable M5126

Hi, I got a backlit Macintosh Portable on Wednesday and I wanted to show some pictures to you all. smile
It does work, I ordered a battery from 360alaska. I need to recap it. It's really hesitant to turn on and displays some odd patterns when I turn it on for a second or two. The floppy drive also won't eject and it's hard to do it manually as well.

Here is the Mac booting up!

It has System 7.0.0 on it. I have to mess with the programmer's buttons to get it to turn on. It'll be my first time recapping something, kind of excited.

Running these machines without recapping them isnt advisable, as it can further damage components and make it really fun to repair :-)
