RetroMacCast

Where great old Macs live again!

It's been a retro goldmine the past week. One of the guys at work showed up the other day with a dead Lombard. The LCD inverter was fried. Replaced that and got video back, then swapped in a known good HD, and BONG! She fired right up. It's really beat up but runs like a champ. Makes a nice companion to my Pismo.

Then today, another friend showed up with a G4 Powerbook, 15 inch aluminum 1.67ghz. He said his kid dropped it and it was a goner. He gave it to me for parts. Two hours later, after a bit of diagnosis, it's up and running on a fresh install of Tiger. Really nice machine, and the screen is gorgeous.

Love this stuff!
