Where great old Macs live again!

I brought a PowerBook 180 to work with a SCSI PowerView to see if the PowerBook could drive two external displays. Managed to get it to work!

I have a PowerBook 180 and hadn't seen the PowerView before.

Very nice!

The PowerView is one of a few SCSI to video adapters released for the first generation of PowerBook, initially for the 140 and 170. Those did not have any video out, so it was a solution to allow presentations without cracking the case open (and installing aftermarket video solutions). It seems to work with the 68k processors.

Here is a similar adapter available on ebay:

Dunno if that works with the 180.

Here's some more info:
