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!
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: http://www.ebay.com/itm/221227422674?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_...
Dunno if that works with the 180.
Here's some more info: http://www.vintagemacworld.com/radius/pview.html
Iv'e got something like this, not sure if it is the same model/make. Will try to find it and post picture.
