"I threw up a little in my mouse at the thought of XP inside this case lol. This would be cool as a hackintosh though. I'd like to turn my non-working Classic II into a hackintosh one day."

Rick replied to negatv's discussion Need - System 7.5.3 (or similiar) install floppies or raw disk images
"If you want actually floppies, there's a guy on eBay that I bought 7.57.5.5 from. The disks are new, the labels are pretty decent, and the price wasn't bad. I can see if I can find the listing for you if you're interested."

Rick replied to Walter Johnson's discussion What is this cable?
"I believe I have both the card and the cable. It came with the SE/30 I bought a year or 2 ago. I never bothered with it, because I don't have an Apple II. If it's rare, I should sell it to someone who can use it. I'll have to dig it…"

Hartmut Esslinger's early Apple Computer and tablet designs

Anyone see this yet? New images of old prototypes from the 80s! I'd have to say, I'd love to own a Baby Mac and the "Macbook" if they had actually put them into production.
