Rick replied to Greg Acker's discussion Original blue studio display flat screen.
"Are you talking about the 15" studio display? If so, according to Mactracker, it depends on which revision you have. Can you post a photo of the port on the back? Mactracker: "Connection: DB-15 (Rev. A), VGA (Rev. B), or DVI (Rev. C)""

I plugged them both into my PowerBook 520c via the HDI-30 port and they all show up, and the CD-ROM is even bootable (I'm sure the others are bootable too, but the hard drive is just for a software archive, and Zip drive is for transferring files from newer computers).When I plugged these into my SE/30, it wouldn't…See More

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.
