I want to get a PowerBook 100 series to around out my collection, and to possible exhibit at VCF East next year (I want to do a general history of the PowerBook). I'm debating between a PB 140 for…Continue

PowerBook 140 or 165?

I want to get a PowerBook 100 series to around out my collection, and to possible exhibit at VCF East next year (I want to do a general history of the PowerBook). I'm debating between a PB 140 for around $72 or a 165 for $125.The 165 is newer, faster, has a video out (useful for troubleshooting later), supports more RAM, and this particular one looks in a little better shape than the 140, plus the seller shows it fully booting to an OS, so I know the drive is working. However, it's more money,…See More

G3 All-in-One Won't Turn on

Hello retro Mac lovers,I'm going to go look at a Power Macintosh G3 All-in-One (Molar Mac) next week. The current owner says he can’t get it to boot. He plugged it in, press the power, and it did nothing. He’s a tech recycler on the side, and said he doesn’t know anything about this machine, and didn’t want to open it due to the brittle plastics. It’s currently in ok condition from the outside, yellowed, but no visible cracks in the photos.For anyone out there that has some AIO experience, is…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.
