PowerBook 2300c power outlet issue

I have an odd PowerBook 2300c power issue. I'm not an electrical engineer, so I'm a bit clueless. The 2300 powers on and works fine when plugged into most outlets. However, it won’t power on at all…Continue

I have an odd PowerBook 2300c power issue. I'm not an electrical engineer, so I'm a bit clueless. The 2300 powers on and works fine when plugged into most outlets. However, it won’t power on at all when plugged into other outlets.Example 1: my bathroom outlet has a grounded (let's not lie about bathroom laptop usage lol), protected GE device connected to it since it’s near the sink, this will sort of get power to the laptop, I can almost hear it powering the system, but it won’t boot.Example 2:…See More

"Thanks for the encouragement, I will check next week end I have time to sit down and take this thing apart. If I do fine that it's not 40 pin, I'll report back AND email Ian Page (the Mactracker author)."

Derek replied to Rick's discussion PowerBook 140 or 165?
"I have $20 here that says the author of Mactracker doesn't have a 165 against which he can verify that information. :-) I don't have any to check here myself either, but I do know that: everything through the PowerBook 100-5xx series…"

Rick replied to Rick's discussion PowerBook 140 or 165?
"It actually has a slight blue/purple hue to it, which I actually like lol. Mactracker says it’s it s 40-pin. So I’m thinking it’s not compatible. The 128MB is enough, but my the sound it’s making is making me nervous. Plus…"

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.
