Wound out its mortal coil...

The original Mac 512K, upgraded to 512KE, and then a Plus seen in my photo died after a rough double-hit power outage. I returned it to the archive for possible repair later and replaced it with another Plus to serve as our family room clock.

Welcome Steve! You'll have to give us a rundown of your collection -- and add a profile pic when you get a chance.

1 Macintosh Classic
1 Macintosh Classic II
1 Macintosh LC

1 Macintosh IIvx with a Centris 650 badge!
1 Macintosh LC 520
2 Power Macintosh 6115
1 Macintosh Performa 6360
1 Power Macintosh 5400
1 Power Macintosh 5500
1 Power Macintosh 8600

So much for the quality of my inventory information. I found a Macintosh IIsi on a shelf in the basement that I missed earlier.

May I invite you to load at least your profile photo in a bigger view, and we're interested and curious about the storage and conditions of your collected items!

We had a huge storm roll through and took a big power hit. The blackout lasted 6.5 hours and the Mac clock (in my photo) sustained some damage. There is some banding at the top of the display. It doesn't interfere with its role as a clock, but if I ever want to use it for anything else, I'll have to break out my copy of "The Dead Mac Scrolls" to see what the fix is.

Even if it didn't sit flat, it would still fit. It would be very easy to swap out the system for a different one.
