"Well, the G3/233 called 'beige' triple pizza style comes in the same case as the 75/7600s - but they are said to be capable for OSX, if you like that - other than the mini towers of the same name"

Yeah, the 7100 is no longer with us.

The late 90's were...a dark period. After the 7100 (which served as my primary computer) died, budgets concerns lead my parents to purchase a Compaq running Windows 95. That was 1997. I eventually upgraded it to Win98SE to keep up with the times. However, I was finally able to convince them to get me an iBook G4 (the one my girl has now) when it was time to ship off to college. It's been Mac again ever since.

Lars I just noticed one of your pictures where you posted a TV/FM tuner card. I was wondering if this was a PAL version of the card. If it is do you have any spare ones lying about that you would consider selling?. I have been trying to track one down for over 12 months, but they are hard to come by in Australia.

Thank-you
Leon

This is in response to your inquiry about the keyboard II. I have no idea where it was made. It has been sold on ebay and waiting to be shipped out. You should have seen it before I cleaned it up. This was originally destined for the dump, but I pulled it out a box at my friends business and told him I would put it on ebay for him. It went for $.99 plus shipping charges.

Photoshop 1.0!!! Fantastic! I just downloaded it, and uploaded it to my "Dropbox" so I can move it over to my Classic Macs. I am really looking forward to giving this a try. Great find! Thanks so much for sharing this.
