"The press release for the 8600 stated 'Near' broadcast quality performance - hmmm... Not happy with the video capture performance at 640x480 - too many dropped frames. Next step, an Adaptec 2940u2W scsi controller card to improve data…"

"Thanks for the info, I'm still learning what this 8600 can do. My first copy of Premiere 5.0 came bundled with a Matrox capture card and breakout box, a very good deal at the time! The drive I found on eBay for $9.95 is a Seagate 10,000 RPM…"

" I had an extra 2GB drive that would work for the system and I found that the newer scsi drives are cheaper and faster than the old 50 pin drives. With an adapter, this 38 GB Quantum will make a good secondary drive."

" Another surprise. A Sonnet 400 G4 processor. Not stock, but I'll take it. One day I may find the stock 300 604e."

"Just one more thing to check. So far, better than expected. Next, open it up and.... So that's the trouble - upper left cage empty (no hard drive). No dust bunnies either, this case is really clean. "

Over the years I’ve collected and cared for dozens of macs until I run out of room or have to move - then I release them back into the wild (eBay, Craigslist or local thriftstore.)

The only macs I keep are laptops.
