Where great old Macs live again!

Do you remember the Powerbook 1400 covers?

my favorite coverYeah the Powerbook 1400 had an optional clear cover with paper inserts that you could put under the clear plastic! Ive even scanned one and used it as a template to make my own updated versions. I scanned the folder they came in and the 6 covers I have in jpeg format, all full size images, and zipped them all up. Get them here: download zip file

Well enjoy! and I hope I brought a lil smile to you retro Mac fans!

That is so cool that you've scanned the 1400 cover-images Robert!
Now I just need to sniff up a new clear cover for my 1400c. :)

My 1400 only has the black plastic sliding cover, though I would quite like to get hold of the clear cover some day so I can print my own bookcover inserts.

The clear cover becomes a blind grey one over the years, the black one will look much better.
And if anyone needs the 'muscle' cover, I can load it up.

or a 1400 with a solar panel

That's wonderful ! Does it supply the full energy the PB needs, even for the CD drive ?

i do not think there is enough power to start up with a empty battery
and the batteries of my 1400's are dead

perhaps i test it this summer

The batteries of my (4) 1400's are not the best either, and one does not work at all...
