i'm finding that i have to be really careful with all this retro apple stuff, the plastic sometimes just crumbles in my hands! i ordered a Powermac 7500 from oregon, shipped to michigan… Man when i opened it up , everything in there was broken up. even the plastic power button.
This power mac 140 i am working on, trying to remove the battery was a chore, it had slightly cracked and expanded,
the plastic was crumbling on the battery, and when i opened the laptop up, all the standoff's that were mounted in plastic, all the plastic mounts were just crumbled, it was strange… but i was able to glue them back together,
maybe apple never thought anyone would be crazy enough to be working on a product that is so old :)
Also, Trying to find a 2.5 inch SCSI hard drive is alot more difficult then i thought… well there are some out there, but the price is sick… way more then what i paid for the whole laptop, but im still going to buy one , just deciding on size, batteries for these are only 30 dollars however, free shipping…
