For your consideration at this wonderful sale is a rare and vintage Apple Macintosh Color Classic from 1993, with an upgraded Logic Board containing a Motorola MC68LC040 series processor clocked at up to 33Mhz speeds. These specifications have been maxed out with 132 Megabytes of RAM, an internal spacious 300GB (Gigabyte) SCSI Hard Drive and a full installation of Mac OS 8.1, making it more attractive and interesting. Apple Ethernet Card is installed on the logic board in the PDS slot for AppleTalk and Network Connections, and the logic board features both PDS and Communication Slot connections. The PDS slot, currently occupied, supports other devices, such as graphics cards, display engines, mainframe systems, etc.. A communications slot is also available and can support a modem card or RJ45 ethernet card from Apple.
The built-in crisp Sony 9" Trinitron display supports thousands of vibrant colors in crisp quality with the upgraded VRAM memory. Apple ADB Adjustable Keyboard and matching Numeric Function Keypad with Mouse II are included, the palm rests are included with the keyboard and numeric keypad. Microphone and internal speaker is present, but sound performance and internal audio functionality is untested. SCSI port allows connection to external hard disk drives, CD-ROM drives and peripherals; the serial ports allow connections to external modems and desktop printers. There is line-in and line-out connection for audio devices, such as microphones and speaker systems. An Apple Omni-directional Microphone will be included.
This unique configuration was time consuming and took a great deal of effort & patience to make it possible for the hardware to understand that there is an internal 300GB hard drive installed, it is not possible to accomplish this unprecedented upgrade with any version of System 7. Firmware drivers were installed on the hard drive so that the Color Classic computer recognizes this drive; removal or formatting the drive again may cause the drive to be ignored by the logic board, which will ultimately render this computer unusable. 137GB is the maximum readable capacity for one partition with Mac OS 8.1. And it is not possible to install such a large capacity hard drive inside of a Macintosh Performa 575, Mac TV or LC 520/550 series machine due to the fact that Apple requires a SCSI connection bridge, which is not required in this Color Classic series. An LC 575 (Mystic) logic board is installed, however, the original Color Classic logic board and plastic panel cover are absent due the different design of the port layout and will not be included with this sale. The existing floppy drive is present, and is not tested or verified (no guarantee of functionality). CRT displays may show signs of age over the years during the first few minutes of startup, with small dark portions of the screen readjusting to full contrast, or partial burn-in, and this is considered normal for vintage computers. Color Classics have beige cases that have been exposed to sunlight and may appear to fade from platinum to tan beige or sometimes yellow.
Seller will ship USPS Priority Mail for domestic shipping throughout the United States.The equipment will be professionally packaged by the seller when shipped, however, international shipping and handling is also available throughout the world at additional cost specified here in the sale; Approximate weight of bundle for shipping is 40 pounds.I have years of experience packing Color Classics for shipment, and I insist on wrapping at least 6 to 12 inches of bubble-wrap around all 6 sides of the machine to minimize the potential for physical damage upon direct impact during handling. However, this unit is offered as-is, with no warranty, and any changes or additional modifications are not supported, as such actions are performed at your own risk. It is recommended to make a secondary back-up of the hard drive when using this machine for the first time.
Multiple units are available for purchase at this sale. Each unit will have the same exact configuration as specified in the description with corresponding accessories. Each unit purchased will be shipped well wrapped in its own box accordingly.
