Title: my apple collection
Post by: applefreak on October 09, 2006, 01:18:01 pm
i only use(d) apple computers,
i never sold one mac, so, using more then 20 years of computers i had a lot of them
3 years ago, i bought one "20th anniversary macintosh",
and i had a new hobby : collecting  "apples"
including NeXt computers

you can find a list (ranged by date) of all the Apple computers (http://idisk.mac.com/lefevere/Public/apple_computers.pdf) i own,
(vintage and recent)

Strange...

I've seen that list before somewhere else, same style, same design but some other hardware in it. And "Seriennummer" wasn't German, it was English. Will have to search my archives...

hi,
"Serienummer" isn't german, it's dutch
this list is made originally in filemaker pro with a print in compressed pdf from a second layout with less information on it.
The database is made to keep up the collection.

The lists are on the net, with some minor layout changes, since begin 2003, content growing ...
At start, all text was in dutch, no pictures,
perhaps next time i change "serienummer" in "sn#" are something like that

There are two lists :
- apple_computers.pdf only the apple related computers
- apple_collection.pdf all the apple stuff

If someone else copied my "style or design", i am proud, because it must be well done
remember, a copy is always inferior than the original

please link me to the other page
thanks

Yeah was going to leave a bid of 725 on it last night, I decided against it as I'm quitting my job soon and moving to another country so I decided that it would be better to keep my money for more important things.  I'll see if there is one in a few months.  They seem to crop up from time to time.

I noticed in your photo of the rack of macs you in front of a window.  You may want to keep to older models away from the sunlight to minimize "yellowing".  I read somewhere that the sunlight reacts with the fire retardents in the plastic causing that distinctive yellowing.

I just got my Apple //e today along with the original DuoDisk and Green / Black Monitor from Apple. Upgraded with the RAM extension to 128 kb, Z80 and TV card and the keyboard cover, tons of diskettes (Flight Simulator II Version 2.0 from 1984 for example) and some original boxings (monitor & accessory kit). I don´t know much about the machine´s others features until now but it´s from the first owner (who has forgotten quite a lot...)

The top three are in mixed states of repair. All have working motherboards, the backlit has a snapped ribbon cable so no display, the 2 others are missing hard drives. The rest are working. I also have three complete Portables in their cases hiding further back on that shelving unit next to a G3 B&W.

These were all rescues from the dumpster, it's truly amazing how much old computer equipment goes to the landfill around here..... :(

I just decided to decimate mine as there are so many boxes that I don´t have any real use for. Of course I´m keeping the jewels but I don´t see any sense in keeping all Newtons when my 2100 is the only one I´m really using, the Portable non-backlit will go, too, also some Ataris, the black Performa 5400 and some more boxes. I want to have a nice, clean, reduced and always usable setup :D

Title: my apple collection
Post by: niteshooter on November 01, 2008, 02:54:52 am
If you can believe it I have been cutting back and avoiding taking in more strays.....some stuff is too good to pass up though like that Nikon Coolscan 8000 that we were tossing out because Nikon said it's mainboard was blown and they wanted almost $1000 to fix.

I pulled it apart to find the power supply board had two fried transistors. Cost from Nikon was $157 for the board..... i doubt anyone has one of these but if you do don't block the vents on the back the main power transistor has  no heat sink and will overheat and blow.

Did send to the recycler a dozen Mac IIs and IIx's but did keep a couple of power supplies and the fx's. At one time I was thinking of building a coffee table out of them but it looked kind of tacky.

I also sent a bunch of PC's to the Salvation Army. I think I can still swing the Newton's and PowerBooks. But you know the prices on some of this stuff is just nuts like 128k's a friend who own's a used Mac computer store used to shot put the dead compacts out the back door into the backyard. Wish I had a photo of the backyard would have made a hardcore collector weep. But probably a good time to unload before folks come to their senses!  :D

We had a four skids full of Beige G'3, B&W's and Sawtooth G4's heading for the recyclers, I controlled the urge to go shopping... the amount of computer junk we have in storage here is frightening. I saw a skid of Sun stations the other day and I hear we have a storeroom full of Dell servers that are no longer being used.

(http://www.kevinomura.com/macs/collection/skidrow.jpg)

Right now around the corner from my office is a hallway full of colour CRTs some are scrap but a few of the Trinitrons probably just need a realignment.

Hmm too bad you're selling that 5400 I think on a shelf somewhere I have a DOS card for one of those..... though it might only work on the 5200. I have to check. Er you don't really need it do you.....
Title: my apple collection
Post by: Jenne on November 01, 2008, 06:15:49 am
A DOS card for the Performa line? Never knew that there was one! I'm really interested in that one (just in case it will work within a 5400). Right now I'm using my 6100 PPC as MKLinux, Mac OS and Windows 95 box and although it's the first Power PC it isn't as stylish as a black Performa.

Please let me know how to make out a deal, maybe I got something in return!

Well, I made some sort of principle in how to divide my collection: after writing some articles about hardware-specific topics in dependance to their major hardware setup I will get rid off most of my machines. This means following boxes will go sometime:

G3 MiniTower, 8500, 7500, 8100, 6100 DOS, Portable non-backlit, PB 1400 G3 Upgraded, IIsi, Quadra 700, PB 3400, Atari Mega ST, Atari STE, Atari Portfolio, Acorn Archimedes 410, Acorn RISC PC, Cobalt Qube 1 & 2 & 3, Newton OMP & 110 & 120 & 130 & 2000 (maybe even eMate), QuickTake 100 & 150, NeXTstation mono, Sun Sparc Station 10 with NeXTstep - maybe the Stacy2 will go, too.

I'm going to keep my Apple //e, Mac Plus, G4 Cube, NeXTcube, NeXTstation TurboColor, TAM, Performa 5400 black, Xserve, Network Server, Pippin AtMark, Apple Set Top Box, 9600 (indeed still my favorite classic machine), QuickTake 200, PB 145b, Newton 2100, SGI Indy and tons of Apple devotionalia.

The main reason / aspect of this split up: most of the machines I'm going to keep have some compatibility / file transfer / file converting / file serving job (besides the TAM I'm making most of my office work with). All the others are some sort of Apple-related (e.g. the Cobalt Qubes) or have been part of my youth but they don't have a real job to do.

And I think it simply looks better to give every single machine the right setup with a light spot onto it instead of a large heavy weight board with all that boxes jammed into.

Hi Jenne,

Radius made a few different DOS on Mac (DOM) cards the one I have is an MX.

Here are some links to the related cards, http://www.vintagemacworld.com/radius/domlc.html for the Mac LC cards, http://www.vintagemacworld.com/radius/dompci.html for PCI cards including your Mac and my 9600 and the PDS version http://www.vintagemacworld.com/radius/dompds.html which I have never seen.

Orange Micro also made DOS on Mac cards though I have only seen the ads and not the actual parts but continue to keep an eye out for any. Wiki has some info here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_Micro It seemed to me that OM were the only ones that made Pentium based cards so therefore fastest of the lot.

The particular card I have I think will only work on the 52xx now that I reread the links above since that is what I had it in though I'll do a bit more research as I have a second one on the way from a bundle of DOM cards I bought off eBay a couple of weeks ago. Those should turn up this week...

Kevin

Post by: Jenne on November 02, 2008, 06:30:02 am
For some odd reason OrangeMicro wasn't that popular over here in Europe and these cards were offered at very high pricings if available at all.
The longer I'm thinking about the option to "DOS upgrade" my black Performa the more I begin to like the idea :-) I have to get my hands on one of these!

Bah! Any performa I ever owned and was ready to input video had the MPEG card in its PDS slot. I still swear by that card.

BTO or upgrade options from Apple Europe were very different from Apple US upgrade and BTO options that time. Although OrangeMicro was * present * over here it simply wasn´t that popular - can´t tell You why.  Anyway my Performa has a video input card, too and I don´t really need a MPEG card.
Funny, just discovered that one of my firewire PCI cards is an OrangeMicro one :)

We shipped a Durst 138s enlarger to a friend in Rougemont a few years ago. She custom crated it and then had it shipped. It had to be brutally expensive since with crate it had to top 200 lbs and was the size of a small coffin. Took forever as well since it went via sea.

So tell me about your 5400, have you maxed out the memory to 256mb etc?

Oh nooooooooo.......! I think the cost of shipping would be brutal granted an ANS from over here to you would be even more exciting.

I was pulling apart my 6360, I think it has the same board as your 5400. I had thought I was able to run two 128MB dimms in it but it only sees 128MB so guess the most is two 64's.

I remember installing the TB/Video system and MPEG kits from the LC 630

(http://www.kevinomura.com/macs/630/630toys.JPG)

in my 6360, so these were all built in on the 5400. Interesting... did it also have the comm slot ethernet card?

Just missed out on an LC 630 DOS for $25, but shipping will be as much or more for the thing up to Canada. Hmm like I really needed it!

Hi yes it works, I haven't actually toasted anything in it though. Radio works ok, it's not great in that it has no frequency scale! You basically set the station by pushing the buttons on either side of the volume knob on the bottom.

It's fairly current, lots of them on amazon.com though I found this one at a local second hand store. Paid $4 for it, didn't make the connection with the cobalt cube until last night....

Link here http://www.geekalerts.com/kenwood-radio-toaster/ though most pix I've seen are of the silver version and a red one. This wasn't painted so they must have made these cobalt blue ones as well.

The colour of this toaster looks to be really close to that of the Cobalt Cube though I don't have a Cube to compare it too.

The lady at the second hand store didn't realize it was a radio and a toaster, it is pretty neat. Never seen another one like it yet.

Better check the condition of the pinch roller on that tape drive. I didn't and it disintegrated while attempting to read a tape and I had to rig up a replacement.

Apple originally sued Pearcom, challenging the firm's use of a pearshaped logo and the name pear II.
By changing its name and logo, Pearcom convinced Apple to drop the suit.
