I have a virtual museum of old Mac computers, each which run perfectly. I have a Quadra 700, that I still ue for graphic work, a PowerMac7300 with extra ran 128mb that I still use for Photoshop and designing agds and addition I have a Mac Clone, a G3 I believe. AQll 3 run perfect and still do the work they inteneded. Is there anyone inerested in buying these wonderful machines? I may keep the PowerMac7300. Actually it''s a PowerMac7200 with the guts of of a 7300. Let me now. Thanks!

By the way, all come with working monitors and have preloaded software like outlook express, Quarkexpress, photoshop, Adobe acrobat etc.

It is the Mac Plus which made an appearance in the comical Scotty/"Hello Computer!" scene of Star Trek IV. I've always loved that movie, and that Mac.

I had two of these$ one a 2MB RAM with a 40mb external SCSI HD, another 4MB RAM and 80 mb SCSI HD.
These were the first really capable Macs having SCSI, memory slots and a full keyboard.
This was the first Apple of any kind that I bought and it was an easy transition from the GEM based Atari ST GUI that I was used to previously.

My dad recently retired from teaching. He brought home a very curious looking screw driver with a long narrow shaft and a star bit. I asked him what it was. "Nate," he said "Do you remember the Mac Plus you used to play Stuntcopter, The Manhole, and Cosmic Osmo on? This drill bit was used to upgrade the RAM on the machine so it could run Cosmic Osmo when we got our first CD-ROM drive."

We ran that machine with all the RAM capability we could muster :-) It was a solid computer that taught me math, and how to read and type. I still remember playing Spectrum Holobyte''s Mac port of Tetris on it.

Wonderfully solid machine. I still have my 800KB Educorp Floppy diskettes in the house.

I have a Mac Plus IBM
Ram Model $ a9m030

I have one of the few clear plastic first laptop apple made and they only made about 100 of the clear plastic ones back in 1989 and I have the regular laptop (first one made, but not the clear plastic). How much are these worth. Thanks, Jen

The Mac Plus could actually run any os from 1.1 to 7.5. Not just 3, as the description states.

My first Mac, won in a competition by someone who decided they did not want it, and gave it to me. Thus started my love affair with Macs. I filled up the memory, and bought a hard disc for it and used to run Illustrator, in the days when you had to render what you had drawn and Photoshop. It was sad to upgrade to a newer Mac, but great to get a colour monitor.

My IT teacher still has the same Mac Plus from all those years ago - 24 years old and still running fine! There is only one problem - my IT teacher only has one disk for it, and that is the tutorial disk.

Along with the TI 99 4/A, the Mac Plus was the computer that I grew up with. From the first time I used it as a child, I was amzaed at how easy and intuitive it was to operate. Ever since then, I have been a lifelong admirer of Apple and its Mac OS. To this day, I still own the same Mac Plus and boot it up on occasion to play around with, even if for nothing more than using it as a nostalgic time machine. I will always hold a deep connection to the Mac Plus for all that it allowed me to appreciate about how great and simply elegant a computer could be.
