'Mars478, the creator of the GrayBook and the SimasiMac Smilie! I enlisted in the 68Kmla for the sole purpose of Fixing my Macintosh Classic 2, once I joined I realized that I have found an awesome community of friends. I feel very privileged to be a part of this wonderful community. Oh and my Mac Classic 2 is still dead :)


My Macintosh Computers:

MacBook (GrayBook) 2 GHz Core Duo, Heavily Modded using parts from 3 MacBooks. Here's the forum thread about the mods I did to my new Main Laptop.[1]; The Specs of the Machine are: 2GB RAM, 320GB 7200RPM Drive, 10.6.2

iMac G5, Got from free from the Computer lab I work at, The Specs of this guy are: 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 500GB, 10.5.8. This poor G5 is on it's last legs, it has the leaky capacitor problem and the Power Supply whines like a cat. I am going to either repair this machine or get me an Intel iMac White in the near future from a friend.

eMac: I got this from the computer lab as well, It sure was an interesting haul from my school. This machine is a Behemoth and has a slight problem with a Dimming CRT, Specs are: 700MHz, 1GB RAM, 40GB, 10.4.11

iBook G4 1GHZ: Got this one from a family friend who had a surplus of Macs that were unused, this person supposedly has a TiBook somewhere for me. Specs on this one are STOCK Unmodified and makes me think it was either Custom or Top line: 60GB, 1.5GB, APX, BT, Either A combo drive or Super Drive, I have to take a look to remember. This one has a two shade keyboard using keys from some spare iBook G3 Keyboards I got, and a Pink Apple because it is my Mom's current laptop. She loves it very much and promises it will return to me once I upgrade her or she gets a new laptop.

iMac G3 350MHz: Got this from the lab and for a time it was my mine desktop computer. It was replaced by my iMac G5, and it has about 640MB RAM and is currently running Mac OS 9 and has a 30GB Hard Drive

iMac G3 233MHz: Got this from the lab as will all my computers. It's running OS 8.5 and has 64MB Of RAM and has everything stock un modded. This is a REV A model and is in great condition.

iBook BlueBerry:From Lab, 300MHZ, 192MB, Running OSX 10.3.9, 3GB HD. My Second Apple Laptop. First was the now deceased iBook G4 1.33GHZ I used to own. This iBook is in B+ Condition.

iBook Graphite 466Mhz: Lab: 192MB, Running 10.4.11, 20GB HD, Very nice condition It has an airport card in it. This has a small Mod I did which is putting a Slot loading Combo Drive instead of a tray loading drive. I had to sacrifice the Bezel unfortunately and it has no bezel now.

'"iBook Graphite 466MHz "Server at the ready"': Some amount of RAM I have forgotten about, Running 10.4.11 SERVER, which I got from the lab, And has a noisy 10GB HD. Ready to be a server when one is needed. Very good condition.
