Rounding Out 2021

What a year!

To cap it off nicely I was visiting a fellow collector today. (Hi Greg!) I wanted to drop him off some Commodore 64 stuff for his collection and he had a nice surprise for me!

Not one, but two Mac Quadra 950s. Pretty much the “top” 68K Macintoshes available!

Wow!

Banana to scale

These are truly massive full tower systems, so once I have on on it’s feet, it’ll be living under the desk, not on the shelf.

One, unfortunately, has battery damage, so tomorrow I’ll be neutralising that with the same Vinegar -> Distilled Water -> Isopropanol treatment that I did to the Amiga 2000.

I’m extremely hopeful I’ll be able to get one good one out of the pair.

†The 840av has a slightly faster 68040 in it but only can take half as much RAM. It is also not as expandable.

EDIT: I just realised I got fourteen new computers in 2021. So much for “no new systems” 😀
That’s more than half my collection arrived this year. Amazing! So much generosity from so many people!
