Trash Picked Vintage Macintosh SE video :o)
 
Hi all, I recently found a Macintosh SE on it's way to be thrown out at work! The thing was black with dust and coffee had been spilt all over it! I'd never seen one before but there was a slight hope that it may work. I took it home and here is the resulting video: Trash Picked Apple Macintosh SE!!!! Plus a mysterious new computer! - YouTube

Please leave any comments you would like.

Regards

Steve

Wow! Dude thats a nice machine...I have one that still works. I have 7.5 on it. And a larger HD in it.You can hook a SCSI CD drive up to the back or a SCSI to ethernet converter if you can find one.You can print to a postscript laser printer that has an apple jack. Or use a ethernet to appletalk adapter to network laser printers that use postscript with Apple laser 8 drivers.
