A friend and I found a Mac E575 on our weekly dumpster diving circuit that actually boots. Ive kinda cleaned it up, but would like to wipe the hard drive to see what i can get it to do. The problem is im having a lot of trouble finding information on it. If anybody knows of any old mac enthusiast sites or anything, that would be a lot of help. I would also like to know what version of MacOS this thing can handle. Its currently booting system 7. even if it could go to 8 that would be great. any information would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Are you sure it is a Macintosh E575? There is nothing on the Apple site.
