Looking for Macintosh Clone
« on: August 16, 2016, 10:06:17 AM »
I'd prefer one from PowerComputing, UMAX or Motorola.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it, or break it so you can fix it!

Have you found your clone yet? I've a Motorola Starmax 5000/275 collecting a great deal of dust, if you want me to dig it out of storage.

Yes.  I might be interested.

Where do you live? Need to determine if shipping prices make it worth it.
How much do you want for it?
And do you think it may boot at all in it's current state? (You don't need to dig it out, just a guess is fine).

I've seen that stuff, but how is that relevant?

Nano,

Sent you a msg. yesterday about the StarMax. Today found a PowerComputing PowerWave 604/120 in my collection that I'm also willing to part with. (PowerPC 604 processor / 2 GB SCSI HD / No RAM.) Pulled the WD Caviar 22500 HD out of the Starmax.
