Donor: Mary Jo "Kriss" Winchester
After hundreds of complaints (4) from Mac users that the Macintosh SE wasn't obsolete enough, we finally have an older Mac in the Museum. In addition, I finally have one at home. (It was donated by my former co-worker Mary Jo "Kriss" Winchester, who insisted that I mention her by name as part of the deal!) This particular model is the enhanced model, with 800k double-sided drives, instead of the original 400k single sided ones. The external drive in the picture actually belongs to the Macintosh SE. It also has a signed case. The frightening thing about this system is how good the Mac OS is, so early in the game. The entire OS fits in around 250k of disk space, and the whole system boots from power-up in less than 13 seconds. The external drive, eliminates disk swapping, making it a pretty usable little system. I just have one question: Where are the cursor keys? Do I really have to use the mouse just to move up a line or over a few characters? At least there's an optional number pad.
